Shopee Recognizes Top Sellers For Operational and Marketing Excellence


MANILA, PHILIPPINES, JANUARY 20, 2022 - As the e-commerce industry rapidly grows, so do the avenues and opportunities for digital MSMEs to stand out. With this need to adapt quickly, Shopee recently held its Shopee Seller Operations Excellence Awards to recognize sellers who performed exceptionally during Shopee’s mega sales and campaigns in the final quarter of last year.

With three categories based on what helped paved the way for their success, these sellers maximized the tools and tailor-fit platform features Shopee provides in order to emerge as among  the fastest-growing sellers in the platform:

  • Campaign Ready Award: Sellers who have the best campaign preparation performance

  • Top Campaign Day Performer Award: Sellers who have the best order fulfillment performance during a campaign day

  • All-Around Award: Sellers who have the best overall performance during campaign season, from preparations to fulfillment of orders.

Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines, said, “Growing in e-commerce is a journey, and we are glad to support our sellers every step of the way. Shopee is pleased to recognize and celebrate these sellers who are exemplary in using Shopee-provided tools and opportunities to grow their business. We believe that they will be an inspiration to many other Filipino entrepreneurs who are already Shopee sellers or soon to embark on their digital journey with us.”

Shopee’s monthly campaigns and initiatives have helped to boost sellers’ sales and growth on the platform. During its 11.11 Big Christmas Sale, local sellers benefited from the spike in shopping activity, as those joining 11.11 for the first time saw their orders surge 18 times compared to an average day. For its 12.12 Big Christmas Sale, sellers in non-metro cities benefited from the increased visibility at seeing a 12-time uplift in orders compared to an average day. 

Shopee also enables its sellers to thrive through dedicated mentoring, free training sessions, as well as exclusive online courses in Shopee’s Seller Education Hub. These efforts to make e-commerce accessible for all include helping sellers maximize the benefits of digital payment options via its integrated mobile wallet, ShopeePay. Through ShopeePay, sellers can have easier access to their earnings via the Seller Balance feature, allowing for better tracking of their shop’s revenue. Sellers can also directly cash in their ShopeePay wallets with their Seller Balance, so they can enjoy the many features of ShopeePay such as buying load, paying bills, and sending money. 

As e-commerce becomes a more integral part of the everyday lives of Filipinos, Shopee invites current and aspiring entrepreneurs to explore the evolving digital space by Getting Started on Shopee!

TECNO, a premium smartphone brand focused on emerging markets, is working with BBC Storyworks, BBC Studios’ in-house commercial content studio, who have created a short film The Future Lens: Looking Ahead With TECNO to explore the meaning of mobile camera innovation.

The video showcases TECNO’s inclusive mobile camera technology for each user through its unique ‘glocalization’ strategy, detailed the work that has been done to better reflect different communities.

In the piece, TECNO explains how they spotted and solved gaps between fast-developing mobile camera technologies and consumers’ actual needs in various situations so as to best meet the unique needs of local users, environments, and cultures.  

For example, to optimise portrait imaging quality, TECNO has built an enormous database that covers seven skin types and 76 skin categories at its TAVIOS Laboratory. So everyone, regardless of how they look, gets to enjoy cameras that know how to make them look their best. In the photo-taking process, TECNO’s progressive algorithms will automatically gather information from users’ environments, recognizing various opportunities for image enhancement. 

Li Jiangtao, Senior Director of TECNO Imaging Product and Head of TAIVOS™ Lab said: “ It’s a great experience for us to work with BBC Storyworks, to share our insights and to tell the story behind our mobile camera development. The short film explores the meaning behind ‘Future Lens’, TECNO’s key concept on mobile camera innovation - to provide more inclusive technology for everyone, creating a world with more understanding without limits .”

Richard Pattinson, SVP BBC StoryWorks said: “We are delighted to be working with TECNO on this piece. TECNO secured our content production team superb access for interviews, including photographer Justin Amoafo, the frontline staff at TECNO mobile camera department as well as allowing us to visit the TECNO mobile phone manufacturing sites and camera labs. This allowed us to build a complete picture for the audience of what TECNO do and how they do it, as well as their goals for a more inclusive future.”

Boost Your Immune System with Easy and Healthy Dishes from La Germania

Boost Immune System

The new year marks a fresh start, but it also means that flu season is upon us. That’s why it’s vital for you and your loved ones to take care of your health. One of the best ways to shield ourselves from diseases and possible health risks is preparing nutritious dishes at home. 

To help you boost your immune system amid flu season, La Germania shares three recipes that are easy to make and rich with health benefits. By preparing these dishes at home, you also get to make a lot of savings. Hence, you hit two birds with one stone.

Get fancy with Salmon en Papillote

French cuisine may sound intimidating, but this tender fish is deceptively easy and fast to prepare. Salmon is one of the most nutritious foods in the market, rich in omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins. Omega-3 fatty acids help build and maintain a healthy body, while B vitamins are a good energy source and may help with certain health problems, like migraines and anxiety. Baking this flavourful French dish will be a total breeze with your La Germania oven range. 


  • 1.5 lbs salmon, cut into four pieces

  • One small zucchini, thinly sliced

  • One head fennel, thinly sliced

  • One lemon, thinly sliced

  • 1 tsp dried dill

  • 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp pepper 

  • Parchment paper


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

  2. Cut parchment into four large ovals 15” by 10” inches. Then, fold each parchment in half.

  3. On half of each parchment, layer on ¼ of the zucchini, ¼ the fennel, one piece of salmon, sprinkle with ¼ tsp salt, ¼ pepper, ¼ tsp dill, lemon slices, drizzle each salmon with one teaspoon olive oil and a few pieces of fennel fronds. Repeat this process with the three remaining salmon filets.

  4. Close the parchment by folding the other half over the prepared salmon and carefully roll the open edges toward the center.

  5. Set pouches on a baking sheet and bake on the center rack for 15 minutes.

  6. Open carefully using a fork and serve.

Snack it up with Baked Garlic Sweet Potatoes 

If you’re in the mood for a delicious snack, you can forgo junk food and try this affordable yet delectable option instead. Sweet potato (a.k.a kamote) is a superfood packed with plenty of nutrients like Potassium, beta-carotene and Vitamin C. Potassium regulates one’s heartbeat. In contrast, beta-carotene is good for one’s eyesight. Meanwhile, Vitamin C is necessary for the growth, development, and repair of all body tissues. That’s why you should eat more sweet potatoes this flu season. With a La Germania compact oven in your arsenal, you can bake this mouthwatering dish to your heart’s content.


  • Four medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch matchsticks

  • Two tablespoons olive oil

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • Five cloves garlic, pressed

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • Two tablespoons chopped parsley leaves for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.

  2. Place the sweet potatoes in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Add olive oil and gently toss to combine; season with salt and pepper to taste. Place into oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until golden and crisp, tossing occasionally.

  3. Combine sweet potato with garlic and Parmesan cheese. 

  4. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
