    I enjoy shopping online to specific products that I know are better priced or simply can't get at a local store.

    Primary use companies within Canada (due to shipping times), however for international Amazon has and continues to work well for me. For the rare occasion I use eBay.

    I like shopping online for CDs tutorials about wordpress themes, SEO eBooks and Web hosting/domains

    Also I like hiring writers to write articles for my blogs and paid wordpress plugins.

    Shopping online? Is there another way to buy stuff? Oh wait, I have a vague memory of those things called 'stores'...yep, I remember them....

    I don't use any particular place to shop online, it's just wherever has what I need at a less expensive cost. I do, however, use Kmart.com a lot for layaway...I used to shop at Overstock.com, but not so much now. I would have to say my favorite right now, when I have money, is Tophatter.com, all they have are auctions, pretty awesome actually....

    When Venezuelans had access to American dollars, I used to buy at Amazon.com, and I'm very satisfied with every purchase. I once had a problem with a product, and they sent a new one without asking, no hesitation. They care for their customer satisfaction.

    The deliveries always arrived in time or even earlier than estimated.

    I would love to see if their drone shipping project finally comes true.

    I definitely like shopping online a great deal. I recently found a really awesome cheap indie T-Shirt company online that ships really fast and has quality merchandise that speaks to my style. I also buy a lot of books online and DVDs that I like to collect for my own libraries. Online shopping is also a great way to avoid a lot of hassles in the stores during the holiday season.

    The reason I love shopping online is because I can check out many products without getting stressed out.
    With just swipes of your smartphone screen, you locate the product you want and purchase.
    Very convenient unlike trying to purchase stuff in a shop where you have to walk a long distance to check out products

    Yes, I love shopping online. I don't have to drive there, park the car and walk a long way to get to the store, no crowds, no checkout lines, and I don't have to get dressed up (or at all) to shop online. Amazon continues to be my favorite online store and eBay on occasion. I don't know how I ever did without it!

    I am one of those people who really dislike things like Christmas shopping or shopping in-store in general! If it wasn't for Amazon, Walmart.com or Chewy.com, I would probably be miserable more often haha... I had to really buff up the security on my computer in order to continue my online shopping because there are just too many vulnerable websites in this day and age. I also like to take advantage of cash back apps like eBates so I can save money while shopping online.

    Well, I like to see the things that Amazon offers and I like to buy in there, but here in Venezuela we have some online stores like Mercadolibre and OLX, but Amazon is better, other ones that I like are Ebay and Gearbest that have a lot of Chinese products and I like to prove them all.

    Shopping online is simply revolutionary. Even living in the major city of a Caribbean country, I’m still restricted to products that don’t quite meet my needs. So online shopping definitely alleviates that headache.

    Another disadvantage that is remedied by online shopping is that the time and energy it would take me to get to a store, walk around, not find what I want, have to walk to another store, I save all that time. It’s simply brilliant. And I can compare prices immediately, search by keyword and ship to friends.

    Suddenly, rationalizing the need to walk all day to get exercise while shopping just seems lame. Online shopping rocks.

    I mainly shop online, except for food, groceries, drinks etc.
    I actually hated buying things online a lot of time ago, mainly because of the scammers on ebay, and the long delivery times. Even a small item would take up to 10 days to get delivered. Now transaction are safer and with Amazon prime I'm now buying a lot of things online. The fast delivery is amazing and their customer service is like no other. They'll answer immediately and solve everything in an instant. The item's prices are also very convenient, this is one of the main reasons they're so successful.

    Absolutely. I find it to be extremely convenient compared to IRL shopping, given how lower the prices are and how broader the availability is. Shipping times are negligible now, and are totally worth the wait. Furthermore, you get access to a plethora of products you'd never normally even know of, and that's not counting all the custom-made stuff that it would be impossible to deliver all across the world, otherwise.
    Unfortunately, the lack of the possibility to check out items before purchasing them makes scams much more likely to happen, but that never happened to me on trusted websites.

    Personally, i love it. The accessibility is just fantastic. Still, as with everything good, there is a bad side. There are plenty of scam sites out there that will not send the product requested or will send an item of inferior quality. It's always good to be well informed.

    Yes, I like it very much. Although, I like physically offline shopping too. But now that I'm busy for a while now, I prefer online shopping more. Also It's kind of a relaxing experience for me. I find it relevant as the online shop's got many more options to choose from. Some of the things that are available online, I can't have them in the local market. So it's always easier to buy those things online and get them delivered to your house.

    The idea seems nice. If I had unlimited money, I'm sure I'd love it. Although I'm really afraid of not being able to control myself that would result to overspending. I've read/heard psychological studies stating that buying things with actual money is more effective in letting you feel that you're spending. This is why I also don't use credit cards.

    Shopping online in my country is not that established yet. It takes time for us to receive our parcels so I don't usually shop online. I still prefer shopping offline since it's a good exercise for freelancers like us. One site that I only trust in my country right now is called, "Shopee". It's the most trusted online shopping site right now.

    One reason I like online shopping is that I hate crowd and I don't want to carry things. Shop online got them delivered. Definitely, shopping online means you can hunt for the cheapest deals without leaving the comfort of home.

    I love shopping! Shopping online saves me a lot of time and effort. I am a busy person and a few months back, I've been working really hard that I don't really move out my seat. During my 1 hour lunch break, I would visit boutiques online and scan for dresses or gadget accessories. It does saves me a lot of effort because online stores can deliver your goodies to your office address with at least a day after purchase. You can pay online (which I normally do) or COD - Cash On Delivery with are both convenient for almost every one.
