eLBC Direct: Bringing the Philippines at Par with International Standards of Online Retail

elbc ecommerce websitePress / Blog Release : 

Who wouldn’t want to venture into a $211 billion industry with a market of over 61 million consumers worldwide?  No one.

Statistics reveal that everyone has joined in the online shopping bandwagon—and the Philippines is not exempt from this. The past years has seen an upsurge of Filipino online retailers that range from individual entrepreneurs to company subsidiaries. Yet, despite the increasing popularity of online shopping in the Philippines, Rene Fuentes observes that there is still much to be desired in the local e-commerce scene.

“A seamless multi-channel experience – this is what primarily characterizes renowned online retail networks such as Amazon and E-bay. Yet, in the Philippines, complaints of unsecured transactions, delayed deliveries and unreasonable rates still abound.”

With this in mind, Rene Fuentes has embarked upon the task of bringing the Philippines at par with international standards of online retailing through eLBC Direct Inc.

“We believe that seamless online retail can only be achieved by being consumer-centric. At eLBC, customers are not seen as transactions, but as human beings with needs to be served at the soonest time. We believe in keeping the best relations possible with our valued customers by coming up with services and programs attuned to their needs,” asserts Rene Fuentes.

This post is NOT a Paid post

  • This is quite the project he is taking on but I think it has great potential in opening the world wide web more fully to the world. I am excited to track his progress

  • Funny there is a PayPal banner on this page because I was going to recommend something like PayPal as a means to rectify the unsecured transactions issue as they have no problem dipping into the bank accounts of scammers. On the other hand I wouldn’t pass up that market for fear of losing out on a couple sales that are illegitimate.

  • What we need in the Philippines is good online payment which would allow local merchants to receive payments for their products and services without having to go through 3rd parties.

    so be aware…

  • What Filipinos need is something that could let them purchase an item on the internet which can only be bought by people in a particular country which is not the Philippines just like these sites:
    Ebay.com
    Amazon.com
    and VulcanZone.com
