D'you like buying stuff online with all the options or in person where you can see and touch stuff and get instant gratification?

online bc i’m lazy and it’s super easy

occasionally i will buy things from the shop in person, but I’d say the majority of my shopping is now done online.

    I prefer to buy in person. Last time I got something online, I waited 3 weeks and the bank will not let me have a Debit Card to the point where I would have to ask a family member to order something online for me.

      I like both. I do like getting something in person, so I can have it right then. I also like to order some stuff, because that way I have something extra to look forward to in the next few days, like opening up a present to myself. :P

        I like shopping both ways, though I feel like I shop more in person. Most of the time if I want something or need something I would like it instantly therefore I'll just go out and buy it. But then there are those things I can wait for or maybe I just found better variety online

        I prefer going into stores to buy stuff, but I look online beforehand.

          I generally prefer buying stuff in person because I'm an impatient person and I don't like having to pay additional fees for things...

          But when I reallllly feel like I need something and I can't find it anywhere nearby, then I'll purchase it online. Although I generally don't really like giving out my credit card details to random websites, but thankfully most of my online transactions are done via paypal or amazon, so I'm not too bothered by it.

            I prefer in person because you don't have pay for postage if it does not work

              I do prefer in person unless I REALLY NEED IT. Paying for postage hurts so bad when it's not really essential and unavailable elsewhere.

              I hate how much postage often costs, especially for RUSH shipping.

                Most of the time I order online 'cause there are no stores in my area that carry what I want. Also, I have Amazon Prime so shipping is pretty much always free and expeditious.

                  There's something exciting about knowing that a package is coming for you later in the day.

                    It's your body, no one has the right to touch you if you don't want them to.

                    Most important, you gotta tell someone you trust. Like your parent, your teacher, a police officer.

                      Online because cheaper stuff and anything is found easy.

                      Depends on what costs more, honestly.

                      Depends on the occasion and costs. I usually end up buying where it's cheaper.

                      If I shop online it's almost exclusively Amazon Prime, which I use a lot ever since discovering same-day delivery free shipping. It's so convenient I even buy my cereal from Amazon. I like to buy clothes in person though, so I can try them on.

                      And they actually hand your packages to you in person, unlike Canada Post
                      Psyduck Canada Post and their "Attempted delivery while you were out" slips of L I E S

                      Depends on the the item. Small things that aren't clothing and aren't above £200 I would be fine with buying online, as they're either cheaper or easier to get.

                        I typically shop in person because i find it more comfortable and.. don't have a credit card. i usually only shop online when wanting youtuber merch, because that's basically impossible to get in store unless a store is carrying them which is rare.

                        I prefer buying something from a store but if it's something that I can only get online then I'll do it that way

                        Better to have it same day and don't have to pay extra for shipping than to have to wait weeks and have to pay for shipping
