Indonesian online shopping websites
Online shopping was convenient even before we were strongly advised to stay at home to prevent a virus from spreading. Now that we should absolutely stay inside as much as possible, Indonesian online shopping websites aren’t only convenient, but also necessary.
Whether you need to stock up on some daily essentials, get your kids toys to keep them occupied, or treat yourself to a new gaming console, here are 8 Indonesian online shopping websites to get what you need so you don’t have to leave the house.
1. Tokopedia – Indonesia’s largest online shopping mall

Tokopedia is the largest online marketplace in Indonesia. You can get just about anything there – from kitchen towels to brand new or used electronics. Those of you who are working from home and need a caffeine boost can even get coffee beans from local cafes.
It’s not just a place to shop, but also a place where you can pay your phone, TV, internet, and other bills in one place online.
While the website is user-friendly, the mobile app is worth downloading too because it makes tracking your purchases easier. You can contact each seller directly via the convenient chat feature, so if you have any questions, you don’t won’t need to go through a middle person.
There are several payment options available, which include bank transfers, credit card payments, OVO payment, and even cash payments at any Indomaret minimart branch.
2. Shopee – offers deals on lots of products and services, and even delivers ayam geprek

If you’re looking for good deals, head over to Shopee because you can get affordable food, clothes and other fashion accessories, and toys to keep your kids entertained throughout the self-quarantine period.
In addition to offering a wide range of products, Shopee has also expanded into the culinary field with Shopee Geprek, which is available in 20 cities across Indonesia. Enjoy ayam geprek meal delivery while staying safe at home.
The Shopee website and app are easy to use, and payment options include ShopeePayLater, credit card payments, bank transfers, payments at Indomaret and AlfaMart, as well as cash on delivery (COD).

Indonesians who work irregular schedules or late shifts, or who are living in temporary accommodation without a permanent city address used to worry about clashing time slots when it came to arranging for delivery for their online shopping hauls.
But with up to 15 delivery options available, Blibli will make you feel more at ease if you fall within this group of people. It also offers multiple payment methods including the convenient GoPay and bank transfers.
Blibli is also counted among Indonesia’s most used online shopping websites, not surprising thanks to its variety of products. Secure your food stock by ordering fresh meat and fish, cooking oil and kecap manis (sweet soy sauce), and a dozen packs of Indomie. Or order some vitamins to boost your immune system and help ward off the sniffles.
Apart from these essentials, Blibli also sells electronics, household, and cleaning items including detergent and sanitizer – which can come in handy because now’s the time to keep your house as clean as possible.

For online deal-spotters, Indonesia’s range of electronic payment platforms and their various perks and cashback offers are all part of the small thrills of online shopping.
One of the benefits of shopping at Bukalapak is that you can pay with DANA. While it offers all the conventional payment methods, those who have DANA accounts will be able to get through the transaction process a lot quicker as it is an electronic wallet.
In addition to that, the website is easy to navigate, so you can browse through the catalog of items without losing your temper over pages that take way too long to load.
5. Orami – plenty of supplies for young children

Those of you who have very young children, siblings, or nieces and nephews should definitely bookmark Orami. This website specializes in providing diapers, baby formula, baby-friendly shampoo and soap, and other essentials for little ones.
Even online shoppers understandably need to speak to a real human being once in a while if they have questions about a particular product or order. You can telephone customer service from 9AM to 6PM every day except Sundays and public holidays.
You can make payments via bank transfer, credit card, and cash on delivery in major Indonesian cities and towns.

While not originally from Indonesia, Lazada’s Indonesian website has become popular among locals, especially when it comes to clothing items such as hoodies, cardigans, dresses, and many others.
Like other online shopping websites, however, Lazada also has a variety of categories ranging from furniture to sports equipment. Being inside for too long can make you feel lethargic, so it might be a good idea to get a yoga mat or an exercise band.

It’s always been a good place to look for electronics such as the Nintendo Switch – which is perfect for killing time while self-isolating – but JD.ID has also since expanded its range of products to household items and skincare products, among other things.
With payment options such as GoPay, Kreditplus, and the usual bank transfers and credit cards, you can now order snacks, kitchen appliances, and even music instruments, in addition to a wide range of electronics. You can also pay your bills through the website.
