ASUS Philippines today expands its e-commerce reach by partnering with Shopee, one of the largest online selling platform in Southeast Asia and in Taiwan. The company will be opening two additional online concept stores under ASUS and Republic of Gamers (ROG) which aim to attract new and hybrid power-users in the country.
The newly opened online stores in Shopee will serve as ASUS’ gateway to its fans and other end-users all over the country looking to purchase its whole product range—from smartphones, notebooks, gaming laptops, and other devices—conveniently through a hassle-free online shopping experience. The ASUS and ZenFone Store will be carrying the complete smartphone and mobile PC lineup of the company, including soon-to-be launched smartphones, as well as premium and stylish notebooks, ultrabooks, 2-in-1s, convertibles, and all-in-one PCs.
“Understanding our consumers both on-ground and online remains to be a primary priority for us in ASUS. Expanding our visibility in the e-commerce space allows us to connect to more people, helping us reach consumers that otherwise might not be able to experience our existing concept stores,” shares George Su, ASUS Philippines Country Manager for Systems Group.
“Our partnership with ASUS reflects Shopee’s commitment to onboarding leading brands onto our platform in order to continuously improve our product assortment and cater to a wider demographic of users. We are excited to kickstart our partnership with ASUS with the launch of two Official Stores on Shopee to allow around 12 million users across the Philippines easy access to the full range of ASUS products on our platform. We look forward to strengthening our partnership with ASUS to bring users even more exciting deals and exclusive offers from the brand,” shares Jane Lim, Director of Shopee Philippines.
“Opening new online concept stores is our way to make our products easily accessible for our fans and all Filipinos who want premium yet value-for-money devices. There is no doubt that Shopee is an innovative online platform that can open new business opportunities for us,” Su added.
