MANILA, OCTOBER 8, 2021 - Consumer behavior continues to evolve as more people shop online and embrace digital payment methods. In Southeast Asia, there is a 70% year-on-year increase in shoppers who prefer e-wallets as a mode of payment; and in the Philippines, there is 133 percent growth in consumers who opt to use e-wallets - a contributing factor on why brands and retailers continue to ramp up efforts to offer safe, rewarding, and convenient digital payment options. ShopeePay, Shopee’s all-in-one mobile wallet, recorded a 57X uplift in the number of ShopeePay partner merchants last 9.9 Super Shopping Day compared to the 4.4 Mega Shopping Sale. Among the growing list of ShopeePay partner merchants, Gong cha, National Book Store, and Moonleaf share how ShopeePay helps drive their brand’s growth through enhanced promotional strategies.
For National Book Store, customers enjoy a safe and seamless experience with Shopeepay through its scan-to-pay features and exclusive promos. Xandra Ramos-Padilla, Managing Director at National Book Store, said, “ShopeePay has empowered our Laking National customers with a new way of shopping for books and supplies in our branches nationwide, and helped strengthen our omnichannel strategy as we adapt to challenges brought about by the pandemic.” Customers have responded positively to the availability of ShopeePay as a payment option at National Book Store outlets resulting in an uplift of transactions which more than tripled versus the previous quarter.
Gong cha also shares how partnering with ShopeePay allows them to showcase their products and reach a broader audience through regular participation in ShopeePay promos and campaigns. Gong cha Philippines, Inc., said, “ShopeePay enhanced Gong cha's publicity in digital marketing. Every month is most awaited because of the monthly sales and surprise deals; it's our way to give our customers more of the best milk tea experience from Taiwan to the world!” Through the acceptance of ShopeePay QR payments in their stores, Gong cha was able to grow their daily transactions via ShopeePay by 33X since launch.
Moonleaf also saw a 50x uplift in customers who use ShopeePay since the partnership was launched due to the exclusive discounts and promos they are able to offer. Mike Magallanes, Creative Director at Moonleaf, said, “ShopeePay has helped Moonleaf grow and establish its place in the digital market. We cannot wait for another exciting and fuss-free sale campaign, so we can also give our customers a double dose of good vibes in a cup.”
