Shopee, Shopee Xpress partner with Whisper and World Vision to empower young women to #Share The Confidence

Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, recently launched the #ShareTheConfidence campaign in partnership with Whisper and World Vision, to educate Filipinos on the importance of menstrual hygiene management. This initiative is part of Shopee Bayanihan, the company's umbrella CSR arm that seeks to provide support for communities in need through partnerships with various humanitarian organizations.

As part of the campaign, Whisper pledged to match and donate sanitary products for every Whisper product sold on Shopee from May 28 to June 30. Almost 130,000 young women from World Vision’s partner communities all over the Philippines benefitted from the initiative and received sanitary products through the delivery efforts of Shopee Xpress, Shopee’s logistics arm. Apart from raising awareness on proper menstrual hygiene management, the #ShareTheConfidence campaign also aimed to break the stigma around menstrual health and address the issue of period poverty in the Philippines.

Last July 22, Shopee and its partners culminated the #ShareTheConfidence campaign with an on-site event in Laurel, Batangas to turn over Whisper sanitary pads to over 85,000 beneficiaries within the area.

Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines, shared “Everything we do at Shopee goes back to our main mission of serving the underserved through our technology. We are humbled to partner with Whisper and World Vision to empower Filipinas in need. We look forward to maximizing our platform to deliver even more meaningful initiatives that will benefit communities all over the Philippines.”

With Shopee Bayanihan, Shopee furthers its objective to make e-commerce for everyone by helping communities benefit from the power of digital transformation wherever they are in the Philippines.

GoTyme Bank invests in security measures through state-of-the-art technology ahead of launch

Gokongwei Group-backed GoTyme Bank adopts the latest security tools in response to consumers’ growing cybersecurity concerns.

GoTyme Bank, a partnership between the Gokongwei Group and Singapore-based digital banking group Tyme, is optimizing its tech and security measures ahead of its launch. In 2021, the bank received its license to operate in line with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas’ goal of digitizing 50% of all payments and having 70% of Filipino adults into the banked population by 2023.

Amid incidences of phishing, malware, ransomware, fraud, identity theft, and social engineering in the banking industry, GoTyme Bank has heavily invested in the best cyber security controls to strengthen its defenses. Social engineering is the act of deceiving individuals in order to manipulate them to disclose confidential or personal information, such as one-time pins (OTP) or passcodes.

“Without good cybersecurity you can’t have trust,” explains Chris Bennett, Chief Technology Officer at GoTyme Bank. “We make use of the best security controls throughout the lifecycle.”

As a cloud-first and cloud-only company, GoTyme Bank is able to react to threats much faster than any organization, Bennett emphasizes. Built on Tyme Bank’s experience and success in South Africa, GoTyme Bank is working with the world’s leading providers to prevent and combat potential threats.

"Being cloud only, we can make changes fast,” Bennett remarks. “We bring experiences of tackling threats from South Africa and we’ve been able to integrate some of the latest security tools.”

Even before GoTyme Bank’s code is written, teams are already trained in cyber development best practices, Bennett notes. The bank makes use of SonarQube, an open-source platform that continuously inspects and reviews codes to detect bugs. During the building process, internal and external security teams test the code for any vulnerabilities, and upon going live, a cyber operations center monitors and then alert and acts upon threats.

“Our infrastructure is managed by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and we’re able to benefit from the range of secure certifications that they offer, such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST),” Bennett says. AWS control towers allow GoTyme Bank to automate reporting and identification of issues.

AWS is the world’s most comprehensive and widely used cloud platform that offers on-demand cloud computing web services to millions of customers, while PCI DSS is a global information security standard for protecting data. NIST, meanwhile, is a cybersecurity framework used by governments and industries worldwide. GOTyme also credits its experience working with NICE Actimize, the leading global provider of financial crime, risk, and compliance solutions, to guard against fraud and money laundering

When it comes to high-value items, biometrics may also be used to verify the identity of individuals making a transaction. “Our payments fraud capability is world-leading, and we make use of our own and also industry data to spot and prevent attacks,” Bennett says.

Once live, GoTyme Bank clients will be able to open an account and receive a free personalized debit card in under five minutes via digital kiosks located in Robinsons Malls and Robinsons Supermarkets. GoTyme Bank promises to deliver high-quality banking products and services such as better savings interest rewards, fund transfers, trading, and investing, as well as 24/7 customer support via call, chat, or e-mail.

GoTyme Bank is set to launch in Q3 2022. For early access, subscribe to GoTyme’s newsletter for exclusive updates on exciting features and products.

Tips on how Shopee Sellers were able to build a successful business online

With inflation rising and economic recession looming, it may seem difficult for aspiring entrepreneurs to invest in an online business. Despite the economic situation and the challenges it poses, Davao-based Shopee sellers Shiela Reyes-Lao and Lou Putian prove that one can still manage to start an online business and become successful.

In a recent face-to-face event held by Shopee for Davao-based entrepreneurs, both sellers shared how easy it was to join and grow their businesses on Shopee, even in the face of economic uncertainty.

Tip #1: Just go online, digitize your business

SY Glow Cosmetics owner Lou Putian’s e-commerce journey started when her husband, an Overseas Filipino Worker, was sent home in 2020. “We had little to no income at the time. To continue paying our bills, I started selling bath and body care essentials haphazardly online until some of my loyal customers urged me to set up a Shopee store,” she shared.

In just 2 months after creating an account and learning how to market her products through the platform, her sales greatly increased. “From barely making ends meet then, I’ve now been able to fulfill my dream of purchasing houses for family members and even establishing my own warehouse,” she added.

Meanwhile, Shiela of Cacao Culture, already joined Shopee in 2017. However, she and her team only focused their efforts on the platform after the pandemic affected their operations. “Initially, our Shopee account was only meant to supplement our retail store sales. But when the pandemic hit, we were forced to close down our physical stores and outlets—prompting us to refocus our efforts on e-commerce,” she shared.

Since making the leap to e-commerce, Shiela grew her sales volume 7x. Cacao Culture’s growth and visibility on the platform also encouraged Shiela and her team to carry more Davao-based cacao brands and sell them nationwide.

Tip #2: Maximize Shopee’s convenience, seller tools, and nationwide logistics network

Besides the need to shift to a new income stream, what drew both sellers to Shopee was how easy it was to onboard into and sell on the platform. “With Shopee, all you need is a mobile phone and internet connection,” shared Lou. “The convenience that Shopee offers allows entrepreneurs like me to manage my own business and care for my family, all from the comfort of my own home.”

Having benefited from the seamless Shopee experience to easily bring sellers online, Shiela also highlighted that growing and sustaining one’s business is another story and different kind of challenge. Fortunately, Shopee offers tools like insights and marketing solutions to help sellers further their business growth and visibility. Moreover, Shopee’s continuous logistics expansion nationwide also allows sellers like Shiela to reach more customers.

“As a Davao-based seller, I found it challenging to sell my products online and attract more buyers at the beginning. Through Shopee’s establishment of more hubs in Mindanao and the tools on the platform’s Marketing Center, I was able to attract more customers nationwide by setting up promotions, discounts, and vouchers,” she said.

Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines said, “It is heartwarming to hear Lou and Shiela’s success stories as it is a testament to what sellers are capable of achieving on Shopee’s platform. Through seller education activities, the continuous advancement of platform features, nationwide hub expansion, and other initiatives, we strengthen our commitment to deliver a safe and convenient online shopping experience for both our customers and sellers, no matter where they are in the Philippines.”

Buying a Car in the New Normal: 3 Things to Consider Before Making the Decision

Having a car has never been more important. Due to the pandemic, a car has become a necessity rather than just a luxury since commuting or taking public transport increases our chances to be exposed to the virus. It is now considered to be a "safer" option if we use our own. Having a car is also helpful during medical emergencies especially when there is no ambulance available in the area.

Unfortunately, buying one may not be easy since it comes with a hefty price tag. In fact, buying a car nowadays is more expensive. According to Forbes, in January 2022, 82.2% of all new-vehicle purchases were above the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. This is because of several factors including the pandemic, shortage of semiconductors (chips), and now the war in Ukraine. With skyrocketing prices, potential buyers will need to do research and adequate planning before making a decision.

Here are 3 things to consider before buying a car:

1. Determine what type of car you need

Given that there are so many different models and car types available, it is important to find a car suitable for your needs. Ask yourself these questions
  • What is the main purpose or how do you intend to use the car? Is it for city driving only? 
  • Who will be using the car? How many passengers?
  • What cargo capacity do you need?
  • Are you looking for manual or automatic transmission?
  • If you are considering larger vehicles, do you have enough available parking space at home?
Based on your answers, you can narrow down your choices and come up with a list of the cars that will fulfill your requirements. 

Also, check your priority when it comes to cars - Is it engine power or fuel efficiency?

Due to increasing fuel prices, we have to consider the fuel consumption of our chosen vehicle. More horsepower generally means higher fuel consumption. Choose a vehicle with no more horsepower than you actually need in that way you can save on fuel and reduce environmental impacts. 

2. Decide Whether to Buy a New or Used Car

Getting a brand new or a used car has both advantages and disadvantages. Brand new cars are more reliable, have increased durability, and have better fuel efficiency. Used cars, on the other hand, are more affordable and cheaper given that the bulk of depreciation already occurred. 

Please note though that buying a used car doesn't necessarily result in savings. Used cars may likely cost less to purchase but one may still end up paying more in the long run due to maintenance costs. Thus, in case you decide to get a used one, the ideal age for a used vehicle is 3-4 years old maximum. 

3. Set a Budget and Check Financing Options

Budget is a top consideration when buying a car. Decide how much are you willing to spend not just on the purchase but also on the operating and maintenance costs of the car.

According to the 20/4/10 rule, it is recommended that car buyers should at least make a 20% down payment on a car with a four-year car loan and then spend no more than 10% of their monthly income on transportation expenses. Monthly transportation expenses include your auto loan payments, maintenance, gas, and car insurance. 

You can check how much will you spend on gas, here.

If you are planning to apply for financing, it is important to determine how much monthly payment can you afford.

Make use of online tools like to help you determine your monthly auto loan payments while considering your downpayment, rebates, interest rates, and sales taxes. It's easy to use and produces instant results. You can even create and print a loan amortization schedule which many find really helpful. 


Whether you are a new car owner or not, it is important to consider all of these things in that way, you can avoid costly mistakes of getting the wrong car or a financing plan that doesn't work for you. 

Once you have done research and planning, you will have the confidence that you made the right decision. You can simply sit, back, and relax. or better yet, play the Cars Lightning Speed (a racing game based on the Disney animated movie series)

Ready for Adulting? ShopeePay shares Financial Tips for Fresh Graduates

Social media feeds are flooded with graduation photos, videos, and congratulatory greetings. With one chapter closing, comes another one. If you’re a fresh college graduate, it’s time to welcome the “adulting life” and the grown-up responsibilities that come with it. As you build your career and earn your own money, you’ll have greater purchasing power.

Hence, it’s important to take control of your finances early on. ShopeePay, Shopee’s integrated mobile wallet, can help you in this aspect.

With ShopeePay’s cost-saving features and rewarding perks, you can become a financially-
savvy young adult. Here are tips to help you get ready for adulting:

Set aside a budget for savings and expenses

Allocate a portion of your monthly income for expenses and a percentage for savings. To avoid accidentally using your savings, you can transfer your allotted expenses to your ShopeePay wallet and use it for your transactions. Skip admin fees and cash in for free when you link your BPI or UnionBank account. For other banks, simply use your bank’s online app and cash in via InstaPay to get up to P25 cashback on your first two InstaPay transactions per month.

Send money for free when you make your transactions

Online money transfers are very convenient. However, you have to pay additional interbank or e-wallet fees if your recipients have different bank accounts. The fees seem like a small amount at first, but they add up over time. If you’re using ShopeePay, you don’t need to settle any fees because you can send money for free to any bank, e-wallet, or Shopee user.

Aside from the instant savings, you’ll also stand a chance to win coins and money when you join ShopeePay promos like ShopeePay Mission and Happy Hour. If you’re lucky, you can add your winnings to your budget.

Be more cost-effective when giving gifts

When it comes to gift-giving, you don’t necessarily have to purchase actual presents and pay additional delivery fees. Sending money is an economical and practical alternative to convey your good wishes. Now that you’re an adult, you’ll come to realize that a lot of people appreciate monetary gifts. ShopeePay has a feature called Ang Pao that allows you to instantly send money to multiple people in one go, all for free, which is a perfect way to gift your friends during special occasions. You can also use Ang Pao to surprise your parents—a thoughtful way of giving back to them after putting you through school.

Take advantage of discounts when paying bills and personal necessities

As you take on more responsibilities in your household, bills tend to pile up. Every month, you’ll have to pay for utilities like electricity, water, cable, landline, and internet. With ShopeePay, you can conveniently pay your monthly bills online and even get up to 100% cashback for your transactions for new users (minimum spend P180, capped at 180 coins).

Connection is important as you grow your professional network, both online and face-to-face. 
When reloading your prepaid SIM, buy mobile data and load with ShopeePay to get up to a 10% discount.

Be a smart spender and bargain hunter

Adulting is also about having fun and rewarding yourself as long as it’s within your budget. Before making a purchase, think hard first if it’s something you’ll be using for a long time. The next thing you should consider is where to buy it and how to pay for it so you can get your money’s worth. If it’s on Shopee, pay for it with ShopeePay to access shipping discounts and 
cashback vouchers. For more bargains, make it a habit to check “ShopeePay Near Me” on the Shopee app to enjoy exclusive deals for as low as P1 from groceries, gas stations, food, beverage outlets, and more.

Navigating the real world and taking on financial responsibilities can be challenging for new graduates. Follow these tips from ShopeePay and start developing good financial habits.

Shopee Apprentice Program Upskills Young Emergent Leaders

By 2030, the digital economy is projected to generate up to PHP 5 trillion (USD 101.3 billion) in economic value in the Philippines. With e-commerce set to become a key pillar of the economy in the near future, there lies an opportunity to develop emerging tech talents to support this rapid growth. Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, recognizes the need to upskill young Filipino talents and mold them to become tech leaders of tomorrow through its Shopee Apprentice Program.

Open to top university students, the Shopee Apprentice Program aims to develop future leaders in the tech industry by equipping them with critical skills such as problem-solving, effective communication, and adapting to a fast-paced working environment. Throughout the duration of the internship, Apprentices are immersed in Shopee’s collaborative work culture.

They are given the chance to gain firsthand experience working on impactful large-scale projects in the e-commerce and digital finance industry. Apart from the exposure and valuable work experience, Apprentices can also expect to receive guidance and mentorship from Shopee’s top leaders as their internship journey progresses. Upon completion of the program, successful Apprentices have the option to join an accelerated track for the Global Leaders Program, Shopee’s 2-year flagship graduate program for young professionals.

This year’s batch of Apprentices is a diverse mix of top students from prestigious local and international universities. To mark the beginning of their internship journey, the Apprentices were welcomed with an on-site event held at the Shopee office. The gathering allowed them to get to know one another, and hear the advice and testimonials from Apprentice Program alumni and mentors. Through their sharing, they were able to get an idea of what is in store for them and what to expect, as they embark on their rigorous internship journey.

Karen Perez, Head of People at Shopee Philippines, shared “The Shopee Apprentice Program is a testament to our commitment to developing leaders of tomorrow. We look forward to maximizing our platform to provide even more opportunities to hone the skills of young tech talents, even at the career preparation stage.”

The impending growth of the local tech industry emphasizes the need to develop and prepare young tech talent. To support this growth, Shopee is always on the lookout for young Filipinos interested in becoming drivers of growth in the tech industry.

Recreate the Perfect Hotel Sleep Experience at Home

We spend approximately 229,961 hours, or 33% of our lifetime sleeping. Not to mention having a good night's sleep and adequate rest directly affects our health. Thus, it is imperative that we give utmost importance to creating a conducive sleeping environment for all of us. 

Personally, when I say a conducive sleeping environment, the first thing that comes to mind is the hotel sleep experience. If I could forever live in a hotel, I would love to but of course, it is simply not practical. Luckily, we can now recreate the perfect hotel sleep experience at home. 

All you need are these premium quality pillows and sheets from Home de Luxe! 

1. Home de Luxe 5-Star Hotel Quality Premium Korean Fiber Pillow

These pillows are highly resilient and bounceable, providing the right level of neck support and soothing pressure points. It also uses 100% hypoallergenic microfiber to ensure a comfortable and sneeze-free sleep. 

The Brushe microfiber sourced from Korea offers long-lasting strength and resistance to shrinking. It is available in 3 sizes: standard, queen, and king. 

2. Home de Luxe 5 Star Hotel Quality 4-in-1 Comforter Blanket Set (Cloud Collection)

This comfortable set is super cute! Aside from aesthetics, it also offers long-lasting strength and natural resistance to shrinking and fading, no matter how many times you wash the sheets. 

It is crafted and hand-stitched with care and attention to ensure its quality. It is also easy to clean and care for. It is available in different colors and sizes. So far, the midnight gray is my favorite. :)

3. Home de Luxe Mattress Topper

Tuck into a cloud-like oasis with Home de Luxe's supportive plush Mattress Topper. I can personally attest to this that yes, having an extra layer of luxury and comfort by using a mattress topper is life-changing. It just feels so good to lie down on it. Not to mention it also offers extra protection for your mattress. 

If you are not familiar with Home de Luxe Mattress Topper, it is filled with 2kg of premium Korean fiber. It comes with garters on four corners to attach firmly to your bed and a 250 thread count alternative cotton fabric. 

Most importantly, it is 100% hypoallergenic to ensure you a comfortable and sneeze-free sleep.
