OFWs searching for techie gifts – PricePanda
MANILA, Philippines – Gadgets and gaming consoles appear to be the big draw for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) coming home to the Philippines for the holidays.
Price comparison website PricePanda noted the following as the top 5 searched-for products on the site:
- Sony Playstation 4
- Apple iPhone 5C
- Samsung Galaxy S4
- Samsung Galaxy Note 3
- LG Nexus 5
PricePanda said that most of these search requests came from outside the Philippines, leading to the idea that OFWs are searching for gifts for their families.
PricePanda CEO Christian Schiller explained, "In the past month, we saw around 17% of our Philippine website traffic come from foreign countries. These are significantly higher figures than in the previous months” and point towards overseas workers visiting PricePanda to make better e-commerce decisions. – Rappler.com
