When e-commerce first took off in the region five years ago, merchants were following a standard formula which would lead to reasonable success: build a simple e-commerce website, upload basic products information such as images and prices, throw in some sort of digital marketing, and observe as consumers made their way along the buying journey.
Things are much different nowadays. In this matured, booming e-commerce market, merchants are increasingly finding ways to rise above the crowd by providing a seamless, simple experience for the modern omnichannel shoppers. Modern consumers expect to be delighted by technology at every micro-moments – to have magic brought to even life’s most mundane tasks.
Advancement in technology and shifts in consumer behavior have changed the path to success. Despite this change, e-commerce market still remains as one of the biggest industry in the region today.
A Singapore start-up, ShopBack was founded to tap into South East Asia’s huge e-commerce market – Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines. The start-up offers special incentives to online shoppers, by providing them cashback or vouchers when they shop at over 300+ online stores.

Better Online Shopping Experience
Earning points and rewards are not new to the everyday consumers. Credit card companies are one of the few companies that have successfully introduced rewards system that are pushing consumers to spend more while saving more. In most cases, cashback rewards programs are often more useful and attractive for most consumers as they are also often simpler.
The Internet has made the purchasing of goods even easier and certainly in some cases cheaper. In fact, when it comes to shopping online there are thousands of websites from which shoppers can buy a variety of goods from.
ShopBack works with merchants like Apple and Taobao Singapore, to provide their community unlimited savings at their favorite stores. The start-up shares rewards with their community by referring customers to them. Rewards, in this case, come in the form of cashback. It literally means “getting cash back,” when shoppers purchase online via ShopBack.
It is just a simple and obvious benefit for shoppers to use them, simply because they can stretch their dollar for their online shopping spree.
ShopBack Is Easy to Use
Most web application or mobile application can often be cluttered and complicated, featuring a multitude of features and functions that might never be used. However, ShopBack is being built to emphasize on simplicity, usability and optimizing the user experience (UX).

- Sit back, relax and wait for for the cashback to be transferred to the desired PayPal or bank account.
Moreover, ShopBack has worked with banks to give their users more options to cash out their rewards:

Who is Lazada?
Lazada is an online shopping & selling platform in Southeast Asia that features more than 2,500 brands, serving 560 million consumers across Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Founded in 2012 by Rocket Internet, the e-commerce company aims to establish an Amazon.com business model within the region. They aim to achieve this by taking advantage of the untapped online consumer market and Amazon’s weak presence here.
In recent years, Lazada has grown to be a force not to reckon with as they get acquired by China’s Alibaba in 2016 as Alibaba expands into Southeast Asia with a US$1 billion Lazada deal. Subsequently, Alibaba also boosted its stake to 83 percent in 2017 with an additional investment of US$1 billion. Then, further investment of extra US$2 billion and tapping a top executive (Ms. Lucy Peng) to run the business. This move strengthened Alibaba’s vision of taking on rivals such as tech giant Amazon in the region. The latest funding will double Alibaba’s total investment in Lazada at US$4 billion which it said will “accelerate the growth plans” and help further tie the Lazada business into Alibaba’s core e-commerce service.
Lazada and Razer also announced this month the launch of a new digital game store on the online shopping platform, offering consumers access to thousands of digital games as well as reward customers with every purchase.
Gamevice – Making Your Phone A Portable Gaming Powerhouse
The mobile gaming market is growing and will expect to grow even further. With the improvement in technology, mobile devices are one of the most powerful handheld game systems you can buy today. They are capable of displaying rich details and bringing world-class gaming experience that outstrips what you can find on a Nintendo 3DS or PlayStation Vita.
With the growth of mobile gaming market, publishers are increasingly willing to develop more game titles for the eager players. Along with this, players are also progressively hungrier and more demanding for a better gaming experience. And they want the mobile gaming market to bridge the gap between them and the mainstream gaming market. But mobile devices are missing a critical aspect that a lot of gamers still crave: a physical gamepad with buttons and joysticks.
Gamevice is a holster that the mobile device snaps into, covering the left and right sides of its chassis. It is the next big thing that can easily transform your mobile devices into handheld gaming consoles. Rather than sliding your fingers across a glass surface, or swinging your phone around to steer a vehicle, you get a D-pad, buttons, analog sticks, and triggers, just like any controller on a gaming console.
