6 years ago, I began my journey in export ecommerce. I formed a team of like-minded individuals and we set course to develop our business. Together through thick and thin and with very limited resources, we secured more than 10000 orders with a value exceeding MYR 2 million per year in Brand Sales (we only sell our own manufactured products). Three years later, we formed Everpeaks Consulting because we realised that our knowledge and experience can be shared with and applied by any Brand Owner/Manufacturer to grow their business, especially on Amazon and eBay.

Team Everpeaks

 

In 2019, we reached another milestone in our business. We formalised our partnership with two of the largest ecommerce organisations in the world; Amazon and eBay. Everpeaks Consulting is the only eBay Channel Partner in Malaysia and Amazon Service Provider Network Member in South East Asia!
