Shopee has finally allowed the stacking of voucher codes in a single order, which means shoppers can potentially save more money by combining seller vouchers with platform vouchers.
Effective today, shoppers can collect seller vouchers and combine them with any platform vouchers available. The seller vouchers will be automatically applied at checkout, and even better, you can still use the free shipping vouchers which means you can stack up to three vouchers in a single order.
In practice, this means you stand to save quite a lot more, and no longer need to decide between choosing the shop voucher or the Shopee platform voucher. For example, you can now apply both F&N’s shop voucher (RM8 off RM55) as well as Shopee’s platform voucher (15% coins cashback for Groceries and Pets via ShopeePay) to stock up on your favourite F&N beverages.
This is very similar to how Lazada revamped its voucher mechanism, which allows for multiple voucher stacks. That said, Lazada allows an extra voucher stack compared to Shopee: you can stack seller vouchers, payment vouchers (applicable for payment via specific banks or TNG eWallet), as well as Lazada’s own platform vouchers. On top of that, Lazada also recently offered free shipping vouchers just like Shopee.
Another thing that Lazada does better with its voucher system is the “first claim” basis: successfully claiming one means it is yours to use at any time during the validity period – but this means it can be extremely difficult to get the popular or valuable vouchers. Meanwhile, Shopee’s voucher system works on a “first redemption” basis – anyone can claim the vouchers when they are released, but unlike Lazada, claiming it doesn’t guarantee it’s yours to use anytime. You need to be among the allocated number of voucher redemptions – if you’re too late, the voucher will expire automatically. That said, Shopee’s “coins cashback” vouchers generally have higher value.
Regardless, this is an important step by Shopee that works out for the better for Malaysian consumers to get more out of their spending on both e-commerce platforms. On top of these stackable vouchers, Malaysians can save even more by using the right credit cards that offer cashback for online shopping.
