Have you ever purchased second hand books through ebay or other online book stores? I own an online book store myself, so I was wondering how comfortable people feel with purchasing books from online sources. I currently have no credit card payment process, but do have direct deposit and paypal as payment options. How comfortable are you using your credit card online to purchase items?

I've ordered books from Amazon and Ebay. I think with a new store I'd feel wary about giving out credit card information until I had some good reports or something to be sure of the reputation.

Yes, I have used Amazon and e-bay. I like to order them on line because you can get them used but in good condition for a reasonable price. I am really comfortable using my credit card, if I am not too sure, I use my husband's American Express.

If it's a local site, credit card would feel more comfortable. If it's an overseas site to me, I prefer to use paypal. But I usually buy books from the local vendors, because shipping is cheaper. No point buying a book, and the shipping costs more than the books.
