How to Place an Order at Lazada Using PayPal: A Step-by-Step Guide
I’ve been using my PayPal account when placing orders at Lazada.com.ph, and so far, they had been very efficient. All transactions went well except with the delivery part though. But that’s another story to tell. For this blog post, I will be giving you a step-by-step guide on how to use your own PayPal account to pay Lazada and have the items delivered at your doorstep.
This is presuming that you already have an account with Lazada complete with your personal and contact information, billing address, as well as delivery address. Your billing address at Lazada, however, need not to be the same with that of your PayPal account. This is because you can buy at Lazada using another's account, whether it's PayPal, credit card, debit card, atm and the like as long as you can provide the necessary details.
So let's get started.

- PayPal Philippines : Send Money, Pay Online or Set Up a Merchant Account
PayPal Philippines is the faster, safer way to send money, make an online payment, receive money or set up a merchant account.
PayPal is a very good option for online shoppers who do not have any physical credit or debit card to use like me. I have a debit card but it's a virtual card sponsored by Globe. It's called GCash American Express Virtual Card. I'd like to apply for a local credit or debit card but there's just so many requirements so I chose that of Globe. I will be talking more about this Globe prepaid virtual card on a separate post soon.

So how do use your PayPal to buy at Lazada?
Find the products you like to order and add them to your cart. You can use the Search Box or the Category Menu for a faster search. If you signed up to their daily newsletter, you'll be given updates and links as to the items on sale so you can go through them.
If you are decided on what to buy, click on the Cart button on the top right corner of the page so you can review your order. In my case, I ordered two products, so there’s two items on my cart. And, there's a shipping charge of 99 pesos since the total price of my order did not reach 1,000 pesos. Lazada only offers free shipping for all orders worth ₱ 1,000 and above.
Read the complete Lazada rules on shipment and delivery here:
Click Proceed to Checkout to pay. You will be presented with 7 options. Since I paid using PayPal on my previous orders, the PayPal option is automatically highlighted and chosen by the system. Otherwise, just choose PayPal.
If you have a coupon or voucher to use, go to Order Summary and under that, you will see "Do you have a voucher? Apply". Just click apply and put in the code.
For this transaction below, Lazada gave me a voucher code because they failed to delivery my previous order. But of course, the worth of every voucher may different. In my case, it's a 200 peso worth voucher.
Click PLACE YOUR ORDER. A small box will show saying you have to wait as they process your order. You will then be routed to this page where you need to type the email associated to your PayPal account and your password.
If you are using a personal computer, tick the box below where it says, “This is not a shared computer” so the system can choose the best protection for your PayPal transaction.
Click Log In. The system will then authenticate the information.
Right after, you will be required to review your PayPal request. If everything is correct, click Pay Now.
If the transaction is successful, you’ll see this “congratulations” page. Since I am located outside Metro Manila, the delivery period is 7-9 days. You will also receive an email and text confirmation.
You will then wait for your orders to be delivered. When they are on their way, Lazada will let you know through text and email. You can also track the delivery via LBC page.
Provincial deliveries will usually take 3 to 5 days, depending on the availability of your item and the proximity of the contracted vendor or supplier. Because if the supplier is just around Leyte, you can get the item 2 or 3 days after payment.
And oh by the way! I’ve been following Lazada and it seems like they always have discount promos everyday so I suggest that you also subscribe to their newsletter for regular updates.
If you’re a first time subscriber, you’ll get a ₱ 200 voucher for your first order. And, if you place an order through their mobile app, you’ll get a ₱ 250 welcome voucher for a minimum amount of purchase. Awesome, right?
Lazada is indeed a very cost-effective and efficient one-stop online shop.
