SINGAPORE, Oct. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Qoo10 Singapore, Asia's leading online marketplace, will be having an event - 'Qoo10 10.10 Shopping Evolution' at Plaza Singapura, Level 1 Atrium from 9th to 15thOctober 2017 (10am to 10pm). The event aims to feature Qoo10's marketplace features, showcasing its strong base of merchants and marketplace functions such as Qoo10's Live10 app, MameGo! Game for Qoo10 users and more importantly Qpay, Qoo10's recently launched integrated cashless payment system. More than 20 Qoo10 merchants, consisting of brands like Parisilk, Spigen, and small & medium enterprises (SMEs) such as MiniHelpersSG and Passion Gadgets will be having booths, featuring plenty of tech gadgets in the market, including smartphones, computers, gaming consoles, and branded home electronics to name a few.
Singapore's recent sales data shows signs of recovery, but weak retail sentiment still persists. The Retail Sales Index (RSI) indicated that although retail sales in July 2017 went up 1.8 per cent year on year, there were other lacklustre indicators in the first half of 2017. As a way to move forward amid the slumping retail sector, Qoo10's strategy is to synergise offline and online retailers together, and not to cannibalise each other.
'Qoo10 10.10 Shopping Evolution' event aims to further help merchants, especially small business owners tap into a larger target audience online, bridging the online-to-offline (O2O) gap.
"As the number one e-commerce platform in Singapore, Qoo10 has the necessary services and functions such as Qpay, which also serves as an advertising model and a bridge to connect retailers between online and offline retailing. Having this event will also further strengthen the popularity of our services, driving traffic to both our online and offline merchants," says HyunWook Cho, Country Manager of Qoo10 Singapore.
Qpay -- Qoo10's Integrated Cashless Payment System
Unlike a typical payment gateway, Qpay empowers merchants with a payment platform option -- reaching their potential customers through Qoo10 as an advertising channel, driving footfall to their stores. Small business owners, specifically those which are unable to sustain or keep up to the ever changing digital age can now be at ease, adopting this seamless model for their payment transactions and an advertising platform at the same time. The system is integrated in the Qoo10 payment platform and extends to the discounts and loyalty rewards on individuals' Qoo10 accounts which are applicable upon checking out. At the 'Qoo10 10.10 Shopping Evolution', visitors will be able to visit merchants' booths and purchase the items through Qpay.
Daily Giveaways and On-Stage Prizes
There will be giveaways at different times of the day, everyday throughout the event. Giveaways include Qoo10 gift cards, smartphones, electric scooters, gaming consoles, laptops, home & living gadget, and much more. These giveaways come from popular brands such as ASUS, GoPro, Lenovo, Phillips, and OPPO.
Catch 10.10 Brandmons using Live10 App
Visitors can also play Qoo10's MameGo! game by catching brandmons during the event to redeem free gifts.
