But first, what is Shopee?
Shopee is just a another online shopping platform like Lazada, the infamous Amazon and Ali Express. The one thing that differs Shopee from the mighty Amazon is the region it covers. Shopee is a south east Asia based website and the seller are mostly operating from south east Asia and China whole seller. So can you guess how cheap and affordable the price going to be?They are mostly a steal, guys!
Things to Consider To Buy Efficiently At Shopee
I myself have several characteristics I search for when shopping online. So, in terms of yarn, I have these Criterias I look before hitting that Place Order button. Those are:
- Keyword to search for yarn
- Free Shipping
- Local or Overseas Store
Okay now let me tell you one by one what I mean by these 4 criterias. Ready? Let’s go!
Be Specific with Keyword to Search For Yarn
It’s okay if you just type out ‘YARN’ or ‘BENANG KAIT’ in the serach section, but I personally like to narrow down my search to save time. So, I would suggest you to type what kind of yarn you want to buy. Take these keywords as example:
- 3 ply yarn / milk cotton yarn
- 4 ply yarn / milk cotton yarn
- 5 yarn / milk cotton yarn
- Bulky yarn
- Tshirt yarn
- Mix yarn
- Silk yarn
- Poly Yarn
- Benang Kait Nona
- Benang Kait Minlon
- Benang Kait Wina
- Straw Yarn
- Jute Rope
- Polyester Yarn
- Fluffy Yarn
Please Make Sure You Get Free Shipping Guys!!!
Shopee will give a FREE SHIPPING if you shop RM19 and above. But, not every shop has this feature, so what you can do is searching for the RM19 FREE SHIPPING logo in the thumbnail OR use FILTER feature.
Alert on Whether Your Yarn is Coming From Local or Overseas Store
Some people cannot stand waiting for 14 days the least for shipping when shopping from Overseas Store a.k.a China whole seller . So, what you can do is to make sure the store selling yarn you want to buy is located in your country.
Don’t Forget To Collect Vouchers GUYS!!!
Vouchers will make you pay less than what you should. So, be sure to collect them from available stores and use them during checkout to enjoy discounts and cashback.
That’s it! Now it’s time for some Technical Tips
Chat With Seller Before Buying
Okay alls, sometimes, the yarn you’re aiming will not be available. So, if you hesitate, feel free to chat with seller and ask if the code colour is available.
You can Always Type Out YARN if You Don’t Know What You Search For
Definitely NO PROBLEM folks.
Check For Any Defects or Not Complete Order Before Confirming Received
This way, you can get refunds for the unfortunate event. But once you click ORDER RECEIVED, you cannot claim anything. Okay, so check first before click!
