    I only buy from:

    1) Company whom I know, or.
    2) Website whom my friend recommended
    3) Website where other peoples had bought in and recommend it
    4) Have a real address, and real employees working it ( I will actually call them).

    Well, a lot.
    Among the popular ones.

    Amazon.com
    PayPal.com
    Dell.com
    GoDaddy
    Lots of Web Hosting companies
    eBay
    Lelong.com.my (used to, not anymore, too many fraudsters I guess.)
    Btw, I've setuped a new site at www.JomLelong.com . (Soon to be launched)
    uBid.com
    TigerDirect.com
    Apple.com
    Some niche websites for auto accessories.
    Treonauts.com
    Zinio.com

    ... the list goes on, you get the idea. I probably do 20-30% of my shopping online. And I definitely research online before buying any stuff, even my car.

    Until next time, explore the possibilities.

    Red face

    yes, i buy my stuff online

    convenient way and it excites me receiving whatever i buy while waiting for it to arrive

    it saves time, energy and money as well as you don't have to pay for fare or gas and paking fee or eat outside....

    gives me good choices at the tip of my fingers ...

    for books, yeah fairly good choice coz of the different promos

    these are my fave sites:

    ebay for varieties
    Comboutique : design your own t shirt - custom t-shirts - t shirt printing for personalized stuff like shirts, mugs and tote bags
    urbanoutfitters for different outfits


    there you go!

    howdy, I am a Malaysian, I guess I am the odd ball here. I get most of my hobby stuffs online

    Just look out for reputable niche forum of ur interest for recommendation of online business.

    It doesn't matter to me if they do not have telephone.

    In the end it comes fundamentally on trust and how much or how willingly you are to trust the merchant.

    I guess it goes the same for the online merchants.

    Generally credit cards company are more protective to buyers.

    However, rule of the thumb :
    1. Always do research on the merchant.
    2. If the deal is too good to be true, the chances is it is fraud.

    I beg to differ, Malaysian are less inclined to buy online due to misinformed from the public media as well as mistrust.

    Fundamentally the culture in Malaysian, they prefer to buy things from a store that exist physically to ease away their mistrust.

    Another possibility is due to tax incurred by customs and horror story of recovering one's good which is withheld by customs.

    Rule of the thumb as a buyer in Malaysia :
    1. No flammable accessories e.g. Limited Zippo lighters is no no.
    2. Electronics, cos you need to get Approved Permit from customs on top of getting approved by SIRIM. e.g. no Handphone, GPS or any cool and exotic electronics stuff.
    3. Any taxable item which is less than RM 500 under "Butiran 172, Perintah Duti Kastam [Pengecualian]1988 dan Butiran 90, Perintah Cukai Jualan [Pengecualian]2006" is exempted from taxation.

    Now this is the fact without some BS exp without solid proof of which law exempting your goods from being taxed.
