Calibrating Your Shopee Ads

In Shopee Ads, sellers can set a budget, timeline, review and modify advertisements, regardless what ad types will be used.

Placing an ad on Shopee is done through bidding. For Singapore-based merchants, lowest rates start at SGD 0.02 per click.

These are paid through sellers’ Paid Ad Credits, which can be topped up in various ways. Shopee also allows you to Auto-Top Up your Paid Ad Credits by linking your Shopee Sellers Wallet.

Types of Shopee Ads

There are three types of Shopee Ads. Let us walk you through each one of them.

1. Product Search Ads

If you want to promote products only on Shopee, then Product Search Ads can be your solution. This type of advertisement mechanism in Shopee is similar to Search Engine Marketing (SEM) among websites as it purely utilises keywords.  

Through Product Search Ads, information and images of what you are selling can be placed at the top spots of Shopee’s search results page. All you have to do is submit the keyword you think is relevant to your product before launching your ad. 

2. Shop Search Ads

Another type of Shopee’s paid ad is called Shop Search Ads. Its purpose is akin to Product Search Ads, but instead of products, your shop will be featured on the search results page once the seller types the keyword linking to it.  

You also have the choice to set up a landing page and tagline so your shop can really stand out.  

However, Shop Search Ads is a limited option. Only Shopee Mall and Shopee Preferred sellers, and merchants with impressive sales track record and shop ratings can avail of this.  

3. Discovery Ads

The third type of Shopee paid advertisements is the Discovery Ads, which is the platform’s only targeted ads tool. Through Discovery Ads, you will be able to reach out to your desired target markets.  

Products advertised through Discovery Ads will be shown on multiple sections of Shopee including Daily Discovery on the homepage, Similar Products, and You May Also Like section on related product detail pages.

It also has additional settings such as the Audience Setting that enables you to customise your audience based on age, gender, locations, interest or behavior which you think are relevant to what you’re selling.  

Another one would be the Display Ad Location that will help you choose which places on the Shopee platform are ideal to put up your ads.
