Hi everyone just done my first review awaiting for a response back as also had changes of circumstances as I’ve posted before husband loosing his job...
anyway I’ve saved £30 over the last 2 months to get my daughter some new trainers so I’ve ordered 2 pairs off amazon for her.
Is that allowed and won’t be moaned at for using amazon?
Silly question I know sorry.

As long as you pay for them from your savings you are same - same with Ebay as long as it's not a business.

As Kallis says, both Amazon and Ebay are OK --- they are simply 'shops' that happen to trade online.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

I had the money saved over those months left in my bank account to pay for it online to amazon. I don’t have any business or credit accounts as I know there a big no no, found there cheaper online than in town.

Panic not ... its fine. I used ebay to sell unwanted items in the home during our iva and used the money to fund new clothes, birthday and Christmas presents.

Saving where possible should be encouraged(its not always possible). Hope she enjoys the trainers!!
