KUALA LUMPUR, 4 September 2020 – Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, collaborates with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia, to bring the well-loved Disney Funtastic Bazaar online at its 9.9 Super Shopping Day. This partnership demonstrates the efforts of Shopee and Disney to reach, engage, and capture a growing proportion of digital consumers in the region. From August to September, Shopee users across Southeast Asia can look forward to an exceptional line-up of exciting promotions and activities at the Disney Funtastic Bazaar. In Malaysia, the campaign will take place from 4 to 16 September.
In the past few years, the number of digital consumers across Southeast Asia has grown rapidly and is estimated to continue flourishing to reach 310 million by 2025. Coupled with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic which has propelled shifts in lifestyles, even more consumers are turning to e-commerce to fulfil their shopping needs. This presents an immense opportunity for brands and retailers to venture into or expand their businesses online, in order to capture this growing proportion of online-first consumers and future-proof their operations.
Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director, Shopee, said, “In the past few months, the growth of e-commerce has accelerated significantly. Today, e-commerce is no longer the exception but the norm. This is why we are excited to collaborate with Disney to bring the popular Disney Funtastic Bazaar on Shopee, which will feature exclusive Disney-themed content. By merging Disney’s fan-favourite characters and stories with Shopee’s wealth of insights on online shoppers, we strive to recreate the Disney experience that is loved by millions on Shopee, and to deliver a fun, engaging and an unforgettable experience for Disney and Shopee fans alike.”
