How we started...
Established since 2004, WhyMobile Pte Ltd, formerly WhyMobile Telecommunications (Singapore)
LLP, is a licensed retailer of new and used mobile phones in Singapore.
It started when four friends got together after being scammed and decided to create an honest
business of their own.
Our transparent and competitive pricing policy remains our promise to all our customers.
WhyMobile believes in creating value through transparent and competitive pricing. Our margins
typically average 1-3%.
In order to keep our prices low, early versions of our website made payment transaction fees
(e.g. PayPal, NETS, Credit Card) transparent and transferred these costs to our customers.
Instead of padding prices to absorb varying fees (up to 5%), customers can choose to pay
using cheaper methods, e.g. Cash or NETS.
Since 2018, we have encouraged the use of PayNow in line with Singapore's Smart Nation initiative
which incurs no transaction fees.
