Let’s go, mga budol besties! Get those online carts (and wallets) ready, because IKEA has officially opened their (virtual) doors to Philippine customers with the launch of their 24/7 online store starting Wednesday, November 3.
Customers can now add to their carts as many IKEA home and work essentials their budol-ready hearts desire, including home decor, furniture, lighting fixtures, shoes, clothes, and even children’s toys. Customers just need to create their own IKEA website account first (this is different from the IKEA Family Club account) before checking out their cart. Online payment via credit card and Gcash are accepted.
For delivery options, you can choose from either IKEA’s truck, parcel delivery, or click and collect. Orders that are less than 30 kg in weight and 1.8 meters in length and height are considered parcel orders. If it exceeds this, that is qualified for a truck delivery. Customers can also choose to pick up their orders themselves from select “collection points” once the items are ready for pick-up.
Truck delivery orders are currently limited to Metro Manila customers in the meantime, but parcel deliveries can reach up to Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, parts of Quezon, Bulacan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Bataan, and Subic.
In September, IKEA Philippines took its website on a test run, allowing only a limited capacity of customers and orders.
