Buying and Selling in the Philippines
From Big Sellers to Sole Proprietors on Classifieds SitesEverybody in the Philippines is eager to do business, and this is apparent from the boom of online marketplaces and classifieds sites, like Multiply.com, Philippine Free Classifieds, and OLX Philippines.
Leveraging Facebook for SellingThe Facebook is also a widely-used platform for indie shops who sell anything from dresses to handmade baked goodies to organic food products. Because of its viral capabilities, many stores create an online presence on Facebook to help them spread the word about their product line. Likewise, buyers also enjoy this platform because they are able to conveniently shop using their Facebook accounts.
Many are constantly signed on to their Facebook so pushing products to them via updates is quick, easy, and effective. So much so that even large manufacturing companies have gone into it as well, like Oishi, Coca Cola, Mama Sita's Instant Mixes and Sauces, Universal Robina Products, Nescafe, etc.
