Hi all mylotters!! Anyone here is online shopper? A lot of my friends nowadays just buy what they want at home. They are just clicking the things they want by using their computer. Most of them are buying clothes online. But for me, i still prefer to go shopping in a shopping mall. I enjoy the feeling and i feel more safe to buy a thing that i can feel myself. How about you?

Hello! I am both online and mall shopper. I shop through online if I get bored and see stuffs that I don't see in the mall. As long as I know the exact size that does fit to me and not, I have nothing to worry. Though, shopping online is more expensive because of freight and handling. It is fun to do shopping online than in the mall. Because in the mall, it takes long and very crowded but through online, you can have all the time you want and no hassle.

Like at Ebay? Yupz I shop clothes at ebay too. It depends how the seller describe the item. You should describe the item how it really looks. There are people at ebay buy pre-owned clothes. AS long as it does not have stains or holes in it and can still be wear by the buyer.

I can honestly say that me and my fiance are both online shoppers and we have bought several things from online stores such as WalMart.com,and BarnesandNoble.com and a few other sites that we can trust,we do like going to a store to do the shopping but since prices are going up all over the place because of the state of the economy and the gas prices are always fluctuating,it just seems cheaper to stay at home and order stuff that way you can save the gas that it would take to drive to a store such as Wal Mart,plus if you have a PayPal account sites like WalMart.com will allow you to pay directly from your PayPal without having to use a debit or credit card which is a little more secure,and a whole lot easier than having to withdraw money from PayPal into a back account,which would mean having to wait like four days,besides shopping online can be a lot of fun,because you can find almost anything you want online without having to leave the comfort of your computer which is awesome if you ask me,especially if you are doing Christmas shopping because you do not have to worry about crowds,or long lines.

I prefer shopping at malls. I got the chance to hang with my friends, window shopping and try clothes on. In online shopping you can't try the clothes on and sometimes the item you buy doesn't look exactly in the net and in person. My money is safe and worth it if I buy or shop in the malls and might find sales and bargains for low price.

Hi lchiat, I am an online shopper, and I am pretty used to the online shopping. I love amazon, ebay, 6pm, and other online store. It is very convenient to buy stuff online. Of course the trade off is sometimes you cannot get the thing of perfect size, but I still enjoy it! Happy mylotting! Vivian

I like to comparison shop from home, and yes, most of the time I will buy online. With the price of gas, carbon footprints and not wanting to put the mileage on my cars, why not have it delivered? Just wish I could get everything to come at one time, would save on all the issues above.

there are only certain things that i'll buy online. the things i'll buy online are books, gift certificates, and ive also bought electronics and video games online. i don't buy clothes online because if they may not fit, and the return policies can be kinda iffy. i prefer to shop in malls for clothing and shoes because i can at least see what they look like on me

I am sometimes. I find lots of good sales online. Plus with sites like Ebates and Mypoints I can earn money back everytime I shop. I also wear a really small size and sometimes have trouble finding it in stores. I do love going to the mall though, even if it's just to walk and look around.

I actually don't really do too much online shopping because I am very limited on what I can buy. i have done e-bay and amazon as I can get gift certificates for amazon through surveys and stuff and e-bay because I can use paypal. But most places only do credit cards which I don't have. I would shop online if I could though because I live in a very remote area and would love to get the fashions and items that I can't get when I do get to town.

I buy online  - I buy online what I could not easily get by going out.
I buy online what I could not easily get by going out. As a shut in, getting out for anything other than a grocery shop is not easy. There are products the local stores do not carry. Those are the things that I can get online. There is the problem of when the local store runs out of something, I can't just pick it up the next day or so. Getting out is difficult.

Hi. Thanks a lot for your response. I see. Ya sometime we cant find something that we want at our place. The only way to get it is online find it at some sites. But i dont feel it is safe to do so. I still dont really have enough confident to buy things online. At least it is very cheap and i really like it. If not i wont shop online. Happy myloting!!! Have a nice day!!!

Trusted - There are trusted stores online where you can shop in your underpants.
I have Identity Protection through my bank and shop with my debit card which behaves like a credit card for Internet exchange. They will investigate any purchases that look 'hinky'. * Buying on the Net through an online store such as Amazon.com is not any more dangerous to your identity and money then going to a physical store. Physical stores use computers to manage customer information. * You can comparison shop in your underpants. * http://www.shopping.com/

I do enjoy shopping online. I don't like shopping for clothes as much (except things I am not worried about how they look like jeans, underwear, tees, etc) online because I like to try them on and make sure I like how they look on me. I buy books and gifts online a lot. Since I am not a shopper, it is a delight to be able to go online and find what I want and buy/order it.

yes i'm slowly becoming an online shopper. i used to not like shopping online because i don't get to see the product. however recently i bought quite a few things online and i like what i receives. the description is accurate so i won't buy the wrong thing. there are also things that i don't need to see before buying. furthermore, the amount of money i save by shopping online is quite a lot. so i think i will be doing more of my shopping online. cheers

Hi. Thanks a lot for your response. I agree with you that shop online can save quite a lot. But sometimes it dont. The sky high shipping fees will make the prices become more expensive than some stores. For me i need to see a products before i buy it so i still prefer to buy it locally. Happy myloting!!!

Yes, I am an online shopper. There are some things I can't find in my are and I order them online. But as for clothes. Since I am an odd size, and a little over weight. I like to try all my clothes on to see if they fit. many times clothes will say one size...but they are really different. I have noticed not all stores size large are actually size large. That has been a big pet peeve of mine.

Yes, I do shop online and I love it. I have purchased so many items online and I am never disappointed. I like shopping online as I hate the crowds at the store. I hope to really buy most of the new decor items online for my house.

But sometime if you shopping in crowd you will find that it is fun too. Look for something that you wanted to buy and choosing it there. It is totaly different feeling compare to buy online. You can have a try. Happy myloting!!!

I love going to the mall too, but sometimes when I'm pressed for time, I do shop online. As a matter of fact, I took my Christmas list and started online shopping. I ordered a lot of items through Kohls and was pleased that after a certain amount there was free shipping. I spent a little over 90.00 and the free shipping is for 75.00 or more so I qualified. I got a lot of presents taken care of, so now I just wait for delivery and start wrapping. I think a lot of people will do that this year, since companies will be offering a lot of incentives for online shoppers.

I've buying loads of things online lately. The lack of time is the main reason Im doing it. Buying things I need online is practical, but surely it didnt have "the feeling" of buying in the usual way.

Hi. Thanks a lot for your response. You seem quite new here. Welcome to Mylot. I see. You are a online shopper. I dont do online shopping because i dont feel it is safe enough to buy something that i cant feel on my own and try it on the spot. So i still prefer to buy thing in usual way. Happy myloting!!! Have a nice day!!!

It depends on what I'm shopping for. Jeans and shoes I prefer to buy in person. Other things, like sweaters, dresses and jackets, where fit is more relaxed, I like to buy online. There are a handful of shopping sites that I use regularly, and have had good experiences. I also like that I usually save sales tax by shopping online, and many sites have bargain or free shipping. I can't stand shopping malls. The noise, people and poor-quality air drive me nuts. When I do shop, I prefer stand-alone stores, so that it's easier to step outside for fresh air.

Hi. Thanks a lot for your response. I see. I get what you mean. The most important we shopping online is find some cheaper shipping fees and if possible get the free shipping. The shipping is the factor which always make our things become more expensive. But for me i still prefer to go shopping in a mall with friends. Happy myloting!!!

Like you, I like to buy clothes locally. I like to make sure that all clothes fit and are comfortable to wear. I also buy food locally, but anything else I will usually buy online. I am doing most of my Christmas shopping online this year. I like that I can easily compare prices to find the best deals. I am shopping on a budget this year, so it is nice to be able to compare prices in just a few seconds without having to waste time or gas.
