Shopping at Shopee

by - January 06, 2016

Ever since people started getting more and more hooked on social media and their smartphone, online stores also made their way into our everyday lives. Now, they're not only accessible on our computers, but our mobile devices as well. It's quite impressive when you think about it, because now we don't have an excuse to say that we don't have time to shop!:)

I've tried quite a few online stores in the past and I must admit that I got addicted to online shopping. I mean, who wouldn't right? It's accessible, fast and more often than not, you get unique finds! I'm sure you've heard of the popular ones already in our local scene, so I'd like to introduce a new one!

The newest smart and secure social mobile marketplace that I got to try recently is Shopee. :)

Shopee, Southeast Asia's Newest Smart and Secure Social Mobile Marketplace is now available here in the Philippines. It's free in Apple App Store and Google Play. The new online marketplace boasts a wide range of products and is equipped with a secure payment service and innovative socially-driven features to create a more secure, fun, fast, and easy shopping and selling experience. Currently, it has millions of users across the region.

For budding entrepreneurs, Shopee also empowers them to be more effective sellers by providing access to millions of consumers at zero cost, with integrated tools to manage inventories and customer relations.

One of my blogger friends - Sarah Tirona is actually a seller at Shopee!:) If you're also a fan of her Beach Born Sea Salt Spray like me, you can purchase one at her Shopee account. :)

Aside from Beach Born, she's also selling some of her preloved items. :)

Shopee addresses common issues faced by users on other existing marketplaces such as fraud, transaction risks, and the hassle of face-to-face meetings. I, for one, am not a fan of meeting a stranger just for an item, so I prefer shipping or COD from trusted couriers.

Shoppers can now purchase their favorite products from the app with peace of mind through a secure payment service called Shopee Guarantee - this ensures that if products are not received in the previously agreed-upon condition, payment will be refunded to the buyers in full.

Before the official launch of Shopee, I was already able to try it. I personally loved my experience with Shopee because the App was responsive, I didn't experience any lags and the sellers that I encountered ( there were 3) were very accommodating and easy to reach through the in-app Live Chat function of Shopee. :)

Did I mention, they have a hashtag function, allowing users to easily search for the most popular trending product or keep up with the latest trends. Fancy! Who says only Twitter and Instagram can have hashtags?? =P

Some of my favorite Shopee seller are the following:

 The Atelier - Cute home decors that will surely add more quirk to your place
♥ Tsum Paradise - If you love Disney characters and Tsum Tsum, this is the shop for you!
♥ The Trinkets Project - I found cute charms for my bracelet here :) Affordable too!

Like I mentioned above, we got to try out the App at the official launch. But since I was already familiar with the App, it was easy peasy!

Sorry for the blurry pictures, but I bought a cute off shoulder top from Rafaela Couture. Even if the seller was personally present at the venue, we still did our transaction the Shopee way - via the App. :) Our transaction was done in less than 5 minutes! Quick and easy! ;)

My good friends Pax who got so confused on which items to buy, because there were so many to choose from! Haha! And Mark from Shopee! Congrats, Mark, My Twin Megann ( not in photo) and to your Shopee Team! :)

So if you're tired of the usual online stores that you're visiting and you're glued to your mobile phone 24/7, it's about time to download Shopee!
