If you want to make sure that you’re cryptocurrency holdings are secure enough while being able to use them, getting a reputable hardware wallet like the Trezor Model One or the Trezor Model T is easily the answer. But, where do you buy one in the Philippines?

Buying from local stores

Since Trezor hardware wallets are pretty reputable and already quite well-known worldwide, it might be a bit uncommon to find some for sale on physical stores in your city, especially when you’re in those bigger and well-known Philippine malls and stores in cities like Metro Manila and Cebu. But, should you actually buy from them?

The answer: No. While it can definitely be quite difficult to fake a Trezor wallet or to physically alter one for malicious purposes, it’s still technically possible.

Buying from Shopee, Lazada eBay, OLX, and other websites

Hardware wallets being sold on eCommerce sites

While there are definitely reputable Shopee Philippines sellers, Lazada sellers, eBay Philippine sellers, OLX sellers, and other online sellers that are selling Trezor devices, we still suggest against buying from these sites.

Why? While the chances might be a bit low, there are still chances of certain sellers’ Trezor wallet inventory being mixed up with other sellers’ inventory, causing you to possibly be sent a used or modified Trezor device.

Where should I purchase them instead?

If you want to be 100% secure that you actually bought a brand new, legitimate, unopened, and untampered Trezor Model One or Model T, the best place to buy your hardware wallet is still on the official Trezor website. That way, you’re severely decreasing the risks of your device being fake, used, or tampered with.

While buying from the official Trezor website might be a bit more costly due to the shipping fees, save yourself the future headaches of you wondering if you purchased a nice and legitimate Trezor hardware wallet if you bought one somewhere else.

QUICK NOTE

We’ve been hearing about a lot of people from the Philippines that are having troubles with the local Philippine Customs department concerning their Trezor packages.

To circumvent such problems, we heavily suggest using middleman shipping companies such as ShippingCart.

  1. Create a ShippingCart account on ShippingCart.com
  2. Grab your ShippingCart U.S. address
  3. Order a Trezor hardware wallet on the official Trezor website using your ShippingCart address as the delivery address, NOT your Philippine address
  4. Once your Trezor package is received in your ShippingCart address, it’s now time for your Trezor package to be shipped to your Philippines home address
  5. Wait 12-20 days
  6. Win!
