Mabuhay Pilipinas!

In the 3rd quarter of 2016, Indonesia-based company and Asia’s first cashback app, Snapcart, boosted its global presence through Southeast Asia’s second biggest market, the Philippines. This move is not just merely an expansion to the company’s visibility but rather a more strategic one, which as it has been in the works even before its launch late 2015 in Indonesia.

Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together.  

— James Cash Penney, founder of JC Penney

The decision for an expansion in the Philippines is also a calculated one. Explaining the rationale behind the move, Reynazran Royono, CEO and co-founder of Snapcart says, “It makes a lot of sense. Philippines as a country has a similar trade structure with Indonesia, where traditional trade contributes more than 50% of purchases in the market. Our Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology does not require adjustments since alphabet is used by both countries. That is why we prioritize Philippines as our second country to launch Snapcart.”

Snapcart’s CDO and co-founder, Teresa Mayeth Condicion, explains, “Philippines is the next perfect market for Snapcart.  It is the biggest market after Indonesia in Southeast Asia and there is even a higher need for market data as many large retailers don’t share information.” Teresa then adds, “also, smartphone market growth in the Philippines is one of the fastest in the region with the numbers almost doubling every two to three years.”

Launching in the Philippines proves to be the right move as within two weeks after the launch, Snapcart was able to acquire over 10,000 downloads and registered users. Despite the great start, expectations are still being set on high standards. “We want to match if not surpass the great results we achieved in Indonesia of half a million downloads in 6-8 months.  This will give us a strong competitive advantage in the Philippines and will demonstrate scalability of our business model as we gear up for expansion to the rest of Southeast Asia next year,” explains Teresa. “Launching in the Philippines establishes Snapcart as a regional company. This is the expectation of our clients, as well as realizing our goal to be the dominant real-time analytics company in Asia,” Rey adds.

All in all, the company is aiming to get 50,000 users in the country within the next three months  while also coming up with more cashback items as well as updates for the bonus features where users can get more benefits.

    Some of the receipts were rejected even if the picture taken was clear and will inform you it was blurry. Is the people validating the receipt blind or they’re just in a hurry to validate it? So giddy to try but not happy of the services at all. I wish I never started this app!

        IS THAT ALL YOU CAN DO SNAPCART? THAT’S STUPID! YOU COULD NOT EVEN PROVIDE ACTION OR TICKET NUMBER TO RESOLVE YOUR INCOMPETENCE!!!

  • Prue Halliwell-Carreon

    I just started a couple of weeks ago and wanted to check for myself if this works esp if i can cash out once I am eligible to cash out. A simple top up for prepaid phone is acceptable as long as there is actual ‘rebate’. I shall update you soon

    • Snapcart

      Hi Prue,

      Thank you for using Snapcart!

      Our cashout option currently are Zalora voucher, Bank Transfer and Top Up Phone Credit.

      Keep snapping for more cashback!

      Regards,

  • John Lephargy Gellena

    VERY BAD SERVICE 🙁 I don’t even think anyone would waste time on this. Keeps rejecting receipts with no valid reason. Unable to cash out too. I think this app is just plain bullcrap. DO NOT INSTALL. DO NOT PROVIDE CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.
