Do it all the time. Just ordered a 3D printer kit. Can't wait to receive it and start building.

It depends on the item.

If it's a videogame, I'll wait as long as necessary. I can always rely on Ebay to get it at a cheap price, but at my local games store I'd be paying a hell of a lot more. So In the end it's worth the wait. I don't really feel like paying $90+ For a New Release when I can get it for $60 brand new off ebay and only have to wait about a week or two. Sometimes it arrives earlier. I also don't mind forking out the extra money for express postage.

When I order clothes from the UK I can usually wait 3 weeks, but if I can't wait I'll just pay for express which is usually delivered in 4 days

While I do a lot of ordering Online, it is still considered as a "last resort" in most cases. When I DO go about doing it, I always pay extra for Overnight...or at least within 3 Day shipping.

I don't like to have to wait too long for OTI goodies, hehe. Because if it was ordered Online, its always something really cool that I can't be bothered waiting Weeks or Months in anticipation of delivery for.

I almost always go for the cheaper price even if takes a few weeks. Almost everything I order is not immediately needed. I have plenty of things I can do to keep myself preoccupied before it comes. I have a bunch of games on Steam I need to get around beating. I have a bunch of animes on Crunchyroll I should get around to watching. I have plenty of actual school / work related things I need to get done. I can easily be doing other things until I get my package.

Sometimes there are exceptions to this. Once, my computer mouse died and I could no longer use my computer (I have a desktop). I need my computer for everything as a computer science major at college (school, work, communication, and of course entertainment). I ordered a new one on Amazon and upgraded for overnight 1-day delivery.

If you REALLY want stuff early, pre-order them. They'll sometimes arrive before the official release date

I don't really care about how long it'll take, since nothing has ever arrived within 3 weeks after I ordered something. I could always pay extra for extra shipping, but it's too damn expensive.

I'd wait 2 MAYBE 3 weeks max. Any longer feels too long.

As long as its not longer than a month.

When i first started ordering things online, every single day i was anticipating with excitement for the item arrival. And every single day it never fails to bring me disappointment. So , i stopped anticipating. The price to pay for cheaper goods online is the time of arrival. But if you have patience to wait it out , its all good.

In most situations I value a lower price over delivery time.

Unless it's something I need right way, like shorts for a vacation I'm going on or textbooks, I pick the cheaper option. I don't know if that is because I'm cheap or because I'm patient.

Either way, at least you're getting the 15% discount :3

If I order online I want my item within a week, and I want it to be right. I don't wanna deal with hassle of returning.
I recently had to return something( due to them sending me wrong item) and it kinda annoyed me. Then I felt like I should have just bought it at store!
But mostly that is rare to have a problem. I enjoy shopping online, but certain things like shoes I need to try on and stuff.
