A growing online community
The security and surety provided by reputable shopping websites such as Karton.ph makes online e-commerce appealing to a growing number of Filipino households.

Honest and vetted reviews
People rely on other people to provide them with honest feedback on the products they purchase. Online e-commerce sites make the reviews available to anyone who has the time to browse customer feedback. Their personal experience counts and you have to find the time to read the reviews and see for yourself whether a platform is worth doing business with. Do not risk being grossly mishandled. It can happen, but you have the power to prevent it from happening to you.
An alternative holiday shopping spree
Your foodie friends will have no shortage of gourmet products they’ve been craving all year. This holiday season, you can forgo the usual visit to the mall. Skip the lines and the crowd. Instead, get a bucket of popcorn and start browsing sites such as Karton.ph for the latest uploads. Gourmet meats and snacks—must-try products your friends will love are now available from passionate artisans who prioritize quality above all.
From the garage to the Internet
Online platforms selling gourmet Filipino food work with artisans and food makers that started out as small-scale garage outlets. Some of them are still selling directly from their homes, while also spreading out to the Internet. The comfort of Pinoy flavors will arrive at your doorstep. All you have to do is pay for the goods and start enjoying it with family—just a day or two after ordering it. Isn’t that wonderful?
