To set up your shop, you can either use the Shopee app or the Shopee Seller Center. However, setting up your store via a desktop or laptop computer is advisable for ease of viewing and setup.
You can easily access your shop via Shopee Seller Center as this dashboard contains a plethora of incredible features. You can easily monitor your shop's performance, upload products, and view your shop's rating. Additionally, it includes a Marketing Center where you can use it to increase traffic and sales.
What should you first consider doing?
You may sell products up to 1000 listings and categorise them accordingly, so that customers can view your listing easily.
You may upload up to nine photographs per listing and for video, you need to upload it via the Shopee app. To start uploading your product, navigate to your Shopee Seller Center, click on My Products, click Add a New Product, and begin uploading your photos.

#4. Cool tips for beginners.
Here are some of the tips that you can implement before you start selling on Shopee.
1. Decorate your shop
Decorating your shop will help you grow your Shopee customer base and make it more appealing to buyers! Don't forget to include your shop's cover photo, images and videos, as well as a description in the Shop Profile section.
It can be as simple as a greeting to your customers followed by a call to action such as "Follow this shop to receive an additional discount."
2. Choosing the right images for products.
You need to make sure that your images are in high resolution and clear enough for your customers. Take your product photo in a bright environment for the best-looking images, preferably with a white background to emphasise the product.
If you want to emphasise specific details about your products, take photos from various angles. Your photos should also include product specifications, product demonstrations, and product variations such as colour and sizes.
You can include a model to help demonstrate the product to make them more attractive to buyers. This is optional, but you can also add a watermark to your product image to protect them.

3. Description of your product.
Create a compelling product description and title. Avoid using caps lock, and unnecessary symbols when writing your product title. Use Shopee's most popular keywords to increase your products' visibility among buyers, but avoid including spammy keywords in your title.
You may be as specific as possible when describing your product. Several pieces of essential information include the following:
- Product Name
- Product Description (mandatory)
- Category (mandatory)
- Brand attribute (mandatory)
- Other attributes (optional)
You can also emphasize the benefits of your product and some details that you want your customers to know like shipping period and etc.
#5. Choose the best shipping partner.
Choosing the right shipping partner will benefit you a lot in the long run! A prompt delivery service will help increase your shop's sales, as satisfied customers will give your shop the highest rating when they receive their products on time.
There are a lot of courier services that you can pick. Keep in mind to choose the best courier service that can cater to your product and match your shipping needs better.
Once you have chosen a courier service, toggle the button on in the Shipping Setting.
