The Advantage And Disadvantage Of Sending Gifts Through Online Shops
by: Samantha Forest

The use of balikbayan boxes is said to be the only way for overseas Filipinos to send gifts Philippines. However, in today's modern trends, Filipinos from all over the world have finally been given a new way for them to send gifts to their loved ones in the Philippines. This is through the use of Philippine-based online shops. So what are the things that online shops provided for overseas Filipinos?

The advantage of sending

One thing that online gift shops can give to overseas Filipinos is the advantage of sending gifts Philippines easily and conveniently. Before online shops were created to provide these Filipinos a new way of sending their gifts to their loved ones, these online establishments were first used only to provide Filipinos with a new way of shopping. Similar to that of online shops in other countries, these were first used by Filipinos wanting to shop conveniently without having to leave their house or work.

Eventually, the demand for a new way of sending gifts Philippines became larger that several of these online shops and several business entities in the Philippines founded an online shop solely for the use of overseas Filipinos. So what are the things that made it popular? One reason why online shops became popular is because of its convenience.

Unlike arranging and sending a balikbayan box, online shops allowed these Filipinos to send gifts without the usual hustle. Arranging a balikbayan box as well as buying the things that Filipinos would send to their loved ones could take days. Online shopping, however, could only take several minutes to an hour. The only thing that an online shop would require is a bank account.

Another advantage is the speed of its delivery. Balikbayan boxes, though very cost-efficient compared to other forms of packages, would usually take several weeks to a month before it can be delivered. Online shops, on the other hand, could offer a much faster means of delivering their gifts, typically taking 2 to 5 working days.

The disadvantage

There are, however, several disadvantage to using an online shop. One is the cost. Items found in an online shop are usually 50% higher than the cost found in a physical, brick-and-mortar shop. This is because customers aren't only paying for the item, but they're also paying for the convenience as well as its delivery fee.
