Frequently Asked Questions

The item I want is out of stock/not found on the website, when will you be restocking it?

The majority of our inventory consists of limited edition styles, closeouts, discontinued styles, and hard-to-find styles. Quantities are limited and the option of restocking is not readily available. We recommend that if you see something you like, place your orders as soon as possible!

Do you have a physical store front?

Currently, we only have a 'virtual' catalog, i.e. online store. Our entire product line is online, we do not have a physical store front. Having a store front will incur substantially higher overhead cost which in turn would mean higher prices for everyone. Our intention is to provide the lowest possible prices with excellent customer service and support.

How can I contact SingaporeVault.com for additional assistance?

Why are prices of products so cheap in SingaporeVault.com?

First, we do not operate a physical store, hence lesser overheads, means more savings passed onto you. That also means that if you want to view any items, you will have to check them out in local retail stores.

Second, we import our products from overseas directly. Lesser middleman, means more savings for everyone.

Third, we deal mainly in cash or direct bank transfer, hence there are no extra debit/credit card fees to be paid.

Fourth, we do not employ unnecessary employees, hence lesser payroll to take care of.

Fifth, we try our best to bring in only products/brands that we are confident we are able to price among the lowest in Singapore.

What is SingaporeVault.com Layaway Purchase Program?

Layaway Purchase Program allow individuals a simple method to purchase item(s) without paying the entire cost at once. However, rather than take the item home and repay the debt on a regular schedule, as in most installment plans or hire purchases, our Layaway Purchase Program customer does not receive the item until the item(s) is/are completely paid for.

There are no extra fees/surcharges involved with our Layaway Purchase Program. When using this program, the item is kept in storage until the payments are completed, which has a deadline of 90 days from initial “layaway”.

For detailed payment information, please visit: Layaway Purchase Program

What are PreOrders/Mass Orders?

Currently, we are unable to take orders for products NOT LISTED on the website until further notice.

Mass Orders are orders for products not listed on the website which are ordered in bulk for a group of individual buyers.

Orders usually take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months to arrive, depending on manufacturer. We are unable to control the delivery time/schedule. We can only try our best to accommodate your request. Order only if you can afford to wait. Patience is needed.

We will require a minimal of SGD $50 to $100 non-refundable deposit into our POSB account when such ordering takes place. Take note that this is not because we do not trust you but once we place the order, we will not be able to return the goods. This is usually collected so as to ensure genuine interest of purchase by you. There will be no refunds or cancellations on such orders as full payment of the product has already been made by us on your behalf. The item may be backordered on the manufacturer's end which is out of our control. Hence, patience would be required for such orders. Therefore, REFUNDS ARE NOT POSSIBLE.

In order to receive your deposit, you will know our bank account number and that would give you sufficient information to prevent us from running away with your deposits.

What is Recommended Retail Selling Price (RRSP)?

Recommended Retail Selling Prices are usually set by the manufacturer/distributor. Hence, when retail shops sell these products, they are required to follow the stated standard price list as given by the distributor.

We do not need to follow this requirement as we parallel import our products direct from overseas and are not bound by the local distributor. Hence, we can sell our products at lower prices.

Do you price match?

Unfortunately, we do not price match any other website.

All prices listed are non-negotiable.

Why was the item in my shopping cart no longer available at checkout?

The inventory on our site is live and reflects what is in stock at that moment. Placing an item in your shopping cart does not guarantee your right to purchase that item. Until you have completed the checkout process, another customer may purchase the item even if it is in your cart. If that happens, you will receive a message on the shopping cart page informing you that the item is no longer available and that you should remove it from your cart.

Why is the sale item that I had in my shopping cart yesterday no longer on sale today?

Your shopping cart will not secure sale prices for you. If you place an item in your cart at a sale price, the price will change once the sale has expired. We recommend that if you see something you like, place your orders as soon as possible!

Do you charge sales tax on any item?

Authenticity Questions (Real or Fake?)

Please read our feedbacks/testimonials from previous buyers. We have been in business since 2005. If any of our products had been fake, we will not be here standing strong. And more importantly, if we are selling fake stuff, we will not be insanely selling so many different fake items. Think about it, before asking. (Read: What is Buyer Feedback/Testimonial?)

Do a google search on "Singapore Vault", "O-Pimp", "OakleyPimp" or "singaporevault". We are pretty sure you will see all the related articles and posts about our website and services.

If the testimonials/feedback from our buyers still do not satisfy your concerns/worries, no worries. You can still meet up with us and check the item yourself BUT PLEASE DO NOT AND I REPEAT, DO NOT bother asking us "Are your products authentic/genuine?". It's pointless and annoying because you know our answer. ALL OUR PRODUCTS ARE AUTHENTIC AND GENUINE. We do not sell fake stuff. Do your own research before meeting us to check out our products.

We offer guaranteed authentic products or 100% money back guarantee. Please read our Safe Shopping Guarantee

Lastly, if your curiosity/concerns are still not satisfied, there is nothing we can do about it. You can always purchase from the retail stores in Singapore selling our products at full retail prices.

Exchanges | Refunds

We have a final sale policy. No refunds, and no exchanges policy. All items are sold AS-IS. All sales are Final. The reason is that we promise all our customers brand new products. If we accept refunds or exchanges, the items will no longer be brand new in box. We try our very best to be fair to everyone.

No warranty, or manufactures' extended warranty is expressed or implied because our products are parallel imported, we are selling below RRSP and hence, unable to provide official receipts for warranty purposes.

No refunds or exchanges or replacements are allowed UNLESS during the meet-up for collection of your order, when you do an IMMEDIATE and THROUGH inspection, you notice any damages or flaws to the product. Once we part, the transaction will be considered final and completed.

For product(s) specially brought in for you, a minimal deposit is usually collected so as to ensure genuine interest of purchase by you. There will be no refunds or cancellations on such orders as full payment of the product has already been made by us on your behalf. The item may be backordered on the manufacturer's end which is not in our control. Hence, patience would be required for such orders. Therefore, REFUNDS ARE NOT POSSIBLE. Exchanges will be made available for items found to be damaged during meet-up for collection.

Warranty Questions

SingaporeVault.com do not provide official receipts for your purchases, hence, manufacturers' limited warranty may not be valid. But take note that our prices are usually 20% to 40% lower than local retail store prices, hence the savings should more than offset any cost of warranty.

All products sold on our website are guaranteed authentic and genuine. Hence, repair work can still be requested at the manufacturer's respective repair centre if ever needed. Cost of repair may vary. Note that after the manufacturers' limited warranty expires (which is usually 1 year), you will still need to pay for these repair services anyway. Take good care of your purchases and repair services will not be required.

Always compare the savings you get when you purchase from us and the available limited warranty when you purchase full price from the store and see which one is more beneficial to you. This way, you can decide if you want the savings or the limited warranty.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Oakley sunglasses/RX frames no longer comes with lifetime warranty. Oakley only provides a one year limited warranty if your purchase was made from a local retail store that provides a official sales receipt. Oakley warranty does not cover scratched lenses or damages due to your own fault.

If ever needed and if we are able to help, we might be able to send the item to a different country's repair centre for cheaper repair. Contact us for more details if ever needed.
