Online shopping in Philippines? Well you're in luck because we have picked the best online shops for you.
Shopping online is fun and lush! If you haven’t join the craze yet, then you’re missing out. The niftiness of these web services makes it easierfor us to search and buy what we want without spending hours at public malls. However we also need to be smart and cautious because everything is done through the internet, especially when there’s online payment involved. It’s a good thing that Cash-On-Delivery (COD) payment is now being offered by the majority of online stores which builds trust among their customers. So without further ado, here are the Top 5 Online Shopping Sites in the Philippines! These stores have been chosen to be the most cosmic, exquisite and reliable.
You’ve got that right! Lazada is on top of our list because its online presence is just massive. Its website is state-of-the-art, comprehensive and secure. Lazada also operates in other countries and it offers millions of different kinds of products. Today when people say “Cash on delivery,” they think about Lazada. They also give loads of discounts, free coupons and promote sale events every now and then.
Though from time to time, you could be reading some bad news regarding its products and deliveries but for us it’s not a big deal because we only buy from high rated sellers on Lazada. This massive company that handles millions of transactions each day and manages thousands of employees and merchants, occasional errors are inevitable. I myself worked as a customer support representative for even larger companies like Microsoft, Amazon and Dell, and there’s never a day without a customer complaint. I can only suggest that Lazada should only support legit merchants and competent employees to increase customer satisfaction rate. So far, our experiences with Lazada had been great!

Shopee is a cool new online shop in the Philippines that quickly became so popular because of its fun way of advertising. It focuses on the mobile and social media marketplace. A lot of online sellers have switched over to Shopee because of the accessibility of its platform and lesser merchant business requirements. So now, it has become an enormous online store where you can find inexpensive but cool and trending new items to share with your friends. It’s like an online “Divisoria” which is mostly of class A products so I don’t expect too much about quality when I’m shopping at Shopee 🙂

Zalora like its sister-company Lazada, is no doubt the leading gear and apparel store in the country. They provide quick delivery and impressive customer service for all you fashionistas out there. Zalora has it all – a gigantic collection of the best imported and local brands for ladies, men, kids and even the elderly. I never forget to check out Zalora when it’s time to get some new sneakers. The store also offers tons of products on sale, free delivery, and cash on delivery payment.

Though this online shopping store and most of its sellers operates in China, I always buy on AliExpress due to the availability and afforadibility of products. Similarly to Lazada, this store is just massive (not to mention, it’s intended for wholesale). In fact, most Lazada sellers just get their products from Aliexpress. The prices are so cheap but the shipment will originate in China, which is of course, overseas delivery. So if you don’t care about the longer delivery times, feel free to shop on AliExpress with confidence!
|Delivery Time||Usually within 7-21 business days|
|Delivery Fees||FREE Shipping|
|Delivery Method||Door-to-door Delivery|
|Payment Methods||WebMoney, Credit/Debit Card, Western Union, MoneyGram, Bank Transfer, Alipay, Paypal|
This online store proudly claims that they sell products not available in the Philippines. They have a huge inventory of unique and eye-catching products coming from different countries (mostly from Amazon). Unfortunately, the products are not in hand. Only when an item is ordered that a request will be made for your product to be shipped internationally, which explains the long delivery time and expensive price.
|Delivery Time||6 to 12 business days via Air and 30 to 45 business days via Sea|
|Delivery Fees||Cost is calculated based on size/weight of total orders|
|Delivery Method||Door-to-door Delivery|
|Payment Methods||Credit/Debit Card, Paypal, Bank Deposit via BDO, Dragonpay and Cash on Delivery|
