I am sure there is no one here who would not know what Amazon.co.uk is, but, on the off chance...Amazon.co.uk is a website that started originally as an online book store. Now over the years it has grown and developed to sell a whole range of items. Including, Electrics, DVD's, CD's, Appliances, Toys, Games and many more.
Layout and Navigation
One feature I really like about Amazon is the suggestions that appear on screen, you can see what other people who brought the product you are viewing also looked at, so if you have similar tastes, might show you a great product to go with what you are looking at.I also like the fact that the prices are clearly shown, along with the options for purchasing new or used items, and how the prices change.
The items you view are displayed with a large picture, so you can assure you are viewing the correct item you intend to buy.Sign Up and Account
The account feature if extremely handy, as you can track any outstanding orders, see previous orders, amend your personal details as well as change payment details and get details on returning items etc.Prices and Purchasing
Once you have found an item you would like to buy, you can either add it straight to your basket for the Amazon price, or follow the "used and new" link to view different sellers of the item, and their differing prices based on the condition of the item in question.I always look through this part as usually you can find the same item in new condition for cheaper. One thing to be aware of with this is that some sellers will be overseas in USA of example, so postage and the time allowed for delivery will be higher.
Once you have selected your item and price, the usual online shopping process begins. You can add the item to your basket and continue browsing. In your basket you can review the items and delete or amend quantities.The checkout process will need an invoice address (usually where the card you are paying with is registered) and a delivery address. You can add multiple delivery addresses as well as multiple payment details to your account. At first I was a bit sceptical at having my card details saved on the website, but have never had any problems, and it really does speed up the payment process not having to input it all every time.
