I've discovered this site back in 2013, ordered my very first item which is a limited or hard to find copy of a ps3 game.It was my first time ordering online, it was easy and convenient. Time went on that i started using Lazada than any other shopping site in this country. But then i realized a few months later the change of their shipping policy, which is i did not understand at first until i almost ordered a USB extender which cost about 400php. When i saw the shipping fee, it was absolutly insane! 1000php+ worth of shipping just for a piece of wire and i thought it was mistake or a bug, but nope. It's real.
I could never recommend or shop here again and i believe there's a reason why Lazada changed their Shipping Policy, Only they know the reason on this sudden change and i know they'll say the same thing like "it depends on the seller's store cart" "depending on the minimum purchase" "depends on the seller" but no deep meaning behind this unfair change.
Don't fix if it ain't broke, i, d say.
Unless they find a way either reverse this shipping policy of theirs, but this new shipping policy is really anti-consumer, specially if you're living in the province.
UPDATE: It seems that this policy affects only for provincial regions (outside manila). If you are living outside of that, its doubles or even triples the shipping fee. Very anti-consumer people outside manila.
