Updated: Oct 14, 2020
Online shopping can be very convenient in Korea. From not having to carry heavy things home to finding cheaper prices, internet shopping is simply the best way to shop. Some websites in Korea even offer same and next day delivery options. While G-Market is one of the most popular websites for foreigners because it's partially in English, you may be missing out on a lot of great deals and products on other sites. We've compiled a list of our 23 favorite websites that carry just about everything you could possibly want.
Now, you might be thinking... that's great and all, but I can't read Korean and the payment systems on these websites are just too difficult. Don't worry, if you need help with product details, delivery support or paying for items Wonderful's bilingual personal assistants can help. They can take the pain away and make everything easier. Just take your time to browse and shop, then send links to save time and chat instantly with a live assistant. Or if you're short on time, you can also just send your shopping list over and get everything done for you. International delivery of items is possible with most things as well.
Discount Online Retailers
These websites usually carry a variety of products like clothes, household products, furniture, toys, electronics, gifts, books, sporting equipment, pet supplies, food, and even travel packages. Some of these websites also sell products that are imported from other countries so it's important to check delivery timelines especially if you're in a bit of rush.
For groceries, same day deliveries are often possible if you order your items early enough in the day. If same day delivery schedules are full, you can usually expect to get things delivered the next day. If you order perishable items, cold foods will be packed on ice to make sure everything is delivered fresh.
The best thing about getting furniture delivered is not having to worry about how you will get a large item home. You can also have someone build and assemble your furniture too.
