Since the pandemic started, online shopping has become more popular than ever before with everyone staying home. Not just buying, selling products online has also become a norm for some of us to earn a living during this tough time. Today, Shopee has announced that it will start to collect a small amount of commission fees from the sellers starting from 1 June 2021.

Starting from the mentioned date, the commission fees will be imposed on sellers who have received more than 100 completed orders. Meanwhile, the sellers who have not achieved 100 orders will not be affected. It is also worth mentioning that the orders placed before 1 June and completed on or after June 1 will not be charged any additional fees.
