A food delivery service app and a beauty and wellness ecommerce platform recently diversified their offerings amid the continued online shopping trend.

Filipinos have turned to online shopping when the national government implemented the enhanced community quarantine or the nationwide lockdown mid-March this year.

Since then, the e-commerce industry boomed with Filipino shoppers now having the habit of shopping online for their groceries and other daily essentials.

A report of AI solutions firm iKala that surveyed the social shopping behavior of 12,000 consumers and over 1,000 social sellers across the Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore and Thailand, showed that the country recorded 36% growth in terms of orders online.
