Shopee did not respond to a request for comment from Dealstreetasia.
According to two sources familiar with the matter, more than half of the Shop Payment and Food Delivery team workers are being laid off in Thailand.

In the first quarter of 2022 (January-March), the annual revenue of Sea Group increased by 74.4% and reached ০ 2.9 billion. At the same time, the company’s overall profit rose 81.3% to 1.20 billion dollars. In the face of growth, the shop has faced several obstacles in the macroeconomy.
