Question: Do you shop online? Why? If so, how often?

Examples of answers:
  • Yes, I do. Usually they have better prices and payment conditions than the stores.
  • No, I don't, because I don't believe they will send me the right product that I bought.
  • No, I don't. Because I don't feel safe to fill any private information on the web.
  • Yes, by the way I'll buy all my Christmas gifts online. This is much faster!
  • Only when the price is really better. I still prefer to see and touch the product before I buy it.
Now it's your turn!

Yes, I do. I can't recollect the times I have used a credit card and gone to mercadolivre.com.br for a power air horn and other assorted items, which I decline to list herein. Never had trouble typing in my credit card number, never lost data to vicious hackers. Also, I remember having typed in the number of my credit card to join leading online dating website match.com, parperfeito and metadeideal all necessarily in that order. Curiously enough, I met this date of mine through none of these!

With credit card operations getting safer/faster and safer/faster, more people feel comfortable with using their credit cards to buy online more.

On my post "... join leading online dating website match.com..." should have read "... subscribe to leading online..."

Yes, I do. Because, usually, they have better prices and payment conditions than the stores. I always make a quick research to verify if the website is truly safe and if the company really exists.

Sometimes, this option is also good if you do not have enough time to go out and visit a store.

No, I don't. And neither do I shop in real life. Because I have no freaking money!!! T_T

No, but i thought about doing.

Nowadays I'm buying a lot on the internet.

I used to be afraid years ago, I was afraid of losing my money and don't recieve my products, etc....this type of fear that many people have.

Then, I started to buy supplements (for athletes) becouse they are much cheaper than phisical stores. So, I realized that these types of shop doesn't have troubles. And now I buy many things, like books, travel tickets, supplements, shoes, and I think that buy things on internet is so easily couse you pay lower prices and don't waste your time!!

cya.

marcelao!, you order shoes online? What if they don't fit your feet, do you return them for larger size shoes?

marcelao!
yaeh, and I had this problem, I've ordered a soccer shoes number 41, but they were too small, so I ordered to change for a larger one, and they changed without any costs. (in this web site, the FIRST change of a product that you buy is for free, and I think all sites do like this).

Marcelao,

Please compare my rewrite of your post and let me know if you understand why I made the changes. If you have any questions please let me know and I will try to explain why I made those changes.

"Today I buy a lot on the internet.

Years ago I was afraid of losing my money and not receiving the products that I had ordered, which is a common fear of many who have not used internet shopping.

I started buying nutritional supplements online because they were much cheaper online than in physical stores, and I gradually realized that most internet retailers provide an honest and efficient service. Now I buy many things like; books, travel tickets, shoes, and my supplements online. I believe that a person can save; effort, money, and time, by shopping online. "

Marcelao,

Again, please compare my rewrite with your original, and let me know what you think.

"Yes, and I've had that problem. I ordered a pair of soccer shoes size 41, and upon receipt they were too small, so I returned them for an exchange pair of the correct size. The retailer will, on a one time basis, exchange any product free of charge, and I think most if not all sites will do likewise."

I think the above is much closer to how a native English (American) would express himself or herself (to be P.C. or politically correct). ;)

Marcio meu amigo,

Two nitpicks and both are capitalization errors. A proper name is always capitalized, and the first word in a sentence is also capitalized. :? :roll:

I know that you know better, but I wanted to say high to you since, "I'M BACK". ;) "So you better be good and you better be nice ... because Santa Claus is coming to town" :lol: :lol:

Again, my friend, THANK YOU and ALL MY FRIENDS AT EE, for your concern, kind words, and well wishes with regard to my recent health problems.

Yes, I do. I always buy eletronics and books through the internet, because the product is often cheaper. Of course I take the necessary precautions (Always buying in famous stores or checking on the internet if there are many complaints about the store).
There are only 2 negative point in buying things online:
-Waiting until it be delivered.
-You can not see how the product really is (my mother once bought cutlery, and when she opened the box she saw that it was much smaller than she thought).
