Gamers.PH launches in the Philippines
Takes online auction, game-shopping to the next level
Makati City, PHILIPPINES, 15 July 2013 – Gamers.PH, a premier online auction and shopping website, launches in the Philippines today, taking online bidding and game-shopping into a whole new and exciting level.
Spearheaded together with Soldgers Pte. Ltd., a Singapore-based provider of user-centric e-commerce platforms and the company behind Sold.sg, a leading entertainment shopping site in Singapore, Gamers.PH was developed by gamers and for the gamers; allowing them to participate in an exciting, innovative and reliable auction website offering the latest and most awesome games and gears at great bargains.
“We are excited to launch Gamers.PH in the country,” said Angeline Tham, one of the founders of Soldgers. “The site is run by gamers, so we know by heart what each kind of gamer looks for. From the hottest game releases, to the best deals, competitive gaming equipment and bundles—it’s definitely a shopping haven for gamers.”
Tham highlighted that Gamers.PH features an online auction system, where shoppers can engage in an exciting bidding war for the latest game titles, gaming gear and equipment at almost 80% off the retail price.
“New games pop up all the time and titles fresh off the shelves don’t usually sell cheap. Gamers.PH helps make it possible for these new titles to sell at 50 to 80 percent off the retail price by just participating in the bidding,” Tham furthered. “And that’s where the fun starts.”
Meanwhile Boni Ong, VP for Sales and Distribution at X-Play Online Games, Inc., said that they are thrilled to see Gamers.PH coming to the Philippines. X-Play will be one of the key suppliers for Gamers.PH.
“Gamers.PH provides a whole new venue for online auction and shopping. Given how competitive Filipinos can be, we can’t wait to see how they will engage in the online bidding for the best titles and gaming gears,” he said.
Unlike in traditional online auctions, the bid price is 100% determined by the bidder. They are required to have “tokens” to bid, which is priced at Php 10.00 and can be purchased at the My Page section of the site.
“Registration is fast, simple and free – no credit card information is required. You can get 20 tokens free when you register during the pre-launch period, and a chance to win the Extreme Gamers Package,” shared Tham. “After the launch, you can get 10 free tokens upon registration until end of August 2013.”
All auctions start at Php 0.00, and will increase by 15 cents when someone enters a bid, with the auction timer to increase by up to 20 seconds.
When the timer reaches zero (0) and the auction closes, the last successful bidder wins the right to buy the product at the final auction price, which usually ends between 60-98% discount OFF the retail price.
Delivery of items will run from 3 to 5 days if within Metro Manila; and 5 to 7 days outside of Metro Manila. Modes of payment can be through GCash, SmartMoney, Debit (Bancnet), PayPal, COD and Over-the-counter. Best thing is Gamers.ph offers FREE DELIVERY nationwide!
