Asian people are increasingly using free internet classified websites according to Wayan Chan of Admart.Asia (www.Admart.Asia).
“We pretty much started our website during the time that the economic crisis first began back in 2008” said Miss Chan. “People in Asia seem to becoming more comfortable advertising things for sale on the internet, and lots of people are now on the lookout for bargains and ways to save money. Our website is an efficient platform that helps bring buyers and sellers together”.
“Many people seem to hold the view that Asian people do not like buying second-hand things, but this is not what we are seeing. If anything, I think Asian people could be characterized as being keen to actively seek out bargains, especially when times are tough”.
Thousands of people across the Asian region now use the Admart.Asia website to read and post free classified advertisements. The website also provides a Personals dating section, as well as separate sections to advertise property, vehicles, and jobs.
“I think the best types of bargains are where ex-pats are leaving a country and have decided to quickly sell up all of their furniture or their car” said Miss Chan. “We are seeing this type of advertisement especially from Hong Kong and Singapore. Recently I have seen cars, electronic equipment, and furniture advertised on our site at incredibly cheap prices”.
