We can deliver to most local destinations in the Philippines, based on the serviceable areas of our authorized couriers. Should your shipping area be non-serviceable, the package can be picked up at the nearest branch of our couriers or an alternative serviceable address that we will request from you. You will receive a call or an email from our Customer Service regarding the delivery. Our selling facility is also able to deliver to most countries worldwide as per our courier partners’ serviceable areas. Should your shipping area be outside the delivery area (ODA) of our courier partners, you will be notified and asked to settle an ODA surcharge prior to the delivery.
