I have a confession to make. Not all Christmas Presents are awesome. I am sure you agree with it. What if you have the chance to exchange it for one that you like? Shopee is going to help you become “bad” after Christmas in their #GetGreedy campaign.
From 26th December, you can post your unwanted or undesired gifts on Shoppee and hopefully, someone will find them useful and buy from you. Not only that, Shopee is also giving away vouchers for the best confession of their unwanted gifts.
Check out the Press Release for more details.
PS: FYI, I received all awesome gifts this Christmas. Not going to sell them anytime 🙂
It’s time to #GetGreedy with Shopee
After Christmas, it’s good to be bad.
Sell your unwanted gifts and buy what you really want on Shopee
SINGAPORE, December 26, 2015 – Shopee, Southeast Asia’s latest mobile customer-to-customer (C2C) marketplace announces its #GetGreedy campaign today. While many brands have focused their marketing efforts leading up to Christmas, Shopee is focusing on post-Christmas instead with its tongue-in-cheek campaign. From 26 December 2015, individuals can now find new homes for all the unwanted gifts they have received on Christmas Day. Shopee will be spurring individuals to #GetGreedy and sell their less-than-desirable gifts so they can buy the gifts they actually want on the mobile platform.
Although Christmas is the season of giving, people do not always receive gifts that hit the mark. “This year, we want to be Santa’s savvy helper and truly find a home for these gifts. We want people to receive something which they will genuinely be delighted to accept. And we are making this possible by encouraging individuals to sell their misguided gifts through Shopee to find new owners who can have better use of these items. And with Shopee’s intuitive interface, anyone can buy and sell their gifts easily in less than 30 seconds, anywhere and anytime,” says Chris Feng, Chief Executive Officer, Shopee.
On a mission for a confession
With every unwanted gift, there is likely a “gift face” or an expression of feigned delight behind it. Now, people do not have to just grin and bear their unwanted gifts. Individuals can share their worst gift confessions with Shopee via its official Facebook page and the mobile marketplace will make it their mission to gift them with something they actually want. Individuals can take a photo of his/her unwanted gift and write a quick caption behind the misguided present. The quirkiest and most interesting captions will stand a chance to win Shopee vouchers. All gift confessions will be kept anonymous, unless the participants wish to tag themselves. The community will get to decide on the top three winning entries as they cast their votes online. Submissions for online gift confessions will end on 31 December 2015, 2359 hrs and the public can place their votes by 6 January 2016, 2359 hrs.
Turn the unwanted to gold
Shopee aims to empower individuals to sell their unwanted Christmas gifts by making it easy for anyone to list products and manage transactions, while facilitating convenient and secure payment options. Everyone can find new homes for their unwanted gifts simply by listing their products on Shopee and using the app’s hashtag function to include #GetGreedy in their product description. The most interesting listings will then get to be featured in the special in-app #GetGreedy collection of products handpicked by Shopee, which will be made available for the community to browse and shop.
To allow the public to take part in the #GetGreedy experience offline, Shopee will also be egging people to share their unwanted gift confessions this post-Christmas weekend (26 December to 28 December 2015) from 12 pm to 9 pm at PoMo, level 1 Atrium. An inflatable photo and video booth – the first-of-its-kind in Singapore – will be parked in the mall for individuals to tell their stories and bring home memories of their best “gift faces”. Each video confession will entitle an individual to a mystery gift exclusively from Shopee and one lucky participant will go home with a brand new iPhone 6s.
After Christmas, it’s good to be bad. #GetGreedy and sell your unwanted gifts to buy what you want on Shopee. Let the gift confessions begin!
