There are so many products in our daily lives that are made in China. China is famed for being able to produce products that are less than half the cost of what we would normally pay in Singapore. Savvy Singaporeans are already scouting websites for the best bargains, the only factor that is deterring Singaporeans from buying Chinese products online is the fear of getting cheated with inferior products or even worse non-delivery of the products. Thankfully, SGshop is here to bring the best of Taobao bargains to Singapore with attractive rebates from MayBank Credit Cards!
Taobao (aka Discover Treasures in Mandarin) is an amazing website to source out the best bargains from the Chinese online market place. Shopping for items on Taobao is the fun part but getting them shipped over is another story. That is where SGshop comes into the picture. Their service literally means “shop on your behalf”. They act as your purchasing agent to make purchase direct from Chinese vendors through modern information platform and perfect logistics system to eliminate cumbersome transport, customs and even vendor communication troubles. Plus, you get to pay in Singapore dollars instead of RMB. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Start Shopping!
SGshop makes it really easy to browse for products. If you know what you want, zoom straight to their product categories drop list. Else check out the Hot Items tab for the most popular products!
I know one of my friend is going to go absolute gaga over this and its only $4.04! You can find out more about the seller and gauge their truth-worthiness through their scores.
Step 2: Choose Shipping Method
Once you have selected your product, confirm your preferred shipping method. I am going for Economy Sea Shipping as this is a gift for Christmas. Once that is done, just click ‘Submit’!
Step 3: Check Order Information
SGshop offers you a chance to do a final check on your orders before you click ‘Pay’
Step 4: Make Payment
Similar to what some of our banks are doing, they also have a secured mobile verification process!
We get to select from Visa, e-NETS & PayPal. I selected PayPal and the payment journey was seamless.
The entire shopping experience on Taobao via SGshop was a fun and pleasant one. I love the seamless, hassle free ordering and delivery process and definitely enjoyed the savings. I am looking forward to uncover more ‘treasures’ from Taobao!
There has never been a better time to do your Christmas shopping on SGshop. From now till 30 November 2014, enjoy $10 rebate* on each transaction with a minimum spend of $50 on new orders at SGshop with your Maybank Cards.
