My Zalora Experience

Last July I was checking Zalora, an online shopping website that is so popular for carrying different brand items in Asia. I saw an ad about discounts offered for men and I was hoping I can find something for my husband for our Bohol trip in November.

I was lucky to found this on sale:
Board shorts that cost Php 163.00 each from 
It was definitely a good buy but I decided to just put these items on my cart and look for other board shorts in Zalora if there's far cheaper than the ones I found. I didn't find anything so I looked in Ebay. Still nothing cheaper like a Php 100 worth of a board short. I give up and decided to call it a day.

I got an email from Zalora the following day with this message:

Wow! This site really knows how to convince it's buyers for grabbing their items. This chance is too good to pass up so I hurriedly checkout my items and use the coupon code they've provided on my email. By the way I used Paypal in making my purchase. My total bill...

Total bill including shipping fee Php 539.32. Hurray!
I decided to ship the items that I ordered on my friend's address since it's cheaper if it's a Metro Manila address (Php 100 fee) versus provincial address which is where I am now. I informed my friend to wait for a package from Zalora as I have used her home address. The following day, I received a BBM message from my friend telling me that the package arrived! Wow!

My friend and I decided to meet so I can get the package from her. She's such a sweet friend for carrying the box. I owe her so many thanks!

Now this is what I call a hassle-free shopping right at the comforts of my own home. I will definitely make a purchase again especially Christmas season is just around the corner which reminds me I need to start making my Christmas shopping list.
