Filipino Stores Online

This list of Filipino stores online is undergoing revision. Please do check back for updates and additions soon!

Where to buy Filipino food and grocery items online?

How about a reputable shopping site like Amazon? It has a system for surfacing better-quality Filipino products that have been purchased by many customers. If there’s anything wrong with an item, you’re likely to see it in their product reviews the soonest. For the most part, Amazon reviews are honest and vetted by a large community.

Further, your personal information when purchasing is secured according to the highest industry standards, not just with the empty promises of image badges that purport to respect your privacy. You can’t say the same about misspelling-laden sites with slipshod practices.

What we want to say before we present our list is… Be safe out there. Enjoy your Filipino products without risking your digital safety and privacy.

At this time, we only trust Amazon… and that comes from the personal experience of witnessing how customer data is grossly mishandled by various stores online.

And yes, because we are an affiliate of Amazon, every purchase you make there through us helps in keeping this website up and running!

Good (and safe) for you, good for us as well 🙂

For this list we’ve drawn up, Caveat Emptor… Buyer Beware… We’re providing it for reference only and without endorsement of any kind. But if you notice the absence of a few notable stores, it’s likely because we’ve had a negative experience with them.
