Yes , I like to buy from companies that take paypal . I think buying online is safe using paypal . I live in a different country then my family so I buy gifts for them online . It's much eaiser and cost less then sending gifts to them on my own .

Yes, I've done it. In Ebay and other sites. and Online shopping has the advantages of the easy shopping (choosing) experience, and easy means of payment. Although with the debit card that I use, I have less options since some stores don't accept them. I wish there were more Paypal-accepting stores too. And that international shipping won't be too expensive!

Our family buys many things online, we use paypal as much as possible when we place the order. One of my daughters who is a full time student, and works purchased all of her christmas presents last year on ebay. Someone in the fmaily buys online at least a couple of times a month. we have only had minor problems and that is usually with companies like JC Penneys being out of stock and having to wait. Just watch the adds closely as there are scam artist out there, but if you shop ebay and read carefully, you will find that things are usually exactly what they say they are.

Hi there Xanne Bull. I have bought from the internet too. I have bought from my country online (computer parts) and i have bought from amazon sites (uk and us), my products being delivered from the USA, UK and sometimes when the UK didn't have the merchandise from Germany as well. I did not experience any problems yet (and i hope i won't anytime soon).

I have before and if you are buying from sites like EBay make sure you check that it is from someone who has been there for awhile and has had a lot of positive reviews. I know this sounds like common but you can be suprised.

I bought something online one time. That was several years ago when I had my old computer. I bought a music stand from ebay. It seemed like it took forever to get here. I emailed the guy I ordered it from because I was getting concerned about it. I never did think to check my front door to see if it might be there. I decided to check it one day and there it was sure enough! I emailed the guy back and told him I found it. I'm sure it was a relief to him, lol. I hardly ever use my front door and that's why I didn't think to check there. I park my car in my carport and it's just more convenient to come in through the back door. Kathy.
