Shopee is the newest marketplace app that lets you buy and sell items easily. The company claims that you can complete transactions in less than 30 seconds. But what’s new about it? Is it just another marketplace? Read on to find out.
One of the reasons why Shopee is a great place to buy and sell is because of its features and protection. Shopee will only release your payment to the seller after you receive the product, which means that you can buy the things you want with peace of mind. In terms of selling, it’s very easy: take a photo of your product, describe it, and post it. If buyers are interested, they can easily order your product or chat with you for further negotiation.
To get started, you first need to sign up with Shopee. You can download the app on both iOS and Android app stores. There’s an option to sign up using your Facebook account, your phone number, or email address. You would need to verify it to be able to create a username and password.
If you’re going to shop, you’re good to go! Just browse through the categories and find the products you like, or dig that search button if you have something specific in mind.
For those who want to sell, here are some of the steps that you would need to do.
- Click the “+” button for Android or the “Sell” button for iOS.
- Choose an existing photo from your gallery or snap a photo using the camera. You can put up to 9 photos per product listing. You can also pull out photos from your Instagram by choosing the import from IG Import feature.
- To finish it up, fill in the product details: stock, price, category and shipping period.b
- Click the “check” button for Android or “Submit” button for iOS.
The Shopee app looks sleek and beautiful in my opinion and isn’t buggy like the OLX app. Every time I use OLX, it shows some kind of server error and/or problems in search. It has a big market, but it is less secure especially for shipping since the transaction is only between the two parties. Meanwhile, Shopee gives utmost protection to both parties by securing their transaction even if they are miles away from each other.
