Electronic devices may not be as essential as food and medicines, but we need them to survive the lockdown nonetheless.
Gadgets enable us to work from home and keep us busy or entertained while on quarantine. More importantly, they help us stay connected to loved ones who are away from us.
You don’t have to wait for what seems like forever to get a replacement for your broken laptop or mobile phone. You can order from an online gadget store and have the item delivered or pick it up directly at the shop.
For your home office or gaming needs, take your pick from this list of legitimate online gadget stores in the Philippines that let you shop from home during the quarantine.
Complink is a reseller of laptops, desktop computers, monitors, printers, tablets, and other IT products for home and business use. Although it accepts online orders, Complink doesn’t offer a delivery service yet. Customers can either claim their items at Complink’s head office in Pasig or book a delivery service that will pick up their order and deliver it to their home.
EasyPC sells laptops, printers and inks, webcams, accessories, and other products for your work-from-home and gaming needs. Orders from this online gadget store are accommodated from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily and can be picked up from one of EasyPC’s available stores either directly or through a delivery service.

Known for its electronics stores in Gilmore, QC and other parts of the Philippines, PC Express has made its operations available online from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily during the ECQ.
You can order a smartphone (Realme, OPPO, Huawei, Samsung, etc.), laptop, monitor, keyboard, mouse, pocket Wi-Fi device, router, and other IT essentials from PC Express.
For your home office needs, PCWORX provides laptops, printers, webcams, pocket Wi-Fi, and other computer hardware and software. During the quarantine, orders can be picked up from the PCWORX store on Thursdays and Saturdays only, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The leading Apple product retailer in the Philippines has opened its online gadget store for your tech needs. You can shop for iPhones (with models ranging from iPhone 6S to iPhone 11 Pro Max), iPads, MacBooks, AirPods, and other Apple devices. Orders can either be delivered to your home or picked up from Power Mac Center branches in Quezon City or Makati.
For the tech-savvy, Urban Gadgets offer an array of premium lifestyle gadgets and accessories, including smartphones, speakers, and headphones. Work-from-home essentials such as AC adapters, charging cables and hubs, storage drives, keyboards, and even portable generators are also available for online orders.
Another online gadget store to consider for your home office needs is VillMan Computers. You can shop online for laptops, printers, and networking products and have your order picked up via a delivery service on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
DataBlitz offers 100% original games, software, and accessories for various gaming platforms such as Nintendo, Playstation, and Xbox. Its product catalog includes PS4 and Nintendo Switch consoles, games, and accessories.
After placing an order on the DataBlitz online gadget store, you have up to 48 hours to pay via online banking. Your order will be canceled if you fail to pay within that timeframe.
Em’s Emporium buys, trades, and sells brand-new and second-hand Nintendo Switch and PS4 units and other video gaming gadgets. Online orders are accepted and delivered via Lazada or Shopee.
The Game One Tech Store is an online shop that carries iPhones, Android smartphones, gaming laptops, and consoles for Nintendo, Playstation, and Xbox.
Gameline is the go-to online gadget store for reasonably-priced PS4 and Nintendo Switch consoles, games, and accessories. Orders must be paid online within 24 hours to avoid cancellation.
GameXtreme Philippines allows online retail and wholesale purchases for gaming gadgets, consoles, and bundle packs. Mobile phones, tablets, and karaoke consoles and accessories are also available for online orders.
Before ordering from an online gadget store, check first if there’s any restriction implemented by your homeowners association or local government unit on deliveries of electronic products. If you own a car, your best bet is to drive to the shop’s physical branch to pick up your order.
If your order will be delivered to your home, expect difficulty in booking pick-up services and delivery delays due to the quarantine. You’ll be the one to pay for the cost of pick-up/delivery service if you book a third-party courier.
To avoid inconveniences, you can wait until the EQC is lifted before buying from an online gadget store—if the item you need is not that urgent.
