Shopee vs Lazada. Which is better for learners and mentors?
In the battle of the brands, Shopee vs Lazada would come to mind. Both of these platforms are popular in Southeast Asia but which is better?
Lazada is backed by Alibaba from China, which is one of the world’s largest e-commerce companies. Shopee, on the other hand, originated from the popular Singaporean gaming company, Garena.
Shopee started as a mobile platform whereas Lazada started as a website but both platforms now have their own websites and mobile apps.
For price, Shopee generally offers lower prices particularly on gadgets, clothes, toys and bags. For delivery, both don’t differ much except for Shopee’s longer overseas delivery time and Lazada’s longer delivery time to Mindanao. For shipping fees, Shopee offers lower shipping fees compared to Lazada. For product range, you get a larger selection from Lazada compared to Shopee.
So which is better? It generally depends on the buyer.
