Shopee Review

Before we go to what I bought during Shopee’s 12.12 Christmas Sale, let’s review Shopee first. Below are some of the things I love about Shopee.


  • Shopee Website

I love how straight to the point Shopee is. The website and their mobile app are both user-friendly. The combination of the colors used are pleasing to the eyes as well. The branding now is just so strong, thanks to Ann and Jose Marie Chan. Sa Shopee-pee-pee-peeeeeeee!

Below the banners, the buttons you see is to, basically, categorize what Shopee offers. You can get the Free Shipping vouchers here, rebates from the Gadget Zone, get additional coins from the Coin Rewards, and many more!


  • Flash Deals

one thing I love as well are the Flash Deals. Shopee has three windows for the Flash Deals. Basically, these are the items that are being sold with big discounts.


  • Free Shipping

On the homepage, you will see a Free Shipping button. If you click it, it will redirect you to the below page. Shopee is giving Free Shipping here. You just need to click ‘Get Voucher’ and automatically, vouchers will be stored in your account.

Make sure you use it before checking out!


  • Shopee Mall

Shopee Mall is like the premium version of Shopee. As mentioned above, Shopee has two types of sellers, the community sellers and the official shops under the Shopee Mall.

Sellers under the Shopee Mall are the brands itself or the direct and official distributors of the brand so if you’re buying under the Shopee Mall, rest assured that the products are authentic.


If it wasn’t for Shopee, I think I would never get the chance to try online shopping. With its very user-friendly website and mobile app and some research, Shopee got my heart and was addicted to it ever since.
