What is the best website builder 2018 in Singapore? Are Carousell, Qoo10, and Shoppe the best options for your online business? Read and find out more!
Are you ready to make your first sale? We aren’t going to tell you how to make millions, but if you are interested in starting your own online business in Singapore, this is the perfect article for you.
Three of the biggest and most popular marketplaces and ecommerce websites builders in Singapore are Carousell, Qoo10, and Shoppe. The best platform for your online business depends on the scale of your daily operations.
Usually, the businesses start with Carousell (however, once you start expanding, the platform has significant limitations), then transition to Shoppee (this platform is easy to use, however, it has a small user base), and finally upgrade to Qoo10 which is difficult to use, however, there is a huge audience.
- Carousell: This platform is open to everyone, it is easy to use which makes it perfect for beginners, it has a huge reach meaning you can attract a lot of different customers, and free to use if you promote. As any platform out there, Carousell has certain downsides. Two of the biggest downsides is that you have to settle logistics and payment by yourself and there are a lot of irritating buyers you have to deal with.
- Qoo10: This is a cost-effective solution for building our own online store in Singapore. It is open to everyone (to any type of business, business model, and size), and it has a huge reach. If you are interested in using this solution, there is an one-time registration fee of $100 and the platform takes 12% commission. The biggest downside is that there is a lack of important resources for sellers. Also, there is a low barrier to entry meaning there are a lot of sellers.
- Shoppee: Another great marketplace to consider for your online business. Shoppe is free to use and there is no commision. It is open to everyone, however, your business must be registered and listed on Shopee Mall (this is exclusive for official brands and top sellers). It is a relatively new platform and has a small reach.
