5 Best Deal Websites in the Philippines
In Decemeber 2008, I remember that Groupon (was only available in Chicago) requires a minimum number of deal buyers to make the deal on and it only offers one deal per day. It also has a cool slider for the quantity of items you would like to purchase and the total voucher price automatically adjusts accordingly. However, the game has changed in the middle of 2011 when most Filipino online users embraced the usage of e-commerce or they are getting comfortable transacting online.
Today, deal websites have more to offer be it exciting activities, local and international travel tour packages to discounted gadgets and accessories. So I decided to work on a list of current group buying websites in the Philippines that already built credibility and as a metric I’ve included the domain authority and number of their fans on facebook to date.

Groupon or Beeconomic came in the Philippine in November 2010. Groupon’s entry in the Philippine market is a good thing not only for bargain hunting fanatics but for the economy as a whole as it stimulated the creation of more group buying sites as it generated more jobs, exposure of brands and an opportunity to save.
