Top Online Shopping Websites in the Philippines
Let's start shopping!
Don't you wanna just lie on your bed and shop your goodies online? If you are a 'house-folk' like me who is not comfortable shopping on actual stores and to be honest find it quite stressing (pardon ladies I'm a guy), then that would be a sure yes. Online shopping websites enable internet users to buy their ever so desired items in the comfort of their own homes. Just search it, click it, view it, add-to-cart it then confirm it. That easy people. How awesome was that, huh? Some sites actually have a COD (Cash on Delivery) payment option too, which is A-W-E-S-O-M-E! So let's get started on the list don't we?
Where should I start with this site's awesomeness? Oh I know, they have the COD payment option people! For those who are not familiar with COD I'll try to explain it shortly. Cash on Delivery means that you can pay the the product you ordered only when the courier actually had deliver it directly to your house. That is very useful for a student like me who simply doesn't have a credit card that most online shopping websites usually require. Zalora offers a wide variety of products but they specialize on fashion and sportswear for both men and women. You basically earn yourself a discount of Php 200 on your first purchase just by subscribing on their newsletter and all orders over Php 1000 will be shipped free of charge. You can even return the product if you don't want it and you will not spend anything for it. They handle the shipment fee on product returns. Another remarkable thing is you can earn some money using this site by referring the site to another potential customer! Yes, you heard it right. Just apply for their Brand Ambassador Program and give yourself a chance to earn money by simply referring a customer to purchase a product by using your affiliate code. You earn 20% of the total money spent by the customer for every successful referral and in return the customer receive a 15% discount. All in all, the best online shopping site in the Philippines in my opinion.
Well, if you are looking for everything packed in a single online shop then Lazada is your answer. Lazada has one of the widest range of of products an online shopping website offer in our country. From fashion to to electronic appliances, they got all you covered. To be exact, they currently have 11 unique product categories available and that is sure a wide variety. The best thing I like is they process and deliver your goodies rather quickly. I ordered once and it took only 2 days for me to receive it. That was done real quick considering that I am from Batangas. Another wonderful feature the site have, just like Zalora, is the zoom capability when viewing products. Meaning, you can easily see scan the product closely and see how it really look. Overall, an absolutely nice place to start shopping online.
Tomato might not offer the widest array of products, but I got to say, they made sure it's affordable. The website's focus on on fashion retail. Their line of products includes tops and bottoms for both men and women. They also sell fashion accessories. Oh man their watches! I really fell in love with Tomato watches because aside from being affordable they have some which are super stylish as well. You can also ask them to customize some watches for you called SWAP watch which are really cute. It is perfect for giveaways because you can buy them in bulk. Oh and they have a free gift wrap option so you can just sent it straight to your friend during her birthday. Payment options include bank deposit, G-Cash, credit/debit card and Dragonpay.
