    Nice article. Lazada is one of the most popular online shopping websites in the Philippines. I’ve discovered this alternative for lazada, a new player in the game http://www.goods.ph. I think this online shop is almost the same with lazada in terms of items and prices. It also have a COD (cash on delivery) options.
