3ciety launches new marketplace to empower individuals to monetise ideas through merchandise

3ciety launches new marketplace to empower individuals to monetise ideas through merchandise

April 3rd, 2017 – Kuala Lumpur based e-commerce startup Threeciety Sdn Bhd, previously known as ‘Threes & Tees’, launched its 3ciety e-marketplace at 3ciety.com to help individuals create and sell merchandise online today.

Selling merchandise online is big business. Just in the last decade, fashion e-commerce stores and marketplaces have bloomed in Malaysia and across South-East Asia.

However, high upfront costs, insufficient management resources, the risk of unsold inventory and the fear of failing have discouraged many from taking the leap to start their own merchandise lines.

3ciety, which has a track record of working with brands like Astro on their 2016 blockbuster ‘Ola Bola’ to help them market and sell their merchandise online, is now opening up its on-demand platform to enable anyone to create and sell their custom-designed merchandise online.

Without any paywall of upfront or recurring fees, 3ciety is looking to bring the cost of starting your own merchandise line right down to zero!

3ciety’s CEO and founder Ija Mohan says the entire process is easy and completely automated.

“3ciety offers sellers an array of customisable products which they can upload their designs onto or they can leverage our free and easy-to-use designer tool to create their own designs from fonts and cliparts,” he says.

“Each product has a minimum selling price, or base price, which the seller can mark up as they wish.

“Anytime a customer buys a seller’s product, 3ciety manages the entire fulfilment process, from order processing and manufacturing, to delivery and customer service.

“We then deposit the profits into the seller’s account,” he adds.

Ija believes the platform would help non-designers and organisations as well.

“Content sells, whether it’s a great design on a t-shirt or a simple trending hashtag on a tote-bag,” he says.

“With our online designer tools, anyone can create products online without relying on complex and expensive design software’s.

“Groups, clubs, societies and others can use the platform to sell to their community without worrying about budgets, order quantity, product sizing, delivery or fulfilment.

“3ciety can also be used as an avenue to raise funds,” he adds.

The 3ciety platform is web and mobile-responsive, but the company also plans to roll out a mobile app later this year that will focus on empowering and driving community engagement between sellers and consumers.

About Threeciety Sdn Bhd

Founded as ‘Threes & Tees’ with a focus on helping brands, Threeciety Sdn Bhd has been rebranded to reflect its new vision of an open merchandising marketplace for all. The rebranded company and new platform aim to build a regional ecosystem for Designers, Brands & Fans.

This dream is hardcoded into the brand by reflecting the amalgamation of 3 communities into 1 society…  3ciety!

Driven by the brand’s “Express, Engage & Experience” motto, 3ciety aims to empower designers’ expression, build brand engagement and deliver a great fan experience for Malaysia, and soon, across South-East Asia.

Having raised a seed round from Cradle Seed Ventures in 2016, the team aims to raise their Series A round next in line with their regional push.

Tiguan receives the German Design Award 2017

The German Design Council has announced the winners of the German Design Award 2017. A Volkswagen brand model is among this year’s winners: the Volkswagen Tiguan has been selected as a winner in the “Transportation” category and honoured with this prestigious and preeminent award.

The German Design Award is the sixth award won this year by the new Tiguan for outstanding automotive design. The Volkswagen design team led by Klaus Bischoff has given the second generation of this popular compact SUV an elegant appearance. The new Tiguan is longer, wider and lower in height compared to its predecessor. These new dimensions have been achieved in no small part through the use of the MQB (Modular Transverse Matrix). The result is a striking SUV profile with distinctive proportions and a very dynamic design. At the front, the radiator grille and LED projection headlights unit (fitted as standard in the Highline equipment option) emphasises the powerfully upright overall impression.

Established in 2012, the German Design Award is one of the most prestigious design competitions in the world and is highly regarded well beyond expert circles. This coveted prize is awarded by the German Design Council. Founded in 1953 by the German Bundestag as a foundation, this international committee is one of the world’s leading centres of excellence for communication and brand management within the design field.

The all-new Tiguan is set to launch early April, for more information on the all-new Tiguan, please visit your nearest Volkswagen authorized dealer or visit www.volkswagen.com.my.

Folk remedy for gout

Folk remedy for gout

Gout patients would be at a loss when the fearsome gout strikes them with sheer physical and mental pain rages on. From folk remedy to traditional Chinese medicine, Western medicine, and self medication, gout patients have been searching far and wide to treat their illness.

Throughout humankind history, many types of gout therapy have been practiced. People have used heat therapy, cold therapy, herbal therapy, and pharmaceutical drugs to treat gout. Chen Cang-qi, a renowned medical practitioner during the Tang Dynasty in Ancient China, introduced tea therapy as an alternative.

Medical science advancement has helped to produce new drugs in both Western and Chinese medical fields. At the same time, more and more folk remedies have also surfaced and spread. For example, some believe that the consumption of the juices from one to three coconuts each day, with an interval of one to two hours for two to three months consecutively can get rid of gout symptoms ultimately.

The present medical studies suggest that gout cannot be cured completely, but it can be better managed through right mediciations that control the uric acid level to prevent joint inflammation.

Pharmacologists at DALTON, Australia discovered that drinking hot (Australian cudweed flower) herbal drink can significantly help to reduce one’s uric acid and joint pain relief.

They found that Australian cudweed flower contains rich anti-gout ingredients that can break down stubborn tophi effectively. SORNADO Tea Bag was later produced as a result of years of extensive studies that packs 100% natural goodness of Australian cudweed flower into the convenient tea-bag for ease of preparation and consumption.

SORNADO Tea Bag was not only an ideal solution for sufferers with high uric acid and gout, but also suitable for anyone who are concerned with their uric acid level and daily health maintenance. Be it for treatment or general health, SORNADO Tea Bag is worth a try.

The number 1 water purifier brand* in Malaysia will organize a 10 Kilometre run to raise awareness regarding the importance of water to our health.

Coway, a Korean company that emphasizes on premium water filters continues its record of championing health related issues by highlighting the importance of hydration during exercise.

Water is the most important nutrient that humans need. One can go several weeks without food, but three days without water and a person risks death. This is because with 75% of our bodies being made out of water, it is the most abundant compound in the human body.

Studies show that being properly hydrated can lead to a higher level of efficiency in the execution of our daily routine. In fact, dehydration can cause severe mental fatigue and an increase in memory problems. The reason for this can be found In the nutrients that our brain is composed of.

The marathon couples drinking water, the main source of hydration, with exercise, the main cause of dehydration, in a powerful message to the public on how both are equally important and emphasizes on the need to maintain the balance between the two in order to ensure a healthy body.

With an impeccable reputation of stringent testing of their products, making sure that each of their machines go through a million tests before it reaches its consumers, the company hopes that the 10k run will encourage participants and those around them to hydrate themselves.

The company also states that they send service experts they have dubbed Coway ladies or “Cody”, to homes once every two months to carry out regular servicing of these devices, ensuring that they are working at maximum efficiency and guarantee clean drinking water.

Coway’s growing customer base of 6 million homes is a testament to the success of their product and the strict quality control practices that the company implements will only further improve their track record as the best source of purified water in the country.

The Coway run will include a 10 Kilometre trail and will run alongside a 5 Kilometre fun run. Registrations are open to ages 18 and up and can be registered at http://mro.myraceonline.com/cowa17/registrations before 16th of April.

Be a hydration advocate and join the Coway run on the 7th May. You will be thrilled to find Malaysian runners in all shapes, sizes, moods and mindsets, like the walkers and talkers, the snails and the Olympians. Haven’t run enough to know who are them?
