KUALA LUMPUR, 21 January 2022 – GOOBAT isn’t a typical online pharmacy. GOOBAT was founded in 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, with one mission in mind: to make quality health and personal care products and services affordable and accessible to the many Malaysians affected by the COVID-19 pandemic’s lockdowns.
Rather than taking the unknown risk of entering a physical pharmacy during the pandemic, GOOBAT set out on a mission to bring the pharmacy to the public while also supporting local pharmacies around by connecting physical pharmacies to customers who require urgent and immediate access to professional health services and products at the single click of a button.
Along with the mission of supporting local pharmacies, Goobat launched a business opportunity programme called Goobat Kawan, which targeted people interested in becoming entrepreneurs as well as the public who wanted to make a side income in the healthcare industry.
Goobat Kawan is introduced for several reasons, the first of which is to provide job opportunities for the people to gain experience, skills, and demonstrate their entrepreneurship. Second, health precautions such as having access to high-quality health information can help people manage their own health as well as their loved ones. Third, as an inflation-proof industry, the healthcare industry provides a necessity that consumers will always purchase and is resilient to economic shocks.
Following that, Goobat Kawan provides community service, assisting in the improvement of people’s lives that you serve
According to the Malaysian Ministry of Health, out-of-pocket (OOP) spending on the healthcare industry in 2019 is more than RM 20 billion. The OOP trend is on the rise as a result of the market’s growing health consciousness.
It can be seen that people are becoming more willing to spend money on their health. In terms of healthcare spending per capita, Malaysia spent USD 427 per capita in 2018 (equivalent to RM 1,789 per capita).
Over ten years, spending increased and eventually doubled from 2009 to 2018. As a result, spending per capita is expected to reach approximately RM 3,500.
Goobat Kawan is an affiliate program in which you will receive more discounts the longer you stay with Goobat. Furthermore, you will earn rewards through the program based on how many sets of your contacts subscribe to the packages offered.
There are two types of subscriptions: premium and DIY. DIY kits that include any medications, supplements, or household items. While the premium packages include a variety of medications in the form of beauty and healthcare products.
“As a convenient online pharmacy, Goobat is dedicated to providing people with high-quality customer service where everyone has access to health care products and support through our ‘Chat With Pharmacist’ feature. We focus on affordability and variety so that you can find the medication that is right for you at an affordable price.
