SHOPEE Mid-Year sale, running from June 6 to July 7 (6.6, 7.7. Shopee has a penchant for repeating dates) will see users enjoying free shipping, daily ₱1 deals, and up to 20% cashback from certain brands.

“Shopee welcomes the second half of the year with a bang as we launch the Shopee 6.6-7.7 Mid-Year Sale,” said Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines, during a press conference last week. “We’re proud of all the milestones we’ve achieved in the first half of the year, and starting with this campaign, we look forward to reaching new ones. With our supersized 6.6-7.7 Mid-Year Sale and TV Special, Shopee aims to spread joy to Filipinos, cater to their needs, and remain a valued partner to our brands and sellers.”

Mr. Yu made a case for brands to jump onto the platform. According to him, “Shopee saw its top-selling brands achieve up to thirty-fold uplift in orders,” he said. Meanwhile, at the last Mega Shopping Sale (3.3-4.4), Mr. Yu reported a six-fold increase in “items sold across the region.”

Mr. Yu also announced the regular payday sales at Shopee (every 15th day of the month, following the payday calendars of many companies). “We want Filipinos to look forward to payday shopping with the same anticipation and excitement as our monthly mega sales,” he said during the press conference.

Shoppers can look forward to discounts up to 90% on brands such as P&G Beauty, Olay, NIVEA Philippines, Abbott Philippines, Equal Philippines, Maybelline, Del Monte, Mentos and Chupa Chups, Colgate-Palmolive, Havaianas Philippines, Unilever Beauty, OPPO, vivo, Enfagrow, GSK, Deerma Official Store, Colourette, Revlon, The SM Store, Nestle, and Xiaomi.

A TV special hosted by Shopee Ambassador Willie Revillame, aired yesterday on June 6, was broadcasted live from Araneta Coliseum, and gave away P1 million and a house and lot; among many other prizes. — JLG
