Online Grocery Pioneer

Online shopping, or e-commerce, is fast transforming into one of the Philippines’ most successful business sectors.

As a matter of fact, a recent study released by credit-card company MasterCard showed that 59% (or three out of five) of the Philippines’ online population access the internet for shopping.

And the reason? Simple: with e-commerce shops such as Lazada and Zalora, online Pinoys now have access to so-called "better deals."

Electronic commerce or "e-commerce" may be new for most Filipinos, but it's already making inroads in the Philippines' business climate in the past few years.
