Advantages Great price comparison; prodcuct reviews, easy to use; cheap deals
Disadvantages None for me
I do all my online shopping from Amazon, mainly because it's cheap, affordable and comparable.Amazon is basically an online 'catalogue' website of all different stuff to purchase, either brand new from Amazon and alternative sellers or 'used'.
****** Registering with Amazon ***********
What I love about Amazon is that it remembers my previous orders or stuff that I've recently looked at. When you register (which is really simple) you can save all your bank details and postal address so you don't have to type it in again with every purchase you make. I have selected for the website to 'remember' me, so when I log on, it says 'Welcome back Alaycia' at the top of the screen. However, for security reasons, when making a purchase, I still have to -re log in with my password, which is very good if someone uses my computer and enters to web.
Because the website remembers all my previous orders, stuff held in my shopping trolley for later and things that I have viewed recently, it'll display a whole list of recommendations with products on the welcome screen which is fantastic. For example, I recently ordered 'Big tunes back to the 90's' CD, thus, when I next logged in, there were lots of Dance and 'Mash Up' cd's recommended for me.The screen colours consists of blue and orange toolbars. It's quite plain, nothing fancy or glitzey but then again, this makes it easy to use.
The website is very easy to use. On the left you have all your categories, like: Books, Music, electronics, toys etc... As you place your mouse on each category, a sub menu will automatically appear and detail subsections. So if I went onto 'Electronics' to sub categories displayed are: 'Camera & phone'; 'IPOD, MP3 & Accessories'; 'Sat Nav, Phones and PDA' 'PC and Video games' etc...
When you click on these, they'll be a list down the side which categories, say, camera's, into the different manufactures.
This allows you to go to the exact section you want. Alternatively, if you know of a particular product you want, like an 'Apple Iphone', just type it in the search box and it'll display the results.
