YouTrip, Singapore's leading multi-currency mobile wallet, is gearing for growth with its biggest user referral programme since its launch in 2018.

From 30 March 2021, YouTrip users will earn S$5 with each successful referral, along with a S$50 bonus when they complete their first 10 referrals.

Despite the pandemic’s impact on global travel, YouTrip saw a 300% increase in overseas e-commerce payments last year after pivoting to promote international online shopping with payments in foreign currencies at sites such as Taobao (RMB), ASOS (British pounds), and Amazon (US$).

Caecilia Chu, Co-Founder, and CEO of YouTrip, said “Our users have always been our best spokespersons, and word of mouth has naturally been a huge part of our growth over the years. Despite travel coming to a standstill over the last year, many of our users have continued to use YouTrip to save on their foreign currency spending online.

"As more people make foreign currency payments online, we feel we’re in a good position to reward our existing users who continue to support us, along with those who come on board.”

To receive referral rewards, existing YouTrip users must copy the unique referral link generated in the YouTrip app and send it to anyone who isn’t already a YouTrip user. New users will have to accept the invite via the unique referral link and sign up for a YouTrip account.

Both referrer and referee will receive S$5 in their YouTrip accounts upon the first successful top-up. In addition, existing users will receive a one-time S$50 bonus upon completing their first 10 referrals, and will continue to receive S$5 per referral thereafter.

As a launch exclusive, the first 250 users to complete three successful referrals will also enjoy an additional S$15 bonus.

The launch of the referral programme is part of YouTrip’s plans to be the region’s leading multicurrency mobile wallet. Most recently, YouTrip announced a six-year partnership with Visa to accelerate its expansion into the rest of Southeast Asia, starting with Malaysia and the Philippines.

Currently operating in Singapore and Thailand, YouTrip has amassed over 1 million downloads to date.
