Social mobile marketplace Shopee is now the number one shopping app in PH as it marked three million downloads in both Google Play Store and Apple App Store plus two million product listings since its launch last 2015.

Across Southeast Asia, Shopee has recorded more than 40 million downloads and has achieved an annualized Gross Merchandise Volume of $3 billion USD.

Happy 2nd birthday, Shopee PH!

“It has been an unbelievable two years for us. When we started the app, all we wanted to do was to create a very convenient shopping platform for our buyers in the Philippines. In two years, it's amazing with the number of people who joined us. As we grow more here in the Philippines, expect a number of brands that will join us on Shopee to give you the best shopping experience,” said Macy Castillo, Head of Commercial Business for Shopee.

Bringing convenience to online shoppers, Shopee assures both its sellers and buyers to a safe and seamless way of purchasing products by offering Free Shipping, Cash on Delivery (COD), and Shopee Guarantee. Shopee also helps its sellers improve their skills on m-commerce through a series of in-depth lectures and free classes which they dubbed as Shopee University.

Shopee also shared its plans of further improving its platform and expanding its business to reach more sellers and buyers across the country.

“We continuously challenge ourselves to find ways to improve our app and system to make online shopping easier. We regularly get feedback from our users and aim to bring to them the best online shopping experience.  We want to cater to every buyer and seller in key cities and provinces. With our robust and well-integrated platform, we’re confident that we can provide an easy and hassle-free shopping experience nationwide,” added Castillo.

As part of its 2nd year celebration, Shopee Philippines welcomed new partner brands to be included in its roster of products which includes Oppo, Unilab, Stabilo, Kodak, Transcend, and Eureka.

OPPO smartphones are now available in Shopee PH.

“As e-commerce gains more popularity, Shopee will continue to be a strong player in this space. Our partnership with Shopee will further increase our online reach and give customers more options to buy official OPPO products,” shared Stephen Cheng, Brand Manager of OPPO Philippines.
