SINGAPORE, 4 August 2015 – NTUC FairPrice (FairPrice) today launched an improved version of its FairPrice Online App for both iOS and Android devices to provide a more seamless online shopping experience, greater convenience and more savings for FairPrice online customers.
Having amassed over 100,000 subscribers on its online portal, FairPrice recognises the increasing number of tech-savvy customers looking to shop on the go on their mobile devices. In Singapore, smartphone penetration was 88% in 2014, making it amongst the highest in the world for smartphone usage1.
Dominic Ng Yeow Siang, Deputy General Manager (FairPrice Online), NTUC FairPrice, said, “FairPrice was one of the first retailers to introduce an online grocery shopping portal over 10 years ago and we continue to evolve to keep up with changing consumer lifestyles. The new and improved app makes grocery shopping easy and enjoyable, which caters to time-stretched customers who are always on the go and connected via their smart devices.”
FairPrice Online was launched in 2002 before online shopping gained popularity in Singapore. Since then, online grocery shopping has continued to grow with the portal, which registered a 25 per cent increase on average for monthly online orders in 2015 as compared to the previous year. FairPrice Online offers a wide range of over 5,500 products, ranging from fresh foods to household essentials.
