Can you PM me your ebay nickname, I am also very familiar with buying watches from a supplier here in Singapore on ebay, So I do have quite some knowledge on selling watches too.

What does come to mind, is that some suppliers, actually engage power sellers to sell, their products.

So I am wondering why, you would have suppliers send watches to you? Being a power seller, is quite an established success story in itself, taking commission on sales, however, I try to figure, why you would want to do a watch business, when most power sellers deal with many products, because the art is in the actual presentation of the goods, and knowledge of running an auction.

My other point is now that sellers are not allowed to give negative feedback, what will happen.

Most of your sales most be outside of Singapore? Singapore online auctions, there is a very high risk of none payers in Singapore, wouldn't you say.

Mods please do not delete the post above, just yet, this is really a meaty topic on auction sales, and could be very beneficial for many, lets call it a case study :) drumbeat advertising is not really allowed, but this could be very interesting for new start ups, or those that are interested in online sales.

Well he never did PM me his ebay nickname.

I would be very cautious of buying an ebay account, most power sellers are chosen by retail outlets, to sell products for them, but never carry the goods themselves...

Watches however can be a good line of business providing you are getting them at the right price and they are genuine, most dealerships will be angry, however and will not honour guarantees, just one of the problems, quite a few more, can be expected.

warranty cards that are stamped, need to be checked out, for authenticity. 15K for a sales account appears to be a lot to ask for in my book, and I would also expect problems with ebay, on the signing over, too because of payment gateway, and bank accounts setup. So one really does need to be careful on purchasing an online business, with many details to look into.

Hello to everybody!

Postby Mathew Wong » Thu, 17 Jul 2008 11:51 am

Cheers to all of you! I'm also pretty interested to open up a rep office in Singapore. We're a software company operating out of the Philippines, and we're looking to Singapore as one of our choices (apart from Shanghai and Saigon).

Can any of the members here offer help of any kind for a foreign company looking to do business in Singapore? Can you recommend any agencies that will facilitate the ease of entry into the country?

Thank you! :)
