Malaysia has received its very first real-time mobile commerce marketplace platform in the form of Page Advisor which is a mobile application that allow users to receive quotations for services that are otherwise a hassle to deal with normally. Page Advisor’s launch in Malaysia follows a successful debut which was first tested on Singapore grounds and now, Malaysians would be able to enjoy quick and easy home and life style services within fingers reach.
Page Advisor is a unique product that gives consumers the full range of services which includes, sourcing, payment services and also dispute resolution, all within a single package. In Singapore itself, there are more than 100 services to choose from which gives a wide berth of variety.
If a user is in need of the services, all they would need to go through are the list of services, answer a series of questions to help improve quotation accuracy and the date and time of the required service. From there, details pertaining to the request would be sent over to the merchant of the appropriate category. Users would then receive bids of quotes which will reflect the price range as well as the different vendors. Users are able to view the bidders profile before accepting the request as well as check their ratings and user reviews. Payment is then made via credit card upon job confirmation which does away with the need for cash or cheque payments.
Additionally, consumers are also given additional benefits via the Merchant Guarantee Programme (MGP) which allows service providers to sign up for a lower platform feee while customers enjoy a full 100 percent money back guarantee. An additional benefit for service providers comes with a free of charge directory and listing to pay a fee once the job is completed. As part of the launch promotion in Malaysia, all jobs completed in July would be ‘fee free’ for service providers.
As part of their launch celebration, Page Advisor is giving first time users a rebate of up to RM20 on their first transaction through the app, which applies to all job requests submitted by July 31st.
