Online shopping is a rapidly growing activity in Malaysia as Malaysians find buying products and services via the web an integral part of their daily lives. In a study done last year by the Nielsen Company, the Malaysian online shopping market has reached RM1.8 billion in 2010 and is estimated to grow strongly and hit RM5 billion by 2014.

1.1 million online shoppers spent on average about RM 2,461 a year. Online purchases in the local market garners a market share of 45%, worth RM825 million.
Now, a new player in the online shopping/auction market has emerged. Malaysian-conceived Chika Pow Wow (CPW) is a fresh, fun new take on the online buying and auction space. True to its quirky, catchy name, Chika Pow Wow is a fun, exciting alternative shopping experience to users where users will be able to grab great products and crazy offers and even be rewarded with mystery gifts!
One of the key attractions of CPW is the availability of new, rare and innovative products not currently available in local retail channels – like wireless Monster headphones from USA and Burberry Blue Label from Japan. Audiophiles, gadget lovers and fashionistas will definitely appreciate this. Footie fans will also be chuffed to know that there will be special edition Euro 2012 jerseys for auction!
I’m currently bidding on a Sony Playstation 3. Come join the fun. The secret sauce is Chikas, a virtual currency that powers all auctions.
CPW is a fun, safe, secure online shopping experience. To enhance the auction experience, CPW limits bids on big tech items so that users have a fair share to win.
Signing up is free and easy. Oh, and the site comes with cutesy avatars too.
