Kuala Lumpur, 17th February 2017 – Ahead of its second year anniversary, ShopBack Malaysia recently announced Uber will be part of its merchant network, adding to the list of over 500 online stores including Lazada, ZALORA, Expedia, Booking.com and Foodpanda

The strategic tie-up will now see Uber riders earning Cashback for every ride booked via the ShopBack mobile app.

Additionally, users can now also earn Cashback when buying mobile reloads from major telcos (Hotlink, Digi, U Mobile, Celcom and Tune Talk), as well as bus and train tickets via Easybook, CatchThatBus and Bus Online Ticket.

The addition of these services is in line with ShopBack’s mission of creating a world of smarter shoppers as they have quickly become South-East Asia’s numbr one online loyalty platform. Consumers can not only earn Cashback on Uber rides, but will also be rewarded whenever they shop via ShopBack.

“As a startup, and to be around in this competitive environment for 2 years is a proud achievement for the ShopBack team.

“The support we have gathered from our customers and merchants has been tremendous, and the experience of working with some of the biggest merchants and brands in the world has indeed been a great learning curve for all of us,” Sharmeen Looi, Chief Operating Officer of ShopBack Malaysia, said.

Continuing to push boundaries to deliver better user experiences for its customers in an increasingly mobile-first market, ShopBack’s mobile app is one of the firsts in South-East Asia to integrate seamlessly with Uber.

ShopBack Malaysia 2 Years In

“Since day one, we wanted to empower shoppers to shop smarter. This partnership with Uber and the addition of services on our mobile app enables that to happen as we continue to identify more opportunities for our consumers to earn Cashback more conveniently through ShopBack, and transfer it into their bank accounts as real cash.”

Sharmeen said to date, ShopBack has given out over RM13.5 million in Cashback to its users.

“Although some see it as dollars and cents, we think we have helped add value by enabling customers to enjoy those savings elsewhere, contributing to a better quality of life.”
