Highlights of Shopee 4.4 Mega Shopping Day in the Philippines
In the Philippines, 4.4 Mega Shopping Day delivered unbeatable deals from a wide range of brands and sellers. At the Midnight Mega Sale held from 12am to 2am, Shopee saw 6 times more items sold compared to an average day.
Home & Living, Beauty & Personal Care, and Mobile Accessories emerged as the top-selling categories. Hygiene essentials and personal care items remained a top priority for shoppers. Storage boxes and 3D wallpapers became best-selling items, since shoppers bought more home decor and organizers for spring cleaning and refurbishing as they spent more time at home. Tech accessories also saw strong demand as Filipinos continued to work from home. Phone stands and headsets were especially popular as Filipinos focused on connecting better with their colleagues and refining their work-from-home set-up.
Yu closed, “We are happy that Shopee has evolved as users’ go-to shopping platform for essentials. We will continue to cater to their evolving needs, while driving growth for sellers and brands during this time.”
