Although many people prefer to shop online, there remains skepticism about purchasing electronic devices online. For example, even though online food shopping is a relatively new e-commerce business, the number of customers purchasing electrical goods online is far lower than that of consumers buying groceries.
When inquiring about the cause of this particular consumer behavior, we discovered that many people believe devices purchased online cannot be repaired, which is a waste of money.
However, this assumption is false. Most e-commerce sites selling electronics provide warranties and allow you to return defective merchandise.
In fact, there are numerous benefits to buying electronics online.
So, to assist you, we've listed the top websites for buying electronics or related items in Thailand below.
Lazada is one of the largest eCommerce marketplaces in Southeast Asia, and it is controlled by the Alibaba Group, a multinational corporation. (Rocket Internet founded the marketplace in 2012, which Alibaba later acquired.) It is aiming to become the region's Amazon.
It offers a seller site where tens of thousands of Thai companies market their wares. In addition, Lazada offers a wide variety of products directly from their Bangkok warehouses. Lazada is noted for its innovative cross-border shipping options and offers one of the largest product assortments.
They offer 100 percent buyer protection and the ability to pay with cash on delivery, credit or debit card, Paypal, over-the-counter, ATM, online banking, LINE, and K-Bank instalments. In addition, they have three shipping options: economy, standard, and express.
The prices are reasonable, and Lazada has sophisticated return processes that allow things to circulate for up to two weeks before being returned. In contrast to Shopee, Lazada charges a commission on cross-border sales ranging from 1% to 4%, depending on the goods. Selling on LazMall can result in commissions of up to 5%.
The following are the most popular electronic sections on Lazada:
There is one downside. Unfortunately, the website only delivers to addresses in Thailand; the Lazada store does not offer worldwide or international shipping.
Shopee provides internet users around the region with a one-stop online purchasing experience and allows people to select from a large range of products, including electronics.
The following are the most popular electronic sections on Shopee:
JIB is a popular eCommerce marketplace in Thailand with 1.5 million monthly visitors. The website sells desktops, laptops, and other IT items.
When it comes to Southeast Asian markets, Shopee and Lazada are available in many, but JIB is practically exclusively Thai.
The website looks similar to Lazada's but with fewer product categories. But you can get the same deals as other markets. So see for yourself by visiting the website to check the latest bargains!
This handy website provides genuine mobiles at special discounts and high-quality accessories while also giving expert reviews of their available products.
In addition, if the product is defective, it can be exchanged within seven days.
Another convenient feature of this website is how you can pay cash on delivery with purchases of 500 baht or higher.
