I have an online shop, selling handmade items (jewelry, knitted scarves, hats, decorations, magnets etc) and I've made quite a few purchases from other sellers of handmade items. Actually I did a lot of Christmas shopping online. It saved me from travelling to the store, saved on gas and essentially saved me time, time to do the things I wanted to do, like spend more time with our boys, take them to the beach to look for beach glass, etc. I think I bought from 6 or 7 different online shops and stores this holiday season, including Ebay, Etsy, Amazon. I've never had a problem, just receive the package, check to see if the order is okay and wrap it up. With gas at $3.00 a gallon (or close to it) why would anyone want to drive to the store and find out the shelf is empty. Check online and if the item is in stock, you buy it. No wasted gas, wear and tear on the vehicle (not to mention run-away carts slamming into your car).

I have shopped online before. Its usually because its something that I can't get here. I also shop online a lot because quite a few stores offer airmiles online but not in stores. Lately I do not shop online though. Most of the stuff that I buy online I really don't need. Right now I am flat broke. I have a $25 gift card for gas.. .and thats it to last me the next 3 weeks.

I like to browse online before I buy major items. I like to purchase computer accessories.

I like to shop for some things online. It makes it a lot easier not having to deal with crowds and having to hunt down something using gas to search for. I prefer to drive as little as possible these days and online shopping helps with that.

I don't make it a steady diet of buying online, however I have a few times. Bought a few craft patterns and items for the house. Have never had a problem either with the actual purchasing or delivery of goods. I do prefer to go to an actual store or mall and see first hand what I am buying. Also have bought a couple of craft patterns from a magazine.

I did most of my Christmas shopping on line this year. overall I liked it as it was less of a hassle. What I did not like was paying shipping charges. Another thing I did not like was that one company actually sent me the wrong item, so I had to return it. And another company sent me two of an item I only wanted one of.

Hi,tony! I just buy books online,coz sometimes the prices of books are really cheaper than the ones in the bookstore.I have never buy clothes or shoes.I prefer to buy them in shoppingmalls or departments coz I can wear them to see wether they are fit for me.

I enjoy shopping online with stores I'm familiar with such as, Ace Karaoke or BMG Music to name a few. Otherwise I don't like to do too much of this due to having to give out credit card and bank card numbers. Also, if I need to return something, I don't want to go through the hassle of shipping it back etc.

The only thing I got online was an eBook. I am hesitant about shopping online especially when shopping for clothes because before I buy a piece of clothing, I make sure that it fits me and that there's no damage at all. I prefer going out of my way to the mall to buy something I want. Although it's more time consuming then buying online, I have a lesser risk og getting something damaged or not what I expect it to be.

Yes, I enjoy the ease of transactions when shopping online. I mostly shop for gifts, educational items, movies, and music online. Most everything else I shop for in my community. Thank you for posting!

I have never shopped online, I have not tried it and aside from that I am having second thoughts about it.
