Shopee is an ecommerce platform that operates in Southeast Asia and Taiwan. And they have announced they will be getting together with DHL eCommerce to offer greater convenience and choice to Shopee customers in Thailand.
Now sellers on Shopee will be able to access over 500 DHL ServicePoints across Thailand to drop off their parcels and have them delivered to their shoppers across the country. And sellers can also arrange a pickup from DHL for door-to-door delivery service to their buyers.
DHL eCommerce is also reportedly aiming to grow its ServicePoint outlets in Thailand to over a thousand in the coming months so they can offer a more comprehensive service to people in the country.
To mark the start of the partnership, Shopee and DHL will be extending a limited period free shipping promotion. Shopee sellers can enjoy free shipping nationwide from now until the 30th June when they select DHL as the shipping provider for their purchases.
We are thrilled to be partnering Shopee to offer greater ease, choice and control over the online delivery experience. Shoppers’ expectations are growing with regards to their entire purchasing experience. They expect a great and seamless experience from the time they click to purchase until the goods are received. A recent report states that 60% of consumers purchased from one online merchant over another because delivery options were more convenient for their needs, highlighting the pivotal role of delivery in the overall online shopping experience.
