Shopee Philippines: Cheers To 2 Years Of Success and Beyond

Thursday, June 22, 2017


It's Shopee's 2nd birthday and there's no better way to celebrate than to revisit what has happened in the past two years and take a look at what's in store for the years to come.

Plus, what's a birthday party without a treat? I'll give you a link for the special promotions.

Let's talk about millions!

Shopee is the #1 shopping app in the Philippines and the figures can never lie about the success it has achieved in such a short period of time. To date, Shopee has over 2 million listings and 3 million downloads. What makes the shopping platform appealing to online shoppers is the programs they introduce with the Filipino consumers in mind and at the same time allowing aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to set up their online stores. Free shipping, Cash on Delivery (COD), and Shopee University are some of the programs that both sellers and buyers enjoy.

Safe, Convenient Shopping


Buying and selling online is a matter of trust. It is important that both parties are protected. Shopee has made online shopping convenient with its highly customer-centric platform. Sellers and buyers are able to transact safely through Shopee Guarantee, which holds payments in escrow until buyers receive their orders.

Shopee University

Shopee University is a series of in-depth tutorial modules aimed at helping sellers to up and grow their online businesses. Shopee has hosted sessions in over 30 cities around the country and thousands of participants have joined in the past year. The free classes provide more insights on topics such as online marketing, digital photography, and tutorial sessions on Shopee's features, among others.

"Shopee's campaigns help us with our product marketing. With its reach, it helps us to expand our customer base and reach," said Angela Mae Delajero, Corporate Sales Supervisor of Messy Bessy.

New Partner Brands

The list of partner brands keeps growing with the addition of Oppo, Unilab, Stabilo, Kodak, Transcend, and Eureka. More brands are expected to join in the coming months.

"As e-commerce gains more popularity, Shopee will continue to be a strong player in this space. Our partnership with Shopee will further increase our online reach and give customers more options to buy official OPPO products," said Stephen Cheng, Brand Manager of OPPO Philippines.

Ellen Lising, President of Ellen's Skin Care and Permanent Cosmetics, agreed, "As we celebrate our 38th anniversary, we've partnered with Shopee to reach our growing list of diverse clientele and we will provide the most beautiful, intense and radiant kind of products and services that make our clientele feel confidently beautiful in and out."

Looking Ahead

Shopee seeks to continuously improve its platform and optimise overall user experience. According to Macy Castillo, Head of Commercial Business for Shopee, "We continuously challenge ourselves to find ways to improve our app and system to make online shopping easier. We regularly get feedback from our users and aim to bring them the best online shopping experience." Moving forward, Shopee aims to further expand its user base nationwide. "We want to cater to every buyer and seller in key cities and provinces. With our robust and well-integrated platform, we're confident that we can provide an easy and hassle-free shopping experience nationwide," added Castillo.
