A: What are you doing?
B: I’m just looking for a nice pillow on Ebay.
A: You are shopping for a pillow online? That’s absurd!
B: Why? I don’t have to leave the house or browse a dozen stores to find what I’m looking for. This way, I just search for it online quick and easy.
A: I see, but how do you pay for it? How do you know you aren’t going to be ripped off by the seller?
B: Well, the website handles a point system where if the seller does something wrong, people comment negatively and then you know that he or she may not be trustworthy. A: Wow, that sounds pretty safe. So how do you pay? Do you need a credit card?
B: You can use a credit card or your debit card. They also let you use the PayPal system which is really safe and fast. I have never had any problems with someone hacking my information or anything.
A: Do you think I can find a sweater for my dog online?
