With the end of the year upon us, e-wallet Boost and Recommend.my are partnering to give homeowners a special promotion in the spirit of giving as well as an easier way to pay for home services.

Recommend.my is a platform that was launched in 2014 where you can book home service providers.

There are over 50 types of services including renovations, home cleaning, air-conditioner servicing, moving, and kitchen cabinet makers, to name a few.

Basically, whatever you need to build or renovate your home with, you can probably find someone who can do all that for you on Recommend.my.

You can view project listings by various service providers to get a feel for what sort of improvements they can make to your home, which makes finding the right person easier.

According to Recommend.my, all of its service professionals are verified, rated and reviewed by previous customers for quality, service levels, timeliness and value, with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Towards A Cashless Nation

Previously, to pay for a service on Recommend.my, you’d have to pay via FPX, a credit card, or direct online banking transfer.

But now you have another convenient payment option: Boost.

According to Recommend Group’s co-founder Jes Min Lua, this will enable Malaysians to order Recommend.my services through the Boost app with the added security of cashless payments.

“Our service vendors are also looking forward to freeing their technician teams from handling cash, which reduces risk while on the road,” she said.

Not only do the service providers not need to handle cash, but the homeowner (you) also won’t have to worry about keeping a large amount of cash at home while the servicing or work is being done.

How this will work is that after a Recommend.my pro completes your air-conditioner servicing, for example, you can pay with Boost and get cashback for the amount spent.

Mohd Khairil Abdullah, CEO of Boost commented, “With this relationship, we are building a robust cashless digital ecosystem where Recommend.my adds value to the Boost offering for our nearly 5 million users while we offer the convenience and security of going cashless for Recommend.my users.”

In The Spirit Of Giving (Back)

Boost is one of Malaysia’s leading e-wallets and is known for its user rewards like ‘Shake Reward’ and ‘Boost Missions’.

With the end of the year festivities coming up, Boost’s partnership with Recommend.my will also be rewarding users with attractive promotion deals.

From now until December 31, 2019, if you pay for Recommend.my services with Boost, you might be one of 20 lucky customers who will win 100% cashback from Boost.

Even if you don’t win that, you’d still have the chance to win an RM100 voucher to book any future Recommend.my service, and there are 20 of those vouchers available.

One could say that this partnership and promotion couldn’t have come at a better time, since homeowners may be looking at renovating or servicing their homes for Christmas and New Year, and the potential cashback would be perfect for spending on some Christmas gifts too.
