Products that have passed the review will be displayed on the platform for customers to purchase automatically. For rejected products, sellers can check the “Failed” section in the product management-violation option tab, click “View Details” to understand the reason for refusal, or select “Edit” to adjust the document information. If sellers publish products in batches, controlled products will be located in the product management-draft option tab.

This requires the platform to establish a complete supply chain management system, including the audit and management of seller options, as well as monitoring and evaluation of suppliers.

For sellers on the Lazada platform, it may increase some costs and workload, but it will also help improve consumers’ shopping experience and trust, enhance the sustainable development of the e-commerce industry.
