Have you ever wonder how did kindlemalaysia.com get started?
It was way back in 2011, when one of us ( SH) was finally getting his hand on this little eBook reader device called Kindle. That was a time when people still did eCommerce transaction by offline channels– you put up your product listings on the web, and if a buyer wants your product, you and him agree on to meet in real life for the transaction to happen.
We thought that there might be a better way to do this whole thing– why not just conclude the whole transaction over the Internet? In that way, the buyer and the seller don’t have to meet, and we all save our precious time!
So when this website was launched, with the believe of Painless Way to Buy & Own Kindle in Malaysia, we hope to give equal opportunity for all avid readers to experience the ease of finding their Love & Joy (aka books) in timely manner via Amazon Kindle eReader. We realize the idea and concepts presented here may be important, but they are secondary. They are no more than a signpost pointing toward realizing a better way to find our Joy & Love in a timely manner using Amazon Kindle eReader.
There are some of the questions raised: “How do I know that you are legit?”, “who are you and will you run off with my money?” etc etc. A lot of people seemed to think that we are scam.
In a way, the questions we received reflected the skepticism the general populace had back then on the eCommerce. Now, 8 years had passed, Amazon has still not yet shipped Amazon Kindle to Malaysia as Malaysians become more receptive towards eCommerce and online retailing. But this doesn’t mean that the trust issue with eCommerce had been fully resolved. And probably it never will be.
In fact, you shouldn’t really trust any sellers, be they online or offline.
How do you know that the seller will deliver as promised?
How do you know that the seller is willing to do warranty for you?
How do you know that the seller will not just kaput and disappear?
You honestly don’t. All you can do is to choose your seller wisely, based on his track record.
