hw's the outcome? hw's the item?
I love some of the items online... ...feel like buying bt, didnt buy frm net before...so what to look out for?
hi you both.. normally which site do you ladies browse? i too have my reserve about buyin online as scared can get cheated.. but some online stuffs r so so nice...
Yes, to both auctions and online stores. So far, my personal experience has been good. Prompt delivery and items arrived as expected.
One thing I hardly buy online is my own clothes as I feel that even with measurements, I cant really visualise how the whole thing will turn out and if it will fit me. Things like texture, materials, colour run, shrinkage etc are what I'm particular about but if I buy online, I find it's hard to decide just basing on a few words or a few pictures.
Things like DVDs, books, skincare and kids' clothes are ok for me.

I am also tempted to buy those korean/japanese online items...some of the clothes are very pretty! Esp dresses and denim jackets... But never did before...scared $ go out never come back....
Anyone has any experience buying korean/jap stuff....they are really pretty .
i bot clothes for my dear son and dear daughter from online. mostly GAP/ON, it is cheap and items all fine.
other online items some from this forum, in good condition, some other stuff bot in ebay loh....
actually, it also depends on seller whether is sincere anot loh..
I like online shopping too.
Asos.com, vs.com really have nice stuffs.
I think this topic can be very subjective.It is true that some sprees do not deliver on time, but I feel it is still not so bad in SG as in "cheating" as not deliver items when payment is make.I myself has done some spree shopping online before though have encounter some delay incident, but eventually shipment still arrived eventually.
I am an blogshop owner myself too selling beauty products and understand a good reputation may take times to build up and if anything goes wrong, bad reputation can spread like spider web on internet.
The best way I guess is to COMMUNICATE more with Spree owner before commit to purchase an item. Get more advice from friends who are regular online shoppers . And after that is the mutual trust between a buyer and seller on an agreed term.A good online shop owner will response more promptly,they are more honest in replying regarding customer enquiry on products. So you have to judge yourself .
I like shopping online too. Usually checking the size in their local outlet here so can be more sure to buy or check the size measurement they usually post in their website. And indeed for some brands, they are cheaper for online shopping.
Happy shopping ^.^
so far i only purchased from 2 spree organisers.
so far so good.
I love online shopping too.
Bought a lot of stuff online myself.
Just be a be more careful will do.
Buy with reputable sites...
I love online shopping as it was tough to shop long with a fussy baby in tow. Many items are also available online and not in local stores, especially since I live in KL.
Items bought online include: modern cloth diapers, diapering accesories, cloth pads, shampoo/conditioner/bath foam/soap, books
Things to note:
- reputation of seller and store (I always check reviews out or go by friend's recommendation)
- secure payment mode (I never reveal credit card info to small stores; PayPal is great; or fund transfer to reputable small stores only)
- for first purchase, I'd buy a small amount. When confirmed that I like the shopping experience, then I'd return to make larger purchases.

Happy online shopping!

most of the time, is okay but sometimes the items i receive is not the same as pic, hmmm, mostly the biggest diffe is the quality n color..
and depends on what you buy, if is those more 'ex' stuffs, better meet up with the seller.
few mths ago, i bought a coach bag online, my hubby drove me all the way to bukit timah, just to check if the bag is authentic.. =)
I've started my online purchase during my confinement and I'm addicted to it. Nowaday, I will always check where can I get cheap stuff for my baby and myself. Sometime can get very cheap stuff from online.
Recently, I bought 4 bottels of Nordic Naturals Children's DHA direct from USA and only cost me about S$25 per bottle. I bought S$43.10 per bottle in Singapore. It's really save me a lot for this product because I know this product is good for my girl and she like it. Delivery will be about a week.
