Hi Heather, Actually the *main* national language in Singapore is English, the majority of the local population (around 70%) are Chinese Singaporean, and most don't speak Malay, only the Malays and the older/elder Chinese folk know how to speak Malay :) The Chinese people in neighbouring Malaysia do

Thanks for clarification. I know the incomes and GDP per capita are some of highest in the world. It's a great country. I have only been there once about 5 years ago. Had a great time! Need to make it back to asia in general soon.

Yes, I think Singapore would be one of the top countries in T2 for IM, along with the likes of Switzerland, Hong Kong, Sweden, Denmark, Norway etc :) Some countries could join T1 in future if suddenly lots more people become interested in IM or there is a population spike (which is currently ongoing yearly in Singapore with many foreigners coming in). Right now I think the T1 is pretty settled. Singapore is close though.

Singapore will never be considered T1 because the national language is Malay. While there are lots of English speakers and money there in order for it to be considered T1 the national language has to be English.

Hi Heather,

Actually the *main* national language in Singapore is English, the majority of the local population (around 70%) are Chinese Singaporean, and most don't speak Malay, only the Malays and the older/elder Chinese folk know how to speak Malay :) The Chinese people in neighbouring Malaysia do know how to speak Malay.

Malay is one of the national languages, along with English, Chinese and Malay. The Chinese know how to speak English and Chinese, while the Malays know how to speak English and Malay, and the Indians know how to speak Indian and English. The English language brings the cultures together so everyone gets along and racial harmony is emphasized very importantly. All the males have to serve in the army or police for two years so we know how to use guns but we are not allowed to own them.

The national anthem is Malay, because the writer of the anthem was Malay, but Malays make up around 20% of the local population.

English is taught in all schools, and anyone who doesn't know English will be left behind in Singapore :) But one can survive without Malay or Chinese being their first language.

Singapore has one of the highest incomes and GDP per capita in the world (look it up! :)), it is the most developed country in South East Asia, but I do agree that it is not a T1 country in Internet Marketing according to most people, because Singaporeans tend to be more demanding of the quality of their products and services, which can lead to more complaints. We are a very demanding lot, we are known for complaints even among locals :) And also the population is small so it may not merit one of the top 6 spots, but it is a beautiful country.

I am Singaporean.

Cheers!

Fabian

I agree. What you said makes perfect sense!! Alot of buyers in Singapore too:)

I get lots of buyers from Germany, France, India (yes, India!), Thailand but the MOST sales come from countries where English is the official language and median incomes are at the upper end of the scale.

yes, i agree with Brandon. Singapore should consider as Tier 1 as I have seen many solo vendors and buyers are from Singapore.

What Kay Gambrell said (US,CA,NZ,UK, AU). Although IE does count as Tier 1, most CPA only work with (US,CA,NZ,UK, AU) for their offers

Also I think Singapore should also be in T1 , just my opinion though

Your missing IE for Ireland :)

Ireland is awesome I hear. lol I would love to add them to the list, but most CPA networks, tracking software, ect do not include them in the list for top tier. I tried to send top tier traffic to a major network and I included Ireland and they rejected it, so now I only include 5 in my top tier list. Have you had this experience?

T1 stands for top tier, referring to top tier countries (US,CA,NZ,UK, AU). The higher the percentage of T1 traffic the better;). I hope this helps!
