Kuala Lumpur (2 January 2017) — Shopee, the number one mobile marketplace in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, had an exponential growth and success throughout 2016.  Established for a year now, Shopee has gained immense popularity with over 25 million installs regionally. In hopes of a greater success in 2017, Shopee started off the year by launching their month-long ‘Huat Kaw Kaw’ campaign earlier today. To usher in the new year, ‘Huat Kaw Kaw’ which means ‘get prosperous’ in local slang, was chosen to shower shoppers with fabulous prizes and deals to start the new year.

Chinese New Year isn’t perfect without an Ang Pao. As part of this festive season, Shopee produced a line of limited edition red packets called ‘Fortune Ang Pao’ for its shoppers. This limited edition ‘Fortune Ang Pao’ will be sold at RM1 at Shopee’s Official Account, Shopee_mamak. These metallic-coloured Ang Paos come with a RM7 shopping voucher for a little extra surprise. Unlike normal red packets, shoppers of these fortune packets would also stand a chance to win prizes ranging from OPPO, Huawei and Samsung mobile phones to movie tickets, holiday packages, Shopee vouchers and 888,888 Shopee coins.

“2016 was an excellent year for Shopee with more than 4X growth. At Shopee, with our limited edition Fortune Ang Pao we would like to ensure that everyone would be a winner and start the new year with loads of luck and prosperity. In addition, we would have numerous deals in January which would allow all users to save time and money shopping and at the same time spend quality time with family”, said Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director of Shopee Malaysia.
