3. OLX Philippines
OLX Philippines is previously known as Sulit.com.ph, and later merged with another classified ad site ayosdito.ph. OLX is actually a classified ads sites and transactions is made between members rather than by the company who owns the site.
Although OLX suffered major setback after it bought Sulit and Ayosdito, the site is still popular especially among car enthusiast.
But since it is a member-to-member transaction, extreme caution is suggested when doing a transaction.
4. eBay Philippines
The father of all online shops, eBay, is officially operating here in the Philippines. They sell fashion products, gadgets, toys, home improvement items and more in a bidding system.
Most sellers on eBay Philippines accepts several payment options such as bank deposits but eBay itself only accepts credit and debit cards.
Ebay is also a classified auction site but buyers and sellers are protected by the website.
Amazon, the world’s biggest online marketplace after it surpassed eBay a couple of years ago, is not really operating officially in the Philippines, but a lot of Filipinos and foreigners are buying goods through it.
Since the shipping fee to the Philippines can range from ₱500 to more than a thousand Pesos, many Amazon customers choose the service of Johnny Air where their items are sent to the Johnny Air office in New York then forwarded here in the Philippines.
Some items also are purchased through neighboring countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, and Japan.

It’s the online store where you can find inexpensive but cool and trending new items that allows you to share with your friends and the social community.
