Spidersworld does not ship outside the EU. Importing is a very expensive process involving laws and permits in both countries involved and is typically only done by dealers with the resources to import. You have to find a dealer in the Phillippines.

You're going to need an import license and get it approved so it can allow you to import and export legally without getting arrested or fined. You would then will have to spends thousands of dollars (or PHP for your currency) which you probably are going to have to pay more than what you bargained for.

Just an example is that someone I know who imported paid $5500 USD for some tarantulas from the EU. Which if you convert it to your currency it's probably a lot of money involved to get it from one country to another legally.

Are they doing it legally or brown boxing?

They import to Canada. One of our largest dealers uses them to import. However, they do not offer shipping to Canada for individuals. Maybe there is some misunderstanding happening.
In Canada, you need to have a commercial import license in order to import more than a handful of tarantulas. You also have to ship them via Air Cargo and they MUST go through Canadian customs clearance that requires customs forms to be completed. That might also include an interview and even opening the box. The cost to do that is very high and not worth it unless you're ordering thousands of spiders at a time.
You will need to check with your government if any species are not permitted to be imported, or if a special permit is required for importing.
You will also require CITES paperwork to be done for any CITES listed animals - notably Brachypelma and Poecilotheria. Getting that paperwork doesn't cost a lot of money, but can take a lot of time and effort on the part of the seller.
