Giorgio Armani once said that “a watch is one of the most important things that you buy, it says a lot about a person.”
That’s true. Despite the presence of mobile phones, which can also serve as a timekeeper and time-teller, many people are still willing to pay a hefty price for a watch. In fact, there are still e-commerce sites that are dedicated solely for watches.
One of them is WatchPortal.
Who is WatchPortal?
WatchPortal started in December 2015 as an e-commerce site that focuses mainly on selling watches. Unlike other watch sellers, WatchPortal sells the items at affordable prices.
Through their website, customers will have access to a wide selection of watches sourced directly from suppliers and authorized distributors.
Brands WatchPortal carries include:
What about payment?
There are several options. It includes:
- Cash on Delivery
- Credit card
- Bank transfer though BDO, BPI, and Metrobank
- Bayad Center
- Cebuana Lhuillier
Although these are safe and secured channels, paying through any of these options means you need to pay in full.
Here’s a surprise: WatchPortal teamed up with BillEase to offer a flexible payment terms for customers who don’t have a credit card. Aside from the payment options mentioned above, you can now pay for your items on installment basis.
