They would have up to a maximum of seven days to utilise their ShopeePay credit while up to 14 days is required for them to use their offline vouchers, once they receive these perks.

“Therefore, we have introduced this special campaign to help alleviate the burden of consumers and give them access to affordable daily essentials during this difficult period.
“This effort is also in line with Malaysia’s digital agenda which aims to drive digitalisation of retail through e-commerce, as well as contactless transactions,” he said.
Their online and offline retail partners stand to benefit from the sales activities from eDuit and the 9.9 Super Shopping Day, which would contribute positively to the domestic economy.
