The first time I was introduced to Funko POP is when a friend of mine shared a photo of Eve and Wall-E together. At that moment, I fell in love with those cuties! So, I immediately liked FUNKO Facebook Page, searched about Funko POP (category of POPs available), joined local Funko POP Facebook Groups and lastly, searched for a website or fan page wherein I can buy them immediately using Paypal. The latter part was hard.
Finding an online store that sells the Funko POP you want and takes Paypal as a mode of payment was not easy. There are a lot of traders online but most of them prefer bank deposits. Well, I don’t blame them. A lot of scammers are using Paypal and the fact that you can’t use your cash immediately is something most people won’t prefer either.
Luckily, I found several sites that sells Funko POP and accepts Paypal as a mode of payment.
I got my first Funko POP from Abubot where I bought the regular Olaf at 550PHP and paid 150PHP for shipping. I used Paypal for settling the invoice in which everything was fast, awesome and cool. It took a few days before the package arrived.
The second online store, where I got my Dancing Groot, Elsa and Anna Funko POPs, is NewHavenPH. Though I was not able to buy the POPs through their online store, I got them via their Facebook Fan Page representative. So basically, I still bought it from them, right?
Anyway, I paid for the POPs and also the shipping fee using Paypal too. The transaction was smooth and fast. On the next day, they shipped my orders and after another day, I got my orders safely inside a box. Aside from that, I wasn’t expecting that each POP I ordered comes with a free box protectors. It was really an awesome surprise!
There are many other online stores (or Facebook Fan Page Stores) wherein you can order Funko POPs online using Paypal as a mode of payment here in the Philippines but since I don’t have any experience with them yet, I am not including them here. I will just update this list once I’ll be able to buy Funko POPs from them. Soon!
