Are you in charge of the household budget? Do you want to know the prices of basic goods before you do your grocery? Good news! There is now the DTI e-Presyo App that gives you info on prices of basic necessities and prime commodities.
The ePresyo App is the Online Price Monitoring System (OPMS) provided by the Department of Trade and Industry or DTI.
You can use this app to check on the prices of basic goods and prime commodities. Through the e-Presyo App you will see the Suggested Retail Price (SRP), Prevailing Prices, plus see a list of stores that offers the lowest prices for a particular basic necessity, though this last feature is for limited areas for now.
For mobile access – the e-Presyo App is currently only available for download for iPhone users through the Play Store. Download for Android phones will follow soon.
Some of the basic necessities and prime commodities shown with prices on the e-Presyo app includes Battery, Bottled Water, Bread-Loaf, Candles, Corned Beef, Beef Loaf, Sardines, Meat Loaf, Patis, Soy Sauce, Flour, Hollow Blocks, GI Sheets, Steel Wire, Instant Noodles, Salt, Condense Milk, Laundry Soap, etc.
Example of Price Monitoring through the DTI App
Another use of the app is to compare a store prices for basic goods and prime commodities against the SRP prices published by DTI. When you encounter a store that sells basic goods way high than the suggested retail price or what the DTI calls “opportunistic prices” especially in areas recently hit by a calamity, you can report the store to DTI.

The good thing about the DTI e-Presyo App is that there is no need to register or sign up to use the app. Just access it through your laptop or download the app on your smart phone, and you will right away see the list of prices of basic and prime commodities.
