With a firm resolve to make Dubai shopping a win-win experience both for merchants and shoppers, tipadeal.com is poised to rock the Dubai daily deal market. Currently on the beta testing, the group buying website is expected to publish Dubai deals by the beginning of next year.
Tipadeal’s project director says the website will provide daily deals of foods, fun-filled activities, and lifestyle events to buyers in Dubai.
In January 2012, internet population will be exposed to a different daily deal marketplace standing out among other daily deal websites in Dubai, he says.
There are well-heeled daily deal websites in Dubai providing vouchers in partnership with the small and medium businesses. But, the budding site claims what it has in store for merchants will be matchless because of the lowest-ever margin it plans.
“We have a tariff line of 25 per cent, which is terrifically market competitive. Others literally peeling skins off merchants charge 50 per cent of a deal price,” mentions the project director.
“Half cut is a sheer injustice to businesses which are already factoring in upfront costs of coupons at the prospect of bulk sale.”
And, similarly tipadeal is on the streak of widening its partnering network by distributing attractive incentives. Dubai deal aggregators will enjoy at least 10 per cent shares in its profit.
Together with our wide customer database, the partner network powered by Cobones.com and other aggregators is going to play a major role in prompting Dubai deals far and wide, says the project director. “Our email marketing expertise will up the ante at last.”
Internet users in UAE are expected to grow with an average rate of 6.5 per cent for next five years, according to Euromonitor International.
Tipadeal will have three smart payment options to make Dubai shopping convenient and hassle-free for its consumers: PayPal, MoneyBookers (all leading credit cards), and cash on delivery. The payment transactions will be secured with sturdy secure sockets layer (SSL) of verisign authentication service.
Dubai is really the jewel of Middle East. A survey by Yahoo Maktoob Research concluded shoppers preferred Dubai shopping over shopping in London, Paris, and other bustling cities across the world.
Tipadeal is owned by JS FZ LLC, a registered company in the UAE Free Zone. Its head office is based in Dubai while it also has an office in RAK. The company is a corporate extension of JS Solutions Inc. The website is currently on beta testing.
