Online shopping

posted Apr 17, 2016 10:26:45 by RedSeol
Are you a frequent user of online shops? Internet is so powerful today that we can buy almost everything online. It does save time and energy to go out and do the chore manually, though we must also be careful in picking the shops and quality of goods. My friend used an online shop to buy a mobile phone was and unfortunately the product was a black market phone.

Although I don't do it too frequently, I do enjoy shopping online. My most preferred online shop is eBay, which I use about once or twice every couple of months.

I shop online almost every day. If it's not to order groceries and other goods, it's to pay bills etc. It has become a vital part of my life now.

Have you ever feel disappointed by items' quality once they are delivered? One reason why I always hesitate to use online shops is because I have no way to make sure that the items sent are exactly like what I see on the websites. It's too much a hassle to complain later once I've got the items, especially because I am living at a small city.

I have been known to send things back that are not quality merchandise. Granted, I have to pay the shipping but it's better than keeping something you don't want or can't use. I liken this to buying something from a department store without trying it on and then having to return it. Now I have gas, my time and standing in line to deal with. Online shopping is wonderful.

This is why reputation and reviews are such a big thing on the internet now. You can make a living buying products and writing reviews for them. Generally if they are rated high with a lot of reviews, they have passed the test because Google has the power to shut them down.

I would avoid online shopping if I were you. I'm sorry to hear your friend got a bad product instead. My brother received clothes with different colors than what he ordered online, even though it was a reputable website/seller. I can't trust anything posted online anymore. Sometimes doing it the traditional way is better.

I like doing online shopping and I do it frequently. I usually shop for products that are from foreign countries since it's hard to find them in where I live.

Shopping online is a great way to save money, honestly. Many stores offer cheaper prices for items when they're bought from their website as opposed to in-store. The best place to shop online I think, though, is Amazon.com. They always have awesome deals on things AND if they get something wrong on your order, they have amazing customer service. If one item was wrong on your order, they've just shipped every item that was on my order at no cost. Super pleasant!
