PricePanda launches iOS App

08 NOVEMBER 2013
Summary
November 8th 2013 – PricePanda, the leading price comparison website in South-East Asia, today launches its iOS app in Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia and Singapore. Only a few weeks ago the company already introduced its app for Android. With their new app, PricePanda’s broad selection of prices and products in various categories such as Computers, Health and Beauty or Home Appliances is just a few clicks away. Now, online shopping in South East Asia becomes even easier and totally flexible.

M-Commerce is exploding in South East Asia – the number of users who access the internet via their phones is increasing 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 US smartphone market (60%). 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.

Louis Iskandar, co-founder at PricePanda: “We are delighted to offer our app for both iOS and Android devices in South East Asia from now onwards. M-commerce is not just an additional channel for us, but is also an entry point to gaining many more customers with our quick and easy-to-use price comparison app. 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 and will play a key role in shaping the future of retail in Asia. Therefore PricePanda seizes this enormous opportunity and supports the m-commerce movement with a valuable app.”
