Everybody loves the best and cheap gadget stores, who doesn’t? Cellphones, Headsets, Bluetooth Speakers to name a few from thousands of items listed on your favorite online shops. But amongst these numerous shops and stores, which are exactly selling gadgets on dirt cheap prices?
Buying gadgets online seems to be the best way to bargain, I believe this is because of the Product Movement segment or logistics of the selling process that these stores really cut their prices off. You see, their goods are often direct from the Factory or the Manufacturers or in some cases Bulk Sellers and then sold directly unto their individual customers without storing, moving, transferring and tagging for some period of time in a Warehouse. Of course, Warehouses will charge these product owners some storage fees. There are great long-running online gadget stores in the Philippines that are still at its peak today.
You may rethink the word cheap after reading some reviews of some items on the online markets, but as of the moment here are some of the stores online who offers gadgets and accessories:
# 1 Kim Store
– one of the longest running gadget stores who started from social media myspace.com that is now operating in their very own website. One of the most responsive stores for customer queries with a wide variety of products specifically gadgets, but a little bit sluggish on gadget warranty. Payment methods include Cash On Delivery, Dragonpay, and Bank Deposits. Delivery Service thru Ninja Van and LBC.

# 2 Pound It
-slowly becoming famous in the online community due to their efficient customer service and has a good store structure with an easy to navigate website. Gadget ranges from Cellphone to any type of Bluetooth speakers. Delivery thru LBC, Ninja van and Xend. Payment via Credit Cards, Debit, and Bank Deposit and Payment Centers. There’s a review section on their page too, and an update every time there is an item sold, well that’s quite a thoughtful idea.

# 3 Widget City
-Quite a minimalist approach in their website, though I believe a simple and easy to navigate E-commerce sites always attract traffic due to its easy feature. But their page is actually not so much enticing to customers based on my personal experience with the site. Just a plain, whitish, ebayish approach, overall, the reviews on their site are average to above average based on the customer service and probably given a little period of improvements, they will be a competent online store as well. Payment options includes, Credit Cards, Cash on Delivery(pick-up),Flexi Finance, Home Credit Installment, and Bank Deposit.

# 4 Into Gadgets
-In my opinion, this online retailer has a good interactive website and very easy to navigate the page. However, there’s a huge con on the product availability, it is somehow minimal compared to the three listed above. I tried to search for specific type of gadgets such as “Bluetooth”, “speaker” and “echo dot” and it shows the same results of “No Result”, I never thought such a very generic and overly used term in e-commerce hence, “Bluetooth” never really came out anything. I don’t wanna speculate things, but I guess being a new player to the e-commerce industry, they’ll have to catch up with a lot of things.

# 5 Latest Gadget
-I will give this site a thumbs up, not because they had excellent customer service whatsoever but simply because, they had a wide range of products available. Their page is average in styling but easy to interact, more of an Alibaba type. Tons of products to choose from and lots of brands, the only downside is that, who could guess? They do not sell a phone. The plethora of gadgets are overwhelming, it’s a haven for cellphone casing, tempered glass, Bluetooth related gadgets, measuring tools and smartwatches, and the list keeps going on. If you’re into gadgets minus the cellphone, then this site is one of the best out there.
