Retail and eCommerce in the Philippines
The Philippines is a hugely diverse nation made up of a network of islands, its economy is built upon its manufacturing industry that is composed mainly of electronic component assembly, clothing and pharmaceuticals, which of course means that items are often sent here to help in the process whether it be spare parts or core materials. As Parcel Monkey's Global Shipping Marketplace can cater for people shipping from around the globe, we can help you ship from some of the biggest import sources that supply this country in South East Asia such as the US, China, Japan and Thailand.
The Philippines has one of the largest markets in South East Asia in terms of economy, whilst English is widely spoken and Western goods are extremely sought after. Trading with the Filipino consumers can, therefore, be easier than a lot of other destinations, plus they have a huge love of shopping. Manila is home to the biggest shopping complex in Southeast Asia - the SM Megamall, however more and more Filipinos are starting to embrace eCommerce.
As one of the most active locations in the world with social media, eCommerce naturally follows once the infrastructure is in place to handle vast volumes of parcel traffic that comes with an eCommerce boom, and the Filipino market simply needs to look at the Chinese market and see how this has taken off. Currently, there is the need for more reliable courier services as in the Philippines there are not enough logistics or courier providers in the country to meet the increasing eCommerce volume, so if you book a reliable courier via our platform you can ensure this hurdle is overcome.
