The other day, the mil was spring-cleaning the kitchen cabinets as they were bursting with containers. She fished out a stack of cute lunch boxes and water bottles that have been sitting inside the kitchen cabinets for yonks. They were mostly gifts and some were purchased by this shopping queen via impulse buying 😀 She asked me to give those containers away since she has never seen anyone of us using them before. I told her that I will sell them online. Too ‘sayang’ to give them away as they are mostly brand new. So yup, I now have to find some buyers for my stash of cute lunch boxes and water bottles.
Coincidentally, I just found out about this mobile marketplace called Shopee designed for both buyers and sellers to enjoy fast, smooth and safe transactions. All I have to do is to snap pictures of what I want to sell and post it on Shopee, that easy!
I have just installed the Shopee app onto my Samsung android phone. And I can start to sell anything that I want at the touch of a few buttons! Shopee Guarantee ensures that the seller ships only after the buyer has paid, and the buyer’s payment is transferred to the seller only after receiving the product. Shopee aims to create a simple and secure mobile marketplace for everyone to buy and sell, anytime, anywhere.
