Regarding Online Shops

am just wondering and looking for some views ...

for those who purchases things from an online shop, what are your concerns?
and for those who shy away from making purchases from an online shop, why?

this is becuz when i buy from the online shop, i see those super nice pictures, and prices cheaper than those that i see from retail stores, i cant resist the urge to be tempted to buy one of them. but many times (not all), the things arrived dont really resemble the images as shown.. but this dont really keep me from buying online thanks to the convenience of having the things "sent" to my house directly though.

(i hope im posting this in the right place)

i cant help to agree that indeed the "fake" stuff spoil the market, but to a certain extend.

teenagers who doesnt have the spending power will still turn to getting cheaper things with compromised quality as compared to working adults. yes no?

Re: Regarding Online Shops

its a risk all online shoppers hv to take. best is go to e store n see e thing for urself. if u love e affordability n home delivery, den do research on e store first. if mostly positive online review den can buy. some unscrupulous shops photoshop their clothes until nice nice but in e end the real thing is diff frm wat u see online.

Re: Regarding Online Shops

Yes. I also afraid of this happening. And this mostly happen in asia country only. I never met any dissatisfaction of making purchase in western country.
But in asia, lot of those china product which is terrible. it give me the wrong product or even sometime the product is too much difference from the picture. Even i working in this line , i also afraid of making purchase. I will check the feedback properly before i purchase.

Re: Regarding Online Shops

HI Making online purchase. Is Ebay consider a good online auction and purchase shop?

I thinking of buying japanese figures from Hongkong through this site and so far the rating is around 99 to 100% positive feedback.

Payment is all in US dollars but will convert automatically through Paypal.

Re: Regarding Online Shops

Hmm .. then again would u spend money to import the things and then only sell those that is of acceptable quality and discard the "not good" ones? or just continue selling?

(as in .. incur the lost urself)

Re: Regarding Online Shops

You should always request for "real life" photos.
Never trust the photos they provide there..

The photos are being spread-ed around and many manufacturers actually uses the photos and produce their own. Thats why there are products of diff qualities.

Re: Regarding Online Shops

i would still try the items if i really like the pictures and the price is reasonable..
normally i buy clothes and they look the same.. that's for local types like livejournals..
i dun buy taiwan/korea clothes as i heard it doesn't look e same or the quality is different

Re: Regarding Online Shops

I would think the integrity of particular online shop is my major concern. From my experience, most online shops that offering cheap prices can be a trap to cheat shoppers money.

Re: Regarding Online Shops

Hi,

To purchase from online shops would entail some risk as there is no way you could check the item that you are interested in, and the mode of payment certainly requires integrity on the part of the seller as well as the trust on the side of the buyer. It is always good to check out the online retailer before buying (through forums and your friends etc). However, do take note that some of these forum replies might not be true and representative of the real online shop.

By the way, I have recently started an online shop selling dresses and tops, and I am offering discounts for the purchases as well. Do support me!! My website is www.akzimuthe.weebly.com. Do add me on Facebook (search for The Akzimuthe Shop) as well as Like my page too! Really hope to hear from you all soon!
