Hi, Randall!
I have two experiences shopping on line.Shopping on line now is becomeing more and more popular in China for its convience shopping way and unbeatable price.
Though this way to consume is hot,I did not like to choose it before as I did not know how to pay the bill and worried about being cheat.The quality of the product is the most important thing I have always been concerned about .The fist thing I bought on line were several imported books which I cann't find in my town.since then, I love order books on line .It saved me a lot and the working efficiency is great.The MOST important thing is I am not so worried about the book'quality compare to the other product.I just buy books on line.

Online shopping is especially popular in Korea, because the rate of internet is 94 percents per family. So, these days people almost experienced internet shopping.
I also experienced it and very like it. One of the merits is easy to find something that I want to buy it or see it. Also, As the price of goods was always contended by seller, it is more cheaper than traditional store. Moreover, there are large range of goods with low price & high quality on the internet. Above all, it is very comfortable to buy something. If you want to buy something, you can just click, paid and wait.

But, there are also inconvenience of online shopping.
First of all, you will have some trouble to refund purchases, when your purchases displease you. Especially, you have to consider buying clothing because you can't try on clothing.
Besides, you can buy imitation for lack of direct contact.
Nevertheless, online shopping is developing from day to day so a matter of online shopping become gradually disappeared.

Online shopping is popular in Taiwan, though many people still enjoy traditional shopping. You can buy the same goods at a lower price in the website. It's quite easy to click on the item you want. A few days later, the goods will be delivered to your home or nearby convenient stores. Pay the money, you can get it.
Online shopping can't offer any guarentee. Demanding a refund is also troublesome.

In my country (Peru) is not popular online shopping. I know only one friend who buys online books because she says is easy and good quality. I think to be success buying online products depend of the type of product and the company’s guaranty. About me, I had never try before online shopping because I like touch and look closely the product before I buy it.

The advantages of online shopping is that you can find things you are looking for easily and buy them so quickly. Just go some online shopping websites such as an Amazon or E-Bay, then type the product name that you are looking for. The product name you typed is going to come out on your screen in one second, and tell you how much it costs, what it looks, what kind of quality it has, so on. If you like it, you can buy it by following their instruction. Within 10 minutes, you can finish shopping without going out! On the other hand, there is a disadvantage of online shopping. Like some stuff that you might want to try on before you buy, such as clothes, shoes, glasses, etc, obviously you can't try on them, so you can never know they match you or what size exactly they are. Though, I still love Online shopping. I believe that it could be really useful depending on how you use it.

I'm from Japan, thanks.

Online shopping support us a convenient space to compare the price. Although it is more cheaper and convenient for us to shopping, there's something we need to pay some careful attentions. For example, it can't promise the color, style or size that are really what we want. if you want to shopping on the internet, remeber to confirm the goods are really what you want more than one time.

I live in Italy, and here is very famous online shopping. The most famous site is E-bay, where they buy all objects of all kinds.
I have never buy online, because I think it isn't safe! Because there are so many scams on the Internet ... Many times when you buy on the internet, the things don't come to you! I think it's better to go to a store, so you can see, feel and touch what you want to buy.
I recently heard on television that the Chinese's clothes are dangerous and spoil your skin.
But it also has advantages, because a person can stay home and buy without going outside.

Online shopping is agood idea for me. People who can't leave home or can't go in a particular shop, can order everything what they want and receive that at home. There will be also less air pollution beacuse you havent to take the car. You can also compare different products without moving from your house

In my opinion shopping on line has a many advantage. First you don't need to go out of your house. In this case you saves both time. You don't need to drive, so you can be relax in your home. You don't to pay a park for your car, today, in Brasil is absolutaly expansive stop your car in shopping. So is certainly cheaper to use internet for buy.

Hello, I buy online only if I can. It's cheaper way too get goods even after covering the cost of delivery. I live out of the town. Although I prefer buy foods on my own especially vegetables and fruits. I think present-day this kind of shopping are very popular in each parts of the words but it does not replace common one.

Nowadays, online shoppig is becoming more popular.Fist of all, Buying online is faster and more convenient than traditional shopping. Moreover, you can find some amazing things on the Internet.However, shopping online sometimes means spending a lot of money. For example, you may spend more money buing online than in a shop. Futhermore, the clothes can not suit you. As for me, I like buying online but i don`t do it often. If I can find something interesting I can order it on the Internrt. I spend the most of my money on accessories because I like details in image.
