Online Shopping

I like shopping online. I recently got into nail stuff.. nail art, acrylic, uv gels, etc. And I found online shopping really convenient as all the stuff I need are available online. I dunno, maybe I just enjoy staying home instead of going out. You get your items right at your doorstep so it's really convenient. However, there are items that can be better bought offline than online, Like clothes for example. It can be too tight, or too lose, and you have to ship the items back to replace them, that's a real hassle for me. What about you guys? Do you like shopping online?

I go for online shopping.. but when it comes to clothes, i cant be too all confident as the fitting may not be right. same goes with shoes. Just this afternoon, i have surfed on nine west and they 60% off on shoes and bags! Wow! Same goes for Bath & Body Works buy 3 get 2 free! Unfortunately so, i couldnt buy them because it is for US citizens only... aw...

Same here sistah! I love shoes! and I see a lot of wonderful shoes online with great deal. But I'm afraid that it might not fit me. Same with clothes. So I don't shop online for shoes and clothing. Try surfing the local websites of the stores. You might find something interesting.

hi sophia, Me and my sister is really fond of shopping online at least we don't need to go to the mall and walk roam around to look for what we like. I am registered in many online shopping site and everyday me and my sister is checking out what can we buy there. Sometimes it is hassle free all you need is to wait. happy mylotting

That's right. But of course, just like everything else, there are pros and cons. The greatest thing I like about online shopping is being able to compare prices and qualities before purchasing. Now about that waiting. That's the part I hate. I hate waiting for the items I bought. I admit, I'm a little impatient.

I rarely buy online but when I do, it is mostly toys, discount coupons or something i can use for my house. I don't usually shop for clothes online because they might not fit me.

Seems that everybody has the same reason why they don't like shopping for clothing items. I love shopping online. But all I buy are nail supplies and toys for my daughter.

Hi friend, online shopping is really great and we have more fun and enjoyment with it, i did online shopping several times and get the things properly, but we must be careful while doing online shopping, lot of scams are available here. We must do a lot of research before doing our shopping

Yup. That's right. I do lots of research before I pay for an item. Especially if it's my first time buying from a merchant. There are a lot of scammers online so we have to be very careful in transacting.

Exactly. More and more people are into online shopping right now. They can do it anywhere. You can even do it while your in the bathroom with your mobile phone or tablet. It's very convenient and hassle free. And more and more people are starting their own online store since they can reach more customers from it. They can even sell internationally.

I buy DVDs and art supplies online. I am into quilting and am looking for quilting kits so I can make a few quilts for my niece and nephews for Christmas. I am looking for a baseball quilt, football quilt, basketball and Hello Kitty. I have been looking on amazon since I have a couple of gift cards I want to spend. I would never buy clothes online because I would be afraid that it would not fit.

Since you're into quilting and art, why don't you start your own online business and make money out of it? It's a cool idea isn't it? I'm afraid of buying clothing and footwear online too. I'm scared they wouldn't fit me and I have to go through the hassle of sending it back.

Recently I had done my shopping online more often, like you said, I didn't buy clothing online though, but I rather purchase those electronic stuff through online. They are indeed convenient, and I can always browse around on my fingertips, and I can compare the price.

That's what I like most about shopping online. You have the opportunity to compare prices, plus, you can also search for item reviews to ensure that you get what you want and need.

hi sophiaraine! i was interested in online shopping and i actually started two discussions here in mylot. here are the links, http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2657147.aspx and http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2672673.aspx. got into online shopping because i heard of the discounts it offers. so far, i've bought two deals. i got a discount voucher for kinder zoo entrance tickets and a snore stopper. was happy about the first deal, not so much on the second. i got a third deal but it got cancelled because there were not enough buyers for it. i got the website to credit back what was charged to my credit card but it was a very messy and tedious process so it was not a good experience at all. anyway, i view the deals twice or three times a week just to check if there are any that interest me. one thing to remember is not to be influenced by these deals. these items or services being offered at 'discounted prices' doesn't me that you'll be buying the offers even if you do not need these. hope that makes sense. cheers and happy mylotting!!!

Hi sophiaraine: I really like to make shopping online. Actually I have recently but an MP4 player it's a Zune player by Microsoft and I feel satisfied with it. I take some precautions. I only buy at ebay and I take care of the buyer reputation and my experience buying online has been really satisfying. ALVARO
