Here's the big question, "Does Amazon provide free shipping to Singapore?" The answer is a big "YES," though there are certain limitations and most products sold by third party are excluded.
It’s really a good thing that Amazon.com now offers free shipping to Singapore. Considering the fact that international export is costly, we are greatful to have this kind of service. The delivery is called Free AmazonGlobal Shipping. To be eligible for this, the total amount of your orders must exceed $125 (SG$160) and the weight must not exceed 20 lbs. Also, the product must be allowed to ship to Singapore.
To easily find out whether a product can be shipped to Singapore, I kindly suggest to set your shipping address first.
Just log in to Amazon.com and enter Your Account page, then select Manage Address Book. There you can add or edit your shipping address. Make sure to set your Singapore address as the default.
After doing that, Amazon should now be able to prompt you whether an item “ships to Singapore” or “does not ship to Singapore.” The screenshot below indicates an item that ships to Singapore.
Otherwise, if the item you desire does not ship to Singapore, there’s no need to worry because you can always use a Freight Forwarding service that provides a virtual U.S. address and cheap shipping costs to Singapore.

Most products sold and fulfilled by Amazon will ship to Singapore. Even other third party sellers can actually ship directly to Singapore. See the Screenshots below:
The above item is sold and fulfilled by Amazon - No Import Fees Deposit & FREE Shipping to Singapore.
The above item is sold by a Third Party merchant and provides FREE Shipping directly to Singapore.
Upon checkout you should now have these delivery options – FREE AmazonGlobal Shipping or FREE Standard Shipping
Another thing you should remember; if the total amount of your orders exceed SGD 400 (around 290 USD), a small amount of Import Fees Deposit will incur. So if you’re buying multiple items, try to split them into two separate orders if possible.
Well that’s basically it! The delivery from Amazon to Singapore usually comes earlier than the estimated time. I always receive the package in just 1 or 2 weeks to at my doorsteps!
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and start your shopping at Amazon.com right now.
