  1. Hey Fehl, a great article. I’ve been in the Philippines 14 years now and I had only ever heard of a few of these companies. I’m sure my credit card companies will thnak you for this ;-).

    It used to be extremely difficult to get items shipped here from Amazon US, but now they seem to have an overseas shipping partner and most Amazon pages have a little note under the items that will ship to the Philippines. (if you are using your Philippines address as the “ship to” address).

    A great convenience and not too expensive at all. They charge a deposit for the anticipated amount of Philippine customs due and so far almost all of that has been refunded to me. Very fast service..

    • Hi, David 🙂 Yes, Amazon is the best worldwide and I wish there would be Amazon Ph soon. Jeff Bezos, please make that happen 🙂 Right now, Lazada is still the best online store in the Philippines in terms of visitors and local buyers. Let’s see if Shop SM could change that status 🙂
