How does the service work?
Visitors can either browse or search for products. Once a product is chosen, the service generates a price comparison and provides a list of merchants who offer the specific product. To facilitate your shopping experience, we also provide the contact details of each participating merchant so users can contact merchants for stock verification.
Is Simlim.sg affiliated in any way with Sim Lim Square or Sim Lim Tower?
Simlim.sg is a completely independent service not affiliated with Sim Lim Square or Sim Lim Tower. Our mission is to provide transparency between merchants and customers through an interactive website and we can only achieve this by being fully independent.
Does it cost anything to use the service?
There is no cost to visitors and members of Simlim.sg. This site is maintained by merchants who subscribe to the service to publish their products and prices which allows Simlim.sg to always be free for the public.

Do all merchants list their prices and products on Simlim.sg?
Unless a merchant’s products and prices are freely available in the public domain, only merchants who voluntarily join Simlim.sg’s database will be featured on this service. As of 15 October 2016, we have over 55 merchants participating in this service.
How often are prices and products updated?
Participating merchants update their products and pricing regularly. Please feel free to contact merchants directly via the contact details provided by Simlim.sg.
What if I have a suggestion to make this service even better?
We built this price comparison service after spending too much time trying to find the best prices on electronics and accessories in Singapore and also having some not-so- great shopping experience at Sim Lim. Any suggestions on how we can make this service even better is always greatly appreciated. Please drop us a line any time by clicking here.
