Shopee to help local sellers boost sales with more collaborative features

Shopee shared initiatives and resources to support local businesses at Seller Summit 2022 


Director of Shopee Malaysia Kavan Sito emphasised that the platform stays committed to helping more people and businesses access the benefits of the digital economy through technology.

Shopee seeks to help local sellers attract more new and returning customers on the platform with new and more collaborative seller marketing tools.

According to Kavan Sito, Director of Shopee Malaysia, starting Q3 this year, all sellers can expect to expand their reach through over 13,000 Shopee affiliate partners to gain a wider audience and boost sales via Shopee Affiliate Marketing Solution (AMS).

The affiliate partners include social media influencers, coupon and cashback platforms, price comparison platforms and content publishers.

Selected sellers who participated in AMS between October and December last year achieved up to 16 times return on their advertisement investment.

Speaking at the Shopee Seller Summit on 16 June, Sitosaid that reviews are essential to help create trust and appeal for a product online. As such, Shopee will also be enabling sellers to reward users for leaving useful product reviews.

Apart from that, the platform will also be enhancing its voucher features that will enable sellers to incentivise new buyers as well as reward repeat buyers for their loyalty.

“These are among many innovative seller marketing features that Shopee will be launching in the coming months to help sellers drive long-term business growth,” Sito said.

The Shopee Seller Summit-themed “Level Up: Driving Growth Together” was held at Sunway Resort, PetalingJaya, attracting 500 physical and close to 2000 virtual participants.

Sito said, “Shopee remains committed to upskilling and empowering local businesses. Apart from free training modules provided through Shopee University, Shopee is glad to be the trusted partner of government agencies to support local communities and drive training initiatives that help to upskill local businesses. This includes supporting sellers of all types, even some 5,000 university student entrepreneurs kickstarted their online selling journey through the Siswa Mall initiatives in collaboration with the Ministry of Higher Education.”

Shopee Seller Summit is also part of the #ShopeeSapotLokal initiative that aims to drive inclusiveness and create more opportunities for local communities.

An avid user of Shopee's programmes such as Facebook Collaborative Ads (CPAS) and Seller Affiliate Programme, 46 years old Kelvin Yam, who runs a stationery store - CX Trading on the platform said that the programmes had not only incentivised him to market his Shopee products on Facebook but also helped increased his average monthly sales by more than double.

“These programmes were very helpful for me to scale my Shopee business as I saw an almost 5X increase in sales. I am now generating an average monthly sales of about RM50,000,” Yam said.

Another seller, Ammar Izzuddin, 33 believes that beyond learning, one also needs to network and learn from other sellers to gain further experience in selling.

Ammar who sells baby products on Shopee said, “Through the networking opportunities at the Shopee Seller Summit, I gained insights on how other sellers strategise and forecast business opportunities, as well as manage their resources. These are all very insightful to help us understand how we can do better and scale in the long run.”

Ammar has been a loyal participant of Shopee Seller Summit for four consecutive years.

Sellers looking to impart their skills and knowledge can look forward to the ShopeeXperts programme applications in early August this year. Through this programme, selected top-performing sellers will be given an insightful 1-month training in marketing, operations, sales and presentation skills. This is a chance to establish credibility as qualified trainers and be able to help other sellers to drive growth for their businesses.

Marrybrown App Offering More Savings and Amazing Deals!

In case you havent heard about the latest news, Marrybrown has recently laucnhed their new app which can be downloaded for FREE from this link right here. Being a huge Marrybrown fan myself, i decided to download the app and to my discovery, i found myself exploring amazing deals! Previously i've been seeing a lot of people sharing about the MB App having this Raya deals, but if you think you missed out on it, their deals are actually still ongoing! 



If you're wondering what to expect,  you can get up to 40% off deals and to enjoy it, you have to be sure to redeem it while the quota is still there. Just to share with you on what the deals you can look forward to, i've included some screenshots for you to check out and to get yourself tempted to see how amazing these deals are! Personally, I'm surprised that there's a lot of savings and it can be instantly redeemed without any requirements! 


I went to the outlet at Citta Mall and all I did was walk into the store, showed the deal from the app that i wanted at the counter, and they scanned my phone to redeem the deal, and that's it! I got my savings just by using that deal in my order. Saving money has been more effortless all thanks to the app. My daughter wanted their chicken nuggets and its usually priced at RM8.49, but i got it at only RM5.90 with the App. Sadly, only one deal can be redeemed at a time, so if youre smart, you can get your partner to line up again to redeem another deal (shhhh.) hehe. 

I think the best deal would be that for every new user of the Marrybrown app, there's a welcome gift where you can redeem 1 pc of MB Crispy Chicken for Free! All you need to do is order a drink and basically its like a buy 1 free 1 deal for you to not miss out on. Talk about eating smart when youre out am i right? Gotta say that the best meals are usually the ones that are free. There's just something about it that makes it taste better. 

So, what are you waiting for? Be sure to download the app to not miss out on any amazing deals each time to visit Marrybrown! On top of that, you will be collecting.

The Samsung Galaxy A33 User Experience | Foodie Content Creator

As a writer and a content creator, I would have to say that staying connected is key when it comes to my overall lifestyle. One of the gadgets that I cannot live without would be two things, one a mobile phone, and the other being my laptop. With these two devices that goes hand in hand for the past few years of my life, I can confidently say that I can live without them! But of course, when it comes to keeping up with the latest features and technology, an upgrade is always a must. And this time around, I'll be sharing with you a perspective of what it's like to be using the Samsung Galaxy A33 in my daily life as a content creator. 

I went to get myself the Samsung Galaxy A33 in white because I find white to be an everlasting classic color that would suit practically anything that I wear. It's also a very chic shade considering that it's full-on white even up to the lens of the camera making it look very modern in appearance. You might wonder why I got the Galaxy A33? Well, for starters, the reason why I went for this model because the specs of the camera suit the needs of my digital era lifestyle offering up to 48MP quality photos, plus the 5G specs that offer the speed that I need when I'm living in the city! Other than that, it has been designed to offer a two-day battery life, making it great for long usage when I'm out and about trying to explore and share about the everyday life as a blogger and for the purpose to create memories to be recorded in social media. 

 Sleek Body & Appearance

Starting with the appearance of the camera, I got to admit that the design of the Galaxy A33 is very stylish, slim, and sleek which reflects the era that we live in today. If I would have to describe the phone in 2 words, I'd say it's minimalist and techy! It's pretty, durable, and offers functions that would suit any person who is all about detail. The glass of the mobile uses the Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which makes it very durable and it also has IP676 water and dust resistance feature to ensure that it still looks good after any unexpected accidents. Being excited about everything that surrounds me, this mobile gives me the assurance that it will withstand even the toughest scenarios! 

Camera Features and Clarity

Offering quad camera's in one lightweight device, I would say that this is an accomplishment of its own! I used to bring around my bulky camera with its interchangeable lenses to take different angles of photos, but with the Samsung Galaxy A33, all I need is to slide it into the back of my pocket and I'll be ready for any unexpected moments! The mobile offers a main camera of 48MP, a depth camera of 2MP, an Ultra Wide of 8MP, and a Macro Camera of 5MP with a front camera of 13MP. Overall, I think the main usages of the device would typically be the main camera which offers a huge clarity, and the front camera for any sudden video meetings to catch up with.

Honestly, it offers pretty good specs to suit today's digital era, where we revolve a lot around e-sports and mainstream social media because the features of the mobile complement the camera. Not many cameras offer good quality images when it's low in lighting, but this Galaxy A33 is ready for breathtaking sunset pictures! Since it offers an innovative AI-powered camera, the processor can improve night shots which synthesizes up to 12 images all at once. It even brightens up videos in low lighting while giving less noise quality to ensure that it performs at its best possible. I tried and tested this at night, and wow I am impressed!

Audio Accessories and Usage Speed

In terms of audio accessories that would be unique to the latest Galaxy A series would be that its designed to seamlessly work with other Galaxy devices. I was a little unsure about this feature at first, but then when I did a little more digging on this, I was surprised to find that with the Galaxy Buds Series, you can connect the buds with more than 1 pair of buds, which means that if you're listening to music or streaming through your mobile, you can stream together with a friend and use your device as a screen. To me, this feature is really handy when I want to get a little cuddly with my husband while the kids conquer the TV at home. On top of that, there's also this feature where you can link to windows 11 and connect the Galaxy A series to a windows PC to work effortlessly. I'd say that's pretty impressive.


On top of that, if you're a gamer, I would have to say that the Samsung Galaxy A33 is sufficient in ensuring that your gaming experience is a smooth one. With 2 days battery life and 90Hz Super AMOLED speed, it would give you a silky smooth experience. On top of this feature, I would have to say I enjoyed editing videos on the go considering it was very smooth to edit any films. Skip the hassle of transferring videos and photos into your desktop and do it while you're having lunch. 

The Final Verdict

Portrait mode which offers harp clear images

As a verdict, I would say that I'm beyond impressed with the Samsung Galaxy A33. Being priced at RM1,499 only, it's a definite value for money to match the specifications and features of the device. If you're looking for a mobile within a certain budget, I would say that this mobile is decent for daily usage, even for a content creator! Offering a sufficient high megapixel camera quality that also takes portrait shots, plus the low light AI adjustments, it makes taking photos and being creative enjoyable.

Considering this is one of the latest Galaxy A series, I can't deny that it's well crafted. A pretty good investment if you're looking to create content be it for youtube, Instagram, or simply just for a gaming experience to enjoy. Will continue using this mobile to explore and I'll be updating some content with what this mobile can do! Be sure to follow my social media accounts to keep yourself updated, or if you do have any questions in mind, feel free to leave a comment below and I'll get back to you soonest.
