Because of this, businesses are forced to innovate and shift to a more digital method of marketing.

This list will feature the 100 most in-demand products in the Philippines this 2024 and for the years to come. I have clustered them into several niches that will make it easier for you to navigate.

What are the Best Products to Sell Online in the Philippines 2024?

Travel-related

Health protocols have significantly eased down and the wearing of face masks has been optional (thank God!) Finally, provinces have opened their tourist destinations and Filipinos are now into the “revenge-traveling”. With that in mind, selling the following items will still remain fruitful until 2024.

  1. 6-in-1 Travel organizer laundry pouch that you can get in different shades. Ideal for storing clothes, bra, socks and other fabrics.
  2. A dry bag or waterproof bag so you won’t get your gadgets wet when you go swimming or island-hopping
  3. A travel bottle set to keep your skincare products organized
  4. A Bucketlist travel wallet to make traveling a breeze with various pockets and storage to place your travel essentials

Summer will be approaching and these items fit for the season will be in-demand and profitable:

Home and Kitchen Products

Nowadays, Filipinos are turning their humble abodes into “smart homes”, and making one entails using “smart appliances”. Through automation of these appliances, cleaning and cooking can be a whole lot easier plus you have more time to work on your side hustle and can tend to the needs of your family more.

  1. A vacuum cleaner that’s lightweight and has strong suction (say goodbye to dust and your pet’s fur)

  4. A 8-In-1 Toaster Oven Air Fryer, so you can unleash that inner baker in you!

Health and food

The interesting thing about the pandemic, despite its obvious devastation, has motivated the people to look after their health more. This is the reason why health products are included in the top best products to sell online in the Philippines.

Along with this, plantitas and plantitos have spawned out of the quarantine. Although this may be the result of the lack of activities to pass the time, it actually bore people good outcomes. Selling homegrown vegetables and herbs is expected to be a thing next year. These include the following:

  1. Books

  4. Chew toys
  5. Grooming kits

  2. Charms
  3. Office table plants
  4. House plants
  5. Wall designs
  6. Wallpapers

As a work-at-home mom, I spend most of my time indoors. And so, I find it refreshing and calming to see my home aesthetically-pleasing. I have gradually bought wallpapers and designs online as I’ve seen many consumers doing the same too – an attest that home and office decors will be in-demand now until the succeeding year.

Freelance services

Among all that’s listed above, this has got to be the most unique niche. The shift to online businesses increased the demand for freelancers and virtual assistants.

As a freelancer, myself, this line of work merely requires a personal computer and skills to sell. Undoubtedly, it is a very profitable biz.

  1. Graphic designers
  2. Animators
  3. Web developers
  4. Social media managers
  5. Content writers (read our guide here on how to become one)
  6. Virtual assistants (check out our guide here)
  7. Copywriters (check out our guide here)

Is there a business that is related to outsourcing the freelancing services mentioned above? Yes, there is, and it is called a Drop Servicing business wherein you produce or deliver a “service” to a client. This business requires virtually zero investment and is very easy to start. Some drop servicing ideas niches can be found in our article about 16 Drop Servicing Ideas (Zero Investment & Easy!) Philippines.

How to know your target market in the Philippines?

In order to effectively become a business owner and make it profitable, one must stick to a particular niche. This aids in customer recognizability and association. If you sell various products of different niches then the probability of customer confusion is higher.

Another tip would be to watch out for trends. Remember how dalgona coffee, milktea, and samgyupsal were a hit? Now brainstorm and look around what you think is the latest craze nowadays that won’t be fizzling out in the next few years.

Stick with what you are most comfortable in selling. Your items will define your target market, not the other way around – that is, unless you choose your niche based on the number of customers within that category.

How to enter your target market in the Philippines?

Face it, the competition is higher today than it was before. As many sellers surface on Social Media platforms like Facebook and Instagram, it’s not enough that you have a winning product. Learn to maximize your capability of reaching potential customers who are beyond the borders of your city or your country by incorporating some effective and time-tested tips for online selling in the Philippines.

An effective method to identify and enter target markets is through the utilization of Facebook ads and pixels. The pixels, in a nutshell, narrow down the Facebook population into your target market based on your business niche. While Facebook ads, boost your business posts to the people intended to see your products. By doing this, figuratively, you are serving them the food they prefer to consume. Thus, the conversion of prospects to buying customers is high.
