Shopee, a Singapore-based e-commerce platform, is playing a bigger part in providing an alternative livelihood for Filipinos through live selling in the e-commerce industry, which is seen to grow in the Philippines by 17 percent through 2025, according to GlobalData.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, many people have turned to live selling as a source of additional income or full-time job. In Shopee Live Seller Awards 2023, the most hardworking live sellers shared their stories of reaping the benefits of working in e-commerce.

The awardees were picked based on their performance in driving orders, consistent live streaming, and taking part in Shopee campaigns, among others. Categories included Shopee Live Superstar, Rising Star Award, Shopee Live Spotlight Awardee, Campaign Streamer Awardee, Everyday Streamer Awardee and the Top 100 sellers.

Cecille was the most formidable player as she was named Top 1 Shopee Live Seller, Shopee Live Superstar Awardee, Campaign Awardee, and Spotlight Awardee. In just three years, she has received 30 orders to over 300 orders per day.

“It is a great honor to be the Top 1 Seller at the Shopee Live Seller Awards. With support from my customers and Shopee, I am confident that there will be even more we can achieve at Cilebritee_shop in the coming year.”

For Ian, who was named the Everyday Streamer Awardee, his customers have grown to 500,000 since he started selling jackets, sweaters, and other outerwear at vheryniceshop last year.

“I’m incredibly grateful that my daily efforts to livestream have been recognized at the Shopee Live Seller Awards. I hope my journey on Shopee can inspire other aspiring sellers to venture into live selling.”

Jeff has spotted the opportunities in live selling. He has been taking most of its advantages as the recipient of the Shopee Live Superstar Award and the Shopee Live Spotlight Award. Jeff gains 170 orders per day on average through selling bags, wallets, and other leather items.

As the government improves internet connection and reach, more Filipinos are expected to spend on online shopping. In 2021 alone, e-commerce expenditure in the Philippines reached over $16 billion, according to consumer data provider Statista. The top items were electronics, furniture, personal and household care, fashion and food.
