TAKING online auction and game shopping to the next level, a Singapore-based provider of e-commerce platforms on Monday launched Gamers.PH.
Soldgers Pte. Ltd., the company behind Sold.sg, which is the leading entertainment shopping site in Singapore, together with gamers spearheaded the development of Gamers.PH.
Gamers.PH was developed by gamers and for the gamers, allowing them to participate in an exciting, innovative and reliable auction Web site offering the latest and most awesome games and gears at great bargains.
“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,” said Angeline Tham, one of the founders of Soldgers.
She said 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 percent off the retail price.
Unlike in traditional online auctions, the bid price is 100-percent determined by the bidder. They are required to have “tokens” to bid, which is priced at P10 and can be purchased at the My Page section of the site.
“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-[percent]to 80-percent off the retail price by just participating in the bidding,” Tham added.
She said that registration is fast, simple and free, adding that “no credit-card information is required.”
“You can get 20 tokens free when you register during the prelaunch period, and a chance to win the Extreme Gamers Package,” she added.
For his part, Boni Ong, vice president for sales and distribution of X-Play Online Games Inc., said that the company is thrilled to see Gamers.PH coming to the Philippines. X-Play will be one of the 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 added.
