    maganda mag shopping ng kahit ano kung mayaman ka.. hindi mo na iisipin ang gastos eh like mga hermes, dolce gabanna etc. it depends, kung pede mo naman bilhin yan dito sa pilipinas edi dito na lang pero may mga items na hindi mo mabibili sa pilipinas like final fantasy merchandise, dolce & gabanna and gucci clothes... i'm not sure kung may ganyan dito sa pilipinas, sa SM aura nga wala eh. baka sa resorts world meron. not sure.

    Online shopping is better. Because you can buy things not available in malls. The only downside is you have to wait a couple of weeks for it to arrive, if your item is from abroad.

    I recently bought an item from Ebay from a US merchant. It was delivered via FEDEX economy. It arrived within 2 weeks and delivered on my doorstep. I was surprised I didn't pay anything to customs. I guess customs don't tax you if your item is below P10,000, which is great. Weehee!! :D

    Hi! We're doing a survey on installments for online shopping. Would appreciate it if you can answer this short survey: https://goo.gl/forms/X1hnZ8Ug0hw3dcFD3

    Thanks!

    You can try fitting clothes in a mall and check if it suits you or not. Ditto with shoes.

    ang binibili ko lang online yung hindi available sa mga malls.

    Like books sa amazon, tools katulad nung binili kong canopy for my motorbike, sobrang init naman kasi ngayon. Nasusunog mukha ko kakamotor :glee:

    Tapoa toys na wala din sa malls.

    Clothes and shoes eh sa mall yan para nasusukat ko. May mga damit na kahit kasya sayo eh hindi bagay.
  • Kanya kanyang benefits lang talaga yan. Ang sa offline shopping, mache-check mo agad kung okay yung product. Kasi paminsan sa online, maganda nga sa model, di naman pala bagay sa yo. 
    But good thing about online shopping is saving time and money(pamasahe). Kaya dun ako sa option to return the product. 
    If you want, you can try out this code for discount: ZBAPSQMJ
    Especially pag tag-ulan, medyo nakakatamad bumiyahe kasi baha etc. mas okay ang online shopping. 
  • Depends on the situation and the item you want to buy. If there's no enough time to visit the physical store or if there if the item is rare, then I'll go for online shopping. Otherwise, will just visit department stores so you'll be able to check the items you are going to buy. There are instances kasi online in which the photo of the product is actually different from the actual product.

    I'm too praning and takot ma-scam to enjoy online shopping. Plus, I enjoy the shopping process. So I just browse online and then go to the mall to buy. If it's an item that could only be bought abroad, pinapabili ko na lang sa friends or family. 
  • pong_padourpong_padour Member ✭✭✭
    ^ Same here. Nakakatakot mahack ang account mo. Saka yung mga items baka iba naman ang ideliver sa yo. I still prefer seeing the items personally before purchasing it. On the other hand, naging suki na ko ng Expedia. I've booked on their website for my last 5 holidays abroad with my gf and the last time I went back to Philippines. 

  • Most of my purchases are done at offline shops and outlets,because it seems hard and time consuming to get refunded if you get a fake item from online shops. What about you fellows?
  • mcgirl04mcgirl04 ✭✭✭
    I do my shopping mostly online except for clothing and shoes that I wear to work.  I go to brick and mortar stores for electronics since it’s easier to return them if needed.
  • nikkilovenikkilove Member ✭✭✭
    I still prefer shopping in stores...ang nag eenjoy sa online yung hindi sanay mag shopping nung kabataan at paglaki nila...

    sa guys, yeah I understand, guys dont shop much anyway...my ex-bfs, pili ng sapatos, sukat, bayad, layas...lol!

    i love comapring shoes and clothes and fitting them one by one...i dont know who would give up on that...that's part of the purchasing experience.

    Is it okay to buy gadgets online? Are there any tips to consider when choosing a supplier and a product? 

    Anyway, I do have friends who experienced nightmare when they bought clothes online  =) Some of them even need to go to the tailor to get their dress fix.
  • Offline shopping parin!

    Yung satisfying na pakiramdam na bubuksan sa harapan mo yung kahon ng gadget or ng appliances na binili mo para macheck mo. HAHAHAHA

    Offline.

    Store warranties, getting to test or wear the items before buying.
  • Kent_21OKent_21O Member ✭✭✭✭
    Depende sa urgency 

    I shop mostly for spare parts, tools etc... Pag kelangan ko urgently, I drive sa pinakamalapit na store pero kung hindi naman, I buy it in Amazon or naghahanap ako ng mga good deal sa ebay and FB market place.
