SHOPEE, an e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, kicks off its biggest annual regional shopping event, Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day. After last year’s 9.9 event which saw a three-fold uplift in orders and a five-time increase in site traffic, Shopee is upping the ante this year with a 14-day mega shopping event from Aug 27 to Sept 9.
With over 10,000 sellers, 120 brands, and 40 corporate partners on board, users can enjoy a diverse range of unbeatable deals across all product categories on Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day.
Leading up to Sept 9, Shopee will be featuring a lineup of special themed days, each with promotions including flash sales and up to 99% off various products in line with the focus of the day.
“Shopee has grown tremendously in the past year, and we are quickly becoming the online shopping destination of choice for both shoppers and sellers not just in Malaysia, but across the region. This is the third year that we are running the annual 9.9 shopping event in Malaysia, and it’s set to be our biggest ever.
“Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day was launched to thank all our users; in line with this, we have continued to strengthen our ties with leading brands to provide more exclusive offers, and launched new initiatives to elevate the overall shopping experience,” said Shopee regional managing director Ian Ho during the launch.
Super themed days
Starting on Aug 27, users can immerse themselves in a non-stop 14-day shopping marathon featuring back-to-back themed days every 24 hours. On each day, users can shop for promotions in line with daily themes.
Additionally, Shopee has teamed up with corporate partners such as Citibank, Visa, Hong Leong Bank and BHP to provide further value to customers after they have gone offline.
Users can also check out deals on celebrity products at Shopee Celebrity Squad. Since its launch in May, Shopee Celebrity Squad has been well-received by fans of local stars including Siti Nurhaliza, Nora Danish and Emma Maembong.
On Sept 9, Shopee will be featuring nine rounds of Shocking Sale with up to 99% off the most popular products. Users can also earn vouchers offering discounts on various product categories including Fast-moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), Fashion, Electronics, and Lifestyle.
Shopee Shake with 99 million Shopee coins
Since its debut last year, Shopee Shake Shake has seen over 70 million plays. To fuel the Shopee Shake craze on Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day, Shopee is supersizing the coins pool to 99 million coins throughout the campaign.
Shopee will go ‘kaw kaw’ by opening nine time slots on Sept 9, with two plays per user per slot; so players can shake and win up to 18 times in 24 hours.
Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day will also see the convergence of some of the largest retailers and industry players in the country.
As part of the 9.9 Super Shopping Day launch, Shopee hosted a panel discussion titled Building a Thriving E-commerce Ecosystem through Strategic Partnerships, where leaders from brands such as PayNet, RHB, KLFW, Digi and XES shared their ideas on nurturing the e-commerce ecosystem in Malaysia.
“E-commerce in Malaysia is constantly evolving, and because of robust partnerships within the industry, consumers are enjoying improved payments and logistics, greater product variety, increased convenience and better deals on their favourite products.
“We have packed Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day with a comprehensive suite of deals and promotions tailored to our users and we are confident shoppers will enjoy an unmatched online shopping experience at our largest annual regional shopping event,” Ho concluded.
