I have been shopping on the internet from time to time when I need to buy thing. I would first check the price and performance on the internet first, then decide to buy on internet or at shops. I feel good about internet shopping, beacuse it's convenient and fast, but I heard sometimes you bought the goods, which you might not be satisfied with them, so pity! What about you, my pals?

My opinion about Internet shopping that i don't like to shop on internet because on the internet i think everything is costly comparative to local market and on internet every person can see the thing which he or she want to buy can't touch than how can u believe on that thing.

By using internet shopping some times we will have benefits but some times we have to face losses also because some times damages will occur for that products ...of course that only in rare cases only no..But by internet shopping electronic goods may be damaged so we have be care full while buying goods by internet shopping ..it's better to choose non damaged goods through internet i mean less damaged goods...so this is my opinion

Hi, Chris! I have been purchasing air tickets and hotels online before, but I have just started to buy something that included shipment process for a few nights ago. I paid directly via Paypal because I think it's much safer and convenience. I hope the things will arrive in good conditions, but I did hear about people got scammed when buying goods online where they bought something and later discovered that it was not the exact order, and worst I heard that someone received a few pieces of 'bricks' in eBay (??)

Oh,yes,I am on-line shopping,unfortunately,there is no guarantee the quality of goods purchased.3 years ago,I bought a camera online,the quality is very bad.and then I store expensive than the price of a third. of course ,now if I want to buy anything,just as you are,as compared,and then determine the purchase.See you soon!

I think shopping online is great :) its so fast and easy these days. You can check several different shops to get the best price in a matter of minutes. But like you say, there is always that bit of doubt in the back of the mind until what you've bought actually arrives at your doorstep, because you are just judging a product by little thumbnail pictures and stuff :)

Hi chirsh! I do not like to go for shopping through Internet. I feel that I cannot see the products beings sold and I just cannot feel the stuff, as I would have done, had it been a face to face shopping. No doubt that we may get some special stuff/imported stuff, which may otherwise not available in our local market, however, I like to play safe.

I dont like shopping on internet becoz I want to test the material from all the sides and not just by looking at its picture. I love shopping in malls , as i take plenty of time touching and admiring things there.

I was saying something of the sort in my post. You cannot touch or feel what you are getting- a MAJOR downside unless you are getting something such as a movie, cd, game..

Though I love shopping online, there's a reason I go to stores. The first and foremost is that I get the product right away (and I know it's going to work for what I need it for). It totally irritates me when I go to a store, they say, "Oh, we can order that for you online!" It's like no thanks! I can order it online myself! The reason I went to a STORE is because I expected a store to, you know, actually carry products!

Hi chriszh22! I like to shopping online and especially auctions on the internet. It's really fast and convenient way of shopping. Without the traffic and queuing on the cashier. Items are more cheaper in the auctions. I never got disappointed on a product I bought though. But there was one time, the product that was sent to me is not the same as the product I ordered, so I returned it. The shop even gave me a freebie for waiting for the exact product to be shipped again to me.

I have purchased sennheiser px 100 headset for 50% discount from http://www.mambomart.com/product_info.php/sennheiser-white-p-335 . I think these kind of discounts are available only in online shopping.

I shop online a lot. It saves time. Several companies offer free shipping if you order a certain amount. Also, I found that if somethings on sale, the store may be sold out and you can usually get it through their website. However, if you are buying clothing, you should probably purchase a brand that know your size because shipping is not usually refunded on returns.

i love shopping on the internet. there was one period of time where i went crazy over it. i was on ebay practically everyday and scouring the stores. i also use search engines to find sites that sells things i want. i stopped because i realise i've bought way too much stuff. thing about internet shopping is the inability to touch and feel the product. therefore i don't buy things i have to touch before buying. things like bedsheets are good because as long as the colour and threadcount is good, it's pretty safe.

Yes, and no. I HATE looking through page after page of stuff on the internet, especially online catalogs. I would prefer to sit down with a catalog and look through the pages. I hate you can't see the item before you buy it. Clothing I will not buy online, because I have to try it on before I buy it. You can avoid traffic and long lines shopping online, and find just about anything you want to find. So I think there are advantages and disadvantages to shopping online. As for my online shopping, I will do it if I find a good deal, or looking for something hard to find.

No I donnot like Shopping online. I want to see what I am getting. It might look good but once you get it it doesn't look like it looked on the Picture. I once brought a ring from shopping online, that ring was nothing like I thought it would be. I like to see what I am getting. Happy Holidays!!!

i like shopping on the internet, at last several months, i bought a pair of shoes and some books, and other personal gifts.i'm very indicated in here, as on the internet, there are many choose.and the price is always lower than in store. so that if no any matrial problem, we always would be buy on the internet. of course, due to on the internet, we buy everything depend on picture, so that i'm a little afraid, so we do not buy high price goods. good luck and have a nice day!

Yes, I like to shopping on internet as it was so convenient and fast delivery. Normally I buy online when I don't have time to go shopping at mall. Some item purchased from online is quite cheap. But some item purchased may not be satisfied.

I like it when I can do some shopping online. Just last night I closed a deal. It is a sd card for my MP5 and it is cheap. It will reach me in three days. I am now looking forward to its arrival at me. I have bought a few articles on line and am pleased with them.

Apart from groceries and household items I buy 90% of all my shopping online. I only buy from reputable websites and have never had a a bad experience. I always check the return policies incase I do not want to keep something I have purchased.

frankly, i dont know if i will like it or not. because until now, i havent gotten the books that i bought from the internet some days ago. i do feel it's much more convenient, but i just hope the quality will be satisfied by me, and then i'll decide to buy more online or not.

Hi Chriszh, obviously I love internet shoping and i just finish two deal today, maybe someone think internet shoping is unsafe because we can touch not the goods and hard to change it when not dissatisfaction with it, but its price is reasonable and we can find more goods that a really shop on the street just stay at home.

Hi chriszh, I love shopping online, it's so convenient to search almost every merchandise you want, there is no the traffic and queueing. I mean sometime you don't have much time go to the mall, but it will be a diffierent matter if you want to enjoy the shopping with your family or friends LOL And in my view, the internet shopping will be a trend in the coming future, coz I think it has the unmatchable/unparalleled advantage in comparison with the entity store, they don't need to pay the expensive rent. Thanks
