I have ordered tons of stuff from Lazada and Shopee over the years. I used to just use Lazada because I could pay with my credit card - but they started letting the shippers set their own shipping rates, and they tripled their shipping fees. I have tried to use Lazada but over the last 18 months have not ordered anything because of the ridiculous shipping costs (quite often more than the item). Sucks because they used to be good. I ordered a Char-Broil grill from them a few years ago (locally it was "not is stock, sir"), the cost was p500 cheaper than local, it was in stock, and shipping was like p200. A couple months ago I looked at monitor cables - p150 for the cable, p280 for shipping. Every seller had the same price. Went to Shopee, it was p150 for the cable, p60 for shipping.

Now I just use Shopee. Much cheaper shipping. When they use LBC it is best, but Ninja Van and J&T are ok. I just pay at 7-11 on the machine.

I never had any issues getting stuff from overseas sellers (pretty much means China), until the lockdown. Lately anything I add to the cart that says 'overseas', gets removed from my cart when I try to pay. It says no shipping option available. Once this all settles down, I am sure it will go back to normal. I still order from Manila and it gets to Iloilo pretty quickly.

The China seems to be OK now. This is a slingshot I ordered and my daughter had 4 things from China come ok around the same time.:

The problem for us right now is that they are using Entrego for deliveries in our area and they suck. Big mess. My daughters packages were floating around in Olongapo for 3-5 days before they got delivered.

Shadow, both companies use COD, that's the only way I'll order but lately I've been ordering from Shopee and thats where I got my Web cam and it was shipped from China and like I mentioned believe it or not it got to me in less than one week, the total cost of web cam including shipping was 675 pesos, they use those Ninja motorcycle riders and they deliver to the door, it was delivered last week the web cam is real nice and what an upgrade for me, I also ordered recently a headset but that was from Manila and through Shopee and it got to me in under a week same Ninja delivery the cost with delivery was just over 500 pesos the headset was a Fantech HQ51.

I just can't get anything remotely close to what I can order online, there's never any stock on hand at the stores or they don't order the right web cams or headsets.

Another note on the shipping from China, it shipped out of China in less than 3 days, there's a tracker, I have my son do that he uses his Smart phone and we also use his phone number the Ninja delivery guys use this to contact you and give you a heads up that they are on their way, they first notify you it will be delivered on that day and then they call when they get inside the Municipality just minutes before delivery.

Postal or private like DHL? Or do they even tell you? This whole connection to local carriers is why I would choose Shopee over AliExpress.

I've also noticed it's easy to find COD from Manila but many overseas sellers on Shopee require CC.

There are a lot of companies utilized for deliveries, depending on where you live. Ninja has been good for me but the recent use of Entrego has been poor. There are several payment options available and it may vary by seller and product. COD is not always available. Credit, debit, Gcash and payment kiosks can be used. When COD is not available I pay at 7/11 on the Cliq payment machine.

I'm under the impression they ship consolidations by air cargo. I doubt that they us Fedex / DHL / UPS because their cargo rates are high, but they might. They can use passenger flights and get cheap cargo rates. Yes, they break the freight down at Manila facilities and give it to one of their delivery partners.

I had my son check how it was shipped and it didn't say so? I'll have to wait until the next time to look at myself and see if can tell what company.

For sure I wouldn't want to use that CC either online.

They seem to have a distribution centre in China (Shenzhen) and then consolidate to the Philippines. Lazada's main Philippine distribution centre appears to be in Tondo (San Pedro). They then send on to a more local distribution centre that then delivers locally or LBC it.

How does that work with customs duties and taxes, I can't see the local deliver guys collecting it.

Why not, if you like most are COD is would just be added to what you pay to the delivery drived. The tracking on my last couple of items showed them clearing customs.
