An important day is looming over us and it is getting closer and closer! We are pretty sure everyone knows what day it is too. So, do we still have to mention it? Well, we’ll say it anyway! Merdeka Day is here again! This 31st of August marks the 64th year we are celebrating Merdeka. As with many national holidays across the globe, it also means every retail and shopping platform in Malaysia is most probably offering Merdeka sales! Yes, Beauty Insider highly encourages you to spend and splurge on yourself! Whether it’s on your skincare, makeup, wellness, fitness, electronics or books, there’s one platform that has it all, and that is Hoolah.



Hoolah is a leading omnichannel in Asia, featuring a buy now and pay later concept. As a retail company supporting several brands, Hoolah is an innovative platform for consumers to shop! Hailing originally from Singapore, Hoolah is live in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong as well! What’s more, is that it is rapidly growing and expanding across the globe. Hoolah aims to help Asia’s merchants generate new customers that actually check out instead of abandoning their shopping carts. Thus, they provide an affordable way for consumers to spend, but at the same time, allow them to do so responsibly! With this method, they are able to offer merchants a data-rich and cost-effective way of driving loyalty, affiliate marketing, and increasing the size of their baskets. 

To help enrich the lifestyle of their consumers, Hoolah offers an interest-free instalment divided into three. Whether it is purchasing online or in-store, you can opt to distribute your cost across this instalment plan. This intrigues consumers as they are able to kind of get a product without paying the full price upfront. With no hidden costs and interests, consumers can add an item to their shopping cart and select Hoolah as their payment method. This allows them to pay ⅓ of the price upfront with either a credit or debit card first. The next two payments are required to be paid back in a span of 2 months. After your first initial payment, you will receive your product and the remaining balance will be automatically deducted! If you are purchasing in-store, all you need to have is the Hoolah app and you are good to go!
