Well, some items you couldn’t get in your country, you can get it elsewhere and what better way to shop than going online. For those who love to bid and enjoy superb pricing on their products, one can do such thing on eBay. Localized version are also available, as such my country of origin, Malaysia also has it’s own eBay.

One of the interesting things about eBay International though is that I can use Paypal to pay for my products. Now one thing a lot of people are afraid of shopping online, especially in the vicinity of a country like Malaysia, is security.
