SuportOthers.online has been designed to act as a marketplace for digital gift cards. It was launched by Bowaba.com, an industry leader in Kuwait when it comes to result-driven digital marketing services.
At a time when the world has been compelled to accept social distancing and isolation as the new normal to protect themselves, their neighbours and their loved ones from the deadly coronavirus. With lockdowns being imposed across the world, however, those that have been worst affected are local businesses.
Businesses such as beauty parlours and salons, coffee shops, restaurants, bookshops, laundry services, and several other businesses that rely on local foot traffic are struggling to maintain their livelihoods, let alone pay their employees.
“We have built a web service that helps make a difference by allowing any small/medium business in Kuwait to easily take secure payments from the customers who love them. Businesses that sign-up at our website can create listings to allow customers to find them and pay now in exchange for goods and services to be redeemed online or when they reopen, with no need to mail physical cards or documentation. We have selected Tap as a payment gateway which will enable all Businesses onSupportOthers.online to easily accept payments from their customers. In order for Tap to settle your sales into your bank account, you’ll have to provide the following:
Individual Business (Freelancers, Home Business etc):
Corporate Business (Licensed Business)
The aim behind launching SupportOthers.online grew from an urgent need to help those in need aid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has affected millions of lives in just a span of months. We hope that our endeavors are able to provide relief to those worst affected by the crisis and prevent local business owners from destitution.”
