Have you recently purchased one (or many, hehe) of our online classes? You might be wondering where to buy some of the ingredients in a class. Or you might have taken a look at your current baking equipment and realized you need to upgrade. Well, you won’t have to look far if you want to buy – why not check out The Bailiwick Academy shop or TBA shop for short? If you live in Metro Manila or abroad, you can buy from the TBA shop.
Oh yes! Want to stock your baking pantry? Want to buy an oven? Check out our products. We’ve especially stocked it in a way that will complement our online classes. You might find just what you’re looking for!
How do I buy items from The TBA Shop?
First things first. If you’ve tried signing into the stop with your The Bailiwick Academy account, it won’t work.
Don’t panic, though. The simple reason is that your account with TBA used for buying classes is different from the TBA shop. All you have to do is sign up at the shop and create a new account.
So just go through the usual process of adding to cart, and then checking out. For this example, we’re going to add the SPAR SP-800 mixer to our cart.
When you press the Check Out button, you will be directed to a screen where you will be asked to enter your details. You will also be asked how you want your item to get to you. You can pick up the item from our place in Tandang Sora in person, or via various courier services like Grab or Lalamove. Just wait for our confirmation before booking any courier or before coming over. It may take us two business days to completely pack your order.
But if you want the item delivered to you, there’s an additional Php150 for Ninjavan services, with a limit of 5 KG.
And if you’re in a different country, we will ship your order via DHL. Shipping time will vary, depending on which country you’re ordering from. It’s usually 14 business days, or even more.
Do take note that we ship worldwide except to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Italy, and France. It’s because of each country’s restrictions, so it’s totally out of our control.
The shipping fee will be displayed at checkout, depending on where you are located. For the photo below, we used California as an example destination for a different product (hey, our mixer isn’t 1 KG only, right?).
The heavier the item, the higher the shipping cost will be.
Also, depending on the destination country, there will be instances where there will be an additional carrier surcharge for remote locations. You may also incur additional costs such as an Emergency Situation Fee because of the current COVID-19 situation.
Plus, international taxes might be applied, depending on your country’s taxes policy. You’ll also have to think about customs, tariffs, and more.
Consider these carefully before going through with the purchase.
How can I pay for my purchases?
TBA shop lets you pay for your purchased goods with various payment methods, as seen in the screenshot below.
So if say your bank is down, and we have a sale ongoing, or you just really need to buy an item, you no longer have to worry about missing out. You have plenty of ways to pay for what you need.
We accept secure payments for both local & international customers via credit cards, debit cards, and PayPal. We also accept payments like Gcash, PayMaya, and direct bank deposits to our BDO and BPI accounts.
By the way, if you’re using PayPal with a credit card/debit card/PayMaya, please take note that there might be additional exchange fees brought about by PayPal.
Is an installment option available?
Yes, we have an installment option available, thanks to BillEase! Scroll to the lowest option when you get to the payment options part.
After you finish up at the TBA shop, you will be redirected to the BillEase part of the buying process. It should happen automatically, and it should look like this:
You will be able to set your installment term, and how much your downpayment is. Why do you need a downpayment? Well, according to Billease:
If you have more questions, please refer to the BillEase FAQ.
So here’s an example of setting up your payment plan.
So if we set the downpayment to Php19,600, the monthly installment is only Php10,742 for three months. If you want a lower monthly installment, you’ll have to pay a bigger downpayment.
Take note that if you want to use BillEase, you’ll need one valid ID.
If you are not redirected to the BillEase website automatically upon finishing the buying process, you’ll still get an email reminding you to complete your purchase.
You’ll also get a text message reminding you of the same thing.
I guess BillEase just wants to make sure you get your item, huh?
Oh, and if you used a mobile device to purchase from the TBA shop, you’ll have to download the BillEase app. Click on the link of the text message to go to the Google Play or the App Store.
Make sure to download and install the app to complete your installment purchase.
Speaking of installment…
Did you know that you can also now pay for enrolling in our online classes via installment? Oh, it’s true!
Let’s say you wanted to buy our latest class, Chef Joey Prats’ Arroz Con Pollo y Chorizo. When you checkout and you get to the payment options, make sure to select the one at the bottom right. See the encircled part in the photo.
Click on that part, and you’ll go to this screen:
Make sure to select the arrow on the menu. Scroll down until you see the BillEase option.
Select that option for installment options. Make sure to tick the box next to the “I agree” part before continuing. The BillEase process is the same as what was outlined in the previous section.
You might also try the Tendopay Installment option, but take note of the warning:
Make sure to apply at Tendopay and have your loan approved first before proceeding.
Do take note that when it comes to classes and installments, you’ll need to buy a certain number of classes or get a certain total. The installment option will not be available if you’re just buying one class.
Aside from the TBA shop, can we buy your products elsewhere?
If you noticed, we only mentioned Metro Manila or outside of the Philippines. What if you live in the province? Well, don’t worry – we also have shops in Lazada and Shopee.
TBA Shop on Lazada
Yes, you can find the TBA shop on Lazada!
If you’re buying other things aside from our products, our Lazada shop is a great option. And you can be sure that Lazada will deliver to your area.
TBA Shop on Shopee
If you prefer Shopee over Lazada, don’t worry. We also have a Shopee branch, if you will.
And just like with any Shopee store, you can use your vouchers or coins and also earn coins.
Again, these two are the optimal choices if you’re in the province and you want to buy our products. Your payment options are limited to the ones allowed in these apps.
Do take note though that Lazada and Shopee also have their own installment options, like LazPayLater and SPayLater, as long as you are qualified to use them.
Any other TBA shops that we should know about?
Okay, so maybe you live in Metro Manila, but you are having a hard time using our website. Or maybe our website is down. Or maybe you just don’t like to use Lazada or Shopee. What do you do?
Well, you can also buy our products from GrabMart and Gcash!
TBA Shop on GrabMart
How do you find the TBA Shop on Grab? Here are the steps.
Go to the Grab App. Look for the “Mart” option.
When you get to GrabMart, enter Bailiwick Shop into the search bar.
The TBA Shop should appear.
Shop normally as in any Grab store – browse through the products, add to cart the ones you want to buy, then check out.
Do take note that the GrabMart option is limited to locations within 6KM from our place in Tandang Sora. If your location is too far, you’ll get a notice like this (because the address we inputted was in Cavite):
TBA Shop on Gcash
What, there’s a TBA shop in Gcash? Oh yes! Here’s how to look for it.
In the Gcash main menu, click on GLife (encircled in red in the example below).
You will arrive at a menu with a search bar.
In the search window, just type Bailiwick, and the TBA shop will come out, complete with our logo.
Click on the shop to start going through our products.
The great thing about the GLife option is that if all your money is in Gcash, you can just use Gcash to pay. You won’t need other payment methods.
Take note that these alternate options mentioned are only available for the Philippine market. Also, our baking equipment like the mixer is currently not available in any of these four shops.
