Online shopping has brought us so much convenience (and happiness). Most retailers offer value-adding services like free exchange or refund within a specific time frame and fast delivery option, to keep up with the competitive nature of the e-commerce industry.
While everyone is still excited about the recent launch of Amazon’s Prime Now app in Singapore, we have decided to share 15 other trustworthy e-commerce retailers that you can safely shop at.
What’s even better? These online shops offer FREE shipping to Singapore:
Looking for a one-stop shop to update your entire family’s wardrobe? Next.sg offers a wide range of apparels and accessories, even for the newborn babies. As efficient as it sound, they deliver your products to your doorstep within 4 working days.
If you love MUJI products, you will also be thrilled at these minimalistic household items on OhHappyFry. You can rest assure that the quality of each products are carefully vetted by the shop owner, Rae Yun herself – as compared to getting items from unreliable vendors on Taobao platform.

For those who are looking for red carpet ready attire at a reasonable price, Tobi is the right place to go. Tobi covers the outfit you need for all sort of occasions- from beach party to even your sweet 16 birthday dress.
Have a specific book in mind but finds it a chore to pop by a physical bookstore? Book Depository will be the place for you to get your books within a few clicks. Be thrilled by their wide range of books available and even getting your hands on books that have yet been launched in Singapore. Do check out their website regularly for great promotion deals, on top of their free international delivery.
For every good thing often comes with some cons too. The international shipping takes around 2 to 3 weeks to reach Singapore. Thus, if you are in a rush to get the books as a gift to someone, we definitely recommend you to buy them way in advance.
Fishpond.com works like a mini Amazon, they offer books, homeware items, toys, beauty and even health products. In terms of price competitiveness, we think Fishpond offers pretty awesome deals on their books. You may want to compare the prices between Fishpond and Book Depository before making your purchase.
Similar to Book Depository, the shipping takes around 2 weeks to reach our Singapore shore.
