In the fiercely competitive environment of Shopee's e-commerce platform, optimizing business performance is a critical factor for every seller. However, many shop owners are unknowingly making seemingly minor mistakes that can silently "kill" sales and cause their Shopee stores to plummet rapidly.

This article will uncover the 5 most common mistakes that Shopee sellers often encounter and provide solutions to help you "turn the tide," boost sales, and achieve success on this dynamic e-commerce platform.

1. Shopee Ads: Creative Optimization - A "Double-Edged Sword" to Handle with Care

Shopee Ads’ "Creative Optimization" feature sounds appealing but contains many potential risks. In fact, the experts at Lameco have recorded numerous cases where a shop's advertising performance (ROAS) significantly dropped after enabling this feature.

Reason: Shopee's algorithm automatically selects a product image from the existing product image list to use as the ad representative image, but often the chosen image is ineffective, leading to a decrease in the ad's ROAS.

  • Limit the use of the "Creative Optimization" feature, especially if you lack sufficient experience and knowledge about Shopee advertising.
  • Closely monitor ad performance, particularly ROAS, to promptly adjust campaigns when necessary.

2. Product Images: The "Face" of Your Store Being Neglected

Product images are the first factor to attract customers' attention. Unprofessional, blurry, and unattractive images will cause customers to scroll past your store without a second thought.

  • Invest in high-quality product photography: clear, detailed, and showcasing the product's utility.
  • Use diverse images: including multiple angles and product videos to increase appeal.
  • Optimize image sizes: to fit appropriately for each display position on Shopee.

3. Product Descriptions: Unattractive and Failing to Convey Value

Sparse, incomplete product descriptions with spelling errors will confuse customers, making them lack the confidence to make a purchase decision.

  • Write detailed product descriptions: providing complete information about the product, including its benefits and value.
  • Use easy-to-understand language: friendly and relatable to the target customers.
  • Optimize keywords: choose suitable keywords to include in the product description to increase its visibility on the search page.

4. Customer Service: "Forgetting" the Key to Retaining Customers

Unprofessional service attitude, slow response time, and inadequate complaint resolution are the "last straws" that drive customers away from your store.

  • Always be friendly and dedicated in customer support.
  • Respond to messages quickly and professionally.
  • Handle complaints promptly, fairly, and effectively.
  • Regularly collect feedback from customers to improve service quality.

5. Store Management: Unprofessional, Missing Opportunities to Reach Customers

An inactive store, few promotions, and not participating in Shopee's campaigns will make you "disappear" among a "forest" of competitors.

  • Regularly update new products, run flash sales, and participate in Shopee's promotional programs.
  • Create discount codes and attractive gifts to attract customers.
  • Interact with customers, building a loyal customer community.
