DealGoing, a daily deals aggregator site, releases Mall Diskon last Friday. Mall Diskon is mentioned as a marketplace of this aggregator, looks similar with the daily deals service itself, complete with discount, purchase period and the minimal limit of buyer. Mall Diskon is formed as a tab in Deal Going website.
The offer in Mall Diskon is also displayed inside the daily deals aggregator owned by Deal Going with a specific sign on the button to display the detail of the deal. Although Deal Going has expanded to Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippine, Mall Diskon is only limited for Indonesia.
As reported in the press release, the content of Mall Diskon is mentioned as originated from the aggregation of several marketplace. But when I browse around, there is no link or information that lead to said marketplace. And because the transaction happens inside Deal Going site, then the service is appear to be more of a daily deals itself.
Mall Diskon separates the offered products into 11 categories, namely: gadget, automotive, travel, books, fun, children, health, fashion, beauty, food and home appliances. Several producer such as Zyrex and Nike have placed their products in Mall Diskon.
For the payment of transaction, Mall Diskon receives bank transfer, Mandiri Clickpay and cooperating with Ipaymu to provide a payment platform called GoPay. In the future, Mall Diskon will develop a way for payment with BCA Klikpay and credit card.
As a website with daily deals aggregator service, Deal Going certainly has a data (through traffic) on how daily deals business runs lately. If they are tempted to walk in the daily deals busines, then that means that the demand for daily deals is still high.
