Shopee hits US$5billion GMV in second year

Fast-growing e-commerce platform Shopee has released impressive statistics in marking just its second birthday.

Combined annualised GMV from Taiwan and the six Southeast Asian markets where it operates has reached US$5 billion. It has more than 180 million active listings by more than 4 millions sellers, including 5000 leading brands and distributors. Its app has been downloaded more than 80 million time.

In Singapore alone, where it has its own mall portal, the app has had more than 1 million downloads and features more than 70,000 sellers and brands.

“Shopee has undergone tremendous transformation since we first launched, and while we are proud of all that we have achieved, this is only the beginning,” said Zhou Junjie, chief commercial officer of Shopee.

“Shopee has always been committed to listening to the needs and preferences of our users, and has worked to create a platform that is tailored to exactly that. Whether it is providing a fuss-free and convenient shopping experience for buyers, or offering a reliable and secure platform for brands and budding entrepreneurs to expand their online presence, Shopee strives to continue improving the lives of the region’s consumers and businesses with technology,” said Zhou.

“This year has been a great one for Shopee and we would like to thank our customers, sellers, and partners for their continuous support. Moving forward, we will continue to focus on improving our platform and diversifying our product assortment. We remain committed to helping brands and local entrepreneurs grow and continuously strive to push the boundaries of e-commerce to become the leading online shopping destination of choice in the region.”

As part of its birthday celebration, Shopee Singapore will be holding a 10-day birthday sale until December 13, featuring promotions across over 10,000 items.
