We believe in supporting the growth of our community as they serve as key inspiration sources for shoppers. Shopee has been engaging KOLs for various campaigns over the years. We continuously strengthen our relationship with them via a series of upcoming exciting activities. By doing so, we can provide buyers with the best deals and exclusive perks from their favourite KOLs, while sellers can also engage these KOLs to grow their brands.”
