I don't. I wish I do but I'm the kind of person who see to believe. But I believe there are certain things that we can buy faithfully online like books. If it's clothes, I'm afraid that it doesn't fit my actual size. But above all, I worry whether it's safe to shop online.

Hi SHAMRACK! I remember once I made a purchase online for games. That's it. I never experience buying anything with its visual shape. Thanks for sharing.

Hello, you have every right to be concerned about shopping online as nothing can beat face to face shopping. I do shop online and I prefer it that way. I use paypal so I know that's secure. And I shop on all sorts of sites, I agree with you however some people are more 'visual' people and some people just like to see it for themselves before they buy which it fair enough. Guess it's all just personal preference.:)

Hi med889. Thanks for sharing. I've an account ebay but I never really use it anyway. I'll try to check on the products they offer. But most of all, I have to be careful with the shipping cost because I'm not in US. I'm afraid the shipping cost would be much higher than the products that I bought.

I do shop online. I will only shop at stores that i shop at on a regular basis and know my size so that i wont have to return things or even have to worry about them not fitting correctly. I do this with Oldnavy and Gap as i like those two stores and i know my size. I shop at other stores such as forever21 and charlotte russe as i know my size in those stores and i can type in a brand that i like from certain stores and find in other stores and know they will fit as i already have clothes by that brand. Its easier to do it this way then have to worry about bringing clothes back or returning them.

Yeah, it's with very good what you're doing. You don't have to worry because you already know your size of certain brands. I don't wear branded clothes much. I have a very tight budget for shopping so branded clothes are quite out of reach unless discount items in the malls. Anyway, I still 'visual' shopping are better for me.

I do shop online but only on Ebay and one of the perfume site on the net. I never tried to shop from other sites. One more thing,I only buy fragrances and health and body products. You can trust Ebay if you would like to try shopping online. It is the most trusted site....

I also don't shop online because I think it's not really safe to use your credit cards or debit cards in purchasing the products. And I reckon it's best to go to the mall to shop, in that way you can be sure that the product that you're about to purchase is worth your money because sometimes there are some things that look good in pictures, but as soon as you have them, you'll realize that their actual images are not as good as the pictures.

i do like to shop online sometimes. and i love browsing thru the catalogue, it can get kinda addictive to. i usually buy things online when the item that i want is not available in the stores here, or if it is- it's cheaper to get it online

i have never shopped online so far for two reasons. one is the fact that i am not comfortable sharing my credit card details online as there are so many online frauds committed these days. secondly, i m not sure if the product i purchase would be according to my expectations when it is shipped. they show lots of fancy stuuf on the web sites,but the product sometimes is not as good.
