As far as online shopping platforms go, Ezbuy is as good a choice as any. 

<p class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="Sure, the Singapore-based e-commerce marketplace has a checkered history, but it has since risen from the ashes of controversy, re-inventing itself as a vibrant shopping platform attracting 1.6 million visitors monthly.&nbsp;” data-reactid=”21″>Sure, the Singapore-based e-commerce marketplace has a checkered history, but it has since risen from the ashes of controversy, re-inventing itself as a vibrant shopping platform attracting 1.6 million visitors monthly

In case you’re looking for yet another platform to indulge your online shopping (no judging, really), here’s an all-in-one guide that tells you all you need to know about Ezbuy. 

<h2 class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="What is Ezbuy and what can you buy?” data-reactid=”23″>What is Ezbuy and what can you buy?

Ezbuy is an online marketplace for lifestyle and household products. You’ll find everything from clothing and fashion, shoes, bags and accessories, to office accessories and equipment, furniture and household items, groceries and health, fitness and beauty products. 

In the past, the company focused exclusively on buying from the vibrant Chinese online marketplace, popularised by Taobao, and then reselling the items for a profit. It was this practice that made it run afoul of Internet giant Taobao, which accused the smaller company of scalping. 

Ever since, Ezbuy has pivoted away from mainly focussing on the Chinese e-commerce sector to branch into local and regional specialities. Although the main draw is still cheap buys coming directly from Chinese manufacturers and distributors, the company has branched out to focus on local products as well as specialities from the USA, Korea, and Taiwan.

<h2 class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="How does Ezbuy work?” data-reactid=”27″>How does Ezbuy work?

There are three main ways you can buy from Ezbuy. 

First, browse the items listed on the website, pay for them and have your items shipped to you — just like any other online store. This is ideal if you’re into some casual shopping and can accept that with cheap prices come occasional hiccups. 

<p class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="However, if you’re looking to buy multiple items that are likely to incur expensive shipping charges, such as say furniture and items for a home makeover, then you may want to make use of ezShop, the company’s concierge shopping service.&nbsp;” data-reactid=”30″>However, if you’re looking to buy multiple items that are likely to incur expensive shipping charges, such as say furniture and items for a home makeover, then you may want to make use of ezShop, the company’s concierge shopping service. 

The concept is simple enough. Just tell Ezbuy what you want to buy, and they will buy it and ship it over to you. You can shop from sellers in Taiwan, China or the USA. 

While ezShop promotes itself on convenience and peace of mind, the biggest benefit is its reduced shipping costs, which are advertised from as low as $0.60/500gm. This is possible because of services like repacking and parcel consolidation to pare down shipping charges as much as possible. In the process, Ezbuy also offers to inspect your purchases. 

<p class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="A similar service is ezShip, which is basically a shipping forwarding service that you can use to buy your favourite Chinese products from sellers that do not ship to Singapore at present. Sign up for ezShip to receive a China shipping address, which you can use to buy from vendors in China. ezShip will then deliver your purchases to Singapore for a fee. Pretty cool, right?” data-reactid=”33″>A similar service is ezShip, which is basically a shipping forwarding service that you can use to buy your favourite Chinese products from sellers that do not ship to Singapore at present.

<h3 class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="Same products, different prices” data-reactid=”35″>Same products, different prices

You may have noticed that there are many similar products listed on the site, at prices that vary, sometimes to quite a large degree. This is probably due to different vendors getting their products from the same supplier but listing them at different prices as separate sellers.

So, you might want to browse around a little more when buying from the site, instead of impulse-buying the first listing you see for the product you want. Hunting down the best bargain for that bedside night light is part of the fun, right? 

<h3 class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="What is Prime membership?” data-reactid=”38″>What is Prime membership?

Ezbuy offers Prime membership that promises flat rate shipping at just $2.99, no matter the weight, size and quantity of your order. This is ideal for those who make regular orders from overseas. However, it may not be an automatic money-saver for everyone.

Why? Because Prime membership is a subscription service that costs $99 for 12 months or $69 for 6 months. There’s also a trial option that costs $9.90 for 5 days, which you can use to test out if Prime will really save you all that much on shipping costs in your particular case. 

<h3 class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="How long does delivery take to Singapore?” data-reactid=”41″>How long does delivery take to Singapore?

Origin Duration (working days)
China (Shanghai/Guangzhou) Air: 3 to 4, 4 to 8 or 6 to 9
Sea: 8 to 15
Taiwan 4 to 7
USA Standard: 4 to 6
Economy: 8 to 11
Korea (beta) 4 to 9

For the most part, Ezbuy delivery standards are on par with most other logistics providers. While they may not be the fastest, they make up for it by offering low shipping rates. 

Like its peers, Ezbuy is also affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic, and customers should expect deliveries to take slightly longer than usual.

<h3 class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="Remember to collect your eCoins” data-reactid=”50″>Remember to collect your eCoins

Ezbuy has a rather quirky reward system in the form of eCoins, which are offered to all customers on a daily basis.

To collect them, all you have to do is to check in on the website or app. You’ll receive a small amount of eCoins per day, and more during promotions. You can use these eCoins to play a daily jackpot with rewards ranging from vouchers, featured products or more eCoins. 

Do remember that your eCoins are not permanent. All eCoins collected throughout the year expire on 31 March of the following year. If that happens, your eCoin count is reset to zero.
