ZALORA Online Retail NOW OPEN in the Philippines

Word is out on the street that ZALORA is launching in the Philippines. And it looks like the rumors are true. Like Zappos, ZALORA is fashion retail done online focusing on Asian markets like Malaysia and the Philippines. And guess what, the Philippines store is now open! Zalora is powered by the guys from rather controversial Rocket Internet. These are the ones who created Pinspire, which is very similar to Pinterest in order to appeal to regional markets.

Payment methods include VISA, Mastercard, Paypal, BDO and more. The items are delivered via LBC.

Is the Philippines ready for online retail? The answer is a big resounding YES! Multiply stores, eBay, Express Regalo and Amazon have been the front act for online retail in the Philippines. With more and more payment methods being accepted apart from credit cards, online retail brings the convenience of shopping to your computer. Yes, there’s always that natural high brought about by window shopping, but shopping online beats the long lines.

From their About Page:

ZALORA is an online fashion retailer in the Philippines. It is part of the largest online platform retailers in Southeast Asia. We are working with the best international and local suppliers, distributors and retailers to bring the major fashion brands to the online Philippine market.

Zalando India closed down abruptly after failing to make significant sales. I wonder if this will happen to Zalora.

Is this a paid post?

When I saw Zalora PH website and realized it’s contact address is at Jupiter St, Makati, it looks like online retailing is swinging up in the Philippines. Plus there’s another one doing it’s own waves, and no, this is not a paid post too 🙂

@Jared – How come good2send has an ugly website? You need to hire a web designer.
