I have not had a problem shopping online. I do it all the time. Currently I try to go through BigCrumbs whenever I can because they get me discounts at most online retailers and ebay. I get cash back to my paypal. And I earn money when my referred friends do their shopping too. I just wish I had heard of BigCrumbs BEFORE I bought my CAR on ebay! I would have gotten tons of cash back for a $9500 purchase! Yes, I even purchased my car online! It was delivered to me from halfway across the country and I LOVE it! (I have a picture on my profile page) BigCrumbs is a great site for those of you who are thrifty or for those of you who know a lot of shoppers (you can refer them and earn when they shop.) you don't even need to buy anything to earn Unfortunately it is only available to a few countries. I have a banner on my page if anyone wants to take a look. some people have earned THOUSANDS of dollars at this site in the last couple of years.

Online shopping is quite reliable. For me, I would always go to sites such as Amazon.com, Yesasia.com, Ebay. So far these sites work well for me. I would advise that you do some research on the item you want to buy. 1) Do remember to check if they ship to your country or you might end up wasting time doing form filling only to realize they don't deliver to you. 2) Check the fees you will incurred, such as shipping and handling, or additional charges. 3) Do note that there are discounts available in Amazon such as their special bundle purchase or if you are paying by certain cards. 4)And also, check on the credibility of the seller to minimize the possibility of being scammed.

Hello wildlittlefan this is checkmail and had an exciting experience on shopping online with mine friend.We had shopped for the gadgets that were really cool.Mostly use ebay, bazzee, Alibaba, etc sites to shop online, it required an credit card.Myself i have to wait to get it, but my friends do have it, so can shop through them.Its really convenient to shop online from the certified sites on net, their products prices and quality both are affordable, and also profitable to us.Online shopping is reliable only if we buy as well sell goods at an certified site.Well if knowing some genuine online shopping sites than would suggest to shop for max products.Even we get various offers and bonus for shopping online.It was an great experience so far shopping online.Happy Mylotting.

Well,I have seen a ebay picture in your response.Have you ever try to buy and sell stuffs with them or through them.I think ebay is a good platform for buying and selling online.But since I didn't make anything with ebay so far,it is hard for me to comment on their work.Alibaba is a site that I am learning to do business through them but since I am only a newbie with them,I think I still have to wait and see how things go.Have a nice day and I hope that you can use your skills to help other newbie in myLot.

Well I did order the so called complete series of Daria from an online place, but I knew ahead that it wasn't going to be of great quality, and I was fine with it because I have heard that MTV might not ever put it out on DVD to be bought, because of the copyright on all the music in the shows....or something to the effect, but I didn't expect it to be as bad as it was, some places were even cut out. But another show I ordered that also wasn't made by a big company or anything was VR5 it was a show that lasted maybe a season, but I loved it and the picture wasn't all that bad. But I have had a lot of good service with amazon.com...i like to buy old movies, like black and white ones, and their prices are like 5.99 and then with shipping their like 8.00, but it's still pretty cheap they show up in about a week and their REAL DVD's.

Well, a long time ago I did get scammed...I bought an entire season of the show Third Watch from an online dvd store...I was naive then and I didn't check the 'company' out first...the show's picture quality was bad, and a lot of the episodes didn't even work. And when I emailed the 'company' they never emailed me back so I didn't get my money back. So now when I'm going to buy from an unknown site I always check them out first...I either look them up at BBB Online or I just search for reviews. But I'm trying to save up money right now so I'm buying less online stuff! :)

Yes,we all hate scam but too bad,there are full of scammer online and we should be more alert with this when trying to buy anything online.I think BBB is a good advice since it really representing something with a certain standard.However,I heard about some of the BBB thing can still be scam.I am not sure whether it is true or not,but it is always important to keep our eyes open and keep our ears up on the internet.Bad guys are surely everywhere!

I only shop online when is necessary when like the item I want to buy doesn;t sell at anywhere besides online. I don;t like online shopping because most of the products need shipping cost and 5-7 days of waiting. online shopping is reliable for me anyways, but I know there are some sites will charge more than the original price.

Yes,you've got a point.Waiting is a big problem with online shopping.It really depends on where you live in this world.Sometimes ,it may takes longer than 7 days to get the stuffs that you have ordered.And the mail services are not all the same.Some will be better but some are horrible.Anyway,it is a nice experience and I hope that your experience can help more people when they are considering to make a purchase online.I wouldn't say good or bad but definitely something to be consider with.Have a good day.

Well, it depends on what online stores you choose. I do shop online, but I am very picky when it comes to stores I will buy from. I used to live in a very small town, so I often found difficulties to look for things I need. Shopping online is the only solution and so far, I'm satisfied.

My latest online shopping is a SD Card for my MP5, which is an 8G card. It does not cost me much, but a little more than fifteen dollars. It is fast and convenient. It is supposed to reach me today. I am looking forward to receiving it at around noon today. I have bought some other things online and they are good in quality and cheap. I hope the card I have bought will be proved to be good like the other things I have bought. I have online shopping on these two sites--taobao and vancle. I like them for their fast and good service. Enjoy your online shopping, friend.
