What would you say are the best online stores out there. It can be anything from electronics , clothes.... you name it. One of my favorite places to buy online is ebay. Just because you can find almost anything you want out there at one place. Plus its easy to pay for items. I have bought quiet a few items through them. Another favorite place is tigerdirect and newegg. I bought a few parts from there for my computer. Have you ever had problems with online shopping? One site i bought some tools from still has not sent me items i ordered 3-4 months ago. Every time i contact them they say its still on backorder and will be shipped by such and such date... twice they moved the date. Now i cant get ahold of them through email. Thats the first time i had a problem with them. I wont say the name but there a smaller company.

I have to say one of my favorite site would be extreme dealz, it's out in HONG KONG, but everything is free shipping which is great and they really have a lot of great things. I have bought lots of things for my computer and for some friends. they ship pretty quick. about three weeks to four weeks. but like I said its a great site check it out you will love it. I don't go to ebay cause I don't like to wait for them to accept my payment and yeah they have good stuff but just not my thing.

They have alot of cheap products , some good and bad. Usually sift though the comments to find out which ones are worth it and others that are not. I have bought some batteries from them , and a few other things. Pro: Cheap , lots of assortments , free shipping Cons: Long shipping takes 2-4 weeks.

Hi bikespot! I like to shop online because of it's convenience. I also shop on ebay but I only buy from those powersellers for they are trusted. I mostly buy at Amazon Japan, Yahoo auctions and rakuten. So far, I never had problems buying online. Just this one incident that the seller sent me a wrong item, I just contacted the seller and they sent me my item and the even sent me a freebie. Happy mylotting!

I have bought from all members at ebay. Never had any problems. If you ever do have a problem ebay will back you up. Same with paypal if your the buyer. Obviously if it looks like a fake auction dont buy it.

Never heard of it. There are tonnes of shops out there. Ebay is good for protection for the seller and the buyer. So it is very safe to use. I have bought alot off of ebay , never had any bad experiences with the seller directly.

Online shopping portals are extremely popular due to it's convenience. many people buy stuff from online portals for which they may not want to drive down to the store. Online portals save you a lot of time and effort and sometimes even money with so many offers that they have. However, online transactions can be unsafe sometimes. There are times when you may have paid but the site does not register a payment. There are other times when you have paid but the item does not reach you. At such instances, it is important that the site has a good customer service. It can be a an email, chat or a telephone based customer service. How customer service responds to queries and complaints defines whether an online portal is good or bad.

online shopping portals offers 3 things: 1.Convenience 2.Competitive prices 3.Secure environment for payment They 3 features have seen the rise of the online shopping portal and it will be a stiff competitor to our conventional stores.

My favorite online store is similar with Ebay, the difference is it is based in China. I like shopping in Taobao very much because it is very easy and convenient. I can even contact the seller if we are both online. So I can ask he/she many questions about the product I am going to buy. Besides Taobao, I also like to buy from Amazon. I love China

My favorite online stores and sites are just Ebay and Amazon they have you completely covered if anything bad happens to the stuff you purchased. I like ebay because you can find great deals on used products.

The online store that I use the most is Amazon. I really like them a lot because of the fact that I can find almost everything that I need on there. I also really like the fact that the majority of the things that I shop on Amazon for offer free shipping but still charge tax, so it is just like going out of the house and going shopping because I don't incur any extra expenses. Some of the other online marketers that I've used and been very happy with are EBay, Tiger Direct, and New Egg. Oh, I also have one experience with Beach Camera and that was a very smooth transaction as well.

I gotta go with ebay... It gives merchants a platform to do business internationally, user friendly, awesome community of helpful shoppers plus you can buy literally anything under the sun. Even used napkins... LOL

Some of my all-time faves. Amazon.com Marketplace great deals Dealextreme.com Cheap/ variety stuff Focalprice.com Cheap/ Variety stuff Ebay.com/ (Buynow option) Discontinued/used stuff geeks.com they have awesome electronics and really mega cheap deals on new media, cards flash drives and discs dvd-rw-cd-rw ect.... Auctions are too iffy and if you put a lot of time in and don't win it's can really suck. :-( There are many others b ut sometimes it's best to stick with what your used to.

when it comes to buying electronics, Ebay takes the cake. You can find whatever you are looking for, plus an amazing price. I also like Amazon though. Amazon is a huge market place, but what I like about amazon is that it has product ratings and you can also sort through search results by bestselling & product review! I love it

Amazon is the best one. It is easy to use. It also has good support from my experiences there. Also the items ship out in a reasonable amount of time, unless something is put on back order. If I do shopping, its normally on Amazon for these reason. Not to mention the great deals I can find. Ninety five percent of my shopping ever has been on Amazon.

I think Amazon is pretty good. They have plenty of products. By plenty I mean a variety of products. We also have the option of buying new or second hand products. I think that is good since video games or books etc can be bought at cheap prices.

Ebay is of course the #1 online store. You can't beat the prices there, as long as you win the auction, lol. Another store I really like is Amazon. I get paid from some of my sites in Amazon gift certificates and they really saved Christmas this year for us. My husband had been wanting one of those big hot oil popcorn machines, the smaller version like you see in the movie theaters. I had priced it at target and it was 100.00, I bought it at Amazon for 83.00. Now that's what I call a deal and with no money out of my pocket! I've never really had any problems ordering from online, knock on wood.

My favourite online store is Bookdepository.com Its an online book store that has pretty competitive prices.Best of all,shipping to most places in the world is FREE Buying from the US store bookdepository.com is cheaper than buying on the UK site bookdepository.co.uk,which I discovered belatedly!So buy from US site if you are interested!

My favourite place to buy online is ebay, because as you said, you can find anything. I've never had any problem as a buyer there but I have had problems as a seller with people trying to scam me, but who weren't able to in the end.

Hi there, even I think Ebay is the best online shopping site, even there are many culprits who cheat us in the name of online shopping, so becareful while doing any online shopping with unnamed sites. Why don't you try in rediff even that is best.

For shopping online I really like Ebay too. I also like Amazon. For clothing stores I Hollister, American Eagle, Forever 21, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Victoria's Secret. They all have really fast and reliable shipping, and the prices are pretty good. Especially Forever 21, it's like designer clothing for a steal.
