Shopee smashes its own records for 9.9 Super Shopping Day

Southeast Asian/Taiwanese e-commerce platform Shopee has concluded its most successful 9.9 Super Shopping Day yet.

Shopee says it achieved its best-ever September 9 performance in the region, highlighted by three times the number of orders compared to last year; a peak sales volume of 187,606 items within one minute, and more than 113 million deals offered.

Shopee’s in-app features attracted users throughout the entire 9.9 Super Shopping Day period. Users had tuned in to Shopee Live daily to check an upsized live streaming calendar, which garnered 50 million views in total. In addition, Shopee’s collection of in-app games, including Shopee Shake and Shopee Quiz, were played millions of times.
