We've had Best Online Shopping Websites - Computer & Electronic Parts, but what about all the others?


Which ones would you recommend?


And which ones to avoid!

Not strictly a "shopping site" per se, but if you are after something it's great for quickly finding out who caries it, whether they have stock, and which of many sellers have the best pricing.

I use Aliexpress for all kinds of stuff.

We just bought the best Monopoly game ever from there. Also clothing, tools, stepper motors etc.

Tools for example are way cheaper than anything that you will find locally and the quality is good.

The one biggest problem I find when buying online from overseas, is that the item often arrives damaged in some way. Usually it is the result of poor packing, and not enough padding around it. So it can sometime be false economy with all the hassle of dealing with that.
