How to Shop on eBay and Ship to Singapore?

 

 

eBay is one of the largest online marketplaces for buying and trading all kinds of products. More than 100 million online shoppers around the world shop on eBay just because you can find whatever you want (YES – even for rare, collectible cards or watches) and most importantly, the price could be much cheaper!

However, the problem is, you may have to deal with individual sellers. Some of them are willing to ship to Singapore, but most of them don’t. Why? It is not just because of the shipping fee, but they also want to avoid handling shipping documents. Shipping things outside the U.S. is much more complicated.

This is where Buyandship comes in. You can shop on eBay and ship with us! Here we’ll guide you on how to sign up and shop on eBay!

How to Shop on eBay?

Step 1
Discover What You Love from Millions of Listings
Make use of the search function to find the product you want. Unlike Amazon, there are 3 ways to purchase an item:

💡 Click “Add to Cart” to continue shopping, or select “Buy It Now” to purchase the item immediately;
💡 Sometimes there is a “Make Offer” button. This means if you believe the “Buy It Now” price doesn’t meet your budget, you can propose a price to the seller. The seller has the right to make a “Counter-offer”, or simply reject it.
💡 For the auction, you can submit a bid for the item. Bid usually goes fast at the last minute, so make sure you have added the item to your “Watchlist”, and keep watching the product page to ensure you are not getting outbid!

Duty will be calculated on the sum of the CIF and the landing charges.) value is over S$400.

Our courier partners will handle the process on your behalf and will inform you beforehand on the estimated custom tax and duty you’ll need to pay to Customs.
