SHOPEE has finally announced its 2nd annual, Southeast Asian-wide, Shopee 9.9 Mobile Shopping Day with better discounts and promotions in a press launch last Aug. 23 at the Manila House Private Club Net Park in Taguig.
The event, slated from Sept. 1 to 9, will include discounts that goes up to 99% off, top picks for only P99 in multiple categories and daily promos and giveaways via social media accounts and the Shopee app.
Shopee 9.9 will be a Southeast Asian-wide event to be launched in seven countries, including Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia.
“Last year, our 9.9 Mobile Shopping Day successfully achieved a five-fold increase in orders and three-fold increase in traffics within 24 hours,” said Macy Castillo, Head of Commercial Business at Shopee. “This year, with over P50 million worth of marketing activities, we aim to increase traffic by five times and triple our sales. We look forward to having all users across the Philippines join us in the biggest sale of the year.”
Shopee now has a gross merchandise value of $3 billion since it came to the Philippines in 2015 with more than 50 million downloads and 100 million listings. The platform now has major partners such as PLDT Alpha Enterprise, Johnson & Johnson, Oppo, Lysol, Sandisk, Mustela and Makeup World.
The launch was graced by one of Shopee’s newest endorsers, Ina Raymundo.
Shopee is a Southeast Asian eCommerce platform that has only been open to Filipinos since 2015. They have programs such as Shopee Guarantee which offers a secure transaction between the buyers and the sellers and Shopee University that allows the sellers to know more about strengthening their business.
Shopee Philippines had also recently celebrated their 2nd anniversary last June.
