by Martin Li

JD.ID, the e-commerce joint venture of JD in Indonesia, has launched a feature named Nearby Shops on its website and mobile app to support micro-, small- and medium-sized businesses in the country during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Brand partners and merchants can register their offline stores and location with the help of the feature. Then the system will give exposure to their stores by displaying a list of stores closest to buyers’ locations. Meanwhile, customers can easily find the nearest stores.

“With the Nearby Shops feature, JD.ID aims to provide versatility to loyal customers while delivering a memorable shopping experience with a fresh approach,” said Eyvette Tung, director of offline stores at JD.ID.

Currently, the feature is available for customers in the Jabodetabek region with Gojek providing on-demand logistics services.

“In the future, JD.ID will work with more partners to present a wider, higher quality and more original products range with a larger coverage area and reliable, fast and accurate delivery services,” said Tung.

The feature can also help customers in the region to quickly spot eight JD Hubs– JD’s offline retail store chain for daily necessities.
