Still a skeptical online shopper? 4 reasons why you should add mobile phones and gadgets to your shopping cart


MANILA, Philippines — Years ago, if you asked anyone about online shopping, you probably would have gotten answers like, “Legit ba yan?” or “Paano ba yan nagwowork?” due to its unpopularity during that time.

A few years and a pandemic later, Filipinos have developed a newfound love and confidence in online shopping, especially for home items, clothing and accessories. It has become so popular that even the oldies know and use terms like “budol”, “redeem” and “add to cart”.

But do we enjoy the same convenience and satisfaction of online shopping when buying high-end products like gadgets? Or does buying devices in stores or kiosks still provide a better shopping experience?

In fact, with all the advancements in the way companies run their online stores, buying devices online can be just as good – if not better – than in person.

1. Comfort on schedule

We all hate one thing about physical shopping: long lines.

It not only wastes time but also messes up our schedules especially when we have other things to do. It sometimes even causes us to rush our transactions and overlook important things.

With online stores there is no compromise on your schedule and you have more control over your time. All you have to do is open the website and no longer need to queue or make appointments to complete your transaction.

Some shops like You can even complete your device purchase with just a few taps or clicks, no matter what device you have, anytime, anywhere.

2. Current availability information, devices and offers

Another misfortune that can happen when shopping in a store is how many minutes wait only to find out that the device you want is not available.

One of the many benefits of online stores is that you no longer have to experience this as the website always brings you the latest – the latest gadgets, the latest information and the latest deals available.

For example, Globe’s online store ensures there is no compromise in your online shopping experience by giving you access to the latest phones available in its stores.

With just a few clicks, you can get the wide range of devices Globe offers, including bestsellers, online exclusives and those with freebies. It also shows you instantly if the device you’re eyeing is available or out of stock.

3. No compromises on the plan you need

Thought you could only customize your postpaid plan’s inclusions in store? Well, you can do it online too.

online shops like allow you to create the plan that suits your needs, just like you do in stores. This ensures that customizability is still guaranteed for postpaid customers and that online shoppers continue to have more options that suit their usage.

4. Receive your device as soon as possible

One thing that we particularly like about buying devices from the store is that we can get them immediately after purchase. But some online shops today can also deliver your devices quickly and free of charge.

By making delivery easy and fast, you can also save hours and pesos when shopping for your devices online instead of having to commute to process your purchase. This perfectly complements the convenient overall experience that Globe Postpaid promises.

From searching for devices to customizing your plan to making a purchase, all you have to do is wait for your device to arrive. All of this can be done quickly, online and without the hassle of leaving home and queuing at the mall.

Comfort without compromise

While Filipinos are already more appreciative of the convenience of online shopping, ours is secure Instincts still matter (and rightly so) when it comes to buying high-end products like a new phone or laptop. We make sure we are not scammed and our money is not wasted, which is why some transactions still prefer in-store transactions to online shopping.

at, Confidence and convenience are not mutually exclusive and Globe Postpaid believes there should be no compromise. They should go hand in hand when it comes to buying devices online, and stores should be able to give customers the peace of mind of offering a truly convenient shopping experience.
