Diving into e-commerce head-on can be daunting, especially into an ocean of growing online shoppers across Malaysia who are digitally savvy and constantly seeking convenience, fulfilment and enjoyment when shopping online. To encourage potential business owners to start selling on Shopee, Shopee University was launched in 2016 to help them optimise and grow their business on the platform. The workshops featured three different levels - beginners, intermediate and advanced, to cater to the different expertise of sellers, from starting a business online to mastering the art of selling on the platform and more. To date, over 5,000 sellers have participated in the workshops.

In its quest to empower more Malaysians to kick-start their e-commerce journey, Shopee University is collaborating with FPX, the official online payment partner for Shopee, by launching online tutorials for sellers. As an alternative to participating in the workshops, sellers are now able to learn and gain knowledge in the comfort of their own home or even on-the-go through on-demand content.
