Some people like shopping online because it's convenient. Some people don't because they want to have a look and feel the things that they're going to buy before make the purchase. As for me, I have done online shopping for many times and no trouble so far. I bought from ebay a creative Jukebox mp3 player, plant seeds, bulbs and the fertilizers (I used to love gardening!), books, CDs and lots more. What's your opinion about shopping online?

I do enjoy shopping online. I can often find things cheaper than in the stores. I've bought a lot of things online but I mostly buy books, cd's and dvd's. My favorite places to buy from are amazon.com and ebay.com. I got a nice iPod Nano on Ebay a few months ago.

yes, the thing about ebay is we have a lot of choices and the best part is the prices can be very cheap compared to retail price!

I have bought the odd thing or two, but I like to go shopping and touch the object I'm interested in and turn it around, shake it and if it is material pick it up and rub it against my skin! I guess women are like that:D But I think I will buy fertilizer and seeds, mundane odds and ends.

i love online shopping.this is because it is very convienent and do not waste a lot of time.i am very lazy to go out do shopping.because the wheather is so hot nowadays and usually it is so hard to find a parking place.then you need to queu up to pay for the things you bought.so it is just time consuming.so i would rather sit at home and browse the things i wanna buy on my own comfort.i noticed we can get cheaper things through online than buying from the stores.usually the price for electronic things are zo expensive on retail stores.so in order to save my cost i would prefer buying it through online.i have been doing online shopping for 2 years.besides i do selling online too.

I think it's a neat way to shop for our needs whether it be shopping at ebay,amazon or other popular sites.I buy a lot of e-books online and other than that I buy books from amazon.I also do some shopping from a few other sites that put up great gadgets and accessories.My experience of shopping online thus far has been pleasent one.

I enjoy shopping online for certain things. The only thing I have a hard time shopping online for is clothes. I like to be able to try on my clothes before I buy them to make sure they fit and look right. I will buy almost anything else online. I go through an online mall that gives you cash back on your purchases through over 1,000 stores so it really saves me a ton of money. If you are interested in checking it out let me know and I'll send you a link.

I bought my earrings holder and other accessories online through my Multiply account. And I pay upon delivery or if we do meet ups that's when I give my payment. It's quite convenient and easy, just make sure that they are authorized sellers and read about customers' feedback also just to be sure. :)

i never bought from Multiply. but i agree on the authorized seller that you mentioned. i always checked on the seller when buying. i've heard of a lot of scams so we better be careful.

Yes I have. Why not? It is very convenient to get it, and the item will be delivered to me. I just need to be sure I am there to receive it. With online shopping, I can also buy items offered beyond my own country.

yes, you have to be there to accept the things you buy. i always put a note "delivery from 9 to 5 work days only" hahahha, because i'll not be at home during those period and usually the delivery people deliver our stuffs at those time.

I love online shopping. Although a lot of stores do not ship to Canada, or they only ship certain things so far. I love ebay I have bought all kinds of things from there. It's really up my alley since I love yard sales/garage sales and ebay is just like a national yard sale. Recently I bought a Busy Ball Popper toy for my daughter, retails for $40 canadian and I got it for $25 with shipping included! I also bought parts for my car at the same time. I need two tire rod ends and at all of the stores in town that I checked they would cost me $178 plus $120 labor, so I went on ebay and found an ebay store with warranty and new parts and I got four tire rod ends for $80! SO I am saving close to $100 and I have two extra parts incase I need them later on!! I still have yet to receive them but they were only shipped on the 12th. Thanks ebay for saving me money!!

I have never bought anything online not because of online security, it's because I live in a very convenient city and it has everything around. I build up a habit of touching the real things/ try on the new items before I make the purchase. Therefore, I don't buy online. I am thinking of buying english books online though because I can't find them around here.

some things that don't require us to touch and feel and try before we make the purchase like books, cds are better bought online in my opinion. we can get them a lot cheaper :)

I have never tried online shopping yet. But now that I have a paypal account, I think that I will buy. It seems so convenient, and I would use it for computer equipment or clothes that I cannot get her or have to pay so much more for.

There are certain things that I would buy online but not everything. I still like to go to the store and pick out what I want.

I love buying online. As you've mentioned it is very convenient. But I also like it because I can buy things from stores that aren't in my area or state. There are some clothing stores that you will only find in places like L.A., so it's great that I'm able to get the clothes online. I also like to buy some electronics and other items online. I find that it's actually cheaper to buy some things online depending on what it is.

Not. I normally did not buy an online. Because in the shop close to the house or in mini market also could. Possibly I will buy something if only was available in the online internet then.

I've never had shopping online. but I've paid online with Visa Card. I paid the form for applying university. and also for paying for Skype to phone from computer to home telephone. I guess it's work eventhough it's a little bit confuse with the procedure.. However, I prefer buying by myself in the mall, because I can look at that things, whether the things are good or not..
