The 30-second ad premiered during the prime-time broadcast of the Super Bowl on Feb. 12, the most-watched television event in the U.S. Showcasing a young woman’s shopping adventure as she browses through the attractively priced items on Temu’s app, the commercial was uploaded to YouTube the following day.

Based in Boston, Temu means “Team Up, Price Down,” reflecting its strategy of offering wholesale-like prices to consumers by leveraging economies of scale. The company achieves cost savings by primarily sourcing from a worldwide roster of leading manufacturers and suppliers. Temu also helps them to better understand consumer preferences, improve demand forecasting and product development, and eliminate unnecessary markups and intermediaries.

The combination of quality and low prices has resonated with consumers, propelling the app to the No. 1 spot in the overall category in the App Store for Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the U.K., and the U.S., according to data analytics firm Google Play recently named Temu an Editor’s Choice, an esteemed distinction awarded to apps and games that demonstrate exceptional quality, innovation, and design.

After initially expanding into Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, Temu has recently entered the European market, serving the U.K., the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. The app is now available in 10 countries with a combined population of more than 500 million people.

While Temu was quickly gaining a following among discerning shoppers seeking quality bargains, the Super Bowl broadcast of the “Shop Like a Billionaire” ad elevated public awareness of the emerging e-commerce platform to new heights.

As of early May, the ad had accumulated a total of 128 million views on YouTube. In contrast, “Forever” by The Farmer’s Dog, the No. 1 Super Bowl ad according to the widely followed USA Today Ad Meter, garnered fewer than 2 million views on YouTube.

Temu helps households stretch their budgets

Industry experts attribute Temu’s popularity to its affordable prices on everyday items. With six in 10 Americans living paycheck to paycheck amid soaring inflation and rising interest rates, an increasing number of households are seeking ways to stretch their budgets.

“Temu’s extensive selection of low-priced products, ranging from clothing to electronics to home decor, has found mass appeal in the U.S. market,” said Seema Shah, senior director of investor research at Sensor Tower.

“Shopping apps like Temu offer incredible in-app deals for consumers, which are more relevant than ever as macroeconomic conditions become increasingly constrained in the face of rising inflation.”
