Summary
PricePanda, the leading price comparison website in South-East Asia, today launches its App in Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia and Singapore. PricePanda’s App is available for all Android phones. With their new app, PricePanda enables their users to find the best offers for several thousand products and electronic gadgets on the go.

M-Commerce is exploding in South East Asia – the number of users who access the internet via their phones is growing rapidly and leapfrogging the traditional desktop users. According to Nielsen’s report "Decoding the Asian Mobile Consumer" markets such as Singapore (87%) or Malaysia (80%) already have higher smartphone penetration rates than for instance the German smartphone market (62%). In South East Asia alone, smartphone owners spent an average of more than three hours per day on their smartphones. As this growth gains momentum, mobile commerce will play an increasingly critical role in shaping the future of retail in Asia.

The free PricePanda App in brief:

  • Compare prices for thousands of products to find the best deal on the go
  • Visit the shop’s website or call them directly from within the app
  • Search for offers by entering the product name
  • Discover top products and swipe through them
  • Browse through dozens categories and find new products

Christian Schiller, Global CEO of PricePanda: “With our Android app we react to our customers’ request for a quick and easy-to-use price comparison app. We are seeing signs of huge opportunity for mobile shopping in South East Asia, where in many countries such as in Malaysia or in Singapore M-Commerce is already a developed habit. With an increase of 61% in smartphone sales in the last years in South East Asia, the M-Commerce wave is quickly catching on all markets we operate in. It is certain that M-Commerce will play a key role in shaping the future of retail in Asia. With Android owning the largest user base we see an enormous opportunity for PricePanda supporting the M-Commerce movement with a valuable app.”
