I'm increasingly buy things on-line cuz of the convenience.

And I have also discovered that if you buy airline and hotel tickets through the internet, it's CHEAPER pa!  Forgive me if I'm a little behind, but it's a whole new world for me!

What about you guys?  What other things do you buy on-line?  Is it always cheaper?  What is the 'Amazon' here in the Philippines?  Can we buy books on-line too?

Have you guys tried the 'groupon' sites here too?

Thanks!

I buy my music needs especially strings online. If I buy locally, the same item would cost 4-5 times the price! Plus there's no shipping charge, or even if it has, it's very minimal.

And yes, I buy my airfare online. Plus you get to earn miles which you can use later and claim a free trip! I'm claiming that free trip this year :D

@ RP, I usually buy from amazon website, at first, i used only my credit card in buying plane tickets but nowadays lagi na ako sa amazon website, kasi maraming mura at may mga books na 2nd hand kang nabibili but in a good condition pa. convenient at tracking order number ako na inganyo plus you can read reviews/comments of a certain product that you want to buy. nakakapilli ka nang mabuti and you're just sitting down inside your room.

i buy books and gadgets kasi mura at marami kang mapag pipilian plus nababasa mo mga online comments/reviews of the product atleast you have idea kung sulit ba kung bibilhin mo.

I buy most stuffs online. I live in Seoul where in most people talaga buy stuffs online kasi mas convenient, so I buy books, kikay stuffs, even my supplies for my shop, also groceries and electronics.

Sa Pinas usually plane fares and kikay stuffs ang binibili ko online~

Mostly airline (domestic) tickets, my company take charge of my international flights( privilege as agreed by the contract) and DVD movies, that was my first time and it was very convenient.

Thanks for all the responses guys!

Akoni, I'll try to buy books too.  Does it come out cheaper even with shipping?

Plane tickets, Services from Odesk, Hostings/Domains and a lot more. Convenience is one of the main reason.

richpulubi: Welcome to the world of online shopping!

I buy anything online - plane/train/bus tickets, concert tickets, clothes, books, small ticket electronics, cosmetics and yes, even the vouchers from group-buying sites.

Biggest thing I purchased (literally in size and in terms of money) was a laptop. I didn't take chances with that and only considered buying it from tried-and-tested websites like Amazon US. I had a relative bring it to the Philippines although you can have items bought from the US shipped straight to the Philippines now (without having to go through customs) via Johnny Air in Megamall.

Items online are not always cheaper. Sometimes, they even come out more expensive. But if you take into consideration the time, gas, money and effort you would've spent if you shopped for these items "in the real world", then I guess it comes out even. Books are also not always cheaper but for bookies like myself, finding that elusive title is worth paying almost any price!

We don't have an Amazon yet, but I knows lots of people who deal on eBay Philippines and Multiply. They're not 100% trustworthy like Amazon though so you gotta be smart in shopping at those sites.

As for group buying websites, Fitz Villafuerte of Ready to Be Rich compiled this helpful list of verified, unverified, active and inactive group buying sites. There are many that are offering summer packages now, you might want to browse those. :)

@ RP, oo minsan may mura kahit na include yong shipping,pero yong mga sikat talaga na mga libro
pariho lang kaya minsan tinitingnan ko kung may nag offer na secondhand at good condition, kung walang offer kino consolidate ko na sa ibang binili ko para isang shipping lang.

anyway ma compare mo naman ang presyo kasi bago ka magbayad nakalagay naman ang shipping cost.

I sometimes buy at ebay, but deal only with international sellers with verified Powerseller status. I pay via PayPal. So far all transactions were successful.

I also buy stuffs online, most of them books and e-books, for personal development and to enhance my knowledge of Internet marketing. I usually buy them through SFI's online store TripleClicks.com. Since I am an affiliate of SFI, it's like buying from my own store. :D
