Is there an Amazon in Taiwan?
As it turns out, there is no Amazon in Taiwan, but there are many other useful online stores.
Each one has its own special features, so some people seem to use them differently.
There is a wide range of online stores, from those specializing in cosmetics to those specializing in household goods.
Let’s take a look at some of the major online stores.

Personally recommended online stores
The site I would personally recommend is MOMO.
I personally recommend MOMO because it’s a unique Taiwanese site.
Other sites have sites from other countries, so I don’t really trust them.
In fact, I used to buy my protein from MOMO a lot, so I have some shopping experience.
I used to use it a lot because it was so convenient, getting my stuff delivered within a day of placing my order!
It was also easy to contact them for redelivery, so I think it’s an easy site for foreigners to use.
- Shopee is the most popular site in Taiwan.
- Personally, I recommend MOMO.
- It’s good to use different ones depending on your shopping needs.
