Lazada is one of the most popular online stores in the Philippines.
Just to give some context, Lazada partners with hundreds of local and international sellers, which makes Lazada like an online catalogue of various shops. However, there are products that Lazada handles itself, i.e. “sold and fulfilled by Lazada”. There are many legitimate local sellers that opt to sell their items via Lazada, so it’s not unusual that I get redirected to Lazada when I spot something interesting whether on facebook or the seller’s own website.
Despite having an account on Lazada since 2015, this would be my first time to push through with a purchase. Since creating an account, I usually looked through Lazada only for my own virtual window shopping pleasure.
