Bought so many things on line over the past 10 years including clothes, shoes, electronics. It's a matter of comfort, burned at least twice. 2 Fake Jordan shoes at 2 different occasions and at a regular price, hindi pa sale. Also wrong shoe sizes and golf clubs that I didn't like. Use credit card all the time and with Amex, you get all your money back. Makes on line shopping more comfortable. For really expensive designer items, LV, Burberry, Chanel ect, will be better off going to their store at the mall, too much money to lose on a fake item. Good luck.

i am an online shopping virgin. having missed out on a shoe that i was eyeing, i am now turning to online shopping as an alternative. problem is, i am a bit skeptical.

i've heard so much about amazon and it's being a legit place to purchase. i however am skeptical about all the other less known online sites offering better prices.

i opened this topic hoping that those who've bought stuff via the internet would post what site did they purchase from, what did they purchase, and what was their experience.


Always go to a reputable site for shoes. Eastbay o kaya Finish Line, Sports Authority. So far ok naman sa Amazon, I just bought a Toshiba Libretto last month, pero tignan mo yung transactions made at saka yung rating, pag daan-daan na transaction at multiple stars rating likely legit, but amazon is the broker, pagbumili ka, yung store pa rin kausap mo hindi amazon. Basahin mo mabuti yung retun policy, pag wala, delikado yan, pag walang nakalagay na guaanteed na authentic, delikado yan, pag walang legit na phone number at reply by email lang, red flag din yan. Pag ginagamit nila eh hindi UPS o Fedex or Airborne, delikado din yan. Pag masyadong mura, napakaraming size and color available eh mahirap hanapin na model ang shoes, delikado din yan.

Use credit card na may protection, Good luck!

I've bought several items using eBay,
opting to pay via PayPal for overseas sellers.

For local eBay sellers, it's a matter of trust, and feedback points. :)

I've also bought from ThinkGeek using JohnnyAirCargo (JAC);
For its price, JAC is rather fast and reliable.
I might consider buying FleshLight using JAC next time.

I've also bought books from Amazon;
for your sanity and anxiety, opt for faster though more expensive shipping.
Nevertheless, I never had any problems with slow or fast shipping options with Amazon.
Transacted using credit card.

Whenever possible, always request for tracking numbers.

I've also bought legit software licenses online.

Make sure that there is a security sa online shop. May SSL security. Mapapansin mo may podlock sa URL, HTTPS imbes na HTTP

Before, loong time ago, I use E-2-Door for hard to find books, kaso mahal ng delivery at mayayari ka sa TAXes

Then ngayon may alternative na lalo na pag gusto mo bumili from US. You can use JAC, Johnny Air Cargo.

Im an online shopper too kc they usually hold sales. Bought an oakley from oakleyvault for less than 3k pesos. Tyagaan lng sa hintayan. Amazon is ok kaya lng gaya nga sbi nila di nla maguarantee authenticity ng product. Nakakita aq gucci and lv na bag. Super cheap and sobrang prehas ng price. Nkpgchat aq sa amazon support kc gsto ko ireport na possible fake. Di daw nla mcocontrol un. Should liase directly with merchant. Pero sb nila they will refund all costs including shipping if its not authentic. Di ko na tinuloy kc sobrang hassle pa ibalik balik mbuti sna kng asa states ako.

Does amazon ship books to Manila? can i use my credit card to pay?

Or would it be cheaper to just buy books here?

Thanks.


Yes you can use your credit card to pay. Amazon ships book to Manila. More often books like novels or of general topics are more expensive from Amazon when you include the shipping cost. But for hard to find books, you will find it cheaper than if you place an order from say, National Bookstore or Fully Booked.

You have options to choose for delivery:
1) Have it deliver to Philippines by Amazon
-with this option you have to be wary of the customs. sometimes in some places they don't care but in Quezon City, from my experience the customs do care especially about how much money they can extort from you :lol: you can always try. if that failed, leads us to option 2
2) Have Amazon deliver it to Johnny Air Cargo (New York)
-with this option, you can do away with the customs and know how much you really need to pay. much faster delivery which takes a week compared to two weeks with option 1.

Enjoy online shopping. If you are a regular shopper in Amazon, you will be entitled to join MyHabit.com, where they have items on sale for everyone, most notable for women, every day.

question regarding JAC and myshippingbox. once it reaches the philippines, napapatungan ba to ng sobrang laking presyo ng customs? or lusot na sa customs to? can anyone kindly give me more information regarding these two services?
i wanna use it para magonline shopping sana sa states, but im afraid that if i use their services, pag pasok sa customs biglang dodoble yung presyo?
