If you’ve ever had to put off a purchase due to its price tag or deny yourself a shopping spree in fear of having to “eat grass” in the months after, then you’ll be glad to know that there is an app that’ll let you have your cake and eat it too. ShopBack has teamed up with hoolah to spearhead a new Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) feature called ShopBack PayLater.
You’ll now be able to pay in 3-month interest-free instalments when you go shopping, meaning more money left over for saving. To celebrate the launch, there are deals happening from now till 2nd October ranging from fashion to tech as well as a roving carnival happening at CapitaLand Malls.
How ShopBack PayLater works
Shopping while saving money seems like a dream come true for hardcore shoppers and bargain hunters alike, especially during the closing months of the year when sales and promos emerge to drain the contents of your bank account.

This is where ShopBack PayLater comes in to help you stretch the value of your dollar. Not only will you be able to earn Cashback from eligible merchants when they redirect from ShopBack, but you can use the money you’ve earned from Cashback to offset any outstanding payments you may have on your PayLater account.
This means that you’re paying less out of your own pocket and, with the capability to stack ShopBack promos on top of merchant vouchers, you can look forward to spending more while saving more when you shop. You also needn’t worry about losing track of your bills, as the app allows you to track your purchases so you’re always on time with your payments.
Celebrate ShopBack PayLater’s launch with a carnival & freebies
To celebrate the launch of the ShopBack PayLater and offer even more rewards when you shop, there will be a ShopBack Feels Good Carnival that will be roving around various CapitaLand malls on the following dates:
- Funan DigitaLife Mall: 15th-21st August 2022
- Bugis+: 29th August to 4th September 2022
- Junction 8: 12th-18th September 2022
First-time ShopBack users can claim a free cup of R&B bubble tea and ShopBack goodies like enamel pins, iron-on badges, and vinyl stickers.

Look forward to rewards like:
- Limited edition ShopBack swag when you participate in the Tap-Tap game at the carnival.
- $8 eCapitaVoucher with a minimum spend of $80 at partnering retailers.
- $10 discount with a minimum spend of $30 at partnering retailers for first-time ShopBack PayLater users.
And if you pay for any item using the 3-month instalment plan, you get to enter a draw where you stand a chance to win S$100,000 worth of Tesla shares. An even better steal than winning an actual car; because while cars don’t necessarily go up in value over time, shares do.
Free tea or coffee from PPP Coffee – just one of the many goodies you can look forward to at the Love Bonito x ShopBack Cafe pop-up.
