KUCHING: Shopee University has collaborated with FPX, the official online payment partner for Shopee, to empower more Malaysians to kick-start their e-commerce journey.

“How do I become a seller on Shopee?”, “Is it easy to sell my things on the platform?”, “How do I boost my sales?” are some frequently asked questions by prospective and existing sellers on Shopee.

Diving into e-commerce head-on can be daunting, especially into an ocean of growing online shoppers across Malaysia who are digitally-savvy and are constantly seeking convenience, fulfilment and enjoyment when shopping online.

To encourage potential business owners to start selling on Shopee, Shopee University was launched in 2016 to help them optimise and grow their business on the platform.

The workshops featured three different levels – beginners, intermediate and advanced, to cater to the different expertise of sellers, from starting a business online to mastering the art of selling on the platform and more. To date, over 5,000 sellers have participated in the workshops.

FPX, operated by Payments Network Malaysia Sdn Bhd (PayNet), is Malaysia’s preferred online payment solution that allows customers to pay for their eCommerce purchases using funds in their current, savings and credit card accounts at 29 banks in Malaysia.
