Default Online shopping in Portugal

OK, I know there is no eBay, neither Amazon in Portugal.
But... how does the population of 10 millions shop online? Olx.pt is a replacement for Gumtree, not eBay. Any online auctions at all?
Also how do people order new stuff online? Is there a place which allows to search for everything from nail polish to cement mixer sorting by price and then order a delivery?

Amazon Spain and Germany both deliver to Portugal no hassle.

and https://www.olx.pt/
also there are many Portuguese companies and International ones with Portuguese online-setups so Google searches bring up lots of possibilities if you mention Portugal ...
and bear in mind that most pages might be in Portuguese (though some with an English option at the top of the page) but you can always do a "translate" on your webpage.

I do a lot of shopping online in Portugal and often get the best deals by using Kuantokusta or simply searching using Google. I often beat Amazon Spain and Amazon Germany on price and service. ​​​ I find it best to search in Portuguese rather than English. Sometimes the delivery times are amazing, eg I ordered a gate remote control yesterday and it arrived by courier before lunch today.

If you use facebook,sign up to their Marketplace section.
Never had any problems with buying online here. You just have to take a bit of time searching. Bought some fencing last year from a Co.in the Algarve.Arrived next day and we live near Santarem.Price was good too.

I have found online shopping tiresome in certain shops like Worten, Radio Popular and the likes. They advertise online in their shop articles for sale only when you go down there, there is a two week wait because you have to order (not in stock). The only good thing is they will notify you when ready for collection and obviously you know where it will be.

Amazon.es and vidaXL and all the shops with online presence i.e. Leroy Merlin, Worten, etc provide me with all I need. I do miss eBay though.
