TikTok is also a shopping app now.
There are several shopping apps available in the Philippines. We’ve got Lazada, Shopee, Zalora, and many more. We never expected to be able to shop with TikTok. After all, it’s an entertainment app. But TikTok allows users to sell things now.
This FreebieMNL writer tried shopping from TikTok, and it got very addicting, very fast. Here’s why I think it’s better compared to other shopping apps.
Buying clothes from TikTok
I bought tennis skirts from another app before TikTok launched its shopping feature. But the seller’s sizing chart was inaccurate, so the skirts didn’t fit me. When I discovered a seller on TikTok selling plus-size coords, I decided to take a look. I ended up buying two sets.
@curvymnl New arrival po mga sis. Limited stocks! Shapi check out po kay @Plus Size RTW. Ph (CurvyPh). ? #tiktoklivephilippines #tiktoksellerph ? Ella Mai – My Way – sabinahannan
The coords were the same price as on other platforms. I loved that TikTok automatically applied free shipping to the items in my cart. Vouchers were also available. TikTok decided to auto-apply the voucher that would give me the most savings.
When the clothes arrived, they fit perfectly. I decided not to buy plus-size clothing from another platform besides TikTok.
TikTok promotes accurate advertising
As I’ve learned the hard way, some Chinese stores do not advertise the item as it is. I bought a shoe rack but received plastic shoeboxes instead. But TikTok is slowly eliminating accounts that do false promotions.
The app also encourages sellers to make use of the live feature. This is to show potential buyers that the items they sell are authentic. Interspersed with the regular videos are sellers doing lives and promoting items.
Fast and fuss-free shopping on TikTok
The coords I bought arrived three days after I ordered them. The package came from Manila and I’m in Laguna, so three days is still relatively fast. I also ordered a 28-piece gel polish set, which arrived in two days. How’s that for fast shipping?
@ecaglamnails Apaka ganda mga siswa 302 pesos lang bili na kayo bago pa ma sold out #ecaglamnails #unboxingqueeneca #nailsupplies #nailtechbeginner #gelpolish #WeCoolWithWIKO ? WIKO Beat – WIKO PH, NMBMT
Shopping on TikTok is such a fuss-free experience. I don’t even have to think much about the vouchers because TikTok automatically applies them. Shipping is fast, and I don’t have to wait a week.
