Shopee Accelerates Adoption of the Updated DTI E-commerce Roadmap for Brands and MSMEs

Published

on

Shopee readily provides the winning formula for brands and small businesses to fast-track their successes in the digital space

The global pandemic has significantly changed the way retailers promote and sell their products. With more Filipinos using digital platforms and transitioning to cashless transactions, businesses need to quickly adapt in order to gain and maintain customer loyalty. 

As the Philippine government recognizes the increasing importance of e-commerce in the country, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) recently updated its e-commerce roadmap and highlighted speed, security, and infrastructure as the three main pillars to drive industry development, long-term employment, and inclusive growth. The updated DTI e-commerce roadmap features the key timelines in 2021 that will contribute to the growth that the industry is currently experiencing, and mentions major players in the Philippine e-commerce architecture. It also outlines the integral role that online platforms like Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, and Shopee’s mobile wallet, ShopeePay, play in encouraging Filipinos to slowly embrace digital transactions. 

Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines, said, “Shopee continues to evolve and grow as a company not only for our consumers but also for our business partners, such as brands and MSMEs. They are integral to our business and we will continue to support them through various initiatives, partnerships, and in-app innovations. As e-commerce continues to grow at an unprecedented pace, we want to equip our partners with the right tools to serve Filipinos with ease.” 

Shopee’s goals and initiatives to support brands and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) on their digital journey are in line with DTI’s e-commerce roadmap strategies. This formula is something Shopee can readily provide to brands and MSMEs, to help them succeed in the digital space. Shopee makes it simpler and easier for brands and MSMEs to adjust to the new DTI e-commerce roadmap with its current ecosystem. With its marketing and logistics tools, mobile features for both sellers and consumers, and digitalization efforts, Shopee gives all its users a smooth online shopping and selling experience. 

Shopee also continues to form partnerships with other organizations to offer initiatives to encourage brands and MSMEs to go digital. These include the recent TatakPinoy Virtual Trade Fair, seller masterclasses that offer training to allow MSMEs to on-board easily on the platform, and the launch of new in-app features within Shopee Live, such as co-streaming. All these opportunities are created to help brands and MSMEs broaden their market audience, and embrace digitalization as a whole. 

Yu adds, “Shopee is encouraged to see DTI moving swiftly to set the direction of growth for the industry, this helps to ensure that everyone stands to benefit from e-commerce in the long run. As a leading player in the industry, we’ll do our part to support DTI’s efforts and support businesses.”

Shopee Donates 1,200 School Chairs to Barangay Punta Baja in Palawan

Published

on

One of the winners of Barangay Shopee got their wish granted with 1,200 school chairs provided to students of Barangay Punta Baja in Rizal, Palawan

As face-to-face classes resume, schools all around the Philippines struggle with a shortage of resources due to the influx of enrollees. In Barangay Punta Baja, Rizal, Palawan, students faced the problem of not having enough chairs, as a lot of them had no choice but to sit on the floor during classes. Sitti Halima Adges, a school teacher at the Jose P. Rizal National High School, dreamt of providing her students with a complete set of school arm chairs to create spaces conducive for learning.

One day, Sitti chanced upon a post on Shopee’s Barangay Shopee initiative– where a barangay could win a community project of their choice. She and her fellow teachers took their chances and joined and thanks to their heartwarming video entry, Sitti’s dream became a reality. Out of 200 entries nationwide, Barangay Punta Baja was chosen as one of Barangay Shopee’s two winners.

On November 11, Shopee went to Rizal, Palawan to visit Sitti and her barangay, and donated more than 1,000 school chairs to the Jose P. Rizal National High School.

 

Sitti Adges submitted the winning video for the Barangay Shopee contest, and her wish was to provide all students of Jose P. Rizal National High School with new school chairs

 

“Kami ay lubos na nagpapasalamat sa tulong at suporta ni Shopee sa Barangay Punta-Baja at Jose P. Rizal National High School. Bilang isang ina at guro, napakasaya ko na may mga mabubuting loob tulad ng Shopee na tumutulong sa pag-aaral ng aming mga estudyante sa barangay namin,” shared Sitti.

Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines, shared “At Shopee, we are committed to serving the underserved and making a difference in communities all over the Philippines. When we launched Barangay Shopee, our goal was to address the direct needs of communities. Sitti’s video entry was one of the many we received, and it reminded us of our commitment to nurture young talent, and the importance of creating environments conducive for learning and growth. We are humbled that we were able to bring smiles to Barangay Punta Baja, and we hope to do the same for many more communities.”

 

Through Barangay Shopee and all initiatives under Shopee Bayanihan, Shopee furthers its objective to bettering the lives of the underserved  by helping communities benefit from the power of technology wherever they are in the Philippines. Learn more about Barangay Shopee here.
