As the pandemic amplified, the offline to online retail innovation flourished and helped shoppers save more money with services like Buyandship Philippines, a global shipping service that promotes cross-border ecommerce for shoppers who wish to shop across the US, UK, Italy, Canada, Australia, Japan, Korea, Hongkong, Thailand, Taiwan, and Indonesia.
Recently, Buyandship conducted a survey in Asian countries, and the survey revealed that cross-border purchase is 35%, 33.1%, and 32% cheaper than local purchase in Malaysia, the Philippines, and Singapore, respectively. In terms of product categories, 68% of Filipino users claimed that the products sold on overseas websites are not available locally; 66% of Malaysian users and 35.2% of Singaporean users reported the same situation as well.
Philippine consumers prefer cross-border purchases over local purchases on branded goods not only due to limited product availability in the local market but also because of huge discounts on sale items and on shipping services. Buyandship’s co-founder Sheldon Li said, “Buyandship is always dedicated to providing users with the latest online shopping discount and offer through different platforms. At the moment, our social media has 1 million views every week; more than 50,000 active users in our group on Facebook; and over 300 users generated content (UGC) per week. Buyandship will strive to optimize the price comparison system in the future and this enables us to provide more information on price differentials.”
Many holiday deals are still up and offer great discounts as the year-end sale is fast approaching. Filipinos can now shop and ship from overseas-based online stores like US stores Amazon, eBay, and Walmart; Korea’s WeVerse and KTown4U; UK’s John Lewis and Marks & Spencer; Canada’s Lululemon and China’s Taobao and Alibaba; Japan’s Rakuten and Uniqlo, Italy’s Polene and Yoox; Hongkong’s Yoho and Zara; Thailand’s Thann and Australia’s Ugg.
