Go Shopping Philippines (GSP) Founder and CEO, Neil Garcia La-as’ determination to pursue his dream of building a huge digital mall, with all the amenities of a real physical mall and more, emanated from his frustrations in his personal experience with the existing online shopping platforms. He, oftentimes asked himself, when will people buying online be rest assured that they get their money’s worth? He goes on asking: “When will people enjoy a digital lifestyle that is very convenient, secure, and with lots of amenities and perks? when will people buying online have full satisfaction with the authenticity of the products they buy?” The fallacy and the consequential disappointment of people in buying online is what prompted Go Shopping Philippines to rise aiming to become a “force for good”. Its main advocacy is to ensure that products sold in Go Shopping Philippines are genuine and true to its promise of authenticity according to the descriptions and branding displayed on site. “In Go Shopping Philippines, we scrutinize brands and the legitimacy of their products so you are protected from fake items,” La-as expressed, “You can shop in Mindanao, Manila, the US, Europe, the Middle East, and back to Mindanao and obtain exactly the product you have paid for”.
Go Shopping Philippines is also being true to its Filipino identity. The Company’s goals include establishing cooperation with government agencies, local government units, and NGOs to promote the culture and beauty of the Philippines and its people. According to GSP’s Brand Manager, Dan B. Sola, GSP always considers the past, present and future cultural milieu of our land and our people. We are linking up with government bodies and NGOs to establish cooperation in helping MSMEs promote quality original local products, elevating these to cater to both the local and global markets. In our brand identity standards, Go Shopping Philippines highlights the beauty of our country not only in our amazing natural resources but also in the beauty of our cultural diversities as a people. Here, not only are we able to target relatability of our content, but also enable us to address areas for the country’s growth which we can embody in our marketing efforts” Sola said.
