Shopaholics, staying at home ain't all doom and gloom. Thanks to these online stores, you can shop ‘til you drop and have your goods home-delivered.
Here in Indonesia, high import taxes mean Amazon and eBay are off the menu when it comes to giving our credit cards a good workout on the web. But luckily, there are plenty of Indonesian online stores and Bali-based shopping sites that sell all of life’s essentials without the extortionate add-ons. And with the current Coronavirus crisis, the best bit is that they deliver direct to your doorstep…
So whether you want to shop fashion, food, home decor or you simply need to stock up on your fave beauty brands, here are the very best online shopping sites in Bali and Indonesia for your next social-distancing shopping spree.
Where to buy home & lifestyle goods online
Like the Indonesian version of Amazon, Tokopedia is where you can shop all of your fave creature comforts from overseas – already imported and delivered within days.

Top tip: shop on your desktop rather than on mobile and the entire website translates to English.
