I suppose it depends on what I'm buying, but generally I tend to use Amazon and Ebay for my online shopping needs!
I always find myself using these sites because:
- Both Amazon and Ebay have a huge selection of products to choose from. It's only in very rare instances that I can't find something that I'm looking to purchase on one of these websites.
- These sites are: Tried, tested, and trusted. This is very important to me when it comes to purchasing items online. Most people are far more likely to buy from established websites which have a good reputation than they are from smaller and less-well-known stores.
- I already have a profile on both Amazon and Ebay. I have purchased products from these sites for many years, therefore it's just easier for me to use them. I know how they work, I already have my details saved on them, and they're quick and easy to buy from. Sometimes too easy!
- Value. More often than not (and especially on Ebay) you can get good value for money - if you look in the right places! As a frugal type I place value high up on the list of why I continue to purchase from these online stores.
