Online shopping is not a new thing to anyone anymore, and it has never been this easy. A few clicks and we’re done, with hardly stress involved. Purchased items from local sellers get to be delivered straight to our doorstep in a few days.
Along with this convenience, we can free up our precious time in going to physical stores to check for the item’s description, compare prices by visiting rack after rack and store after store, find other colors or sizes of the same item, know which store branch has new stocks, figure out which ones are the new arrivals, etc.
Don’t get me wrong though. I enjoy both online shopping and going out into the jam-packed real world to window-shop. There are really just times when I prefer visiting e-stores to see what they have to offer, once in a while. Lately, I have been finding myself quite obsessed with Lamido.
Launched in January 2014, Lamido Philippines is considered as one of the newest entrants in the Philippine online marketplace. Via Lamido, you can buy and sell items ranging from fashion, electronics, books, unique collectible and more. In each transaction, you can deal with people from your city and from all over the country.
6 Reasons Why Lamido Philippines is a Hit to Filipinos
1. Easy Buy and Sell with Best Prices
If you have not tried to visit Lamido yet, I suggest that you do that now. Open this link here and discover how the Lamido online marketplace offers buyers items (both used or new) with the best prices. By best, I mean most reasonable. Start comparing prices of items with those posted on olx and you might be surprised how almost everything at Lamido is priced seemingly at a discount.
2. Free to Run Your Own Business and Make Money
Lamido allows users to promote and advertise products and sell them directly to customers by fixed, discounted or auctioned prices. Sellers can organize payment and shipping of the merchandise as they wish.
Suddenly I remember the Multiply Marketplace which died down a few years back. Well, we got Lamido now and everyone can be a merchant for free. There is no listing fee: you don’t pay anything until you close a deal. Registration steps to be a seller are easy to follow as well.
3. Safe and Worry-free Transactions
The Lamido website has a well organized layout, so navigation through item categories is easy. There are also multiple filters to aid you in finding and comparing the best deals. Moreover, users have the options to choose where and when they want the items to be delivered while safe and secure. How so? Lamido has this feature called “Lamido Safepay.”
With it, buyers can deposit the payment for the items they bought via bank transfer (to Lamido’s bank account) or cash on delivery. Once the payment is confirmed, Lamido will only release the payment to the sellers when the buyer receives the ordered items, which should be in perfect working condition. If the buyer is not satisfied, returning of items is acceptable.
4. Dedicated Help Desk
It’s often frustrating when nobody hears out customer complaints and feedback. It’s great that Lamido has thought of working on customer service as it has a team that’s dedicated to attend to buyer complaints. This is what they call the “Buyer Protection Scheme,” which I think everyone will be (hopefully) happy about. Whenever a complaint with a seller is opened, the Order Fulfillment team sends a warning to the sellers to ship out orders or they will hide their listings from the Lamido.com. ph website.
5. Unusual, Usable Products
The success of Etsy, Ebay, Amazon and Snapdeal, to name a few, can be attributed to the fact that there’s not a lot of sites where you can find unique or unusual products penetrating the online marketplace. These e-stores compete on individuality, aesthetics and the type and variety of products that are available.
This is where Lamido and these mentioned sites are similar, I think. What’s noteworthy is that you can look for “hard-to-find” items in just one big site. Lamido’s brand and reputation for quality will drive the demand.
6. Mobile Shopping
For smartphone users, Lamido.com.ph is also available for browsing through your Android phone. The Lamido Android app was rolled out and officially launched last July 17, 2014. With this application, you can do online shopping on-the-go. You can also check out the detailed product information and images on the app.
Lamido is another site that changes the online landscape of business. It makes everything simpler and easy for buyers and also allows sellers in the Philippines to maximize sales and revenue. Lamido is one of the many ventures owned by Rocket Internet designed to provide the best and safest marketplace for sellers, merchants and buyers. Successfully creating market leading online companies for more than 15 years worldwide, Rocket Internet is continuously finding ways to provide Internet users services they can use for their businesses and their daily use.
