All merchants have their own needs. Some might want higher brand exposure while others might prefer to know their footfall. Fave recognises this, so they offer 2 different propositions for their merchants—FaveDeals and FavePay. “With Deals, it is a great way to acquire new customers, drive off-peak timing and even introduce new items among other things. Whereas with FavePay, it’s all about driving customer loyalty through cashback and convenience,” said Chee Mun. It seems to be working as FavePay already has 600 outlets using their service. Their first month itself saw an increase of 577% of cashless transactions among their merchants and an increase of 421% in sales.
