Shopee Influencers Champion Human-Centric E-commerce in 2024



Shopee Malaysia officially unveiled the ‘Championing Inclusive Commerce 2024’ study of over 3,000 Shopee Affiliates. The study discovered that 9 in 10 Affiliates are feeling positive for their e-commerce opportunities in 2024. These affiliates are excited to humanise e-commerce with increased personalisation, engage with more users on posts and livestreams, and drive more traffic for local sellers aligned with their values.


The Rise of Human-Centric Content

Shopee Affiliates want to have more authentic engagements with their audiences (30%), seek to personalise their content further through product education posts and livestreams (30%), while the remaining want to collaborate with more local businesses to drive awareness (15%). 


“Our affiliates are leading the charge in humanising e-commerce, providing users with original content and ultimately, building a stronger competitive edge for our local brands and sellers. This powerful statement tells us that Malaysian consumers are craving something real. They're tired of the perfectly polished posts on their feeds. They want to connect with real people, with relatable stories, and genuine experiences,” said Kenneth Soh, Head of Marketing at Shopee Malaysia, during the launch of the study today.


Sharing on the importance of authenticity and personalisation, Shopee Affiliate Livestreamer Celeste Phuah believes that developing original content is important when building sincere relationships with their audiences. “As an affiliate livestreamer, I believe it is important to be honest and open with my audience during my product recommendation live sessions. I will share my opinions on the products they are interested in based on my own experiences. When I get questions from the audience, I do try my best to inform them on the various benefits and features about the products,” Celeste said.


Building Communities Through Two-Way Engagement


A resounding 94% of Shopee Affiliates anticipate a surge in user engagement through the power of authentic content and interactive livestreams. This data unveils a crucial shift in audience behaviour, highlighting the growing demand for genuine connections between Shopee buyers and sellers, with affiliates taking on the mantle to digitally bridge this gap.


Andrew Tay in his capacity as the Chief Operating Officer for Val Media, a digital portal that produces influential content, explained that his team is enthusiastic to see more engagements and interactions from their audiences this year. “In the last few years, we have been branching out from just doing product review articles, to creative informative videos and social media postings.

It lights up my heart when I drive traffic and awareness for a local seller selling hand-made or traditional products to my audiences. I can’t wait to collaborate with these sellers in 2024 to create family-friendly content that is aligned with my Muslim culture and values,” said Rita Zafran, Shopee Affiliate (Top Posting Creator).

GoodMorning Global Group launches Malaysia’s first dry mix complete nutrition plantbased meat



Local food tech company, GoodMorning Global Group Holdings Berhad today officially launched the country’s first dry mix complete nutrition plant-based meat (PBM), that the company expects will serve the growing global demand for plant-based food alternatives.

The food product, which comes in powder form and named ‘WonderMeat’, is already making significant achievements, as seen by its induction into the Malaysian Book of Records.

Kluang Member of Parliament Wong Shu Qi, who was the guest of honour at the launch ceremony held at the Renaissance Hotel Kuala Lumpur, commended GoodMorning Global for their excellent achievement in the field of food biotechnology.

She added, “I am confident that Malaysia’s alternative protein products like WonderMeat, will be able to make headways in the global market and compete strongly with the more established brands, while inspiring the further development of sustainable food solutions.”

“We firmly believe that food technology holds unlimited potential, paving the way for a healthier and more fulfilling life. Thus, Wondermeat isn't merely a food product; it's a leap towards a sustainable future,” said GoodMorning Global Group’s executive chairman and founder, Dato’ Dr Lim Sin Boon.

He added, “Our commitment to wellness has led to the creation of a delicious, affordable culinary experience that provides sufficient and balanced nutrition plant-based protein for our daily needs!”



WonderMeat, a plant-based meat is developed to replicate the taste and texture of animal meat, not only giving vegetarians and vegans broader options in food choices, but also a revolution that will fundamentally change the way people perceive meat by transforming the meat industry into a plant-based one, thereby reducing the dependency on animal protein to achieve food security and climate goals.

With streamlined transportation, extended shelf life, reduced cost and carbon footprint, the powdered WonderMeat transform the food industry for sustainability. Offering authentic meat texture, convenience and affordability, it marks a new era in culinary innovation.

Primarily composed of soya and pea, it is rich in dietary fibre and protein. WonderMeat is also fortified with CaHMB, and 28 types of vitamins and minerals ensuring complete nutrition in every serving.

The innovation of WonderMeat follows several earlier achievements. In July, the company secured RM20 million (US$ 4.4 million) from 1,046 investors in an equity crowdfunding campaign to propel the company's biotechnology and food technology research into new frontiers, while earlier in March the company’s plant-based nutrition beverage GSure received approval from the Sultanate of Oman’s Centre for Food Safety and Quality.

 

Malaysian Sellers Prioritise Trusted Shopping Experiences

9 in 10 Protected their Business from Online Scams on Shopee



A new survey of sellers on Shopee has revealed how sellers are prioritising safe shopping for customers. When 500 Malaysian local and independent online sellers were asked "Which is your platform of choice in operating a safe online business for customers?" in September 2023, 90% chose Shopee out of nine possible other marketplaces to operate on. 


“These findings demonstrate the high level of trust that Malaysian sellers have in Shopee's ability to provide a safe and secure platform for their businesses. Our platform offers a variety of innovative features and protections that help to keep customers safe, such as Shopee Guarantee, secure payment options, and Preferred+ and Shopee Mall verification programs. Shopee also works closely with law enforcement agencies to combat fraud and protect its users,” said Kenneth Soh, Head of Marketing at Shopee.


Tangible Impact on Sellers’ Profitabilities


The #ShopSafeWithShopee survey found that nine in ten Malaysian sellers on Shopee have protected their business from any forms of online scams or fraud in the last year. Providing trusted shopping experiences has directly translated into the following tangible benefits:


  • 53% of sellers have protected their brand reputation with stellar ratings, avoiding loss of followers, and reducing customer complaints of their store. 


  • 24% of sellers have saved expenses from any liabilities that could arise from scams such as order cancellations and processing fees.


  • 23% of sellers have sustained the long-term continuity of their operations because they are able to keep clients loyal and minimise or avoid online business disruptions.


These findings highlight the fact that sellers keenly understand that customers want to be confident that they are buying from trusted sellers and that their purchases are protected. By taking steps to ensure safe shopping, sellers know they can build trust with customers and boost their sales.


Prioritising Online Safety Features to Maximise Customer Trust


By design, Shopee strengthens responsible selling among its community of sellers by incentivizing them to ensure high standards of service to buyers. Shopee University’s Seller Education Hub also drives education through free webinars on Malaysia Brand Protection, Return Policies, and Shopee Mall. 


When asked, “When setting up your online business, what features do you prioritise to ensure your customers' safety?” Malaysian sellers who took the survey revealed:


  • 47% of sellers on Shopee have established strong operational safety standards by complying with Shopee’s safe policies and guidelines, providing excellent customer service, and accumulating customer ratings and testimonials of this record.


  • 35% of sellers have gotten verified as Shopee Mall, Preferred+, Preferred seller with the objective of allowing their customers know that they follow a 100% Authenticity Policy, adhere strictly to the 15-day return/refund policy for all buyers, and have no less than 95% of products listed as ready stock.


  • 17% of sellers ensure that their customers know that Shopee offers a variety of secure payment options and return/refund policies, such as Shopee Guarantee, where payments to sellers are temporarily held by Shopee until buyers confirm that orders are fulfilled and satisfactory.


These proactive measures are in line with the expectations Malaysian customers have when seeking safe online experiences. In a similar survey of 1,000 shoppers earlier last month, Shopee found that Malaysians value the opinions of other buyers when making online purchases. They are also likely to choose sellers who have been verified by Shopee or who have a good track record of customer service.
