TikTok Shop Closed for 2 Months, Which E-commerce Consumers Turn to?

There is an interesting issue in terms of online business this year, namely TikTok Shop which was closed for two months. Meanwhile, in terms of sales strategy, live shopping features and affiliate links are still in demand.

Jakpat conducted a survey to find out the behavior and habits of Indonesians who like to shop online in the second half of 2023. The report, which involved 1509 respondents, also looked at how shopping platforms are used in e-commerce and quick-commerce as well as sales strategies, especially live shopping and affiliate links.

The survey results stated that 88% of respondents made online transactions in the second half of 2023. As many as 43% of e-commerce users like to shop online at 18.01-21.00 WIB, while quick-commerce users at 09.01-12.00 WIB with a percentage of 46%.


Online shopping payments

Digital wallets (e-wallets) are the most widely used payment method by e-commerce buyers (73%). Furthermore, there is cash on delivery (COD) and mobile/internet banking systems with 58% and 42% respectively. This trend also applies to quick-commerce payments with e-wallet percentages of 76%, COD 50%, and mobile/internet banking 48%.

The amount of e-commerce users spending is almost twice of quick-commerce users. The average shopping expenditure in e-commerce per month is Rp429,509 while in quick-commerce is Rp227,222.


Live shopping & affiliate link
Live shopping and affiliate links are two familiar online sales strategies. As many as 87% of respondents claimed to have watched live shopping and 77% of them made transactions via the feature.

Head of Research Jakpat, Aska Primardi, assessed that the live shopping model does provide a new and unique experience for consumers. It makes sense that consumers interested in live shopping in semester 2 will increase compared to semester 1 2023*.

“It’s not surprising that they are interested in this experience. Although this live shopping option will not replace 100% of online commerce transactions in e-commerce,” he said.

Meanwhile, 4 out of 5 online shoppers have opened affiliate links from social media and 70% of them decided to buy the product.


When TikTok Shop vacuum
In the second half of 2023, TikTok Shop was closed on October 4, 2023 due to the policy of banning social commerce services based on Minister of Trade Regulation Number 31 of 2023. However, this shopping service will reopen on December 12, 2023 by cooperating with Tokopedia.

The temporary closure was quite influential. The percentage of Tiktok Shop users decreased from 22% to 17% compared to the previous semester. This contrasts with Lazada users who rose 6% from 26% to 32%.

Meanwhile, the percentage of users of two other e-commerce, namely Shopee and Tokopedia, has not changed with 76% and 38% respectively throughout 2023.

“With the vacuum of TikTok Shop in the middle of semester 2, shoppers try to find the same experience through other platforms. From here, you can see Shopee Live which has increased for live shopping. This is reasonable considering that overall, the most popular e-commerce platform is still Shopee,” said Aska.

Live Shopping & Affiliate Link: Blurring The Line Between E-Commerce and Entertainment

Indonesian consumers are drawn to the effortless purchasing experience provided by e-commerce platforms as the digital landscape develops.

Jakpat conducts surveys annually to understand this trend. In the first semester of 2023, Jakpat surveyed 1,485 people on the trends in using e-commerce as a shopping medium. The study was carried out between February and May 2023 to understand people’s behavior when purchasing online, how they use e-commerce, and what marketing tactics work best, used by vendors on the platform as well as e-commerce sites.

Jakpat report shows, 88% of online shoppers made purchases during the first semester of 2023. E-wallets or digital wallets are the preferred method of payment when conducting e-commerce transactions, chosen by 72% of respondents who had already made a purchase.

This is in line with what was conveyed by Aska Primardi, Head of Research of Jakpat, “The convenience, speed, and credibility of sellers makes online shopping activities still attractive to the people of Indonesia. These values ​​seem to be able to replace the discount value, which has apparently started to decline during the past year. This value is currently seen as the majority of e-commerce’s bare minimum service standard.”

The Phenomena Called Live Shopping & Affiliate Link

Live shopping has emerged as an engaging evolution of the online shopping experience, seamlessly combining the participatory element of social media platforms with the appeal of retail therapy. Jakpat reports, 9 out of 10 online shoppers have visited a live shopping broadcast.

Live shopping broadcasts are hosted by brands or influencers that showcase items and interact directly with viewers despite their location. This personal interaction gives customers a direct line of communication to ask questions, get answers, and learn more about products. Passive scrolling seems to have transformed into a social event, thanks to the live format. On the other hand, the combination of social media and live shopping creates a sense of exclusivity and urgency.

Responding to this phenomenon, Aska stated, “Consumers seek unique value from their shopping experience, and live shopping is one of the examples. Real-time shopping in limited time, spontaneous interaction with the seller and other shoppers, surprises from the host, and the perception as if they are competing for limited stock, will make a consumer become a loyal shopper.”

On the other hand, Jakpat highlights the existence of  affiliate links in online shopping. Serves as a powerful conduit between consumers and products, affiliate links promote a mutually beneficial relationship for both shoppers and content creators. These links, which are frequently included in social media posts or review websites, enable influencers or affiliates to recommend particular products to their audience. This symbiotic relationship between e-commerce, sellers, and content creators, promotes honest product endorsements and gives consumers more control over their buying experiences. Jakpat report reveal that 8 out of 10 online shoppers have clicked the affiliate link in social media, and more than half decided to buy from the link.
