I don’t like the coronavirus but I can’t deny that it opened my world to online shopping. It started with Lazada, Shopee, Amazon and now I’ve already tried Uniqlo Online Shopping. Slowly, I am learning and trying different eCommerce sites. During pre-pandemic days, I always visit Uniqlo shop in the mall, maski nung nagJapan kami, nagwindow shopping din ako dito. But during the pandemic, I tried to avoid the online site at baka mapacheck-out ako lagi.
I rarely buy clothes online because I prefer to see the style, feel the fabric, and of course, to check if it will fit me. The last time I bought at Zalora, hindi kasya yung damit sa akin and tinamad na ko magreturn and because of that natrauma na ko bumili ng clothes. But since I usually buy clothes at Uniqlo, I know our sizes already.
My son is already a teenager so the majority of his clothes no longer fit, I remember his Confirmation bitin na yung pants but we don’t have time to go to the mall so sinuot pa rin. Since nakakalabas na naman ang mga vaccinated teenagers (depending on alert level), I need to buy new clothes for him.
Almost two weeks ago, we went to the mall to buy clothes but the guard did not allow my son so my husband and my son stayed at the parking lot while I checked Uniqlo shop. Unfortunately wala gaano available sizes sa anak ko. My son is at stage na mahirap bilhan ng clothes kasi bihira yung may kasya sa kanya (maliit kapag sa kids section at malaki kapag sa adult section). I know may preteens or teens section pero ang hirap magmall. Sa Uniqlo, I always check size 160, XS, and small pero depende pa yan sa type ng clothes.
And because of that, I went to the Uniqlo website and started “adding to cart”. The online shopping site is very easy to use and I like the fact that there are so many options and may FREE SHIPPING. For delivery, you can choose ship to address or click and collect. And for payment pwede din Cash on Delivery. Upon check-out, you will see the delivery option, payment option, and order summary.

Online Shopping Experience at Uniqlo
On my first try, I chose Click and Collect because I don’t know how fast or slow the delivery, baka matapat pa doon sa araw na wala ako sa bahay. Then I chose Credit Card for the payment option, but the OTP failed me. Wala ko narereceived na OTP so naiinis na naman ako sa mobile signal ko. grrr
After several days, I tried it again, this time, I chose the Ship to Address and Cash on Delivery option since hindi na tuloy ang alis ko. And finally, success ang online shopping ko sa Uniqlo. I immediately received a confirmation email.
“Thank you for shopping at UNIQLO Philippines. We have received your order with details below. You will receive an email once your order has been shipped.”
On the same day, I received the shipping notification.
