A “WOW!” Online Shopping Experience
Online shopping has been on the rise. At 53% online retail reach, however, the Philippines still trails other Asia-Pacific countries – with the likes of Vietnam already at 76.7%. In other words, online shopping here hasn’t remotely reached its potential yet.
No doubt, a major advantage of online shopping is the speed at which you can find information. It is easy to find a store that has the best price or deal for the product you’re looking for. Add to that the convenience of not having to go out and spend numerous hours stuck in traffic. Or the fact that you can shop at your own time, at your own pace, wherever you are. The list goes on and on…
But there are also other factors that some may find discouraging. Security, for instance, is a major issue all of us must be aware and wary of. Online stores also vary with the payment options being offered. A favorite among Filipinos, the 0% installment, is practically non-existent online. Delivery time of goods also varies from store to store, with some stores promising a few days, while some needing to take weeks.
It is for these reasons and more, that a local online store was recently launched – The WOW Store. This new online store was actually headed by The WOW Group, a well-established company that directly distributes world-class brands such as Grand Videoke, Sennheiser, LD Systems, Breville, Matstone, Hanwha, among many others.
So what sets The WOW Store apart?
First, The WOW Store is the authorized distributor of the products offered in the site. And this is very important because as a consumer, you are assured all products are genuine and covered by warranty after-sales support. Though a newcomer in the online shopping realm, the offering of the site is quite diverse – ranging from Home Entertainment, Food and Wellness, Pro Audio and Lighting, Wall and Flooring solutions, and more.
Another plus is the myriad of payment methods offered. In fact, this is the first online store to offer up to 24 months 0% Interest Installment for BDO Credit cards. Other payment options include Cash on Delivery, Online Payment via Debit and Credit cards, Bank Payments and Over the Counter. Shipping is free on purchases P999 and above in major cities in the Philippines. With a delivery time duration of 1-2 days within Metro Manila and 3-5 days in provincial areas (except Sundays and holidays).
Security, as mentioned, is very important. All transactions done at The WOW Store are secured and encrypted for 100% customer protection. Using payment gateways such as PesoPay which supports 3D Secure protocol for Visa, MasterCard, JCB and American Express transactions, this security system is at par with other trusted and established E-commerce websites.
For customer service, The WOW Store features live chat so you can converse directly with their team of professional and highly-trained staffs. All in all, The WOW Store strives to differentiate itself from the rest by ensuring a “WOW” online shopping experience.
