What is Shopee?

Shopee. It’s a platform designed specifically for the region, offering customers a simple, secure, and quick online shopping experience, as well as solid payment and logistical assistance. Shopee aspires to improve its platform on a regular basis in order to become the regions preferred e-commerce destination.

The History of Shopee

Shopee was founded in Singapore in 2015 and has since spread to Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines. Throughout Greater Southeast Asia, Sea is a leader in digital entertainment, e-commerce, and digital financial services.



Shop with ease with Shopee Guarantee

Have you ever been irritated because an item you ordered online is taking too long to arrive, and you suspect you’ve been deceived by sellers? Shopee, on the other hand, offers a solution for you. Shopee Guarantee provides purchasers with peace of mind by releasing payment to the seller only after you have confirmed that you have received your goods. After their payment has been confirmed, consumers may expect to get their items within 10 days. Isn’t it simple but reassuring enough?


Free shipping

That’s right, you read it accurately. Shopee offers free shipping on orders above 5 kg. Shipping prices are subsidized with it, and are capped at a maximum of 5KG for delivery in West Malaysia and 1KG for deliveries in East Malaysia. The program reimbursements will be restricted at RM2 for deliveries to West Malaysia and RM4 for deliveries to East Malaysia for every order with a minimum expenditure of RM25 per store, saving you money in that segment.


Lowest Price Guaranteed Deals

Gone are the days of wondering if you got the best deal in town and scratching your head. The prices shown in Shopee’s Lowest Price Guaranteed area are the lowest you’ll find anywhere. Your wallet will beg for mercy. Let’s pretend you discovered a better offer on another e-commerce site. Shopee, on the other hand, has a few items for you. They’re so sure that they have the best prices on the market that if you find a cheaper goods on another e-commerce platform, they’ll refund you 125 percent of the difference in price.
