MANILA, 12 SEPTEMBER 2022 - The leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan continues to create memorable shopping experiences at 9.9 Super Shopping Day. Boosted by increased shopper traffic and support from Shopee's platform tools, top local sellers sold 6 times more items on 9 September than on an average day. These seller offerings in turn created more value for customers, who snapped up the best promotions and mas mura prices on items ranging from their daily essentials to the latest gadgets.
Shopee’s 9.9 Super Shopping Day brings more benefits to Filipinos by providing buyers with convenient shopping experiences at the best deals, while helping sellers grow their businesses. Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines shared, “We are committed to benefit online shoppers, by bringing them more joy, value, and excitement every 9.9. This drives us to use our platform to deliver the best value for money with our Mas Mura sa Shopee* offers, and to explore other equally fulfilling possibilities that serve the evolving needs of customers and businesses alike, especially as we gear towards another meaningful year-end shopping season.”
Shoppers secured daily essentials at better deals
Shopee worked with sellers to curate a wide assortment of ₱1 and ₱49 deals, helping users get their money’s worth when they shopped their everyday essentials in Home & Living, Health & Personal Care, and Women's Apparel during 9.9. Filipinos were keen to maximize the available deals in acquiring their daily necessities, with one shopper saving as much as ₱200,000 for essential back-to-school items like a new laptop, laptop accessories, and desk accessories.

Meanwhile, leading brands Uni-Care, Unilever Beauty, and Maybelline also saw a boost in orders as shoppers looked to Shopee for their go-to branded parenting essentials, personal care products, and beauty must-haves.
