With the extension of the ECQ for major areas such as Metro Manila, logistics for social sellers remains a challenge. As a seller trying to keep things “business as usual”, we must find ways to continue delivering to our customers.
Great news! There are still options for online sellers to ship their goods during the ECQ.
Location, location, location
We listed our preferred ECQ Logistics services depending on the buyer’s location. We focused on deliveries within Metro Manila, and Provincial deliveries
Within Metro Manila
In most cases, a motorcycle would be enough to deliver your goods, but for some, it might take something much bigger.
Pouches, and Boxes up to 20kg (Food items, Medicine, Baby/Maternity related items)
Big items (Bulk Order of PPEs/Baby Diapers/Detergent, bulky items that need additional care for delivery such as UV/Steam Sterilizers, Power tools)

Sanitize the Merchandise
Here are some tips on how to ensure your buyers that their items are handled with utmost care.
- First, wear a mask and gloves while packing the items
- Sanitize your gloves using a 70% Ethyl alcohol solution after each package
- Sanitize the packing area before you begin
- Always have a bottle of alcohol or wipes close to you
- Lastly, properly seal the pouch or box with an additional layer of tape
Overall, it’s safe to say that online sellers shouldn’t worry too much about logistics during ECQ as there are still various options to choose from. They can focus their efforts more on selecting which products to sell and how to sell them online.
