Best Local Shopping Apps for Parents

Online shopping is the most convenient way to buy consumer goods without leaving the comfort of our own homes. As such, it doesn’t come as a surprise that many Filipinos are turning to the Internet for shopping and many local online shops—with mobile apps!—are popping up here and there. This is especially helpful for busy parents who would do anything to skip the traffic going to the mall and use the extra time for work, kids, or sleep.

 

Here are some of the best local shopping apps that any parent is sure to love.

 

Lazada

Available on iOS and Android

The biggest e-commerce website in the country to date, Lazada is quickly becoming the Philippines’ Amazon.com. They sell everything from 52-inch LED televisions and smartphones to gas stoves and coffeemakers, pillows and beddings, children’s clothes and baby care items. Their payment options include credit/debit card payments, bank transfers, and cash-on-delivery.

 

Zalora

Available on iOS and Android

Zalora, dubbed as Asia's Online Fashion Destination, carries clothes, shoes, bags and accessories. If you’re a parent to shop online for authentic branded kids’ clothing and shoes, Zalora is the place to go. The app/site offers secure payment options (via card or cash-on-delivery) and if you’re worried about getting wrong sizes, they offer free and easy returns within 30 days after delivery.

 

eBay

Available on iOS and Android

eBay may be a US-based website/app company, but many Filipinos are buying and selling goods in this site. From children’s clothing to home appliances, to kitchen tools and dinnerwares, eBay is a goldmine of great finds at great prices. Pro tip: filter your search to products for sale from the Philippines only to ensure you won’t get charged for international shipping and tax fees!

 

OLX.ph

Available on iOS and Android

While OLX.ph is not an e-commerce site like the rest of the apps on this list, it is still definitely one of the best local shopping apps available to Filipinos. It has millions of users registered on the site to buy and/or sell both brand new and pre-loved items and lets buyers transact directly with sellers to make a deal (from payment to shipping) electronically.

What is your parenting style?
