Hooked in On-Line Shopping: Zalora Philippines Review

I've been so busy in the past months and I think it's been almost  year that I was not able to update this blog site. I got into a new job within the company I'm working, been busy setting up our first small business and of course, busy taking care with my one and only son :)
Because of these changes, I don't have much time going into the mall and shopping things for myself.
Once I got a chance to visit my Facebook account, I saw this ad from Zalora, browsed it and tried it.

This post is about  Zalora Philippines  review.

Zalora offers broad range of items for men, women, kids, beauty products and sports items.
Their site is friendly and easy to navigate.
Some of the brands they offered, for me, I haven't found it in the mall. (or just because I don't have time shopping that I don't see them :) ) any way, it's not common brand for me..
Payment methods are Cash on delivery or credit card or via PayPal. So even those who don't have credit card can also purchase on line.
Free delivery for purchases amounting 1000php or higher. They deliver anywhere in the Philippines but with the following time lines: Metro Manila - 1-3days while Outside Metro Manila - 3-5 days

During purchase, when you select the product, the pictures are zoomed to the part you want to see the detail, unlike with some buying site, I need to zoom it myself to see it. Different views are also available on for the product, rear, side, even inside..

My first purchase was last April and in terms of delivery, they exceeded my expectation.
Before, when I tried to buy online through a group buying site, the products delivered was not in that good packaging, I mean, they are all placed in plastic provided by the forwarder.
Now, when I purchased at Zalora, they are NEATLY placed in their shipping box, properly sealed and with attached return slip if the customer wants to return the product/s due to size changes or color, return should be done within 30 days. (I haven't returned any, so no comments about this for now).

The first time, I used my credit card to purchase and I was not able to read my email afterwards. It says I need to send verification of the credit card I used before they process the shipment. Having no time reading my email, I was waiting and waiting to about 3 days, until I called their hotline.
Customer service is also good. They instruct me what to do. :)

Right now, I already have 3 purchases with them, all are still in the same good shipment and on time delivery.
I am not residing in Metro Manila but I usually receive my orders within 2-3 days.

I don't have pictures to share right now, I missed to take them when I receive my orders because I was too excited opening the package.

Below pictures shows how Zalora's Site looks like. :)
