I had so much fun managing my online store and i really earn quite good income from the sales i made. I believe having online store rather than physical store is more beneficial since for one thing you wont have to pay the rent and hire staff, so you can offer your products for a much lower cost. You can also promote an online store better using the internet. Of course more people will still like to buy when they personally see the product rather that pictures but i believe that it's still a matter of convincing buyers and being true to what you offer to make them trust buy your products. What do you think? Are you in favor of this set-up or you still want a physical store?

Hi,in my place now more and more people choose to buy things from online.The main reason is the prices.As you said,because of online stores don't need hire staff,so the cost is lower than the price in real store. I think as time goes on,your online store will got more customers.Anyway,people all around this world are seeking ways to live economically.

yes, one benefit of an online store is the cheaper price since they don't pay for the rent and staff.

I've already tried this kind of business. I must say that during the early days you could earn alot from it but now a days you got a lot of competitors and its up to you on how to market your products in order to catch the attention for your prospects buyer.

I enjoy buying different kinds of products via the net. I am already a VIP to an online store:) The price is usually cheaper online than buying from the real stores. And there are more options. If you have questions, you can also ask the sellers and that's quite convenient. And you can also read the feedback from other buyers. And it is helpful for you to make a decision for your purchase. The delivery fee is usually not expensive and I like it. I love China

I thought you were talking about buying online, then when I read through it I see you are talking about setting up and managing your online store instead of just buying online. With us people who live in a cold country, buying online is better since we do not have to go out in minus 20 to 40 below weather, especially if we do not have a car and when it is too far to walk and too near to take a bus. But I can see there a benefits on your end. I do hope you have a good return policy and that the photos you show and the description of your products are exact as well as your shipping and handling charges are not like the same price as the items themselves.

These days, people do not have as much time to go out to a physical store. A physical store is still useful, but you kind of have to have an online store to supplement. There are people who will never or rarely shop at a physical store. Then there are other people who do not like shopping online with a variety of reasons. I much enjoy shopping online, because there is nothing more frustrating then driving all of the way to a store and finding out that it is not there. At least to me.

I enjoy the convenience of shopping in an online store. there are no crowds to fight off or traffic to battle. If there is inclement weather, I can still easily shop online. I don't have to leave my house to have a pleasant shopping experience.

I do like going to the stores and seeing what they have, but when you are sick as much as I am you order online a lot such as I do. So I guess I'd have to say I do shop online and like it because I am able to do this when I can not go out and about.

Thanks for he issue. I am in support of online shop. But not for every products. The products which has less chance to repair are fit for online purchasing. If I purchase a TV and it requires support, online purchasing will not be a good idea.

Well, I love shopping online and kind of addicted to it. I also an online seller on ebay and so far I love it. With today's technology, it enable us to start business, no matter how small the starting capital is. Brick and mortar store is too expensive not to mention all the paperwork you have to do before opening your store.

I am very fond of online shopping,for many reasons,first I am very lazy,online shooping needn't go everywhere around,at home you can quickly find the thing that oneself like,secondly online shopping overall the price is low,because little of the rent etc,the extra cost of commodity prices generally itself will be lower,anyhow I like online shopping!

I like shopping online for books, bags and perfume but I don't like shopping online for clothes because I would like to try on clothes and see how it fits me first before I actually buy it. Anyway, I agree that it is very convenient to shop online but we should be extra careful because I have friends who have scammed out of their money while shopping online. In multiply, there were a lot of bogus sellers during the time when I use to own my own online shop and it is a good thing that Multiply revamped the site to lessen the scammers.

Hi djmarion, I do shop online but mostly electronic products etc, but when coming to clothes and accessories I prefer going out and buy. I do online shopping for clothes for my wife sometimes when I see something eye catchy and with stunning looks. If something is coming cheap with great discounts I do online shopping. As you were asking do you enjoy, as such I do not really enjoy shopping much to be honest. I enjoy making money online rather than spending it. Anyways Wish you all the luck with your online stores and hope you make tons of money with it. Good Luck and Happy Living Calpro

For information products, I love buying them from online stores, for the reason of convenience and fast delivery. Just like books, I buy books from online stores. I also buy ebooks, the downloadable version of books, from online stores. Just recently, I bought 4 e-books from an online store, e-books where I learned the how to's of search engine optimization, backlinking for website owners, and about online marketing.

What I only experienced is only to buy an e-ticket from an online booking of an airlines but to buy things I have not yet experienced that but what I have noticed is that online shopping is more cheaper that offline but there is a big risk.

Shopping online is quite convenient for me. You just need to choose the online store with a very good reputation and choose to pay money after receiving the goods. Than you can avoid not to be cheated online!

I prefer shopping on line, since everything I want is at my fingertips. There is more of a selection, and I don't have to walk all over the place. I can also shop in my underwear, if I want. LOL
