What is Shopee Online?

Shopee is an Asian platform for online shopping and selling products. Sellers can sell the products at a cheaper price than the market price and, depending on some criteria, even apply considerable discounts and free shipping coupons. Thus, both the merchant and the customer can benefit and end up gaining on transaction prices.

Is shopee safe?

It is always important to know if the online store you are shopping at is safe, as “not being safe” can cause a lot of problems for you. Shopee is very concerned about the safety of its customers, both the buyer and the seller. Thus, it provides the “Shopee Guarantee” so that its buyers feel more secure when making a purchase.



This guarantee consists of leaving the amount paid on the product withheld until the customer who purchased it informs that the order has been received and is in good condition. Only after confirmation takes place will the seller/store be able to receive the value of the product.

But we need to point out that Shopee is a Marketplace, that is, products can be sold all over the world, both inside and outside our country. Purchases made at national online stores are expected to be delivered first, so be aware of which store/vendor you are shopping from. In addition, purchases made by stores abroad may have import fees, which can make the amount paid much more expensive.
