Mr Zhou Junjie, Chief Commercial Officer, Shopee, said, “Our year-end shopping festivals have evolved to be more than about the deals. Shopee has pioneered efforts to expand our digital ecosystem to help more consumers, businesses and communities access and benefit from e-commerce. We aim to bring more joy to shoppers by curating the best deals so that they can save more on the things they love. We will also make 11.11 more meaningful and impactful by providing better support to help businesses of all shapes and sizes grow together. There is no better time than now to make the move online. I invite everyone to join us in making this the biggest, and most impactful 11.11.”
To help more people access the benefits of e-commerce, Shopee introduced initiatives such as welcome gifts and vouchers for new shoppers, with over 5 million welcome gifts for new Shopee users across the region redeemed.
