Is thick bubble wrapping necessary for online purchases?

Some Filipino online users argue thick bubble wrapping of goods can’t be helped sometimes, citing courier mishandling and customer demands.

One user pointed out less packaging means less costs for the seller. The Facebook user said, “Syempre pabor kay seller ang less balot para less expense sa packaging. Pero dahil nais ng seller na maging maayos at safe ang item pagdating kay buyer, napipilitan nalang si seller ibalot ng makapal para hindi masira ang item. To sum it all, dapat ayusin ng courier ang paghahandle ng package para less balot nalang.”

Another user echoed that bubble wrapping is often preferred because some couriers are not careful with handling their items.

The user said, “Mahal naman kase ang carton kesa plastic. As buyer ng mga online shop, dinadami ko pag order sa isang store…para i-box na lang lahat. Gusto ko rin na naka bubble wrap kasi ang courier walang pake sa gamit or package na kanilang hinahandle.”
