One thing you shouldn’t neglect in your Shopee selling is the calculation of revenue relative to the fees applicable to your potential sales. Shopee seller fees are essential to be able to accurately create a forecast of how much you’re going to earn from your venture. Here is a breakdown of the fees you will be subject to in the Shopee marketplace. 

Shopee Philippines

In Shopee Philippines, marketplace and Shopee Mall sellers must pay a transaction fee of 1.5% for every transaction. 

A 2% (VAT Inclusive) commission fee is also applicable towards Shopee Mall sellers (but not marketplace sellers). The formula calculation for the commission fee is as follows:

Sum x Total Price × 2%

The free is auto-deducted from the account of the seller upon confirmation of the payment release from the customer.

Shopee Malaysia 

Shopee Malaysia sellers are subjected to a 2.12% transaction fee. There is also a service fee but it only applies to sellers who are associated with certain Shopee programmes. 

Here are the variations of Shopee service fees:

  • RM15 Free Shipping Package – 3.18%
  • 10% Coins Cashback Programme – 4.24%
  • RM15 Free Shipping Package + 10% Coins Cashback Programme – 6.36%

All sellers also need to pay a fee of RM0.12 when they exceed three manual withdrawals per week. 

Shopee Thailand

For every transaction, there will be a transaction fee of 2% for all sellers. This Shopee seller fee will be deducted straight from the payment of the customer. 

There is also a separate transaction fee for purchases that were completed through credit card installments. The transaction fee herein will be 5%. The breakdown of this fee is as follows:

2% – credit card transaction

3% installment transaction 

Meanwhile, here is the commission fee per product category that only applies to Shopee Mall sellers:

Forecasting an accurate potential revenue is important because you want to know how much money you are really making. But ultimately, it is vital when you enter stages of having to set aside investments for expansion such as marketing and branding. If you enter this stage without specific knowledge on your Shopee seller fees, this can result in errors in computation which will inevitably lead to discrepancies in your income.
