Ebay and buying items online is like a gamble. Checking online to see reviews from the stores before I buy. Plus sometimes the items that are sold online are not avalible at the place you are at right away.

you can buy in amazon too. Also facebook is becoming one too. i tried buying clothes in faccebook which is worth 600 and a shipping fee according to your location. It is safe to buy but not all are safe. especially in facebook, a lot of scam also happened there. though haven't experience being scammed. Just be careful in buying in facebook, you can buy to those seller with a lot of feedbacks, proof of shipping. they also build a fan page that is all about bogus seller, theire site and name and some pictures of them.

I've bought things from e-Bay and Amazon a lot of times and I've never had any problems. I've even been able to get refunds when the products weren't quite right or sold out.

I can't think of any other reliable sites to buy online than ebay. There's one that I have my eye on but it's not available in India.

I love the convenience of buying online and I do it all the time. It really opens up a whole new experience. You are now able to get anything you want from anywhere in the world. Things that you could never find near your home can be delivered right to your door. Not to mention with the price of gas being as high as it is right now it just makes sense to do what you can from the comfort of your home.

The only online site I have ever bought from is Ebay. Sadly I can not help you much. I wish you luck on your online shopping.

I think that buying online is perfectly safe I have been shopping online for many years. Something that is definitely important is that you carry out good research prior to any online purchase. Make sure that you check out a company. Does the company have good customer reviews? This is what I look for. I like reading customer service reviews and it's this that determines whether I make a purchase from that company or not. Shopping online is very convenient and far cheaper as well I think. I have been buying items from ebay for a long period of time and I'm really pleased with that website. I like the fact that they have a rating system and I only purchase from those that have a one hundred per cent feedback score. I think that amazon is also a good online place to shop. Above all just make sure that all your shopping experiences are enjoyable and good luck. Andrew

I have used ebay plenty of times..You get horror stories from people saying that they wouldnt trust these kind of sites.Everything i have ordered has turned up and it was exactly as what was described..Its a fab way of shopping..

Some products not available in Latvia, so ordering from ebay. Loreal recently replaced one of the cream design, Latvian old designs were removed and replaced with new. I prefer the old design and it is only available on eBay. There product is available cheaper than Latvian (do not worry packing is not open). Still choose countries that are closer, in the order will come faster:)
