Guides Where I Buy My KPop Merch

2:29 AM

Ever since I started getting myself into the KPop world, I didn’t know that there are plenty of online sellers where you can get your desired merch from an idol group you stan. Since we’re in the Philippines, I understand that this is really how things work since merch is imported from Korea, unless it has a local brand partner to produce them here otherwise. 


Buying merch online, either on Facebook’s marketplace or Twitter isn’t all that different than buying from a regular online shopping platform or physical store that you’re familiar with.



One thing I’ve learned from buying online is to stick to shops I know and trust. But of course, not all the time the shop you constantly transact with has all the merch you need. This is the time you need to be keen on looking for other shops to provide what you need as an alternative. 


Remember that it is important to ensure that you’re purchasing from a legit online seller to avoid being scammed. Always check reviews, pricing, proof of transactions, red flags, or any small indicators that can help you judge whether or not the shop is safe to buy.


Here I have listed the shops where I constantly buy the merch I want and they’ve been tested and proven to be reliable. 


For all my EXO albums, @littletwinseoul is my go-to shop. All my transactions with them were smooth; all my merch arrived in safe and mint condition.


Not to mention, all pre-orders were always the cheapest compared to other shops since it's a non-profit seller.



Also, on the list is @kpopandadavao for my personalized, customized needs. So, if you need anything fan-made and printed, it's the shop to go to. 


You can even make your pictures into photo cards. Easy to deal with.



Not a shop, but I know @analgesica1 is a rockstar. 


Ren offers the cheapest EXO pc available in the market (from yangdo and other suppliers) and I won't judge if she's your preferred account to hoard EXO pc.



If you have the budget, KPopFeverPH on Shopee is the perfect shop for you. Although they're a bit expensive, they can ship your merch right away straight from Korea & you should have it in 2 weeks.


There's a 10% less & free shipping using shopeepay.



While the list appears to be short, I have transacted to many online sellers and shopping platforms already, but I would rather highlight a few that I feel most at ease dealing with.
