I have used Shopee and Lazada, the delivery time isn't the best but at least you can get things that are not available here in the provinces.

eBay Philippines does exist but the number of categories and products is limited.

You can also order from Amazon for delivery to the Philippines but shipping and tariff charges can really increase the expense if you are buying a single relatively inexpensive item.  Buying multiple items that are consolidated into a single shipment will make them more affordable on a per item basis.

I use Lazada regularly. It has always proved reliable, if quite slow. Especially if coming from China.

Some suppliers on Amazon do ship to the Philippines, but I also use a company called Shipping Cart (ShippingCart.com) which is a subsidiary of LBC, a phils courier company.

They have a receiving address in the US and the UK and you can send anything you purchase online (not just Amazon, Ebay etc but any online retailer) in the US or the UK to them and they will ship it to your address in phils. You can ship either by air or sea.

I have found them very easy to use, relatively fast and very reliable. It is not cheap, certainly the airfreight option, but not exhorbitant either. I have used them several times for small, light weight items I have needed and been unable to find here. Heavier, bulkier items probably would better be shipped by sea but I have not used that option yet.

They will hold items in 'your cart' until you wish to ship them so you can consolidate several items together to make it more cost effective.

yeah there is. You could try using Galleon.ph. They can buy the item you want and they can ship it right at your doorstep

I use Lazeda never had any problems we have a regular delivery driver . Fast delivery often within 2 days but it pays to always check the profile page of the seller as many are based in China,  bought many things from Lazeda , tools,gadgets,electronics all delivered working and well packed and in new condition

I've ordered 100 plus items from Lazada, I can only think of 2 orders that I wasn't satisfied with.:thumbsup:

We've used Lazada a fair amount, everything ordered arrived ok but have had trouble with items not arriving from eBay Philippines so don't use that anymore.

I used the shipping cart deal ONCE. Ordered some stuff from Amazon in the US. Mostly books. The cost for airfreight is crazy. But it did work as advertised.:mellow:
