Two of the biggest e-commerce platforms operating in the country are gearing up for their respective online sale promos for the June 6 weekend. Lazada and Shopee are aggressively trying to outdo each other as they offer irresistible sale offers and freebies for the much-hyped three-day online shopping spree from June 4 to 6, 2020.
Both e-commerce platforms have been enjoying more promising sales figures in the past several weeks. This is not surprising as more shoppers opt to stay at home amid the Covid-19 pandemic and the community quarantine. Everyone can expect good deals, in coordination with both platforms’ partner brands.
Lazada 6.6 Bounce Back Sale
The leading e-commerce platform in the country, Lazada Philippines, wants its shoppers to ‘unbox happiness’ as it continues to serve the community “by delivering the best experiences online and aiding businesses to recover.” The digital firm clarifies that unboxing happiness is not just for shoppers but also for its partners who also needs to weather the quarantine period.
Lazada Philippines reveals that it now has almost twice the number of sellers and brands in its platform during the first half of 2020, compared to the same period in 2019. The company emphasizes that this translates to a wider variety of products and probably better deals for consumers.
From June 4 to 6, Lazada shoppers can get free shipping vouchers at no minimum spend (worth about P50 on regular days). Most items from local and international partners (across all categories) are coming with hefty discounts. Moreover, a portion of customers’ spending will be donated to Covid-19 relief operations if they purchase items from participating brands like Colgate-Palmolive, Unilever Skin Sciences, Johnson & Johnson, Tiny Buds, and MIDEA.
Lazada is also mounting its Guess It! Bounce Back Special on Friday, June 5 at 12 noon. There will be an online program to be streamed on the app, to be hosted by radio jock Sam YG with Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach as a guest. On June 6, at 6 p.m., Lazada will stream Super Sing It!
