How to shop?
The first thing you need to do is download the app from the app stores mentioned above. Upon launching the app, you can sign in as a guest or create your own account.
It will ask your permission to access your location services to help determine the closest mall that can accommodate deliveries to your area.
Next is to specify your location. You can also choose the serving mall you prefer. Right now there’s SM City North EDSA, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, and SM Fairview.
Once you’ve found the product you want to purchase, all you need to do is add it to your cart. There are two carts available, one is for Food and the other is for Shop.
Once you’re ready to purchase, just tap on Checkout. You can now add your complete delivery details, choose between In Store Pick up or Next Day Deliver, and add SM Vouchers if you have any.
You can pay for your purchase using a credit/debit card or cash. Once payment is confirmed, you’ll receive a confirmation in the app and in your registered e-mail address.
Registered users can order via delivery method within 10km distance (Non-Food) and 5km distance (Food & Beverage) from the chosen mall.

Shopping at SM Cyberzone
Gadgets are in demand nowadays, especially laptops. People flock malls to scout for the best deals and see the devices personally at SM Cyberzone. You can bring most of that experience online through the SM Malls Online app and you may find it easier to spot deals. If you have a specific item in mind, you can just type it in the search box, but if you want to just browse around, there’s an option to sort the items by price from high to low and vice versa or filter it by price if you have a budget in mind.
If you have a particular gadget shop in mind, you can easily browse the shops by brand. Official concept stores like Acer, Cherry Mobile, Huawei, Dell, HP, JBL, Lenovo, OPPO, and Xiaomi, are here. Stores like MemoXpress, Villman, Asianic, Compink, PC Express, and PC Worx, are also here. Basically, the whole SM Cyberzone is at the palm of your hands.
How’s the overall experience?
The experience is quite enjoyable as you’re able to browse shops and brands you’re familiar with, as well as discover other stores that are currently not available at your nearest SM Mall. The app is also easy to use and it’s a great place to scout for the lowest price and discounted items. You also don’t have to worry about fake items as the products offered come from trusted and authentic brands.
