2014

The beginning - Singapore

Henry Chan and Joel Leong were toying with business ideas in Henry's car. One idea was to devise a smarter way to shop, starting with the concept of giving online Cashback. They soon gathered a team into a hotel room and, a weekend of labour later, we got our first prototype.

2015-2017

Sharing the joy with our neighbours

ShopBack entered Malaysia and Philippines in 2015, and Indonesia in 2016.

2017-2018

Beyond South East Asia, going in-store

In 2017, ShopBack entered Thailand and Taiwan. In 2018 we started bringing the small wins to Australia and introduced Cashback at physical stores.

Growth, growth, growth

Having closed a fresh funding round in Q1 of 2020, we made moves into South Korea and Vietnam during the year. By this time, we're bringing smarter shopping to a total of 9 countries.
