They do. You can find out more from 'Teaching Chinese at home' thread. I think quite a few people have tried dangdang and they successfully order and had it sent to Singapore.

I ordered and had it sent to my friend's place in china. took about 1 plus week and that's becos I'm a newbie so they need to do more confirmation check. Monitored also my credit card account and it seems ok.

You can google dangdang, it's not a fly-by-night company, and i think it's backers quite ok. I was surprised to see.

News in 2010:

HONG KONG, May 17 (Reuters) - Dangdang.com, known as the Chinese equivalent of Amazon.com, has hired two banks for a U.S. initial public shares offering, aiming to list by the end of the year, sources close to the deal said on Monday.

Dangdang.com had hired Credit Suisse to underwrite its long-delayed IPO in the fourth quarter, the sources said, adding that the size of the offering had not yet been fixed. (US$1=HK$7.75)

true, but dang dang's prices are very hard to beat for chinese books. I went agog! even with the shipping charges factored in, it's still way cheaper to order from them than buy in SG.
