ONLINE shopping platform Shopee is bullish about its Chinese New Year (CNY) sale campaign this year.
For the celebration, the company is offering a wide array of new products, RM18 free shipping, a suite of new services as well as new games and entertainment.
The company has been recording an encouraging performance in 2019 where in the third quater of last year, its year-on-year gross merchandise value rose by 69.9 percent, from US$US2.7 billion to US$US4.6 billion and gross orders surged by 102.8 percent, from 158.5 million to 321.4 million.
“We recorded stellar performance on all fronts of our business throughout the year, with robust shopping activities during the second half of the year. This was supported by major shopping festivals such as 9.9, 11.11 and 12.12. Our volumes have been steadily increasing campaign to campaign. Hence, the appointment of Ninja Van was imperative in order for us to ensure that our users are able to get their parcels on time,” said Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director of Shopee.
Commenting on the industry’s landscape, Ho added that there is a lot more potential for the e-commerce industry in Malaysia to grow. “Seeing as e-commerce contribution to total retail is still below 3 percent, and very much at its infancy, there is a lot more work to be done. We remain committed to this market and expect 2020 to be another exciting year as we unlock more opportunities and identify solid partnerships that would be beneficial to retailers, consumers and the economy,” he said.
For this CNY, among the promotions it offers include the RM8 prosperity deals on CNY Hampers, 24-can Coca-Cola, Tefal Cookware set, Cheongsam, Khind stand fans and more. Premium gold bars are also up for grabs at RM1.
Besides that, there are also offline deals from F&B to services, hotels and theme parks via the Reloads, Vouchers and Bills feature on the App.
As many will be travelling, getting the vehicle serviced is a must, and the company is offering basic servicing options from changing tyres to a full car maintenance as well as discount on child car seats.
Users in Peninsular Malaysia are in for an even bigger treat as they can get all these items shipped to them, free of charge, from now until Jan 21, 2020.
Shopee expects an influx of orders this CNY, especially for bulky items like dining sets, wardrobes, beds and sofas. As these items tend to be heavy, the appointment of third-party logistics partner, Ninja Van, is timely as they can handle shipments of up to 90kgs.
For those who want to learn about their fortune, family, home, career, love and health can catch Fengshui Master Jane Hor on Shopee Live at 12.30pm on weekdays from now until Jan 17. Despite being in seven markets across Southeast Asia and Taiwan, Shopee is seeing a growing popularity across the globe. It was the 5th most downloaded App worldwide in the shopping category, according to AppAnnie.
