How To Pay
Abubot.ph is an online e-commerce store just like Lazada or Amazon. We do not have a physical store. We only operate online. (As such, we don't do "Meet Ups" or "Pick Ups").

To order any of our products, just select an item(s) you like to buy, click "add to cart", enter your shipping and billing address and then select from the following payment options below on checkout:
1. CASH ON DELIVERY (COD)
- COD is Minimum order of P1,000. (Orders not meeting this minimum will be cancelled) and for METRO MANILA ONLY
- Covered Areas are cities falling under Metro Manila ONLY (see complete list of cities and municipalities here). Any order with areas not covered will be cancelled.
- Please prepare EXACT AMOUNT (Order cost + Shipping). Check your order confirmation email for the exact amount.
- Make yourself available when we deliver your order. (You will get an e-mail and text message informing you that your parcel is on its way)
- You can leave the money with a representative, just make sure you leave a letter of authorization and photocopy of your ID with that person.

- Incomplete Name and/or address
- Does not reach the required P1,000 minimum order

2. BANK DEPOSIT (Physical Branches)
- If you don't have a Paypal or a credit card, the next best thing is to deposit the money to our bank account. We have a BDO and a BPI account. You can choose either of the two.

- Just deposit the amount of your order and then email us the scanned copy or photo of the deposit slip to email@example.com
- Once we confirm receipt of the payment (after you email a copy of the deposit slip), we will ship your items ASAP. We will reply to you our confirmation within the day you sent the email to us.

OTHER GUIDELINES AND COMPANY POLICIES
- Currently, we only ship items to residents of the Philippines. (From Aparri to Jolo!).
- Due to security reasons (and large volume of orders), we do not do "Meet Ups". Sorry for that.
- We also do not have a physical store. (we operate purely as an online e-commerce business). So we do not have "pick ups" at the moment.
- We process (prepare, package and label) your order on the day received (for paid orders and bank deposits) and then ship it out the following work-day. We ship out paid packages from Monday to Friday only (no shipping on weekends).
- We have a cut-off time of 4:00pm daily. Any order placed after 4:00pm will be processed (sorted, packed and paper-work done) the next working day and then shipped the following day.
- If the item is "Sold Out" please click the "Notify Me" button and input your e-mail. We will send you a message as soon as stocks are back.
- "Fulfilled" status on your account does NOT mean it was delivered. It means that it has been sent out through our courier. It is on its way to you.
- We also have a Facebook Page that you could "like" and monitor for new arrivals, restocks, events, news and more!
*Abubot will only ship the item upon confirmation and receipt of the cash (in the case of Bank Deposits)
