I am something of an old timer in the field of online shopping. Till now, I have done online shopping for several years and have passed through various things at one time with another during these years. Among them, there are listed experiences which can be considered as the special ones.
1. The most frustrating shopping experience.
My first online shopping was done on eBay. And the rule in those days was that the postage was charged by the number of times rather than the number of packages. While the seller I dealt with insisted to charge the postage of each article alone. Finally he agreed to charge 20 Yuan in total after noticing that I was about to give up. Astonishingly, a few days later, I was called by the express company to take the parcel by myself. After much questioning, I got to know the man actually charged me the cost of express but delivered my parcel by a logistics company. It pushed me to flag a cab to take the parcel at larst. What freaked me out is that the fare of the round trip plus the postage was higher than the price of the commodity I bought. Then I made a complaint to the eBay, it turned out to be futile because the money had been paid to the seller, and the custom service was baffled to do nothing but send out a warn to the seller.
2. The most breathtaking shopping experience.
Just a few days ago, I hunted two pieces of lovers' paired pajamas at Taobao.com. While I clicked the express delivery by mistake, and I wanted to choose the surface mail originally. Finally, I asked the seller to make a change of the way of delivery. I was consumed with the idea that there was no need to worry about the time it spent on delivery for the pajamas were in no hurry to use. Till today, it has been ten days since the time of delivery, but I am not anxious at all. While tonight when I suddenly found that the state of my transaction turned to be 'completed', I was quite taken aback by this. Then I composed myself to look back the whole process of transaction, the key to the problem began to come to the top. Due to my mistake, I chose the express delivery at first, and the time limit of express delivery is shorter than the surface mail. And in fact, the pay treasure measured my time by the express delivery though the surface mail is my choice. As a result, the default payment was held to the seller because of my deferred payment. If it happens that the seller knew this information from the very beginning and never made the delivery, I would have to say goodbye to the money I have paid. Fortunately, the credibility of the seller I chose turns to be very high. And I believe he will not do this kind of thing for such a slight profit. This is really the most breathtaking shopping experience I have ever had, while what I am wishing is that it will turn to be more scared than hurt finally.
