What does a recycling emoji or the word 'sustainable' mean in an online ad? A lot of the time, nothing at all
By Casey Briggs

How environmentally friendly are the goods you are buying? And how true are the big "green" claims advertisers are making in online ads? New research shows it's easy for marketers to imply their products are "sustainable" without necessarily backing it up.

Is Black Friday shopping becoming obsolete? An expert weighs in

With the increase of online shopping, many stores may begin combining their holiday sales.


#blackFriday #CyberMonday #houstonMatters #onlineShopping

You know you buy something from a website and then you get loads of bollocks sent to your email address, even though you selected the 'Don't send me bollocks' check box.

I mean, occasionally I go Hmm I might wanna buy that, but usually I don't. But they continue to send the bollocks all the same.

So...I may just have bought a laptop sleeve and an iphone tough case from my own Society6 shop and one laptop sleeve for my sister - because they are 70% off today and I couldn't resist 😅 (and I really can use them as I do not have such items at home yet 😅 )

Buyer beware this black friday.

I ordered new monitors from Amazon for $400, but I was disappointed to find out that they do not offer price matching. I saw a better model at Walmart with a 160Hz refresh rate and more features for only $169 each. I also found the same model I bought on eBay for a lower price and they were new.

I know that Amazon has a policy of not matching prices, but it seems unfair to me that I have to pay for the return shipping and deal with the hassle of repacking them. I feel like they are taking advantage of me and other customers. I am frustrated and don't want to argue with Amazon over a small difference. I will just avoid buying from them in the future.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Many weeks ago I ordered something from Galaxus and it didn’t arrive when it was scheduled to. A few weeks ago I ordered one thing but instead got half a dozen things. I thought “Why do I have so many extras, before realising that the order was wrong. They sent me the order that someone else had made.

For a while I thought “What do I do, do I let them know about the mistake or do I tell them. In the end I let them know about the mistake. By eventually I mean within half an hour, not five weeks. They told me to send them a list of all the items I had received in mistake, and to send it back to them.

When you see that Galaxus has made a mistake they will want the European Product number of each item, as well as for the package to be sent back. The Swiss post makes it quite easy to send an item back to the sender. You go to the Swiss post site, and within a few minutes you can register the return, and the next day a post man will pick it up as he delivers other packets. For fifty centimes more they will print the label for you. It’s cheaper than buying printer ink to print one page, and then have it dry up before the next time you print.

A few days after the incident I checked my orders list and noticed that the mistake I had declared was catalogued in their system under my name. The charge was zero francs but their system had catalogued the value of the items. If, for any reason, I had taken too long to send back the package, or an item had been missing I suspect I would have been charged for it, which would have been fair.

I was tempted to tell them that I was a blogger, and that if they let me keep the items I would write blog posts about each item. In the end I simply sent back the order within a day of realising.

Such an event tests your morality. It would be easy to say nothing, and see whether they ever notice. I didn’t want to take that chance. I like using Galaxus for ordering things online and if there was a mistake then I would want people to announce it, in the hope that I would not have to wait too long for a mistake to be fixed.

On their blog they speak about return rates in the French and German speaking parts of Switzerland but not about their error rates, and how often people are honest enough to report them. After ordering things on Galaxus over several years I have had one occurrence of something not arriving when anticipated, and another of getting the wrong thing. They are quick, and reliable so I will keep using them.

In Switzerland we have the luxury of not having to rely on Amazon. I see this as a luxury because Galaxus collaborates with plenty of online shops but provides a single point of entry. If you order things you can see a list of providers, and the difference in price.

I also appreciate that they use the Swiss Post rather than DHL, Fedex and other carriers. I like that they use the local post, and local couriers like Planzer on occasion.

»Black Friday - Wie kann man sich beim Onlineshopping schützen?«

Oh ja, da klicken die Menschen auf fast allem ohne, den #Inhalt vom #BlackFriday, den #online #Betrug zu erkennen. Meiner Meinung nach sieht man dem #Onlineshopping sehr wohl (meistens) an, wer es und ob es "sicher" ist. Ne hauptsache Klicken weil billig und bestellen, kann ja nichts passieren…

@rdfhrn Danke für den Tipp. Die sind mir bekannt, aber auch nicht ganz geheuer. Ich überlege ein weiteres Konto anzulegen, ohne Dispo, mit rigiden Limits und "wenig" Guthaben. Oder eine Kreditkarte ausschließlich für's #onlineshopping. Debit oder Kredit 🤔 Ich brauche mehr Zeit 😂 #privacy #privatsphaere

My recent experience with buying stuff on the internet from a small business made me very sad.

If the tech bro types would be running the jeans shop in the mall, they wouldn't hesitate to hire the shadiest looking dudes to stalk their customers, follow them home, and take notes on how often the jeans are worn and how they fit.

Why is stalking your customer after the sale is normalized when it's done digitally and automatically?

@gartentechniker Fakt 6: #amazon prime delivery ist Unsinn

Da die Zustellung immer schlechter wurde, hab ich #prime gekündigt.

Was soll ich sagen:

• Zustellung funktioniert besser
• persönliche Übergabe der Pakete
• mehrere Teile in einem Karton & ein Carrier, statt jedes einzeln über verschiedene Paketboten
• jetzt fährt uns sogar DPD an, bei prime sind die immer zum Paketshop
• trotzdem fällt kein Porto an, wenn Umsatz hoch genug

So my ongoing saga of #onlineShopping, what do I do now? The items are now marked as lost.

Three things, from three diff 'stores' across two #BrazilianRiver orders, all fulfilled from their warehouse.

The items are STILL listed as "get it tomorrow," but presumably if I can order them still, they could've just dispatched a new 1day shipment, no?

Do I try to order them again? Wish they'd tell us what the problem is so I can avoid that issue.

Maybe I'll order each item in a separate order!

#eBay #OnlineShopping

Pleased to say that eBay don't muck about. Been waiting patiently a few weeks for an order, and generously assumed they were waiting for stock.

So I asked them if this was the case, and selected "not requesting refund" just "wanting a response."


Days went by. Had a closer look and noticed the shop's lousy 84% rating, with dozens of people saying "they never sent goods" and "they never respond." Oops, I usually check that first, tho failed to this time.

Although I'd issued no ultimatums, eBay stepped in, said they've contacted the seller asking them to respond.

A week later, no demands from me...

eBay email announcing a refund for the item discussed.
" Your case for this item has been resolved. Unfortunately, we didn’t receive valid tracking information from the seller. We’re sorry you had a problem with your purchase. "

You read the reviews on this and see its a scam.. ..then you see the #Amazon listing specs and wonder why they're not protecting their customers

#solar #ClimateChange #ClimateCrisis #solarpower #renewables #renewableenergy #onlineshopping #scam

The costs of our addiction to convenience (in #onlineshopping) are paid by the #workers exploited by #Amazon.... but their increasingly 'mad as hell & not going to take it any more' (with apologies to Peter Finch).

We already know that in the competition between the #highstreet & #onlineshopping, #businessrates are a key issue impacting on shops ability to remain viable... so the prospect of an inflation-linked rise in business rates next year is already leading to concerns about the future of many retailers (big & small)....

Some may see this as special pleading by #retail, but when hight street retailers are closing we are losing a vital social resource...

Dear online vendors,

Please stop making it more difficult for me to use ephemeral, digital credit cards.

Yours truly,

Someone who doesn’t like using their primary credit card(s) or bank account information online when they can avoid it because I’ve seen how companies treat information security and digital privacy and it makes me very concerned

P.S. Stop making people sign up to your site and give more information than what’s necessary just to make a purchase. And, no, I don’t want your buggy app that requires a ton of permissions either.

I want to break my amazon habit (staying with my kindle though)

#Lithuania has no Amazon. This means online shopping is very much a parallel universe experience compared to how it works in countries with #Amazon:

You find a company that sells what you want (easy via price comparison services), order your stuff there, pay with your bank account (this is well integrated and secure) and get it shipped to the nearest parcel locker for €3, usually within 48 hours.

Just in case you were wondering what Amazon-free online shopping would look like.
