Shopee Online Shopping As The World’s Longest Christmas Season Starts in PH


We Filipinos start preparing for Christmas as early as September.The moment the “-ber” months arrive, it means that Christmas is right around the corner. With an approximately 90% Christian population, 80% of whom are Catholic, it is no wonder that Christmas in the Philippines is one of the most important and widely celebrated occasions. It is also probably the world’s longest Christmas season, with festivities starting as early as September -- one sees massive displays of parols and Christmas decor, hears Christmas songs playing non-stop in malls, and smells bibingka and puto bumbong being sold from sidewalk stalls.

Christmas shopping for friends and loved ones is a must-do for the season, but malls start to experience increased traffic as the holiday rush sets in. However, Shopee provides a convenient alternative to Christmas shopping. As the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, it lets you shop effortlessly with its easy-to-use platform that is accessible from wherever and whenever. With approximately 2 million active listings for sale, there is something for everyone on Shopee -- from kids’ toys and cosmetics to mobile gadgets and more. There is now no need to jostle among malls’ crowds, or to lug multiple shopping bags home. With Shopee, you can get all your Christmas shopping done in just a few taps and have them delivered straight to your doorstep. 

From September onwards, Shopee will be launching a series of Christmas deals and promotions. Shoppers should look out for Shopee’s Christmas Super Sales from October 30 to December 25, especially their 11.11 and 12.12 online shopping events on November 11 and December 12, respectively. Both will feature huge deals, flash sales and giveaways during the period leading up to, and on the event day itself. To top it off, Shopee users can also enjoy Free Shipping nationwide and opt to pay for orders via Shopee’s Cash on Delivery (COD). For those looking for Christmas gift ideas, Shopee will also release its annual Best Selling Gifts guide for inspiration. 

“Christmas is the season of giving, and Shopee Philippines would like to take this opportunity to give back to our loyal users. We understand how busy everyone is during the holidays, so we want to make it easier for everyone to do their holiday shopping,” said Macy Castillo, Head of Commercial Business for Shopee.
