Buying computer in the province

43 posts in this topic

The BIL is in a computer sciences course and needs a new laptop.  The whole thing has me a bit confused.  They want to order the computer from Lazada and have it delivered to Naval, Biliran.

 

The wife is telling me that they can order the computer from Lazada and pay for it when it shows up at LBC.   I find this very hard to believe that they would ship something that is not paid for but what do I know and it is the PI's  Any better place to buy a computer without traveling to Cebu?

 

 Is there any way I could pay for this from the US and have it shipped to Naval?   Any and all suggestions, ideas, information, thoughts or wisecracks on how to go about this would be greatly appreciated.

 

The wife and I have been married 10 years, so there are no trust issues with this.      Jester

You can pay with a credit card, I never tried that

I like the idea that I have the packet in hand before money is out my pocket

I have used both Lazada and Openpinoy in the past with satisfactory results. Yes, Lazada will COD it, seems to be their preferred method. Many items are COD only.

I am in Naval. I order both paid for and COD items from Lazada. It's delivered to the door. LBC even text me to tell me the item has been received in the local office for delivery. Why don't you try Ormocnet. A years guarantee and you dont have far to take it back. Buy it from the states and it's probably made over here anyway.

I've gotten frustrated and given up with Lazada over this. You look at an item and then input your province and barangay and it says "COD available for this item at your location."

 

And then when you go to checkout it always says "COD not available for this item at your location."

 

edit: just tried it again and got this:

I ordered a Carrier inverter air conditioning unit a few weeks ago from Lazada using their COD method. Their website claimed delivery in 2-4 days (to Cebu) and they charged me just over 2,000p for shipping. Turned out they sent the damned thing via ferry and it took 2 weeks to deliver (with some parts broken). I used epoxy putty to repair the broken parts and just avoided trying to deal with Lazada customer service at all.

      Citizens of 40 countries traveling to Vietnam now have a simplified process for obtaining travel visas directly from the Vietnam government. Vietnam recently introduced an e-Visa (electronic visa) application system for citizens of 40 countries. Vietnam e-Visas will allow citizens of these 40 countries to visit Vietnam for up to 30 days. The 40 countries included in the Vietnam e-Visa program are Armenia, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Brunei, Bulgaria, Chile, China, Columbia, Czech Republic, Cuba, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Luxembourg, Mongolia, Myanmar, Norway, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Timor Leste, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay and Venezuela. This new two-year, e-Visa pilot program will be in addition to the current Vietnam travel visa processes in place. Holders of the new Vietnam e-Visas will be allowed to arrive into Vietnam through any of the eight international airports including Noi Bai - Hanoi City, Tan Son Nhat - Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang - Da Nang City, Cam Ranh - Nha Trang City, Cat Bi - Hai Phong City, Can Tho - Can Tho City, Lien Khuong – Da Lat City and Phu Quoc - Phu Quoc Island or through any of the 13 international land border crossings. Vietnam e-Visas will cost you a flat fee of $25 USD for a 30-day, SINGLE-ENTRY visa. Your 30 days will start when you arrive into Vietnam, not when your e-Visa is approved. This visa will only be valid for a single entry into Vietnam for up to 30 days, meaning you can’t fly into Vietnam, stay for a few days, travel to Cambodia and then return to Vietnam for your flight back to your country. You can only enter Vietnam once. If you need a multiple-entry visa or want to stay in Vietnam for longer than 30 days, you can apply at www.visavietnam.ph . It is fast, cheap, easy and reliable. Vietnam e-Visa application process You will need a scanned copy of your valid passport details page and a scanned passport photo. According to the website instructions, the passport photo must be “straight looking and without glasses.” I’m assuming this means looking forward at the camera and without a smile (and nothing to do with your sexual orientation). You can apply online for a Vietnam e-Visa through this website: https://evisa.xuatnhapcanh.gov.vn/web/guest/trang-chu-ttdt. Please follow the steps below: 1.    Click on “For Foreigners.” 2.    Upload your passport photo and a copy of your passport details page. These are two separate uploads. You can’t upload your passport details page twice. 3.    Enter in all the required information. 4.    Pay your $25 USD fee and submit your application. Your fee is non-refundable even if your application is later denied. 5.    Once you have submitted your application, you will receive a “registration code.” Keep this code. 6.    At the time of this posting, the e-Visa turnaround time is approximately 3 business days. After the processing time, return back to the website and click on “Search” in the top menu bar. 7.    Enter in your registration code to search for your application to see if it was approved. 8.    If approved, you can print out your Vietnam e-Visa as proof for travel. I know this sounds a little complicated but trust me, this Vietnam e-Visa process is much simpler than the uncertainty and hoops we used to jump through. We no longer have to deal with third-party companies for visa approval letters or mail in our passports to the Vietnam consulate offices. Overall, this is a win-win for citizens of 40 countries. Travelers and it’s a step in the right direction. I’m hoping that multiple-entry visas and longer term visas will be added to this system if it proves to be successful. Disclaimer: Please understand this is a pilot program so there might be some glitches along the way. I have not personally applied for a Vietnam e-Visa through this process so I can’t test out how reliable it is. If any of our readers has any feedback or real life experiences with obtaining a Vietnam e-Visa, please share them with us in the comments section below. Thanks for reading! PhilipJ

      Took a trip down to Ho Tong Hardware to search for the NPT tap and dies that I needed. Turned out that they didn't have any in stock, but I'm not sure that the surly lady that helped me actually understood what I was looking for. A very different experience from Belmont Industrial!
