foodpanda redefines convenience with item replacement feature

item replacement feature


New feature aims to improve shopping experience for customers while helping merchants grow

foodpanda app users can now shop for groceries easily and more conveniently with the launch of the item replacement feature on foodpanda shops. This feature helps customers quickly find alternatives when their ordered products are unavailable. 

The new feature is part of foodpanda’s region-wide roll-out in Asia Pacific, including Singapore and Malaysia, with plans to roll out across all 11 markets in the next few months. 

With the item replacement feature, customers will receive a push notification or text message when an item ordered from foodpanda shops is out of stock, prompting them to substitute it with a similar product. They will have five minutes to make their selection before the replacement process ceases and they are refunded for the unavailable item. foodpanda shops pickers are trained to analyze customer preferences, product specifications and real-time inventory levels, ensuring that replacements not only match the original item but meet customer needs perfectly. 

“We are dedicated to enhancing the shopping experience for our customers. Our new Item Replacement feature ensures that when specific products are out of stock, our customers receive suitable alternatives without any hassle. This feature demonstrates our commitment to customer satisfaction and delivering top-notch service,” said Joseph Wijesekara, foodpanda Philippines Director of Q-Commerce.

A study by IHG group revealed that retailers will lose nearly $1.2 trillion globally in 2023 due to out-of-stock products. Wijesekara noted that offering replacements for out-of-stock items instead of instant refunds could prevent millions in annual sales losses for foodpanda's retail partners. 

To start, item replacement will be available for supermarkets and grocery chains on foodpanda shops such as Robinsons, Shopwise, and Marketplace, with Southstar Drug, Watsons, and Ever Supermarket to follow in the coming months.

SB19, a five-member boy band from the Philippines, returns on “THE FIRST TAKE” with soul-stirring performance of “MAPA”

SB19 The First Take MAPA

SB19, who recently made headlines by surpassing 100 million views on their official lyric video for “MAPA,” is back to “THE FIRST TAKE” with a new performance of another hit song. 

Following their viral hit "GENTO," which they performed during their debut on YouTube channel “THE FIRST TAKE” on July 1st, their second performance video for "MAPA" premiered on July 15th (Monday) at 9:00 pm, Manila time.

For their second performance on THE FIRST TAKE, SB19 will showcase the emotional song "MAPA," a stark contrast to the explosive "GENTO." In this performance, attention should not only be given to their performance but also to the heart-warming lyrics dedicated to their parents and parent figures.

“We’re excited to share a different version of MAPA to the local and international audience through THE FIRST TAKE,” shares SB19 in a press statement. “We’re honored to showcase Filipino music on a music platform with a reputable track record of elevating the global presence of the artists performing. Mad props to THE FIRST TAKE for giving us a chance to impart a piece of our cultural and music sensibilities in ways that could be challenging but exciting.”

“THE FIRST TAKE” is a Japanese YouTube channel that invites top singers and artists from all over the world to perform a song recorded in one take. Videos on “The First Take” are filmed in a studio, with shots of the performing artist and a microphone, set to a background that is usually white.

SB19 on the other hand, is the first Southeast Asian group and the first Filipino to be invited in the influential music media outlet. They recently trended on X after the announcement of their return to “THE FIRST TAKE.”

SB19, who held their first concert in Japan at Tokorozawa Sakura Town on April 29th (Monday) and achieved great success, continues to grow their fandom both domestically and internationally. Following their debut performance of "GENTO" on "THE FIRST TAKE" as the first Filipino artists to be featured, the video has surpassed 2 million views. In response, the members released a thank-you video to their global fans, saying, "We were able to come this far thanks to the support of all the A'TIN." This generated even more attention ahead of their return.

Dragons, Drama, and Deception: Meet the Stars of House of the Dragon

Westeros is on fire! Literally. A Targaryen civil war is brewing, and it's hotter than a dragon's breath. The Greens and the Blacks are battling it out for the Iron Throne, and it's a total rollercoaster!

Based on George R.R. Martin's epic book "Fire & Blood," House of the Dragon is giving us all the drama, betrayal, and jaw-dropping moments we crave. Let's dive into the characters making this show a must-watch!

Daemon Targaryen: The Chaotic Charmer


Matt Smith is killing it as Daemon! One minute he's a rebellious prince, the next he's a loving brother. This guy is all over the place, and we can't get enough! He's like a dragon: powerful, unpredictable, and totally captivating.

Daemon had an incredible character arc in Season 1. Starting as a rogue prince whom everyone thinks wants the throne of his brother Viserys I (Paddy Considine), we saw the charismatic warrior turn into a loving brother and husband. In S1 episode 8, he helps his ailing brother sit on the Iron Throne and gently puts the crown on his head. He also beheads Vaemond Velaryon when he insults Rhaenyra. In S2, Daemon does not want to wait around for Rhaenyra to end her grieving and wants to fight for their birthright.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: The Reluctant Queen

Rhaenyra Targaryen

Rhaenyra is dealing with more heartbreak than a box of tissues can handle. She's trying to hold it all together, but with dragons and backstabbing everywhere, it's tough! We admire Emma D'Arcy's portrayal of the reluctant queen as she displays her strength and her determination to find a peaceful solution.

When will heartache end for Rhaenyra? Possibly never. In S2 episode 1 Rhaenyra grieves over Lucerys’ death. While she doesn’t want a war and wants revenge, she still shows restraint and wants to find a solution without fighting. We love Rhaenyra because even through her anger, she displays restraint.

Aemond Targaryen: The Eye of the Storm

Aemond Targaryen

Aemond lost an eye, but gained a dragon. Talk about a trade-off! He’s got a chip on his shoulder the size of Westeros, and we can't look away. Love him or hate him, Ewan Mitchell as Aemond is definitely making waves.

Aemond displayed his hatred for Rhaenyra’s children early on in the first season. He lost an eye as a child while fighting with his nephew Lucerys Velaryon. He told his mother that he may have lost an eye but he gained Vhagar, one of the most powerful dragons. We see a little more of this character in S2 episode 2. With how Aemond’s history in season one, we can’t help but to feel for his character.

Ser Criston Cole: The Fallen Knight

Criston Cole

From Rhaenyra's lover to Queen Alicent's puppet, Ser Criston's life is a total mess. But hey, we're here for the drama! 
Fabien Frankel's journey from charming knight to power-hungry lackey is a wild ride. 

As a member of the Kingsguard, Ser Criston is often seen breaking his oathand allegiance – first with Rhaenyra in season one and currently with Queen Alicent. By the end of episode 2 of the new season, he has replaced Aegon’s grandfather Otto Hightower as the King’s Hand. Much like Rhaenyra, we fell for his charm in the beginning and are eager to see what comes his way in this season.

Alicent Hightower: The Queen with a Plan

Alicent Hightower

Alicent is playing the game of thrones like a pro. She's ruthless, cunning, and determined to keep her son on the Iron Throne. We might not agree with her methods, but we can't deny she's a force to be reckoned with.

Olivia Cook is perfect for the role of Alicent who is a highly complicated character and would do anything to keep her son on the Iron Throne. While we may not see eye to eye with her, we do respect her character’s development, determination, and how she becomes one of the key players in House of the Dragon.

Rhaenys Velaryon: The Dragon Queen Who Never Was

Rhaenys Velaryon

Rhaenys is a badass. She's powerful, mysterious, and always one step ahead. We wish we could be half as cool as her. Unfortunately, her story takes a tragic turn in Season 2. We never want to say goodbye to Eve Best but...

The Queen who never was, Rhaenys Targaryen was married to Corlys Velaryon, Master of Driftmark and the head of House Velaryon. You can never read Rhaenys or predict what she’s going to do, nor will you ever know whose side she’s on until she wants you to know. She flexed her power at the end ofthe first season when she attacked King’s Landing riding on her dragon, Meleys, and more recently in Season 2 when she stands up to Daemon, telling him to let Rhaenyra grieve.While her strength was truly inspiring, we see Rhaenys fall to her death in House of the Dragon S2.

Cregan Stark: The Future is Here


We love Starks, period. Cregan played by Tom Taylor is young, loyal, and ready to fight for what's right. He's a breath of fresh air in this crazy world.

Lord Cregan Stark is on the list simply because he is a Stark. We love Starks – no matter how long or short their appearance is. Creganpledges his allegiance to the Blacks as he tells Jacaerysthat “the Starks do not forget their oath, my prince…” We can’t wait to see more of Cregan!

House of the Dragon is a non-stop thrill ride, and we're hooked! Don't miss a single episode!
