Great thread, I didn't know about Shopee.
Bizwizard, you just might find out that the delivery driver is the same guy who delivers the Lazada also will be delivering Shopee, especially if they are smaller packages.

I haven't' been paying attention to the delivery driver on the motorcycle (Ninja Delivery) but my son tells me he's the same guy who delivers to our Municipality either Lazada or Shopee and from now on I'm going to do my best to get a good look at the Ninja driver and his motorcycle.

Some of the larger packages get sent by mini trike truck or trucks and a different delivery company and they take much longer. My wife ordered two complete bed sheet comforter sets and it took nearly a month and the package was full of dust.

To answer your question on Shopee, it's been great so far and fast, we've ordered several items.

Thanks, MCA.

The last couple of deliveries were out of a small van, possibly the same workers both times. One was a small thin package (headphone extension cable) that could have been delivered via motorcycle

I'll start looking at Shopee; so far I've only ordered from Lazada with no bad experiences. Also, I've been ordering stuff from Amazon and having it shipped to my LA-based shipping company (ForexCargo); they consolidate my orders and ship by sea (really cheap) or air when I order. These purchases are mostly for products not available through the Lazadas and Shopees (like supplements from Life Extension Foundation or Kirkland-branded and Trader Joe products I have become used to).

I'm still a little leary of ordering some products locally because of the various difficulties I have read about on these boards, although this thread is mostly reassuring.

When I retired here in 2010, there wasn't much of any good online shopping store and these business required you to pay an account at a certain bank before they'd send you the product so I never ordered online but now it sure has taken off with Lazada and now Shopee and so many other business and paying by COD and the many delivery options is what has made this possible.

After I retired from the US Navy, a little off topic... I worked in a call center 7 years at Swanson Health Products, selling supplements and vitamins, I was also the night shift Customer Care, I sometimes would get orders for the Philippines and the delivery charges were high, but I'm starting to see more supplement varieties and brand names available online. The crazy thing is that many of these supplements are made here and shipped in bulk to major supplement companies and then bottled in the US.
