Shopee, an online shopping platform from Singapore, is making its debut in Europe, according to Ecommerce News. The company is part of Sea, whose gaming arm Garena is already active in Europe.

As Shopee is preparing to open its e-commerce website in Poland, the company is currently recruiting sellers, sources told Reuters. It will be the first expansion into European e-commerce for the tech group from Singapore.

Earlier this year, the company launched websites in Latin America and now preparing to launch in India as well. Besides, it aims to launch in Argentina in the coming months.

Shopee is part of Sea, a major e-commerce player in Southeast Asia. It generated over €1 billion globally in revenue for the most recent quarter.

The news was first published by Polish news website Wiadomoscihandlowe.pl, who learned from online sellers that they have been receiving phone calls from the Asian company with a proposal for cooperation that would start in August. It’s said Shopee has also signed supply contract with DPD, an international parcel delivery service, and InPost, a parcel lockers network.
