  • LIST: Applications Offering ‘Pabili’ Services
  • With the advent of delivery services that at present cover almost anything one can buy, the existence of different delivery couriers is no stranger to consumers anymore. And if it makes internet shopping any better, a lot of these have now also been offering pabili services that are even handier in light of our stay-at-home situation. 

    What is pabili service and how does it work?

    Pabili is a Filipino word that means to ask someone to buy something for you—which in essence is what the namesake service is all about. Just open the delivery app of your choice, tap the pabili service icon, and from there type in the store you need to shop from and indicate which items you need.

    This is not limited to just food, so you can definitely have whatever items you need from the stores outside. However, the only downside of such is that the amount you can have the riders buy is limited from app to app.

    But to help you decide which pabili service you would want to avail next time to maximize the experience, we looked into some of the most prominent delivery applications in the Philippines and summed up the information you would likely want to know.
