Have you ever purchased anything online? Do you risk shopping on unknown websites? Or do you have certain trusted websites for shopping online?

Well....sometimes...however we have had experiences when things go missing and then you have to prove to them that you did not get it. That is annoying.
I was nervous at first but now I shop online frequently. I use Paypal where I can because it is a safe and secure system.
Yes I do. However, I am careful where I shop and only provide the most necessary information.
I have done it and still do, mainly on ebay.
My son has done it and he sent several thousand dollars for one item.....no problem.
It is really buying from a decent seller, and with ebay one can have 'some'
idea.I have only had 4 bad buyers in nearly 10 years.

As for other websites, a lot are very good too, it's not worth their time to be dishonest.
Pay Pal is just wonderful to use, and gives you peace of mind...and a lot of the sellers(outside of ebay) where it really started, use it now.
P.S. I bet they have a 2013-14 version of the book, may have to get it for myself...would be a very interesting read!

Initially I was a little skeptical, but now feel
good. No probs so far.
I am not an online shopper by habit, but when it's cheaper this way, or when I need something I cannot find in the local shops, why not? I go for trusted websites, though. I used to be more skeptical a while back, but I am getting more and more used to it.
I think it's perfectly safe to do online shopping so long as the website is secure. When you go in to provide credit card details, it should be a secure site - https and a little lock symbol should appear in your top left hand box (where you type website addresses). That is how you know you are dealing with a secure and registered website. I would not give any financial details to a website not displaying this as a minimum.
