Product Should Be Easy to Buy

It’s better if you can focus on one main topic or category of your products while the livestream is running. Also, you have to make sure that your items are within the Shopee Guidelines.

Do your best to introduce the items one at a time so your viewers can have a better understanding about them. You can also try to interact with it so your viewers get the idea of how the item should be used and how it works. For example if you’re livestreaming to introduce a makeup product, you can try to apply it on your hands to show off the colour and texture.

Also, make sure you have added the product you are trying to promote into the Shopping Bag section so your viewers can purchase them immediately without having to leave the livestream page.

Offer Discount and Utilize Voucher

As we all know, no one would be able to resist discounts! You can increase buyer conversion during livestream by offering exclusive prices or deals they can only have for as long as the livestreaming is running. Add the livestream sale in the Shopping Bag so they can appear on top of the list.

You can also offer permanent voucher codes on your platform and make sure they appear or displayed throughout the livestream.

Host Auction

Just like any normal auction, in Shopee Live Auction you can pick either a random audience or the one with the fastest hand to win your livestream exclusive deals. Once you have this schedule started, an “In Progress”  card will be displayed before changing into “End Round” once the session expires.


With Shopee Live, there’s a huge chance for sellers to increase awareness of both their shop and products as well as gaining new followers or even new customers.
