Video explains damaged goods: internet

"Now I know why sometimes my parcel is damage lor..", @Tan.AB wrote in the caption.

Displeased TikTok users in the comments section agreed with @Tan.AB, saying that the video explained why they tended to receive damaged goods from online shopping.

Some called for Shopee to take action.

Others said they will stop buying from Shopee.

However, @Tan.AB opined in a follow-up video that people should not withdraw support for Shopee as that would hurt the sellers.

"Support the sellers as they are also paying for the delivery", @Tan.AB wrote in the video.

Instead of withdrawing support for the platform and "villainising" the sellers on Shopee, @Tan.AB suggested that consumers should "remind Shopee to engage the right contractors".

“We have since reached out to our partners to reiterate that all personnel must adhere to our stringent delivery guidelines and service standards, and ensure necessary action is taken to ensure that the utmost care is taken for our customers’ packages”, the spokesperson added.
