eBay.ph enters Group Buying with Kuponan
Despite the official entry of global giant Groupon in the Philippines, it did not stop more players to compete in the online group buying frenzy in the country. Even eBay Philippines launched their very own “social buying” service called Kuponan.
The homepage of Kuponan is a little hard to remember (http://kuponan.ebaysocialapps.com) although the latest deals are always posted on the home page of eBay.ph itself.
The mechanics for their social shopping is practically the same as Groupon’s and most other group buying sites.
The biggest advantage of eBay.ph here is that they already have hundreds of thousands of users (most of which are already the buying demographics). Sheer numbers and good deals can make them the service to beat this year. Besides, group buying is all about sales numbers anyway.
