When to Buy from Home

Like if this Guide is helpful
My work is having a formal event, and many of us girls are purchasing our gowns from eBay.

Some things to consider....

Postage!  One girl was crowing about how her dress only cost her $1.47 at Auction...postage?  $60!
Where is it coming from?  While many people have successfully purchased items from China, you have to be a bit more savy, and get the insurance, and understand it may take a long time to arrive. Use sellers your friends can recommend.

I chose to purchase my frock from an Australian seller, and while I paid about $20 more than some of my colleagues, it gave me peace of mind.  One girl who bought a frock from China has still not received it, after several weeks.

Don't forget that you are taking a risk...weigh up if it is an acceptable risk or not, and what you can do to mitigate the risk.
