Hey pal, what items are you intending to sell? Most push carts in city areas are quite expensive close to 3K-5K and require you to rent for minimum 3 months.. So far the rates i know at Far East Plaza and orchard cineleisure are the cheapest, about 1.5-2K. Normally the procedure is to contact the plaza's management office directly. You can pm me , i can give you the contacts if you require.. Have you tried selling at flea markets?

The cheapest Push Cart in Singapore is at Orchard Central ($500 per month) and Far East Square ($1,200). The most important thing is not about the rental fees but the traffic flow. You can try the cheapest push cart in town but the traffic might be very low.

The 2nd thing is to know what product are you selling and your targeted market. If you are new and do not have a lot of products to sell, I would suggest that you share a pushcart with another person. This way, you could lower the rental and staff costs. Get a pushcart with good traffic rather than a cheap pushcart with low traffic. This way, you will be able to gauge whether your product can survive in the market.

Managing a pushcart might look simple but actually there are a lot of things that you need to prepare. It is not easy money and you must be prepared to work hard and to always think of ways to improve your sales. You have to think about how to decorate your pushcart, how to make sure your products stand out in the pushcart, how to display your products so that you can maximize your pushcart space, what happens when your staff last minute cannot come to work, what do you do when sales is not good, etc

That is the reason why I suggest that if you are new to pushcart, share it with another vendor. In this way, you get to learn more things as well as to lower your overall costing. If you need further advise, you can always PM me and I will try my best to assist you. Good Luck

Hi JustLoveKidz,
Honestly, selling online is not an easy business to make money. If selling online is easy, everybody who has an outlet will opt for online business rather than to pay the high rental fees for their outlet.
Anyway, the most important thing with selling online is how to get the right traffic to your website. How do you promote your website?
The other thing is to know whether you have the products that attracts the large crowd. You might think that it is good product but other people might not agree with you. I would suggest that you try out selling your products at bazaars or flea market to gauge how well your product sells. Joining a bazaar or flea market is much cheaper than owning an outlet or even a pushcart. Also, you can always spread about your website thru bazaar or flea market. Nowadays there are a lot of events going on in Singapore so do try them out. Good Luck
