Some questions:
1. Has anyone done the verification process for Alipay (支付宝)? Eg. facial, passport or whatever method? I have some money (less than 100 RMB) in Alipay from long ago, and am wondering if it's possible to use it. It seems that I have to do some verification first because of new money laundering rules, and I wonder if it's worth bothering.

2. Has anyone topped up Alipay using a Singapore credit card or other means WITHOUT a Chinese bank card/account? If it's possible, does it save any money doing this rather than paying with a foreign credit card for each transaction? I used to top up in cash through a post office as I didn't have a Chinese bank card.

Has anybody used ezbuy prime to ship bulky furniture?
I did in the past.
1x dining table.
4x dining chairs.
2x barstools.
1x shoe cabinet.
1x lights.
Great! Was wondering if I should consider ezbuy prime if I am gonna to refurnish my apt. Ezbuy and Laz have cancelled my order before...no reason given...so thought maybe they did it because they will lose $$$ shipping the items.

I didn't have a good experience with Ezbuy. I ordered an item from them but never received it.

Hello dear parents!

Would need your help with a short questionnaire: https://bedtimestoriessg.typeform.com/to/PC8duk

Context: i’m starting a Children’s Book Subscription Box in Singapore and would appreciate your help to make it better! (I promise I'm not here to sell anything, I really just want to gather opinions and feedback)

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,
Stace

Qoo10 is great and enjoyed so much savings especially with the additional discount coupons. But there are certain things I have stopped buying from there- things I actually put into and on my body. I had some bad experiences with fake skin products and low grade food products. For those, it is still better to buy fromproper retailers, online or physical stores.

I stay away from it since I've paid but my recliner wasn't delivered at all
Amazon is more reliable!

Agreed, I have made some purchases from Amazon and so far I have no complaints. This is one of the cons of online shopping, it's hard when you paid for the product and didn't receive it at all.
