Now Open: PinoyDVD Online Store
« on: Apr 23, 2006 at 07:43 AM »
It's not really part of the community since only the name and likeness were licensed, but we contributed a LOT to the information architecture and navigation of the site since we're avid online shoppers.

Only the Philippine site is operational right now but medium-term plans include HK and Korean storefronts. Negotiations are still ongoing so keep your fingers crossed.

MC and Visa cards are accepted through a secure HK gateway but billed in Php through one of the local banks. Pretty nifty. Shipping is via Air2100 (local) and FedEx (international). GCash and mol (mobius online) payments coming soon.

If you'd like to be part of the beta program for the online store please PM me. Soft launch is in May.

Cool! Congrats on the licensing fees. May we know if this is affiliated with any shops/companies we'd be familiar with?

Sign me up!

Whoops. This isn't a PM.  ;D

Nope, no affiliations. It's an independent effort. Target buyers are OFWs who want to order DVDs for themselves or order for their relatives here. Local residents can easily shop online as well.

Since the Philippine storefront is OMB registered, it will source stock from the local distributors. No other region or limited editions will be available -- at least for now. Pricing will be standard but promo titles and shipping discounts will be available from time to time.

So this means only local titles will be availalbe? :)

Since no Astroplus/vision has complete stock (Even Podium doesn't have some titles I found in other Astro), an online store could literally have all the current releases in stock as long as there are in the distributor's inventory...  beats shop hopping for those hard-to-find titles...sweet...

Sana in the future, they could act like e-2-door for R1 releases...then again, does local laws allow such parallel importations?

Nope, no parallel imports allowed unfortunately. The online store won't have all the titles available initially. The distribs aren't realtime so it's hard to commit stock that may not be there after all.

Just a bit of a delay on the soft launch. The product descriptions are being encoded and converted from other databases abroad.

Sorry, still recovering from a serious bout with the flu last week. Was ordered by the doctor to stay in bed for 5 days so that pretty much killed my online social life.  ;D

Anyway, beta access is open tonight. Will start PMing you guys later this afternoon with your log-in information.

Should've gotten a second opinion. I know a doctor who would've recommended that you to stay in front of computer for 5 days, instead.  ;D

Beta access will be fully functional - payments securely accepted already? Looking forward to it. Good luck and congrats again on this new venture.

Ditto.

Are the prices going to be cheaper than those online stores that carry Pinoy films?

Could be. The site's in beta for this quarter and will ship only to Philippine addresses. Regarding Viva, Star and Regal releases for delivery abroad, we'll keep you posted.

Quick Comments:

1. The current selection is pretty small, and seems limited to Warner R3's?

2. The Television titles lay-out would be more attractive if the seasons appeared chronologically on the page, and perhaps were labelled uniformly? (For example: Smallville has some seasons listed as "The Complete Nth Season" while other listed as "Season N DVD Boxset")

3. It seems a bit more expensive? Before Sunrise/Sunset have been listed as currently selling for Php 275 each on these forums, but the price for these titles at pinoydvd.biz is listed as Php 483.64?

Thank you for joining our beta group and visiting the site, Mr. Hankey. We are still entering more titles into our catalog and negotiating terms with other distributors. Warner's selection on PinoyDVD is about 700 titles.
- We are still revising title entries because distributors are not consistent on their end as well when cataloging titles. We are aware of disparities in the entries including problems with genre classification.
- Prices are not final as well because Warner is bringing them down across the board and we will update as soon as we receive complete listing. The retail stores are adjusting by batches but we will do one big update.

Thanks again for visiting!
