Leading Southeast Asian fintech entity, Fave, has announced a strategic collaboration with global affiliate marketing heavyweight, Involve Asia. This new alliance is further boosted by the involvement of FindShare, a prominent cashback and rewards program platform provider based in the Philippines. The fusion of these three powerhouses is set to significantly widen Fave’s merchant network, providing a broader array of shopping options to Fave users in Singapore and Malaysia.
Bringing Popular Brands and Greater Savings to Fave Users
The joint venture marks the inclusion of renowned brands like Adidas, Agoda, Decathlon, AirAsia, Lazada, and Klook in categories spanning retail, travel, and e-commerce. As a result, customers can now enjoy cashback rewards with every purchase made through Fave’s affiliate merchant program. Accumulated cashback can subsequently be utilized across FavePay, Fave Deals, and Fave eCards merchants, incentivising regular use and customer loyalty.
Voices from the Partnership
Chen Chow Yeoh, Co-founder of Fave, emphasized the importance of rewarding consumers in the digital era, especially in Southeast Asia where younger demographics are driving the digital economy. “Involve Asia’s expertise in affiliate marketing and its vast network of publishers and influencers will help empower customers to save with loyalty programmes. We want our customers to reap the benefits of greater savings through their use of the Fave app,” he stated.
