Gumtree Singapore gets better with improved interface, new mobile site and property section

Celebrates with Singapore’s First Property Speed Dating Event to Match-Make Landlords with Potential Tenants in August

eBay Classifieds Group today announced the launch of an enhanced Gumtree Singapore – Singapore’s popular classifieds portal, which promises to deliver a free, easy-to-use and effective trading environment to existing and new users.

Gumtree is dedicated to bringing people together for any kind of trade, with the trust that comes with face-to-face trading. The new design boasts an improved homepage, displaying users’ ads in a more prominent and attractive way. It is also much easier for users to navigate and find different deals and bargains. To cater to the needs of busy Singaporeans, Gumtree has also introduced a mobile version of its website to enable trading on the go.

Property is one of the hottest categories of Gumtree Singapore. To facilitate search and ad browsing, a new Property section has been created. It allows search based on property type, location and price range, helping users quickly find what they are looking for. Users will also be able to find other products and services essential to a property purchase or rental in this section.

To celebrate the launch, Gumtree is organizing Singapore’s first ever Property speed-dating event. The event will mimic actual speed dating, but instead of potential love-birds, the event aims to match-make landlords with potential tenants, by bringing them together in a casual and fun-filled setting. Interested users can register for this free event on Gumtree’s website.

“The property section has always been one of the most vibrant categories on Gumtree Singapore. A huge number of listings are being posted daily,” says Frances Chiu, General Manager, APAC, eBay Classifieds Group. “By organizing Singapore’s first Property speed-dating event, we want to bring the Gumtree online trade experience into real life, and give our loyal and new users a chance to meet up, share experiences and close deals!”

Besides its strength in the property category, Gumtree has also established itself among Singaporeans as a popular online community, where buyers and sellers get connected to trade. The website has been well received by both SMEs and individuals who use it for all kinds of trades, from selling second-hand cars, offering accounting services to looking for lost pets. The website also serves the environment by finding a second home for items that would otherwise have been discarded.

“Gumtree is already a well-established brand among Singaporeans who are looking for a convenient way to trade with each other,” says Ms. Chiu. “We are confident that with enhancements such as the Property section, mobile webpage and other upcoming local features, users will find that Gumtree is a site that is tailored to meet their daily trading needs.”

Gumtree Singapore is accessible to everyone, everywhere, at any time of the day. The site encompasses a vast range of classified ad categories, and basic ad listings are completely free. Users who want more visibility for their ads can choose to pay a small fee to have their ads displayed in more prominent positions.

As part of the eBay Classifieds Group, the global leader in online classifieds, which also includes the well-known Kijiji and other eBay Classifieds brands, Gumtree is backed by one of the most reputable and pioneering names on the Internet. Gumtree Australia, South Africa and Kijiji Taiwanare already the no.1 online classifieds sites in their respective markets, seeing over 150,000 new listings each day.
