SPH Launches STClassifieds (BT)

BackOct 30, 2012

SINGAPORE Press Holdings has officially inaugurated STClassifieds, a classifieds portal acting as a platform for users to find whatever they need online, or sell things they do not need.

Known previously as ST701 Shops, the all-new STClassifieds has four categories – For Him, For Her, For Kids and For Household. Popular categories include fashion, computer & electronics and home & appliances. Also to be launched are thematic clusters based on festive seasons and special occasions.

"With more people using the Internet to buy and sell things, we see the introduction of STClassifieds as timely and a service to them," said Johnson Goh, vice-president and head of SPH Online Classifieds (ST701). "Of course, as with all online transactions, I would like to take the opportunity to remind users to exercise due diligence when it comes to sealing their deals online," he added.

Product manager of STClassifieds Tan Yexiang said checks are in place for fraud monitoring and to minimise spam on the website.

The STClassifieds app is available on Android phones. It will soon be available on iPhone and iPad.

To celebrate its launch, STClassifieds will hold hourly deals and promotions on its website. There will also be a movie preview of the latest James Bond instalment Skyfall, and STClassifieds Feste, a carnival and flea market, in conjunction with its opening.
