Earn As You Shop - Get The Most Bang For Your Ringgit When You Shop Via Getex Malaysia

Thanks to the Internet, the way we shop has changed. No crowds, no traffic jams, no waiting time or finding for parking, no need to visit more shops just to compare prices, the convenience we have unlocked with e-commerce is manifolds. 

In fact, my family+friends and business associates always asked me which shopping website that I checked-in hours (can be addictive to shopping online sometimes) for shopping and have been calling me to give them the links as soon as I can so they can buy the same brand of the handbags I've just bought and shared with them. For those who are doing business, they needed to know so they can advertise their products online too.

While the current economic situation and the ringgit are in a sorry state, people are becoming more and more cost conscious. Every ringgit spent is a well thought out one; in fact it is stretched to the maximum.

According to Trading Economics, based on a report by the Department of Statistic Malaysia, consumer spending in Malaysia decreased to RM134,900 million in the second quarter of 2015 from RM135,507million in the first quarter of 2015.

Haha...I totally agreed, believed with the statistic given above because I'm also one of the contributor and supporter of online shopping now. Nowadays, even my mom+sisters and I bought the same brand of handbags that we chose together through online shopping. I paid them back in cash, easier and faster too. 

How then do we combine the miracle of the Internet and the need to be smart consumers in a trying economic environment?

Getex Malaysia has just the answer for you with its online CASHBACK platform, where fellow Malaysians can earn some extra bucks whilst shopping. Buvaneswaren Naidu, Getex Malaysia Chief Operation Officer says: “Getex Malaysia is created to help the consumer spend smartly. With this platform, we put the purchasing power back to the hands of the shoppers and let them stretch the money they spend. And better still, earn a portion of the money spent going back to shoppers when they make qualifying purchases from eligible retailers, on top of the promotions or discounts that are already being offered. Talk about empowering consumers again."

“Consumers may be familiar with rebates and coupons, but the term cashback is still quite new here in Malaysia as compared to overseas markets like the US. With the current economic conundrum happening to all of us, we as a consumer ourselves, do feel the pinch. So, we thought why not bring the same concept here. A win win situation for all – shoppers and retailers.”

Operating since June 2015, Getex Malaysia offers shoppers cashback up to 12% (varies by stores) from more than 50 online retailers. To enjoy the cashback benefit, customers just need to register typically by providing an email address and creating a password. 

Any time you want to shop, sign in and then click on a store from the site’s list of retail partners. If you buy something, the retailer pays Getex Malaysia a commission. The site then shares a percentage of that commission, in the form of cashback, with the shoppers. To date, Getex Malaysia has almost 1,500 subscribers with 30% of it being active users.
