E-commerce, during the era or the age of the Internet and in our increasingly wired economy, e-commerce has become as relevant as real commerce and is the future of business itself as more and more people and consumers are discovering the benefits and merits of doing business transactions over the internet. On the local e-commerce front, there is a recent newcomer that has made a lot of impression and impacted the local e-commerce economy in more ways than the others. That online shopping company is Lazada PH . The company has done so much in promoting e-commerce in the country and raises the level of awareness among consumers on the wonderful things that shopping online can bring.
The company allowed local consumers the amazon style of online shopping which is something that a lot of consumers have never experienced before. Online shopping has been popular for the longest time in the Philippines but on a different level and facet. The most popular way to shop online is through online market place websites like sulit.com and ebay.ph where goods and products are being sold by individual online sellers and not by the company itself. This has been the kind of online shopping that most local consumers have grown accustomed to because it is very simple and very easy to do. I have had a fair share of successful online purchases through this method, however, as simple as it may seem, there is still a considerable amount of effort that needs to be exerted.
Like for instance, if you are dealing with a seller, you still have to go out there physically to get the item. Although there are sellers and most of them perhaps offer a way to have the item shipped out, I stayed away from that route on all of my transactions as I do not have that much confidence in having an individual seller ship the item out without having any physical interface. When I buy an item from an online seller, I like to meet him or her personally so I could scrutinize the item thoroughly before handing over my payment because returns are usually not a simple process when you are dealing with an individual online seller because there are no guarantees on what they are selling unlike in big retail companies like Lazada Ph where there is a structured way and an established procedure in dealing with item returns. That is why it is very crucial to inspect the item thoroughly whenever you are dealing with an individual online seller. The difference that shopping in websites like Lazada is the convenience, everything happens online and all you have to do is to wait for your item to be delivered. Plus the items are always brand new which means that you are guaranteed to receive a premium quality item and if there are problems when it comes to workmanship then like what I have said it is easy to process a return since there are established return procedures that the company enforces. In that regard, it is no surprise that Lazada leads the way and has influenced the local e-commerce economy in so many different ways.
