Coexistence Cooperation

Free Broadcasting for Small and Medium-sized Companies

The Free Broadcasting for Small and Medium-sized Companies is a program organized together with the Ministry of SMEs and Startups since 2013 which aims to assist small and medium-sized enterprises without experience in home shopping broadcasts. It offers consulting on entry procedures, commission benefits, and the sale of high-quality products from local SMEs. In August 2021, the program was rebranded as “Together Win-Win House” with the new slogan “Building Value Together” and expanded the broadcasting time by doubling it compared to before, as well as expanding the broadcast channels to include TV and T-commerce. Particularly, Lotte Homeshopping hosts a live broadcast of the program monthly during daytime hours on weekdays to cater to high customer demand, rather than airing pre-recorded shows in the early morning when viewership is typically low.

The selection process for the Free Broadcasting for Small and Medium-sized Companies is conducted through participation in product selection and evaluation sessions organized by the Small and Medium Business Distribution Center. During these sessions, the representative MD from Lotte Homeshopping selects suitable products for broadcast and discusses broadcasting details with partners of related products to finalize the broadcasting plan. Following this, partner companies can proceed with SME free broadcasting by completing new company registration procedures, including partner training and new transaction applications facilitated by Lotte Homeshopping.

*Broadcasting may be delayed or canceled in case of issues such as product quality and inventory problems during the entry process.

Fund Support

Lotte Homeshopping cut down the payment date to 7 days, which is the shortest in the industry, after March 2015. To provide more substantial support for partner companies, we run a KRW 100 billion joint growth cooperative fund and KRW 10 billion interest-free fund support. In JUNE 2017 , we expanded the fund from KRW 100 billion to KRW 200 billion, and partners from various categories are currently using this fund. We plan to expand the scope of support and provide more opportunities to other partner companies.
