Selling/Purchasing Online

How many of you actually purchase products online? What types of things do you purchase? I was thinking of starting either an Etsy or Artfire account online but with the economy I am not sure if it is a good idea, or a waste! What are your thoughts?

  • I buy and sell on eBay. Never tried Etsy. With eBay it did take a little while for me to see a profit though with eBay fees and such. I do get extra income through there now. Good luck.

  • I purchase alot of stuff online like jewelry from overstock online, eBay computer parts, Zapatos for shoes and Peapod which is a online grocery store in my area . I love it because I sometimes work long hours and being pregnant these things are brought into the house and I do not have to carry them.

  • More then half of all my purchases are done online. I buy alot of clothes online, shoes, anything the kids need for sports (bats, cleats, uniforms etc). From time to time I do purchase on Etsy but mostly its for special items someone may have on their gift list.

  • I never used to but my BF runs a company selling stuff on ebay and does well at it but boy does he have to deal with some scamming douchbag buyers. Ebay is so set up to fuck the sellers in favor of the buyers 9/10 times. It's frustrating.

    He always wants to buy everything online too because he can get it cheaper but I'm so trained to not wait for stuff that I struggle with it sometimes when I want it now lol

  • Nothing online except books and CD's we cannot get locally . We prefer to support local businesses and the local economy .
