I have had no issued with ordering things with a credit card both for online purchases in and outside of the Philippines. The things I have ordered outside the Philippines to be shipped to the Philippines can take along time arriving depending on where it is send from and the method of shipment. I'm getting a little off topic. No credit card issues.

I have made online purchases for the last 15years or so and have not had a problem with the Credit Cards use. Make sure that the address you are dealing with has "https" and not just "http" as the "s" indicates that it is a secure website. I had not had anything sent directly here, only to my mail forwarder in the states so I can't offer any info on that part.

Hmmm, I didn't had any problems with lazada also, Go on and try shopping online. If there are problems with the products, just contact them immediately.

Online shopping works NO CC issues with me as a matter of Fact Lazada refunded money for a product their provider could not produce. The product line is limited. Takatack is OK
OLX and Vigattin is another place to look but most are people selling products.

Here is an example
I ordered a JBL Charge 2 from Lazada 6299 php converted is like 137 USD
On Amazon they run from 99-149 USD
So even buying the lowest 99 that 38 USD difference or 1700 php.
Then add in shipping to PI I think you would spend well over 38 USD to ship it here.
Plus I got free slush and shake maker YAHOOO

I made an order with Lazada - it is COD. I am eagerly awaiting for an LBC courier in the next few days.
