Shopee On-The-Go

With sooooo many apps in the market, it's hard to find one that is the best! Well, through working from home on my e-commerce mini business (selling baby related products). I used a few social media platforms and mobile apps to bring my product offerings to more customers!

That's when I found "Shopee". Overall the logo enticed me to kick-start an account with it. Bright sharp orange shopping bag! (You can never go wrong with a shopping bag lo~)
Official Website: http://shopee.com.my/mobile/
Official Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ShopeeMY
Official Instagram: https://instagram.com/shopee_my/

After installing it, I tried to post up some products and apparently it's pretty easy to use! So I tried with 1 product to see how long will I get an enquiry or a buyer from it.


NOT even 1 month! I received my first enquiry! This is faster than all the other apps I've been using!!

Okay, let me sidetrack a little and give you a background check on what is "Shopee"? 
Shopee is a mobile marketplace designed for both buyers and sellers to enjoy fast, smooth and safe transactions. With their in-app functions, you can easily turn your clutter into cash and share the fun with your friends! Shopee aims to create a simple and secure mobile marketplace for everyone to buy and sell, anytime, anywhere.


Now I do get this question quite a number of times. "Why don't you sell on instagram?"

Here's a simple breakdown "why"

1. Instagram it's too brief, even me as a buyer, I do not feel secure buying from instagram, let alone sell on instagram. (FYI, Instagram is made for sharing photos la not for shopping la....) 


2. I prefer to interact personally with the buyer/seller and not comment in the open for everyone to see the conversation and my personal details like postage or even banking account. 


3. U know how difficult it is to do payments to sellers without a credit card merchant?! And good quality items don't come cheap! But "Shopee" app accepts payment via Credit Card/Online Banking. As a buyer, perfect la! As a seller, BINGO! You even save the hassle of checking your bank account if the money is in already or not... "Shopee" will do all the matching to ensure that the payment is correct and then bank in to your account after the item has been delivered & received by the customer. Fair deal!

Plus, Shopee Guarantee ensures that the seller ships only after the buyer has paid, and the buyer’s payment is transferred to the seller only after receiving the product. 


4. "Shopee" customer service, just give them a call if you have any enquiries. That's what I did when I wanted to find out how "Shopee" payment works. You can also call them if you have any payment, delivery or even product quality enquiries. Even their mobile app has all the easy navigation menus to help you get started with the "Shopee" app.


5. Again, with "Shopee" app as a seller you get to widen your customer base to "Shopeeholics" and as a buyer, you get to enjoy shopping on-the-go!


6. I must mention this feature! If you like what you see on the app, you can share them with your friends & family! Like how I share my store on "Shopee" to my friends & family so they know where to find me hehe...



And did I mention that "Shopee" app is free for all smartphone users (Android and iOS) to download and use. Don't believe? DOWNLOAD here NOW!
