Shop, Sell and Be Entertained on TikTok Shop in the Philippines

Leading short-form video platform, TikTok, recently launched its online marketplace, TikTok Shop, in the Philippines. Through this brand new e-commerce platform, TikTok Shop aims to open up more business opportunities not only for brands, but also for small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). All these, whilst providing a fresh new shopping experience for users and opportunities for local content creators alike.

TikTok Shop products can be purchased through product anchors embedded in short videos, live streams, and the TikTok Product Showcase tab of a merchant's TikTok page, making it easy for users to be entertained and yet shop at the same time. 

At TikTok Shop in the Philippines, affordable and unique items are on offer locally, even those hard-to-find must-haves. TikTok users can purchase items from various categories of products including fashion, home&living, beauty and personal care. They can enjoy shopping from favorite brands such as realme, Unilove, Perysmith and Kily.phonline 

During June 15 to 21, TikTok Shop held its maiden mid-year sale in the Philippines, highlighted by super deals and users enjoyed up to 70% discounts, subsidised shipping and first-time buyers received coupons and discounts. For shipments to the Luzon region, there were shipping vouchers of up to PhP 150 off with a PhP 10 minimum spend. For shipments outside Luzon, there were shipping vouchers of up to PhP 150 off with a PhP 50 minimum spend.


Celebrities and top content creators joined the very first sale, including top actress Glaiza De Castro, TV host Macoy Dubs, and top creator Alfea, who did key live sessions and short video posts via TikTok Shop. 

The week-long mid-year sales campaign saw TikTok Shop Philippines gain a 33% growth in its daily gross merchandise value (GMV). The e-commerce platform's number of daily orders likewise jumped by 29%, while the volume of livestream climbed 36% compared to the previous week (June 8 to 14).

Top products bought and sold during the mid-year sale were air fryers, high-waist skinny jeans for women, water bottles and colortint make up. Top brands were Gaabor, KILY.PH and Uni-Love. The top creators includes HaroldBalilo, Kntxyrl, Nina Cabrera, actress Glaiza De Castro. 

Kimberly Duyag, CEO of the well-known local cloth and garment brand KILY.PH, shared her experience, "We created more than PhP 5 million sales during the first mid-year sales campaign, and we just began to do livestream on a daily basis one month ago. Many sellers have been surprised by the platform's support, especially the free shipping vouchers and discount promotion. Plus it also enables merchants, brands and creators showcase and sell their products directly on TikTok via feed, content or livestream."

The creator Harold Balilo achieved more than 500% GMV growth in one single live session compared with his best live before the campaign.  "I started on TikTok Shop in late April. It’s my very first time doing live selling. I’m so thankful and happy as a student and as a small creator looking for a part-time job as a live streaming creator. I can say that TikTok Shop has changed my life and offered huge help for me and my family," said creator Harold Balilo.

TikTok furthers safety efforts in the Philippines, launches brand new Brand Safety Center

With billions of videos shared and viewed across the platform, Tiktok acknowledges the responsibility of ensuring that everyone feels safe. With this in mind, Tiktok introduces the launch of the all-new Brand Safety Center, a resource page designed to showcase their efforts and commitment to becoming the safest, most trusted entertainment platform for people and brands across Southeast Asia and the rest of the world.

Brand Safety Center: The grand tour
The Brand Safety Center will serve as a central hub for all insights, articles, partnerships and other information related to brand safety and transparency at TikTok. The site is divided into six major sections.

1. Our Mission
2. Latest Announcements
3. Partnerships & Certifications
4. Transparency
5. Success Stories
6. Watch & Learn

A look back at 2021

The Brand Safety Center reflects all of Tiktok's recent developments in the area of brand safety, so looking back at the past year to revisit some of the major milestones that helped make the Brand Safety Center a reality for TikTok and its advertisers is worth doing. Everything Tiktok does is underpinned by four brand safety pillars, which guide them in their ongoing efforts to make TikTok the most trusted entertainment platform for brands.

Pillar #1: Keeping our community safe
TikTok’s dedication to community safety includes an array of updated policies, products and initiatives that reflect our ongoing dedication to the safety of the TikTok community. These efforts include: age appropriate privacy and safety settings, tools to promote kindness and combat bullying, curbing the spread of misinformation, and proactive campaigns to promote awareness around online bullying.

Pillar #2: Building brand-safe solutions
We also expanded our offerings to advertisers that help ensure branded content shows up next to safe and suitable user videos. We now offer leading brand safety solutions for advertisers on TikTok: the TikTok Inventory Filter, and a post-bid solution from Zefr for all Southeast Asia markets including Indonesia, Vietnam, Phillippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and pre-bid solutions from OpenSlate in Indonesia.
Pillar #3: Championing transparency & accountability
We strive to be the most transparent and accountable company in the industry with deeper insights into our operations in Southeast Asia and the rest of the world. To keep our community informed about the steps we take to keep our community safe, we launched our first two quarterly Community Guidelines Enforcement Reports earlier in 2021 and updates to our community guidelines just this year. These reports bring visibility to the content and accounts removed for violating our Community Guidelines, as well as insights into the volume of fake activity we stopped or removed in our effort to preserve authenticity on TikTok.
We also announced the establishment of a new physical Transparency and Accountability Center in Ireland, adding to existing centers in Los Angeles and Washington DC, where we continue to host virtual tours. Finally, we revamped the Transparency Center on the TikTok website to keep our community informed of our efforts in the space.

Pillar #4: Partnering for progress
TikTok has always been a community, so we understand the value of partnerships. Partnerships help inform our own operations and push the industry forward for the greater good of the digital ecosystem. In 2021, we expanded and deepened our partnerships on TikTok, including:
Looking forward: Where we go from here
The launch of the new Brand Safety Center is just the latest step in our ongoing journey to become the world’s safest platform for brands and their customers.
Over the next year, you can expect to see TikTok:
  • Expand our partnerships and solutions into new markets
  • Work alongside industry groups to set definitions and standards for critical brand safety issues, such as misinformation and ad adjacency.
  • Support TikTok creators and brands working together to tell their stories in authentic and safe ways.
  • Enable small and medium-sized businesses to make informed decisions to keep their brands safe.
  • Adapt and expand our solutions to match new product innovations.
There is no final destination to reach when it comes to brand safety. TikTok will continue to adapt to any changes both online and offline. We will continue to work alongside the industry to tackle complex challenges. We will continue to expand our expertise through partnerships with experts and third parties. This is an exciting time in the development of our platform that brings entertainment, creativity and joy to more than a billion people around the world and we are excited for you to join us on our journey.

dost tiktok partnership

Filipino TikTok users will now learn more Filipino scientific achievements and developments as the Department of Science and Technology Research and Development – Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD) partnered with TikTok to boost promotion of Filipino-made technologies. 

DOST-PCIEERD had signed a memorandum of understanding with Tiktok to promote Filipino technologies through its science communication Tiktok account @pinoyscience. The collaboration is a big boost for the scientific community as it continues to reach out to Filipino netizens and garner support to innovations developed by Filipino researchers. 

"Communicating science to the public has always been a challenge for our researchers. As a leader and partner in enabling innovations, we are excited with this collaboration with TikTok as a new avenue for us to share distinctly pinoy innovations through this social media platform," he said. 

 DOST-PCIEERD's account on TikTok

This partnership with TikTok is a six-month collaboration where TikTok will be providing training for researchers on how to use the platform for science communication, promotion of Filipino technologies, and conduct contests for the Filipino TikTok community.  

The first contest is through the #PinoyInnovator hashtag challenge which intends to show how creative and resourceful Filipinos are. Through this challenge, common household items will be creatively used to develop a nifty innovation. The winners of the challenge will be hailed as the "Pinoy Science Innovator 2021." They will be announced in April 2021.

Another contest that will be launched is the #PinoyScience hashtag challenge which challenges TikTok users to explain the science behind DOST PCIEERD's supported scientific projects. 

The #PinoyScience hashtag challenge will run from April to July 2021. Three winners will be announced every month starting May 2021. 

"We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with the DOST PCIEERD to help promote awareness and understanding for science and innovation, as well as inspire the Filipino youth to discover their creativity and talents. Inspiring creativity and bringing joy is at the heart of what we do at TikTok," said Kristoffer Rada, TikTok Head for Public Policy. 

"TikTok is committed to helping facilitate education and learning in the Philippines. Through our #LearnOnTikTok series, we will be working with creators to produce more educational content on the platform," he added.
