Online stores in the Philippines
Given the rise of working from home, many are turning to the Internet to attend to their needs, such as shopping out products on online stores. It’s no wonder why – shopping online indeed has never been more convenient, with many online stores offering a comprehensive selection of items along with their payment methods and occasional sales.
To help you find the products you need, we’ve listed down below 20 online stores selling general merchandise, clothing, grocery items, health & beauty essentials, electronics & hardware products, as well as furniture.
– General merchandise stores –
1. SM Store – from clothing to Philippine souvenirs
Whenever you need to do a shopping haul for any season, you can get most of your needs covered by The SM Store online, especially if you don’t have time to pay a visit to your nearby SM.
Browsing The SM Store online feels like visiting an SM department store, because the website also offers a wide variety of items such as menswear, womenswear, children’s wear, beauty products, and things for the home. You can also shop for stationery, toys, hardware, and Philippine souvenirs. All are available in different brands from abroad and from our shores.
2. Frankie and Friends General Store – one-stop shop for products made by local small businesses
As much as we want to support local businesses, sometimes, they can be hard to come by as most of them operate on a small scale. Thankfully, Frankie and Friends has partnered with many of these businesses so we can have a one-stop shop for our needs as well as to support our own communities.
Opened in 2018, they have three physical stores in the Philippines so far that are so Instagrammable you may want to pay a visit soon. But if you don’t want to go out as often as possible, their online store can be your alternative.
Featuring a wide variety of products, the online store lets you shop clothing, accessories, personal care essentials, and novelty items from different local brands. Amihan Organics’ collection of soaps, for example, is made from natural ingredients such as lemongrass essential oil and virgin coconut oil from P135 (~USD2.71). While some items are affordable, other speciality products may not be easy on the wallet because of their unique design such as the Orias’s Mini Solihiya Roller Bag (P9,950, ~USD198.88), which is made from genuine leather and solihiya (a popular weave pattern) rattan.
Many shipping options are available upon ordering – you can book your own courier or pick up your orders from one of their branches. Shipment comes with a small fee, depending on the proximity of your address. You can pay via credit/debit card, G-Cash, and mobile banking.

If you wish to buy directly from your favorite brands, LazMall showcases items which directly come from the manufacturer of the product you’re eyeing.
