Review: LAZADA App Shopping Experience

product reviews, Lazada Philippines, Lazada App review, Lazada online shopping review,

Mobile shopping is such a huge revolutionary happened in our generation. I admit that I became addicted to it (for some point) and now learned how to control it.

However, am here to share you my LAZADA App shopping experience since the famous Singles’ Day is approaching (well thanks for Alibaba for pioneering of this mega shopping day!).

I think I’ve been signed up for LAZADA App since 2016, but only a year after I became more active on using it. Though my experience wasn’t all sweet, most of it are quite satisfying.



So here am sharing you what I shopped since I became active in LAZADA, and I would love to know your experiences as well.

For those my readers outside Asia, LAZADA is a famous e-commerce shopping site here in Asia that they say could soon be a rival of Amazon. Last year, the famous Chinese e-commerce shopping Alibaba had invested as well in LAZADA, making this shopping site more active and aggressive as well in many promotions, and in delivering good their services to their millions of customers everyday.

Here are some of my recent purchases.

Like I’ve said, online shopping isn’t always sweet.

When they once had this huge promotion on grocery supplies, I tried getting some via LAZADA because I have no time to visit the supermarket. The transaction using this app is pretty smooth, no issue and they delivered it to my office the next day. I unpacked them after a week (since I know that they are not perishable and no leaks in the box), however I was surprised that I got some of my products EXPIRED.



Yes, I was disappointed. I got them for almost 70% off that time and I realized that maybe this is how they do it. It was inconvenient for me to return them all, so I contemplated using them, while vowing not to shop for cleaning and other related supplies from LAZADA.

Why you didn't report or send for replacement or refund?

During that time, I find it too much of a hassle to send a report then complain, then request for refund. I can't deal those kind of stress so I decided "to charge them to experience".

Same with these haircare products that I bought from them for a discounted price. Geez I was so stressed that time! Luckily that diaper bag turns out pretty well.

But there are some parts that LAZADA makes me happy, just like when I both these items below.

Yeah, I both some personal massager via LAZADA and I’m not embarrassed of it. Actually they have pretty wide selection of these kinds and in surprising much affordable prices compared to shopping from malls or other individual shops in the area.



I also bought this standee for my printed banner which I’m using during my event. Light-weight and sturdy for an affordable price of less than Php500pesos, approx. US$9, (including the delivery charge).

I also bought this BOYA microphone for my DSLR which really functions well and priced at Php1,699 (approx.  US$32). Now I don’t worry about having a weird noise while recording for my videos.

I also bought my new WD 1TB portable hard drive from LAZADA with a free pouch for only Php2,750 (approx. US$52). This item makes me truly happy coz I am familiar with Western Digital portable hard drives and I know that this one is quite expensive (based on its original price of Php3,963) and I know how good WD is. I have my first WD hard drive for movie collection which I bought 6-years ago and still working with no issue.

As of this writing, I ordered a gorilla monopod for my DSLR and I can't wait to received it anytime very soon!

So I realized that online shopping may have ups and downs but yeah it is quite a gamble. And so far I am enjoying my Lazada shopping for items with no expiration period. I never bothered to buy makeup and skincare products from Lazada after my bad experience of buying those hair care and cleaning products.



I also like that LAZADA is efficient in delivering the items I’ve bought right on-time. Recently, they even managed to call me prior to the delivery date, just to make sure I am available or someone can received the package in my behalf.

Soon, more online shoppers can now choose same-day/next-day delivery, or Premium Service, for all items sold and fulfilled by Lazada over standard shipping, which takes at least two days.

Premium Service is also offered on top of the guaranteed next-day delivery for items bought from LazMall – Southeast Asia’s biggest mall featuring over 70 million original products from almost a thousand brands, which will soon include Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi, JBL, Philipps, Mac, L’Oreal, Dove, Olay, Levi’s and many more.

In the upcoming 11.11 online shopping festival – the year’s biggest one-day sale – online shoppers can avail of great deals and enjoy them within the same day or the following day by choosing Premium Service.

Same-day/next-day delivery was earlier made available only to shoppers in select cities in Metro Manila, Laguna and Cavite. It was recently launched in Metro Cebu and Davao City, two of the country’s largest retail hubs outside of Metro Manila.

By mid-2019, the e-commerce giant targets to offer Premium Service in more parts of Greater Manila Area: Manila, Mandaluyong, Marikina, San Juan, Pateros and Caloocan. It also plans to offer same-day/next-day delivery in key cities in Batangas.

Will I still recommend you to use Lazada App?


Yes, of course and it’s better you to try it and judge it yourself.

Do they accept returning of items? YES, but it varies on the certain conditions (better to check their website for this). I’ve experienced returning one item, when I bought this Gorilla tripod for my camera which turns out doesn’t fit to mine. I returned it using LBC Delivery based on the instruction slip they gave me along the packaged, and refunded me money in full.

I used my Paypal money for all my LAZADA purchases which is more convenient and safe for me. More reason not to withdraw all my online earnings!


Have you tried using the LAZADA App? How’s your shopping experience?

  1. This looks very much like Amazon. I use that here in the States. It would be interesting to see if it spreads to here. However, they would have to not send out expired products too much.

    1. That is true. That's why I learned so much from this that I can't be lured with 70 to 80% discount on consumable items. They disposed the nearly expired, or really expired products.

  2. So true never have to go to the store if you don't want too. Shop in your jammies. No driving, parking or walking.
