Default Do you face the same problem?

Hi,

Whenever I buy something online, I will read a lot of reviews since I cannot see the product physically and to make sure I am getting something worth my money. What I do is google "(product name) reviews" and click through the links. It can be a bit frustrating to do that, especially when I can't find good reviews.

Does anyone face the same problem? Do you do the same thing as me?

Hi alfyy10, I know exactly what you mean. It's always a risk buying something online, especially if you're buying from a site you've never used before and you're not sure of their returns policy. If I've read too many bad reviews, I tend to avoid the product and look for alternatives.

When I only read bad reviews about the product, I won't buy it too. However, what I meant is that the reviews are badly written (eg. not informative enough). I usually spend some time sifting through many reviews to find proper reviews.

Just curious, how do you search for reviews? Any tricks to share?

I usually go to Amazon to look for reviews as they seem to be the most honest reviews from real people...if the item has bad reviews I tend to avoid it, unless the good outweighs the bad lol

Online shopping is convenient, before making order we must learn more information about the seller and inquery some problems such as shipping and return. Then we can buy relaxly. Auto parts website maxspeedingrods is a good seller.

Yeah it's really annoying. Thing that gets me most if when I order clothing online and it arrives looking nothing like it did on the website.

I wish they would all get together and agree on sizes too. The amount of times I've bought different brands of clothes which are labelled the same size but are clearly massively different is unreal. There needs to be a constant.
