FREE Guide on Starting Your Online Business
Whenever you go anywhere in the Philippines, food is one of the things that Filipinos are proud of. In every place you can see different types of food or special delicacies. Some places are even widely known to have the best (insert food here) in the Philippines.
For example, Bacolod is known for chicken inasal and piaya. Here, you would see different businesses selling different flavours of chicken inasal in Manukan Country, Chicken House, Chicken Deli, Nena’s etc. You can even see them on the streets at night. Same thing for piaya, you have Bongbong’s, Merczi and Virgie’s to name a few with their own piaya flavour and presentation.
For some, you have the same experience in your place. You see (insert food here) everywhere. That is the food your place is known for.
When you visit these places, one of the things that you look forward to is to taste or get the best of what that place can offer. You would even buy pasalubongs for your loved ones back at home to taste it as well. This is all good until you ran out of it and you still want some more.
First thing you would probably do is search in google for their website. If they don’t have a website, you will probably see the products being talked about in Facebook. You try to ask them by sending a private message ("PM") on how you can order. Or you will just probably call the seller if you can order over the phone and will just pay through a bank deposit.
This is how it is right now in the Philippines. Sellers of local delicacies have no money to spend or technical know-how to do business online. If they have a website, this website is for information only and not for ordering. Sellers are not aware of what is available as they mostly sell through Facebook. For some sellers that are aware, they are not ready to pay for the fees involve so they can give convenience to their shoppers.
There has been a lot of technological advancement since the boom of the internet back in 2000. Anyone can now sell online easily even with little technical knowledge. There are a lot of e-commerce platforms now available. You can even now pay using credit card or bank transfer through Paypal.
