Why are we introducing Friends Deal?
Humans have always been social creatures. With social networks and platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat becoming more and more commonplace, people are now able to be constantly connected to their network of friends.
The traditional ways of shopping meant you could join your friends to shop together, share the good deals and joys of shopping together. However, online shopping has always been a single person activity where social interaction is kept to a minimum.
That is also the reason why we, at ezbuy, decided to introduce a channel called Friends Deal as we aim to bring a social element to online shopping and help consumers save money – simply by tapping on the power of their social network.
Benjamin Lim, Local Acquisitions Head at ezbuy, shared his observation that, “Currently, in the retail scene, you don’t see consumers having access to goods at wholesale prices.”
He added that wholesale pricing was always exclusive only to retailers and companies buying product stocks in huge quantities, and that the only time consumers get to enjoy wholesale prices is during off-season clearance or limited time period warehouse sales events.
What is Friends Deal?
Products featured on our Friends Deal channel are available for purchase based on the concept where you would start a deal by making payment to reserve it, share with your friends who might be interested in enjoying the same discounted price and when enough people join, the Friends Deal is secured and everyone will get to enjoy the discounted price.
What Are The Types of Products Available for Friends Deal?
Our team at ezbuy has negotiated with merchants globally for the best prices for the Friends Deal products. Customers will get to access up to 50 active deals daily. Each deal offers the best price, secured from merchants based in USA, Korea, Taiwan, China, Malaysia and Singapore.
