I have bought things from eBay and another similar site from Australia. I never put my credit card details online so I only use reputable sites and generally use PayPal because I find that to be the safest way to transact online. I don't like bidding for things because I find that if you have your heart set on the object and bids come in just before the auction closes you will tend to overspend as not to miss out.

I don't trust online purchasing unless it's from a very reliable source. It's really hard to transact business online especially if it involves payment through credit card. I'd only go for online purchases if it's COD. Otherwise, I'd usually think it's a scam and I'd steer clear from it.

Hi there. Yes, I have purchased quite a lot of things online, especially those which are not readily available in local department stores. I'm a fan of a Japanese idol group and the only way that I can get their merchandise (CDs, posters, memorabilia, etc.) is through online stores like CDJapan, Yes!Asia and Play-Asia. I've also tried purchasing items from international sellers in e-bay and as long as they have positive feedback, I don't have really any qualms buying from them. Also, having my PayPal account makes it quite easy and secure to pay for things online since you only have to register your credit card with one site (PayPal) and then you can use it to pay various online sellers without having to disclose your credit information to each site. I think that e-commerce has evolved to the point that buying and selling on the internet has become quite common and easy for anyone. Oh, and I've been satisfied with my purchases so far.

Yes, I have purchased many things online. Most of which I have used and been satisfied with. There are several that I do want to use and have not been that happy with. Mostly I use gift certificates on Amazon and they are what I need to have and to use. They are things that I really like.

Hi well personally I but a lot of things online and I think that it is really worth it. The most site that I buy frequeltly is from Ebay, I bought to shoes , laptop and a car stereo. If you check the seller feedback to see what other customers think about the seller. I recieved everything at home and on the whole I was really satisfied with the products. I recommend you to try and buy something not very expensive to experiment in shopping online. I assure you that you will never stop again shopping from the internet.
