Zalora Philippines - Online Shopping Ease and Efficiency

- Yasunari Ramon Suarez Taguchi -

CEBU, Philippines - The thing with "catch up" trends is that most already form an informal backgrounder upon hearing about them, liable in believing that what has to be said has already been done.

In the case of online shopping portals, Zalora Philippines renders presupposed suspicions of the abovementioned caliber as inept, with its full fledged customer support services and features, matched with its diverse line of carried brands, accessories, clothing and apparel products.

With Zalora Philippines, online shopping is tuned to what it truly is - meant to be all about ease and efficiency for online Filipino shoppers.

Launched at the end of 2011, Zalora Philippines makes a new hallmark in Cebu's online shopping and fashion landscape by resolving three major concerns often expressed by Cebuanos when shopping online: diversity of featured products, mode of payment, and delivery.

With its fleet of "Z-Riders" as couriers, online orders are delivered within a day or two when shopping with Zalora, with a wide range of payment options from credit cards, bank deposits, G-Cash modes, Paypal, and - get this - cash on delivery.

Carrying a diverse line of fashion house brands, Zalora Philippines features different fashion and apparel items, from women's wear, men's wear and children's wear. Feature products from established brands like Asics, Crocs, Dolce & Gabbana, Florsheim Kids, Folded & Hung, Gucci, Guess, Hang Ten, Havaianas, Jansport, New Balance, Nike, Otto, Ripcurl, Rockport, Sanuk, Silverworks, Stoked Inc, Triumph, XOXO and more, are among Zalora Philippines' highlights.

The online shopping portal even carries proudly Cebu-based brands, with What A Girl Wants (WAGW), Virus, Scars, Black Bile, Killapinas, Product Of Uranus, Markov Clothing and Strawberry at the top of its list, with more local names to come.

Zalora Philippines even has its own customer service team, trained to deal with various inquiries and questions, from how to use-themed questions to what'd be great to wear tips.

Simply put, when Zalora Philippines describes itself as a full fledged online shopping portal, it lives up to its description.

"Online shopping is really big, and the Philippines has reached the tipping point. People have been waiting for this," shares Paulo Campos, co-founder of Zalora Philippines. "With Zalora, we tried to address every barrier to adoption, every reason why you wouldn't do your shopping online."

As an online entity, Zalora Philippines is part of a network of sister sites with bases in different parts of the world. It began with Zalando in Europe, which was launched in 2007, growing into being among the largest e-commerce sites in Europe.

Standing as the Philippines' first large-scale, full-service-e-commerce fashion site with over 5000 featured products, Zalora Philippines brings the true value of online shopping to Cebu, doing away with the "casually visiting online shopping lifestyle" practice most Cebuanos engage in from time to time.

Drop by www.zalora.com.ph for more details. Zalora's Customer Service Team can be reached at 1800-8-8181818 (Toll Free Globe) or 1800-10-1818181 (Toll Free PLDT) between 7AM to 1AM. (FREEMAN)
