class ShopeeProduct(models.Model):
    _inherit = 'product.product'

    shopee_variation_id = fields.Char(string='Shopee Variation ID')

class ShopeeProductTemplate(models.Model):
    _inherit = 'product.template'

    shopee_product_id = fields.Char(string='Shopee Product ID')

Tree view:

<record model="ir.ui.view" id="view_shopee_variantions_tree_inherit">
    <field name="name">product.product.tree.inherit</field>
    <field name="model">product.product</field>
    <field name="inherit_id" ref="product.product_product_tree_view"/>
    <field name="arch" type="xml">
        <xpath expr="//tree//field[@name='uom_id']" position="after">
            <field name="shopee_variation_id"/>

Form view:

 <record model="ir.ui.view" id="view_product_form_shopee_inherit">
    <field name="name">product.template.common.form.shopee.inherit</field>
    <field name="model">product.template</field>
    <field name="inherit_id" ref="product.product_template_only_form_view"/>
