The thing is I am from the Philippines with no credit card, only a debit card. Anyone here who could teach me on how and where to buy raspberry products? Answers would be really helpful as I would be needing the Raspberry Pi for my university thesis. I hope you guys answer it. Thank you in advance.

I'm looking for :

- Legit and trusted sites where I could use debit card (such as BDO) or pay via 3rd party program (such as Dragonpay).
- Shops / stores around Manila area (or places near it such as Makati, Q.C. etc.) which sells raspberry products.
- Highly reviewed sellers online where I could meet up and negotiate.

God bless.

Try joining this facebook group. It has links to the official distributors and a few local resellers. Once in a while you can get cheap second hand ones too.

There's three ways to get Pi3 in the Philippines without a credit card:

1) OLX if you prefer meetups
2) in Metro Manila. They send via LBC.
3) Alexan which has branches in SM Megamall and Quiapo if you're in Metro Manila

Kuya Jayce;

I will be coming back to the Philippines hopefully in the next six months, if you (or anyone else) are looking for an RPi still then, I am more then happy to purchase some from Element14 and bring them over with me. The price (currently) would be PHP1865 for the Pi 3B.


PS: I was going to contact you by PM but either you have that disabled or the option is not available to me yet as I'm new and just registered.
