Lazada vs Ebay vs Amazon

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Well I am not seeing a great deal on Lazada.  I heard it is good, but so far seems high compared to Ebay.

 

For example I am on JBL Bluetooth speaker craze.  From my research the JBL Flip4 is pretty much best bang for your buck,  I can buy them with a due diligence on Ebay for $65 to $70 US Dollar all day long, that is brand new in box and free shipping and no sales tax. Or in Peso that is 3445 peso to 3710 based upon a 53 to 1 conversion rate.

 

So In Philippine term seems like 5500 peso is about best deal I can find, compared to 3445 peso on Ebay.  Maybe cuz it is a American Product. But all I have to say is "God Bless America", and I Thank God I was born in the USA...………….

Be warned about buying electronics stuff from Lazada. I've heard stories that some didn't get what they were buying. A friend of a friend of mine bought  a cellphone, but instead of getting a cellphone in a box, he received a stone wrapped in a white paper.

Even here in the USA that has happened with people buying online but usually it's from Ebay and not Amazon. I know Lazada is pretty much the Amazon equilivilant for the Philippines. So it doesn't surprise me at all that they are higher than here in the USA.

Here in USA, Ebay will take care of it.  That would never be an issue, but we also use paypal or credit cards, no COD

Even on these JBL Speakers, Ebay smokes Amazon, and I have Amazon Prime

In the Philippines I have ordered through Ebay and always get taxed by the local post office. On Lazada I never have to worry about that. I order on Ebay and Amazon all the time here in USA, but in Philippines it's only Lazada. I have never been screwed there and I have bought everything from split unit AC to a cell phone case. I order Pampers every 3 weeks or so for our baby on Lazada.
