MY JOURNEY AS A SHOPEE SELLER [December 2017]


Most of us have difficulties of decluttering our old stuffs particularly our clothes. One of the best things I thought of was to sell all those stuffs online since I, myself, was an avid online buyer. I am too excited to sell online! I made a new account with shopee (don't worry, once you install the app from GOOGLE PLAY STORE, instructions on how to create an account was just as easy as 1,2,3 - you'll never get lost, I promise!)

I started posting my GOOD AS NEW stuffs and I registered a pickup address to be eligible for free shipping on shopee.

WHY DO I NEED TO REGISTER A PICKUP ADDRESS?
It is for you to be eligible to the free shipping program that shopee offers. You can check your area from the list of serviceable areas for BLACK ARROW INTEGRATED, LBC INTEGRATED & ZOOM COURIER from their FAQs which you can see from the SHOPEE HELP CENTRE.

HOW DO I REGISTER A PICKUP ADDRESS?

Go to your account and go to the tab that says SELLING. There you can see MY SHIPPING and by clicking it, you can see a PICKUP ADDRESS where you’ll be prompted to enter your address. Please do so and that would be okay. Now, all you have to do is to wait for shopee to confirm if you’re in! You’ll receive this notification once you’re approved:
After just a few days, I have my very first buyer!!! YEY!!!! I also got the good news that my address was approved for free shipping because my area was included on SERVICEABLE AREAS for ZOOM COURIER. (As of December 10, 2017,  LBC and BLACK ARROW don't accept free shipping yet but Shopee promised to keep the sellers updated once the two started accepting again). Once you get accepted, all the instructions on what you need to do will already be given so don't worry much about these steps.

HOW WAS THE DELIVERY PROCESS?
Before the courier arrived, I already packed the item and they contacted me (text and call) when they were already outside my house to pick up the item. They gave me a receipt that will serve as my proof that the item was already picked up.
PS. You can ship the item on your own by going to your/your buyer's preferred courier. You can either cover the shipping fee or include it for the buyer to pay. Remember that you will independently handle everything on your own since the courier isn’t integrated with Shopee. 

WHAT TO DO AFTER PICK UP?
I go back to the shopee app and look for the item I just shipped. I clicked the button for shipping the item and I was prompted to input the tracking number. The tracking number was just the ORDER ID as for my case. (I don’t know how it goes with the other couriers yet)

HOW DO I GET PAID?
Once the transaction was successful, the money will be transferred to your SHOPEE WALLET which you can get by adding your bank account details. Withdrawal usually takes 2-3 working days before reflecting to your bank account.
