Shopee, the e-commerce arm of Southeast Asia’s Sea Ltd, plans to launch online sales in Spain via its website and local apps, according to a social media account run by the company.
The Shopee Spain account on Instagram carried a post on Friday that said Singapore-headquartered company would offer free shipping in the European nation.
A source at Sea confirmed to Reuters that the Instagram account was authentic without elaborating. The person declined to be identified as they were not authorized to speak to the media.
A localized Shopee website has not yet been launched.
Sea Ltd, with a market capitalization of $179 billion on Friday, is expanding its e-commerce operation globally. It launched in Poland in September, has ramped up activities in Latin America, and is planning a launch in India.
