It's FREE!

We are giving it free,

NOT because :- we want your personal info ( No , we don’t even know your name cause we are using lazy registration ) . The emails are strictly kept by us only and only for our communications with you regarding XiaoBazaar

NOT because :- this XiaoBazaar is easy for us to build , therefore we can give it free, in fact , the effort we spent is tremendous! and we are proud to be able to pass the end result of our hardwork to you :- simplicity and convenience for you to set up your online store 

NOT because :- we are crazy ☺ ( although a little bit sometimes, you know how programmers are :p ) , but we would like you to be part of XiaoBazaar . This XiaoBazaar, we think is one of Singapore’s innovative product and we would like you to be the first to try it out! 

We are giving it free,

Because : We would like you to try it out before you commit ! Play with it , stress test it , change the skin, set up facebook login , set up payment , Play with it !

Because : We value our first esteemed groups of sign ups , for being the pioneer, we are giving free product uploads to a maximum of 50 products. Subsequent sign ups, we can’t guarantee that cause we need to recover our hosting fees and of course, we have our family to feed as well ☺

Why is it so affordable?

By automating the whole e-commerce set up , we are able to pass our savings to you , we do not need a huge manpower team to help you configure the domain , customize your skins , set up your store etc etc . As opposed to traditional e-commerce company , they will manually configure this for you and the process is tedious (Thus the expensive initial set up fees and hosting fees that they will charge ) 

Besides, We are using Cloud Technologies, by using this awesome technology; your hosting is simply smarter, not only in terms of cost, but also in security and uptime! 

When will we start charging? 
Pretty soon, but we will guarantee that there will always be a free plan where we will set a maximum numbers of products upload. So, you have absolutely nothing to lose if you sign up!
