Firstly, RedeemSG makes it very easy for agencies to easily start a government voucher campaign - this includes specifying an eligibility list for social assistance (e.g. only 1-3 room HDB households) and specifying the merchants that they want to participate in their campaign (e.g. spectacle shops only).
Secondly, RedeemSG provides the agencies with the ability to automate the payout process and improve financial reconciliation as all the records are provided through the system. Thirdly, RedeemSG ensures inclusivity by providing agencies with the ability to cater to both digital and paper vouchers concurrently, which ensures the digitally less savvy are still able to access the same vouchers.

This has been designed after several rounds of consultations with recipients and merchants to gather feedback on the design of the denominations. We earlier tested a e-wallet version of the voucher, which tended to be error prone and harder to use.
Similar to other vouchers like supermarket vouchers, there will be no change provided if the purchase amount is less than the vouchers used.
