Step Up Your Ecommerce as a Shopee Preferred Seller | Digital 38

Shopee is one of the biggest names when it comes to Ecommerce in Southeast, and in this article, find out why becoming a Preferred Seller could do wonders for your online business.  

Types of Shopee Sellers 

For owners of Ecommerce businesses in Southeast, getting on board on Shopee is a big deal. As the largest Ecommerce virtual marketplace in the region, it’s the perfect platform to sell and promote your products to millions of potential buyers.


And like most Ecommerce platforms, there are several types of sellers on Shopee. You may have already encountered them while scrolling through the app. You have your average, consumer-to-consumer (C2C) sellers. It is the most common type of seller. And then you have your Shopee Preferred Seller and Shopee Mall Seller. 

Shopee Preferred Seller and Shopee Mall Seller are the two most distinguishable types of sellers. Because products from shops that earned either of this status are prominently displayed on Shopee’s search results page.

Tips on Becoming a Shopee Preferred Seller


There are tons of benefits you can get from being a Shopee Preferred Seller. Securing the top portions of the app’s search results is just one. But becoming one is not as easy as it sounds. First of all, it’s an invitation-basis only. Shopee’s developers and managers carefully select shops which can qualify for such status.  

However, this does not mean you’re going to lose all hope. In fact, here are some tips for sellers who want to join the band.  

1. Minimize Pre-Order Listings

Ensure the products you’re selling on Shopee are ‘on-hand’ or stored in a nearby warehouse. Pre-orders usually take longer than any kind of purchase. And as a result, consumers would rather look for other shops selling the similar item.

2. Improve Shop Ratings

When it comes to Ecommerce platforms like Shopee, a buyer’s review is everything. More often than not, new buyers will first check a store’s rating before making any purchase.  

Be responsive to your customers’ queries, and keep them updated on their packages. Avoid uploading misleading photos of your products. These are some of the ways that can help you improve your shop ratings.  

3. Boost Sales 

And last but not least, drive more conversions to your online store. If there’s one thing most preferred sellers on Shopee have in common is that they have the ability to rake in huge sales than the rest.
