What I like most about online shopping is the fact that it is much, much faster to shop online than shopping in department stores as well as other offline stores. And you?

Privacy!... Shopping online gives me the convenience of being able to shop from home, without all the hassles going through traffic jam, looking for parking space and spending extra money for things which I initially don't intend to buy (you know, when you see something nice or cute, and you decided to buy it, even though you don't really need it). One more thing that I like about shopping online is "Privacy"! Sometimes there are things that quite embarrassing to purchase from usual department store or shopping malls or a convenient store. So shopping online kind of let you buy things in private.

I like that the item comes right to my door. I do not uusally order clothes online though as all clothes fit differenty and if you have to send them back you are out the shipping costs.

Shopping online rocks! I can do it at any time of the night or day. I don't have to worry aobut what I wear, or about makeup. I don't use gas or hunt for hours to find a parking space. There aren't any crowds to fight,and no rude salespeople. I don't need to find out wjere the store is and how to get there. I love it!

What I like most is that the world of shopping is at your fingertips! As you know most department stores are regional and not national or international. But with the internet you have access to universal shopping. You can also compartively shop the item without moving a muscle, how cool is that? Then you have the re-sale type places like craigslist,ebay,overstock etc., where you can definitely find some great deals both new and used. Also the department stores will only carry a small portion in the retail location but much more thru mail order. Many of the places will offer no shipping cost or discounted shipping cost. With the cost of gas nowadays it can be cheaper to order it online rather than driving around searching for what you want. Some of the retailers have online deals or sales that are not available in the store. I have actually found something online and went to a local store and they will actually honor the price online.

I like that you only spend what the product costs. If I say want a CD from the shop I will take out £20.00 from my bank account but if it only costs £12.99 I am left with chnage which I will spend rather than saving it. Sometimes I'll save but not very often. If I buy online though only what I want to spend comes out.
