How many of you have old items in your closets that you haven’t used in a year (or more)? Let us raise our hands together, because I am super guilty of this! More so whenever I remember Tyra Banks’ line that if you haven’t worn or used something in a year, it should go to the dump. But of course, as a typical Filipina, I always think to myself that sayang naman if I throw it away—so it ends up sitting in my closet and taking up space. I’ve always considered selling them, but I never really got around to doing it.
I’m not the type of person to sell second-hand things on Facebook or Instagram, because for some reason, I feel like selling it on my social media accounts lessens the value of the item. The feeling is different when you sell it through an online platform like Shopee, which is bringing mobile shopping revolution to the Philippines!
Shopee is a safe and easy-to-use mobile marketplace where users can buy and sell online at no extra cost. You can sell pre-loved or brand new items in a snap—all you have to do is sign up and create an account, take a photo of the product, upload it, then set the price and shipping fee! For those who sell products on Instagram, you can even import your photos to Shopee!
Shopee connects thousands of buyers and sellers to each other. For me, one of my main concerns as an online shopper is if the seller doesn’t respond right away or if the items he/she is selling isn’t authentic or in good condition. But Shopee has this thing called the Shopee Guarantee that protects both parties from scams and fake transactions—buyers are assured they receive their ordered items in good condition while sellers are assured to receive payments due to them. With their Shop With A Chat feature, Shopee’s live chat, you can even get the most sulit deals.
The best part about Shopee is that it’s free! No need to pay to sign up. In my case, I just have to set up my account (which takes less than a minute) and start selling pre-loved items. Shopee works for both iOS and Android, too. I just had to switch my iTunes settings to the Philippine region in order to download the app.
