A Mobile Marketplace Called SHOPEE.

Many years ago when I was working in Kuala Lumpur, books were very expensive then. I remembered a shop which buys and sells used books and I was on of its regular patrons. We, the patrons used to call it the second hand book shop. Instead of spending lots of money on new books and after reading them to have cluttered up in our rented room, we sell these books back to the shop and from there we buy recycled books and we get to read as many good books at a much cheaper rate.

Lately, we have been hearing a lot about mobile marketplace, the most recent one being Shopee. What is Shopee? Shopee is a mobile marketplace designed for both buyers and sellers to enjoy fast, smooth and safe transactions. With their in-app functions, we can easily turn our clutter into cash.

Shopee is a secure mobile marketplace for everyone to buy and sell, anytime, anywhere without having the concerns of payment.

You can check it out at their official links below:

So, is it safe? Shopee Guarantee ensures that the seller has paid, and the buyer's payment is transferred to the seller only after receiving the product.

Benefits of selling & buying on Shopee vs Instagram.

i) Free for all
Shopee app is free for all smartphone users (Android and iOS) to download and use without any charge.

ii) Privacy matters
With 'Chat' function, conversation is kept within the app and personal between seller and buyer. The seller is not required to expose personal contact details to buyers.

iii) Easy payment
Buyers can make payment for all items via credit card and online banking. Sellers can avoid the hassle of having to cross check all bank transfer/payment. Shopee will ensure all payment is correct.

iv) Shopee at your service.
Shopee customer service is always a call away to provide support for all matters.

v) Expand your horizons
As a seller you will be able to widen your customer base while for buyers, experience great deals.

vi) Social Media
Share your favourite items or your own store with your friends and family.
