Leading e-commerce platform Shopee starts the year with another rewarding treat for customers.
In a bid to promote cashless transactions, shoppers who top up their ShopeePay, the platform’s integrated mobile wallet, during its first-ever ShopeePay Cashless Festival will get a chance to win P10,000. Eligible participants are those who will top up at least P300 or transfer P1 during the promo period that started on Jan. 21 and runs until Jan. 28.
“With the launch of our inaugural ShopeePay Cashless Festival, Shopee encourages more consumers to adopt digital payments for a safer, more rewarding, and seamless shopping experience,” said Shopee Philippines director Martin Yu.
According to Yu, Filipinos are slowly embracing a more cashless lifestyle, made possible by electronic wallets.
In addition to the grand prize, ShopeePay users also enjoy free shipping (for first time ShopeePay users purchasing at least P149), coins cashback, and more exclusive rewards.
The coins cashback includes 20 percent on gadgets, home and living, mom essentials, and sports and motors categories. While those who pay their bills with a minimum spend of P800 get 15 percent of their cash back, or 20 percent on Jan. 28 only.
Other deals include 50 percent on e-vouchers, P1 deals, and flash deals on mobile load and data.
ShopeePay is regulated by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. It allows users, aside from topping up or loading their e-wallet, to also purchase items on the platform and withdraw. Non-verified accounts have a monthly balance and daily purchase limit of P50,000, while verified accounts can purchase in one day or have a maximum of P100,000 in their ShopeePay.
E-commerce platforms such as Shopee have been popular among consumers for offering a wide range of products. The convenience of having them delivered straight to the customer’s doorsteps and paid for via a variety of options also plays a huge role.
Some of the items popular on the platform, especially last year when many shifted into a work-from-home set-up, are office and home items that promote productivity and comfort for home-bound employees.
Shopee recommends the following 10 items that can help maximize efficiency at home:
Papemelroti planner whose 100 percent recycled paper features monthly spreads printed in black and white to help WFH folks stay on top of their deadlines.
