Default Lazada and Shopee

Finally Rick, well done.
Perhaps off topic but what are members views on Lazada and Shopee? We have only purchased a pump and all good, now looking at a 12 to 15K water cooled get set, bigger than our needs perhaps but will probably just idle along but will handle the bigger A/C units if we want, looking at these sizes as they are silenced and water cooled. Still trying to gather full specs from sellers, wish us luck there.

Cheers, Steve.

So far we've made several orders from both companies and no complaints, this is how I got my new web cam, headset, RAM, earbuds headset for my sons smart phone and most orders delivered in a week or less.

Thanks Mark and I'm sure after my 1 dealing with Lazada all should be good but this purchase is around the PHP 200/220K range and I can't travel to Manila to view so have to rely on the sellers integrity and ability to supply the correct info, even in Tagalog is difficult to secure info for the manufacturers specs. BTW the gen sets we are looking at are on Shopee and I've not dealt with them yet. Then there will be the shipping costs on a crane truck to consider. Slowly slowly.

Cheers, Steve.

If they don't offer a warranty I probably wouldn't do it then. I purchased products from Robinsons and they do offer an extended warranty it cost a little more but might be worth it.

Privately owned spots or single business family owned from our experience aren't so hot when it comes to problems with the purchase, I had my wife buy a Honda Generator from a much smaller company and it cost her $800, I was still in the States and when she got home 3 hrs later it no longer worked and they wouldn't take it back.

Perhaps she should have thrown this at them: RA 7394

I posted this one because the dti.gov website wouldn't load, always a problem with gov sites I find.

https://lawphil.net/statutes/repacts...7394_1992.html

I understand that warranties mean little here as the sellers here are just that and believe that once it is out the door it's off their hands, sad compared to western norms with honouring warranties and the prosperity of their businesses.

Before I purchase a generator I will do my due diligence for warranty, parts availability/suppliers, local service agents, full service/technical manual and electrical schematics etc.
Good luck there bigpearl.

Regardless while I, like most others have little retail shopping ability with these lockdowns and me being an old codger the online stores will do well and are much cheaper but you still have to do your homework, local shops here selling generators look at me perplexed when I ask for the noise level rating, once they understand they generally offer to text the info to us once they contact their supplier,,,, we have never received such figures from 4 local dealers in our Province that we have enquired with, not interested in a sale it seems. Online we can get simple info like that.
The new normal has been a huge boost to online sellers revenue.

Cheers, Steve.

Good info and interesting with regards to Shopee, unfortunately Ican't find a gen set on Lazada to suit our needs but still looking.

Cheers, Steve.

I've purchased products from Manila using Shopee, very happy with the fast local delivery.

Has anyone purchased overseas items using Shopee?

I'm curious, is there an option to have those packages delivered to Manila, and then handed off to local delivery services like LBC or JTS? I'd prefer that to post office or DHL etc

They have their own distribution networks, yes LBC, JTS, ninja vans, LEX etc. Usually turn up at the door in a tricycle with other packages in the area.

Recently I ordered a wedcam from Shopee and it shipped from China, I got my package in less than a week, it's a W8 HD Web cam... really nice, total cost was 675 pesos, I can't find these things in my area the stock is so limited.
