Temu is one of the many sites where you can do some online shopping at affordable prices. This online marketplace belongs to the Chinese company PDD Holdings and was founded in Boston, Massachusetts, in 2022. The Temu platform was launched first in the United States on that same year and spread quite fast to other markets, such as Australia and New Zealand, then some countries in Europe, followed by Latin America and Africa.

The app gained surprising popularity after the company displayed a commercial during the 2023 Superbowl. In a nutshell, Temu is an e-commerce platform where users from all over the world can purchase goods produced mainly in China.

Temu's affordable prices

On the Temu app, users can find goods at really low prices. Like, really low. So, the question that comes up the most is: how can they afford those prices? According to the company, the prices offered on their website are cheap because they provide the products directly from the manufacturer, without third-party intermediaries. The main claim behind Temu's prices is that it allows Chinese vendors to sell and ship their products directly to buyers from the US and all over the world, without a middleman. There have been, however, several concerns regarding the ethics and prices behind this business model.

Temu vs. Shein

Shein is one of the most popular apps when it comes to buying Chinese products at affordable prices, and Temu is one of their most recent competitors. One of the main differences between the two companies is that Temu is an online platform where third-party suppliers sell their products. On Shein, however, most of the products in the clothes, fashion, and accessories section are sold by Shein. They do have third-party sellers as well, who sell their products along with products sold by Shein. Moreover, although both apps offer a wide variety of products, Shein's strong suit is fashion.
