Describe a website you have bought something from
I always prefer to exercise a bit of caution when shopping online because the truth is not all websites or eCommerce sites are trustworthy. Now, lots of reasons can be provided here as to why they are not “trustworthy”, but I just don’t want to get into that. So, instead, I will just go ahead and talk about what website, I used, to buy a very nice pair of sneakers of Nike brand about 4 months ago.
Oh, the website, I used, to buy that pair of sneakers was “eBay”. Now, I am pretty sure that almost everybody, especially and at least, those who shop online, know about eBay. eBay is one of the oldest and most successful eCommerce websites on the Internet. But, the interesting thing about this particular website is that it doesn’t actually sell any items of its own. Instead, it just allows users (could be individuals, companies or businesses) to list their products or services for sale. I mostly buy products from verified sellers and brands. For many items, they offer a system in which users can bid on in auctions within a stipulated period of time.
By the way, I was really happy about the pair of sneakers that I bought because those were really nice. Of course, they were a bit ‘pricey”, but I would have to spend even more money if I had bought them from a physical store. But, the best thing about purchasing it from eBay was that my sneakers had arrived at my doorstep just on time, unlike many other eCommerce sites. ieltsxpress
Anyway, I have always liked using eBay, mainly because you will always get exactly what you pay for without any unpleasant surprise as eBay almost always sides with the buyer if and when things go wrong. Besides, there are just so many products or items on the site to choose from at a price that one can actually afford. However, what I dislike about using this website is that one will need to wait, whether he or she is a sole bidder or one of many until the auction closes.

No doubt, there are so many sophisticated eCommerce websites on the internet, but choosing one of them can be a bit tricky since we would never know if they are really that much reliable or trustworthy except, of course, we are talking about amazon.com.
Now, I think that there are very few people, using the internet to buy things, who don’t know about Amazon eCommerce website. But, still, to repeat, it is the world’s largest online retailer, manufacturer of electronic book readers and web service provider that has become the iconic example of electronic commerce industry all over the world.
Being founded in the year of 1994, amazon.com has actually revolutionized the way the business is done on the internet by incorporating the latest technologies on its website to the best possible effects. And I realized this, again, when I went to buy an E-book reader from their website about a few months ago for my 14 years old cousin.
By the way, the E-book reader, I bought, is the Amazon Kindle Paper white, which probably is the right choice for all kinds of users. And it didn’t even cost me that much money even though this sharp 6-inch device is packed with 8 GB of storage and 300-PPI backlit display. So, in the end, it was quite a deal for me, as I didn’t have to look anywhere else for what I was exactly looking for. But, the best thing was that it probably took me only about 5 to 7 minutes to finish the whole process of finding my E-book reader and the paying for it. ie lt sx pre ss
Well, what I really liked about amazon.com was that the website actually allows its customers to personalize and filter the product information based on the customers’ taste and preferences. Besides, I was very impressed with the way the website managed to organize its navigational features. It was designed and built in such a simplified manner (especially, for such a “gigantic” online retailer) that the customers don’t feel lost when searching for their products.

IELTS Cue Card – Describe a website you have bought something from
I don’t normally try to buy anything from website for some obvious reasons even though I like to visit them from time to time just for the sake of passing my time. But, the other day, I did use a website to buy something, and today, I would like to talk about that website to you.
The name of the website, I used in order to buy a pair of jeans, is called www.levis.com Of course, I had visited this website a few times but never really felt the need to buy anything from it as I am more into buying things by visiting the physical stores. But, this time, I visited the website because I desperately needed to buy a pair of jeans that would fit me.
By the way, it is not really easy to find my size, especially, if it is a pair of jeans pants because I am considerably thinner than the average persons. So, I actually have to spend a significant amount of time, trying to find a trouser from store to store, that would fit perfectly on me. But, this time around, I was struggling, even more, to find my size as I couldn’t find my size even after visiting a few shops in my city, and it was at that time, I decided to visit www.levis.com to find my jeans. Luckily, I found exactly what I needed as the website had a lot more collection of jeans than I had ever imagined! I felt like the website knew exactly what I was looking for, and thus helping me navigate through it seamlessly. So, it was indeed a very satisfactory experience.
Anyway, what I liked most about this website was that it had a rather simple but very effective design with very easy navigational features. Besides, I also liked the fact that it, unlike many other websites, offered a “cash on delivery” payment option for people like me who didn’t have any credit cards.

Today I’m going to tell you about tiki.vn, which is a website I have bought a lot of stuff from.
Tiki is one of the most popular online retailers in Vietnam and its website has been widely used and favored by millions of users recently. It is very famous for the super-fast delivery service and a variety of authentic products with very reasonable prices. Their diverse products range from clothes to household items, but the most well-known one is books. Almost every kind of books are available on Tiki, either Vietnamese or English books. And the greatest thing is that the price they offer is always 20-30% lower than in book stores. I have bought dozens of books on Tiki and never a time did I feel disappointed. I always received books within a day and they were all in good quality.
Last month, I decided to buy a new mobile phone as a self-reward after two months working extremely hard during the summer. Normally, I would go to the mobile store to properly examine the phone before making a decision to buy it or not. But this time, I made up my mind to try once buying an electronic item online to see how it would turn out to be. And I chose Tiki because the price on its website was 2 million Dong lower than in store. The process of purchasing was very simple as I could pay through online banking, which was super convenient. And the phone was delivered right on the next day with no breakage or errors at all. ielts xpress
Needless to say, I was absolutely satisfied. I think I will continue using this website in the future.

Shopping from website is very common now a day. A majority of people in my area rely on internet to sell and buy things online. Whenever I am to buy anything I take the help of trusted and popular websites if the thing is not available at shops or showrooms in my hometown.
Recently I bought a pair of shoes form Amazon. This is one of the most trusted and popular websites all around the world. Earlier I visited some shops and showrooms in my area to buy pair of sports shoes. But I was not satisfied. I logged in Amazon and browsed the lists of shoes they offer and within 10 minutes I successfully made the payment and ordered the shoes I wanted. IELT xpRESS
Within 5 days I received my order. I am quite satisfied because the quality of shoes is very good and I saved 300 rupees also. Amazon also secures its customers with money back guarantee if they are not satisfied.
I appreciate the services of the company. It offers excellent customer support, money back guarantee and on time deliver. Even it has access to remote area also. One thing that I wanted is Cash on Delivery. The offer is not available for my area. I wanted to shop more but if the company offers this facility I will do it in the future. Because there are many products not available in my area. And it is not possible to go out and buy. Overall I am happy with the pair of shoes I bought.

Well, I seldom opt for online shopping and have purchased very few things from websites so far as I find shopping from stores more reliable. Here I would like to talk about my last e-shopping experience. Due to this ongoing Covid-19 scenario, it has become harder for people to shop so I thought it would be safer to place an order online. I was looking forward to buy a face massage roller and disinfectant sprays for quite some time. About a fortnight ago, I was going through my Facebook newsfeed and I came across an advertisement displayed by Nykaa.com. Coincidently they had both the above-mentioned products that I was looking forward to buy.
Nykaa is an Indian retail seller of beauty, wellness and fashion products. It was founded in 2012 by Falguni Nayar. It has achieved a lot of success and popularity among consumers within these 7-8 years. They provide lucrative offers and discounts on festive occasions. Nykaa also delivers the consignments for free via Fed-ex courier services, they have a record of delivering the orders within 4-5 days of purchase.
I ordered a ‘Jade massage facial roller’ which is an ancient Chinese tool. It assists in better absorption of creams and face masks, boosts the blood flow and helps in aiding the lymphatic drainage. ‘Jade’ is a cool stone which provides a soothing effect on the facial skin and helps in toning the face muscles. I also purchased two Savlon disinfectant sprays which smell really good and help in disinfecting the surfaces like arms of chairs, car’s interiors and door handles.
I am extremely contented with both the products and its honestly my first pleasant e-shopping experience. The prices of the products also seemed reasonable and appeared the same when I received them as they appeared on the screen. The order was delivered within two days which was a cherry on the cake. There’s nothing that I disliked about using this website and I would recommend everyone to use it.
