    totally no hidden charges
    ebay's stand is that they hope will attract more ebayers to their main us site.

    they commented in a newspaper article some time ago

    List in SG coz its free list [well its not much fee .. ~$3.50 for $1K - $5k items IIRC] and set "Sell worldwide" to take advantage of the free listing session

    I guess they are out to take out Yahoo Auction
    [they done it with Australian sold.com.au til they collapsed ]

    =bob=
    Nikon 4 & lots of hollow chunky glass

    The promo is for US site only. The SG have been there for years but they have not promote it until recently. There is still alot of hassle on the payment system. Paypal as an example. You sell your item SGD, converts to USD in your paypal account then back to SGD in you bank. This is probably one of the reason why people still prefer the US site.
