Wetseal Now Shipping in the PI (Could Be Worldwide?!)

Few ours before my flight, I found myself window shopping again. Online.. and I was surprised to find out that Wetseal website have read that I am browsing from Philippines, and what's even more surprising is that their prices are marked in Peso! That got me thinking that probably the store is now shipping internationally. I added an item on my cart and proceeded to check-out and yes, Wetseal is!

I am not surprised with the shipping rate and taxes though. I did a mock order just to check the rates. For an item worth Php1,542.00, shipping fee is Php2.320 and Duty Free taxes is Php816. The total is Php4,878, and this is just for a cardigan which I took from the Clearance section.

Should you hit check out?! I might think twice. I'd rather buy it in dollars. ;)
