Online shopping versus Real Shopping

It's undeniable that shopping is one of the greatest hobbies especially for girls. Along with the advancement of internet, online shopping came about. I have heard of problems with this kind of service like delayed packages, wrong item delivery, poor product quality, debited amount in the credit cards without the actual goods. I have never tried online shopping as I prefer to see the goods myself and to hop from one store to another. Which do you think is better, store shopping or online shopping?

Nothing beats actual shopping.It can relieve you of your stress and you can also eat and relax at the mall.But it when it comes to wide range of products then thats the use of online shopping.You can find online whats already out of stock in the mall.

can find online whats already out of stock in the mall. Better yet you can find tons of stuff online that you cant find in live stores..for example I need a 36" inseam for my pants/jeans and I can ONLY find them at online stores..

Hi nympha, I have done a lot of shopping online and have not had a bad experience once. I did have to return one item because it did not fit, but it really was not a big problem. I like shopping online because it saves time, money and gas. I shop through this program and get better deals online and even earn cash back rebates that are deposited directly into my paypal account monthly. There are 120+ stores to shop at including ebay. I even get good deals on hotel rooms, car rentals, sometimes get free shipping and ship to store for pick up. I love to shop, save and earn.

for me,it depends.sometimes,you can find items/things in the internet/shopping site that you cant't find in some shopping malls.like the doll that i bought in ebay.but its better to go shopping in the shopping malls so you will see personally the items that you are going to buy.and you can also check it if it's in good condition.i only do online shopping if the item is hard to find in the stores like collectible items.im collecting chucky doll and i can't just find it anywhere.that's why i have no other choice but to order the doll in ebay.

i go for both. i love shopping so i love going to the mall and see what are on sale. can see what are the latest and can really fit the clothes and shoes that i want to avail or purchase. i also shop online but those are the hard to find items only. like i am trying to but silences cologne, around and i wentto work at japan but still was not lucky to find that kind of cologne there. i saw it on Ebay. . so there are things that i love to buy on the real shopping and online as well.
