What are Filipinos Buying from the U.S.?

Have you tried searching for things to buy in the USA cheaper than in the Philippines? If yes, congrats, and you’re on the trend; if you’re not, then you’re missing a lot.


Lots of US-authentic products are cheaper in America than in the Philippines. More options, more discounts and deals, which means more savings. What is there to hate? Our recent data discovered that Filipinos are flocking these US online stores for their amazing products and discounts.




From these websites, they sure know what the bestsellers are. The graphic below shows you what Filipino shoppers buy from the US and how much they save.



Wanna try shopping from US online stores yourself and ship to the Philippines? We have a few tips for you.


Tip #1: Get yourself a sales-tax-free US address. 


Additional fees such as sales tax make cross-border shopping expensive and discouraging. But it doesn’t have to be because US freight forwarders like comGateway help you steer clear from US sales tax.


Create an account with comGateway, and you will get a sales-tax-free US address that you can use when you checkout your US purchases. 


You’ll receive notifications once your packages have arrived at your US address, and from there, you can manage how you want to ship them home.

Tip #2: Combine packages in one box to save money. 


Look for shipping services that help you save money—for example, comGateway’s OneBox service can reduce up to 80% of a package’s shipping weight. 


In OneBox, our team removes unnecessary packaging of items of your choice before safely and securely combining them in a box to reduce your overall shipping weight.

Businesses are thankful for loyal customers—this is why at comGateway, we have a Prime Rewards system. The more shipments you do, the more rewards you get.
