Webuy Announces Strategic Expansion into Insurance Referral Program

Singapore, May 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Webuy Global Ltd (NASDAQ: WBUY) (“Webuy” or the “Company”), a Southeast Asian community e-commerce retailer, today announced its strategic expansion into an insurance referral program to deliver insurance solutions to markets across Asia.

By leveraging its “One on One Match” service, Webuy’s insurance referral program pairs each customer with an insurance specialist, who will tailor product recommendations to meet the client’s unique needs. Customers can access hundreds of insurance products spanning health, life, property, travel, and more, through Webuy’s partnership with a leading insurance broker in Singapore.

The insurance referral program incentivizes Webuy’s Group Leaders to promote insurance products and drive referrals within their communities. In turn, Group Leaders earn referral fees based on successful referrals, customers gain access to discounted policies, and insurance partners benefit from lower acquisition costs and higher retention through community engagement.

Vincent Xue Bin, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Webuy, commented, “Our mission has always been to make everyday products and services more affordable and accessible through community group purchases. With our expansion into insurance referrals, we can leverage our growing community base to negotiate better rates and connect customers with coverage plans tailored to their individual needs. Our move into the insurance referral space unlocks a high-potential business that dovetails with our commitment to continuously evolve our offerings and scale into new markets. Looking ahead, we will continue to focus on building our community network while generating long-term value for our shareholders.”
