What if..

(Amazon Philippines did set up)

Nakabili na ko from US, both from Newegg and Amazon. Kung ano mga yun? Sakin na lang. hehe I was still shocked last night na yun Amazon is not earning or showing a period which they really earn. It surprises me because sila lang naman ang leader when it comes in online shopping, not only in the US, maybe in some countries.

Then there are news about Amazon setting up a branch here. Eh may posting pa naman sa linkedin di ba? hehe Malamang in a year, totoo na yan. I’ll tell about my experience in online shopping maybe in the later posts, pero from what I experienced, Lazada has good service and ease of online shopping. No doubt, mukhang di eto palugi. Kaso siyempre di lahat mayroon sila, like designer clothes or shoes.. Sige may Zalora or I forgot the other website, pero mahal naman saka yun specific items kung baga, wala dito. For example yun 6TB na WD my book, yun bagong version ha.. Parang wala dito, at kung mayrun man, malamang mahal due to shipping and crappy taxes. If you do the long cut, gaya ng bibilin mo sa amazon tapos papaship mo dito, medyo gagastos ka. Tax plus yun shipping services na kahit may mga mababang rates, eh maghihintay. Etong long cut na to di pwede sa mga taong, gusto now na! haha

Even books, well, pwede ka umasa kay Power books (dalawang libro na binili ko sa kanila from US), matagal saka, ehem medyo malaki ata ang tubo. hahaha It means, the first advantage that Amazon should have, is to remove those obstacles. The time plus other fees. Siyempre may tax pero Philippine tax, not US tax. Or copy how lazada does right? Kahit di na one day shipping gaya yun ginagawa nila sa Amazon Prime customers, eh ok na sa kin. Grabe, basta yun items mayroon at papatok yan. Yun nga lang, marami magsasara. =( Like those shipping from US services, or even aliexpress which I discovered sulit pala for shopping good chinese branded products, like smartphones na Huawei, Xiaomi and etc.. I mean kung makikita mo na agad gusto mo dito, bakit ka pa magpapaship di ba?

Yes, the brick and mortar stores will take a hit, like mga clothes or even computer parts stores, kasi bakit ka pa maghihintay sa release dito eh si Amazon idedeliver na sayo, maghintay ka lang. hehe I don’t know if Amazon will also use yun grocery gaya sa US. Malamang hindi. At yun mga kalaban, walang choice kung hindi magbaba ng presyo or magsara na lang. Yes, it’s a big threat that if Amazon will set up here.

However, if and only if this happens kung si Amazon will really stock up all the products available. If they only compete other online services and serve or deliver the same items that the competitors offer, dun sila madadale. Baka di sila tumagal dito. hehe Gaya ako, kung may nahanap na ko sa lazada na gusto ko tapos may sale pa, at si Amazon eh mayrun din pero wala pang extra, bakit ako bibili kay Amazon? Or how about the other items I like tapos wala pala dito kay Amazon, edi go for the long route. Buy from US, ship to an US address (mga kamag anak sa states) tapos paship dito or other means. Amazon will indeed go bankrupt here pag same lang offer nila with other stores.

That’s my view about this, well I hope they do have everything from the US or hard to find things or items that are only sold in the US, lalo na computer parts.. Kaya yun. Isang advantage lang kailangan nila at isang mali lang, wala na..

Oh please, I don’t care about Amazon Prime, siguro yun fast shipping part pero kung lagi ako nagshopping saka di naman ako nagmamadali. hahaha I don’t watch those shows neither watch the movies (ako pa tinanong mo sa movies?!). Newegg.com sana magset up na dito, kaso mawawala yun gilmore nyan. hehe

Let’s wait and see.. I’m still shocked they are running in red.. Hmmmmm
