Shopee is one of the many e-commerce platform options we have in Malaysia. But it was never one where you can get fresh produce, fish or meat like you would in a market. Until now that is, as the e-commerce platform has announced that is now has perishable goods on sale now.
That said, this will first be available only in major cities and towns within the Klang Valley as part of a pilot program. Shopee did not specify a date for a nationwide rollout just yet. What the company did mention are the two partners it is working with to make this happen.
One is the Fish Club, which offers a wide variety of seafood, from local catches to imported salmon. It is currently offering a flat RM20 shipping fee, which is waived is you spend RM300 or more. Then there’s FreshTap, which offers a mix of poultry, seafood and greens, for a flat delivery fee of RM12.
Shopee says that if you buy your fresh produce from either of these sellers, you can expect your order to arrive in 1 to 3 days. As part of the launch of this pilot program, certain items are getting a 50% price cut on 3 and 4 March 2020. If you want to take advantage of these, check out both the Fish Club and FreshTap on Shopee, linked below.
