There are tons of shopping apps available in the App Store or Android Market. MobiSinga, an app created by a team of local developers, is joining the party, but with a few added features.
Besides the usual routine of highlighting deals and promotions from merchants near your current location, users can also vote for a certain product to be brought in by the retailer. And if there are new deals found within your location, push notifications will alert you to these new developments. Users can also collect stamps for their purchases, and redeem it with the corresponding retailer to receive more freebies. Another feature named Raffle acts as a lucky draw for customers to try their luck at winning prizes put up by vendors.
Smartphone users aside, MobiSinga is also targeted at merchants, from the small-medium businesses to larger corporations. Vendors have the freedom to customize their deals and add more functions such as coupons on the MobiSinga app to entice customers to their stores. As of now, companies such as Watson’s, 77th Street, Beyond Beauty, 7-Eleven and Pure Fitness have signed on with the service, with more to come over the next few months.
Vendors who are interested to sign up for the service and feature can do so at http://www.mobisinga.com/pricing.html. The standard package, priced at S$0.99 per day, also comes with a free 30 days trial. Merchants who wish to add more features such as linking their web ad within the MobiSinga app or allowing the app to share their deals throw social networks will have to pay S$1.99 per day.
