With the development of E-business, many people tends to buy something online because in this way, they will not go outside, wait in a long queue and be crowded. Also,the E-business price is always lower than that in the store. But still, a large part of people have not accepete the concept of E-business, instead, they prefer the traditional way of shopping. They belive that it is always better to see the product by themselves before purchasing. Although the safety and quality online business has been guarenteed thanks to some third-party regulation, they still do not intend to try this popular mode. So here I just want to make a survey that do you dears prefer doing shopping online?

yup.becuase its more convenient, but you must pay only via paypal. and pay if his/her paypal is verified. so that if the item has not been delivered you can ask for a refund. buy also from trusted online sites like ebay and amazon

As far as I am concerned, I think I do not prefer to buy things online,which I think is not so credit in nowadays for me. With my experience that I have been cheated by the shopping online several times. I am afraid of being cheated again,which is so terrible.

Actually I shop online or in-store based on certain specifics. Clothes? In-store (unless they're from Japan). Music? Online. It just depends. But if I were able to try on clothes online, I would definitely be clothes shopping online.

For me personally this is the only way to shop now! I love shopping online and it's just so convenient and easy. I guess there will still be some people that like to go shopping using the traditional method of walking down the high st! This used to be me once upon a time, not anymore though! I think that things are generally cheaper when you buy online and it kind of cuts out the middle man as it were. Yes, there are postage and package charges but I don't mind this if it means that things become that much easier. I think it's perfectly safe to shop online as well although some research needs to be carried out beforehand regarding a particular company before making the decision to actually purchase something from that company.

I want to but don't like the ideas now out there because of scam, fraud and sometimes get charge backs from your credit card. The internet is a place for that already but I didn't say all. If I get to witness that someone did really get his goods in that site then I'll order it from there. E-bay is particular in doing net frauds now and I can't risk joining there.

hello there, well for me i am an addict to online shopping because in my country there are certain things that are not sold so i had to shop online and that is probably the reason why i love to shop online so much. Well i think there are certain factors for people to shop online. First is that the thing they want to buy is limited in one country only and it is not sold in their country. Second is that the thing they want to buy is cheaper online including shipping. Lastly so are just too lazy to go and find the things they want in their country. So for me is that things i wan to but is limited and it is not sold in my country. I do agree that some people who prefer to see the things they one before purchasing it but there is always reviews and feedback on the items so i do not think it is a problem. But i have to agree that is is sometimes quite dangerous as it is usually unsafe to buy online. I had on time i paid for a cd and it never came. It is frustrating but i does not bother me after that incident. I still love to shop online. :)

it depends, like if the item is more cheaper online including delivery then i will rather order it online, though you have to make sure first if the seller is legit enought for the transaction though i dont give out big amouint of money or i will ask for meet up.

I like to do shopping online but not for everything. Clothes are one of those things that I don't like to buy online, just because I like to be able to try something on before buying it. Majority of the time when I have to buy a gift for someone, I buy it online. I find that you can get things cheaper, and there are so much stuff out there that online shopping is like the worlds biggest mall, except much easier and quicker to find what you are looking for.

I love to do Christmas shopping online. I don't have to deal with long lines at the stores. Nor do I have to deal with crowds. It's all so much easier ordering stuff online and just waiting for the packages to be delivered to my house. I also have never had a problem with a lost package or a late package. So it works great for me. The only thing I won't buy online is clothes. I rather see the garment and try it on for sizing. As for buying using a credit card I feel secure that my credit card number is not going to get into the wrong hands.

I never wanna do shopping online. There are many hackers that could access your card number that's why i don't give my card number on the internet. I prefer buying the traditional way.
