In the Philippines, the onset of the month of September signals the unofficial start of the holiday season and e-commerce platform Shopee is launching its signature 9.9 Super Shopping Day to mark the stretch to the last quarter of the year. Shopee started the first 9.9 Super Shopping Day in 2016.
A survey conducted by Shopee revealed that over 90% of users across the region proactively seek out information to make better purchase decisions during the campaigns. The mega shopping season also tends to attract new online shoppers, with 43% of shoppers making their first-ever online purchase during the year-end campaigns.
From now until Sept. 9, Shopee has lined up deals and activities for different types of shoppers. Consumers can expect to win exciting rewards from their favorite games on Shopee Prizes.
“As communities continue to live, work, shop, and play from home, we have stepped up our efforts to ensure users have access to their daily essentials through our shopping campaigns,” said Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines. “We are also committed to supporting local MSMEs and launched a series of support initiatives as well as Support Local campaigns to generate greater visibility and enable users to easily identify and support local businesses. We look forward to bringing some joy to our local communities during this year-end season.”
On this 9.9 Super Shopping Day, Shopee will be offering free shipping with no minimum spend, 20% cashback, and daily P1 Deals.
Following the inaugural 4.4 Mega Shopping Day, Shopee brings back the two-hour Midnight Mega Sale. Shoppers can grab deals on thousands of products, including those from Shopee Mall, from midnight to 2 a.m. on Sept. 9. Shoppers can look forward to earning rewards from their favorite games on Shopee Prizes.
A key highlight this year will be Shopee Collectibles, where users stand a chance to win super-sized prizes by collecting a full set of in-game items. Users can collect items by playing popular games such as Shopee Farm and Shopee Candy, or trading items with their friends.
Big giveaways and performances during the 9.9 Super Shopping Day TV Special. Viewers can tune in to GMA 7 and Shopee Live on Sept. 9 for a chance to win millions worth of cash prizes and giveaways, including two house and lot packages.
Shopee also tapped Hollywood actor and celebrity Jackie Chan as the newest brand ambassador for the 9.9 Super Shopping Day campaign. He will be featured in a range of activities across Shopee’s end-of-year shopping festivals.
