Shopee Live Milyonaryo instantly changes lives of lucky livestream shoppers

(Press Release)

Shopee Live, an interactive live-streaming feature on the Shopee app, has emerged as a powerful tool for Filipinos to explore new opportunities and build better lives. Its combination of engaging entertainment, enticing deals, and rewarding prizes has transformed how Filipinos shop and opened doors to rewarding experiences.

During Shopee’s Mega Pamasko Sale, the platform gave livestream shoppers a chance to become instant millionaires through Shopee Live Milyonaryo, where avid Shopee users Cyra Adona and Via Ingente (in cover photo) were drawn as two of the life-changing promo’s lucky winners. 

Via, an online clothing seller from Quezon province, has been using Shopee since the start of the pandemic to source items for selling through Shopee Live. This allows her to score incredible deals on wholesale items thanks to the app’s discounts and promos, such as free shipping and 70% off deals. 

Halos araw-araw po ako umoorder lalo na sa Shopee Live kasi nakaka-discount po ako. Mas malaki po ‘yung kinikita ko at ‘yung balik sa akin [I order from Shopee Live almost everyday because I am able to get discounts. I also earn more and get higher returns],” Via shared as she recalled the reasons why she became an avid fan of Shopee Live. Aside from livestreams of fellow online sellers, Via is also fond of watching live videos of creators and celebrities. “Nakakawili rin po kasi manood kahit minsan walang pambili[It’s fun to watch even if sometimes, I don’t have the means to buy],” she said. Little did she know that her regular watching activity would lead her to claim the raffle code that would make her an instant millionaire.

Isang beses lang po ako nag claim ng code, kaya ‘di ko po inakalang mananalo ako [I only claimed the code once, so I didn’t expect that I would win],” Via said. She plans to use the cash prize to buy a new lot for her family. “Hindi po amin yung lupa kung saan nakatayo ‘yung bahay namin, so kapag pinaalis kami doon, wala na po kaming bahay at lupa. Gusto ko po sana ‘yung meron akong matatawag na akin [The lot on which our house stands is not ours, so if we get evicted, we will no longer have a home and a land. I would like to have something that I can call my own],” she expounded. To Via, winning one million pesos meant one step closer to her dream – having a home of their own. 

First-time mom Cyra from Naic, Cavite, is among the early Shopee users since it was launched in 2015. She was drawn to the app because of its convenience when purchasing products online and the great deals it offers for shoppers like her. One of her favorite features is Shopee Coins since it can be used alongside platform vouchers.

Because mom duties can be a handful, Cyra prefers buying clothes and other products online, specifically through Shopee Live. It saves her the time and effort of having to go out, but at the same time, being able to see how the actual products look like. “Sa Shopee Live, nafeflex nang maayos ng sellers ‘yung mga damit, mas naipapakita kung ano ‘yung maganda at ‘yung actual sizes [In Shopee Live, sellers can showcase the clothes well, showing what looks good and the actual sizes more effectively],” Cyra said. Just like Via, she is also enticed by the many vouchers and discounts made available in Shopee Live. 

Upon learning about Shopee Live Milyonaryo through one of the streams she watched, she simply claimed a unique code and eventually found herself as Shopee’s latest millionaire. 

Super blessed kasi hindi ko talaga ineexpect na mangyayari ‘yon. Sobrang bihira lang kasi mangyari ‘yung mga ganito, kaya sobrang saya lang talaga na hindi mo maipaliwanag [I feel super blessed because I really didn’t expect that to happen. Instances like these are very rare, so it’s just pure joy that you can’t really explain],” Cyra explained. 

When asked about her plans with the prize money, Cyra said that she is going to use it for her five-month-old baby who is currently confined in the hospital due to pneumonia, while the rest will be set aside to fund her baby’s education.

Both Via and Cyra expressed how Shopee has gone beyond being a platform for shopping and entertainment and how it has become a transformative force in the lives of Filipinos.
