Top Online Gadget Stores or Shops in the Philippines

This is the age of mobile devices.  In recent years, smartphones and tablets have flooded the market because of high demand.  The platform that was pioneered by Apple when it introduced iOS has exploded with the rise in popularity of Google’s Android operating system.  Microsoft, on its part, has Windows Phone OS and has been aggressively pushing its own mobile platform with Windows phone and tablets.

One of the natural results of the rise in popularity of mobile computing is the explosion in popularity of the internet. A lot of things are possible through the internet and one of the activities that is now easily carried out is buying things online.

More things are being sold online as people are starting to trust online stores or shops more.   Amazon, eBay and Craigslist helped make online transactions common in the US.  In the Philippines, OLX (previously Sulit.Com), Ayosdito.ph and other online exchange sites have also helped educate the Filipinos about the merits of online transactions.

Among the things that probably take slower to mature in terms of online activity is the sale gadgets, primarily because buyers are parting with huge amounts of money with these kinds of transactions.  In the Philippines, online sale of gadgets are increasing, but a chunk of these sales are still done through meetups.  Regardless, the presence of online gadget stores or shops is clearly making online shopping convenient for Filipinos.  Furthermore, prices of gadgets on online shops are relatively cheaper than those sold on physical shops.   If you are new to online gadget shopping, it is important that you know your options and even more important that you know which ones can be trusted.

  • Rebecca

    I want to share my experience of buying online products.

    I bought beats and jansport from JOANA’S GADGET SHOP | joana marie. She said that all her items are original. When I bought it, I found out that it was fake. I texted and ask her again however she gives me an unprofessional response. I trusted her when she said that it is original. I am not trying to give you some bad reputation but my point is, just be honest with your buyers. She was very accommodating at first but after our transaction she was very rude. I hope all people know how to differentiate the fake and original so you won’t regret at the end.

  • AAaaple

    Galleon.ph is another good option. They sell gadgets too from US. They provide a good quality of servece.
    They inform you about your order from time to time.

    • Dragon Kid

      I don’t think so! They charge very much! Why don’t you just shop by yourself directly to the shop in USA. Then, to save money from shipping, use LBC Shipping Cart! It’s a forwarding company and they charge very cheap! 🙂
