Online Shopping Blues

Why does shipping costs so much?

It's great that there is this store that computes customs duties and taxes ahead of time so that there will be no extra charges when the merchandise arrives. There will be no delays in the delivery if the online store would quote your taxes and charges ahead of time. This also means that there will be no surprise additional costs and that your purchases would be delivered to your doorstep free from any encumbrances.

I hope that all online stores would be like this one. Giving us a quote on how much customs duties and taxes would give us an idea if we would go on with our purchase or not. There would be so much hassle if you'll be surprised to see that you can no longer afford to pay the taxes or if it would be very impractical to buy the small item with high tax dues.

Out of Stock

What if the specific style that you want is out of stock?

That is one of the biggest questions that must be answered in dealing with online orders. Sometimes, a certain style is in stock by the time you make your order but becomes rapidly out of stock by the time the merchandiser prepares your order. How will you deal with this?

Some merchandisers offer their customers with options. In, before finalizing your payment, you can choose either of the three options in the event that a certain order goes out of stock:
  1. Deal with the order according to the actual situation
  2. Replacement
  3. Send out other items directly
I chose the first option when I made an order at When I received a message that two of my orders are out of stock, I immediately visited their website to look for other styles that might interest me to replace the unavailable stocks. It was actually good that sends me a message to my email directly and informs me of the status of my orders.

What are your experiences in online shopping?
