It is a problem when they get the waifu order wrong and you have to send them back

If I could get something locally, that's where I'd go unless it's at least 50% cheaper online. If the game's discounted but also a digital download, it requires some light contemplation.

As for manga, I buy online cuz none of the geek stores here only sell the translated ones.
They charge 25% more than the already 10% extra I pay online lol.
BD sets are also more expensive locally.

I never had to wait longer than 2 weeks (I usually don't order much stuff online anyways). I never bought manga online as I always go to Barnes and Noble to buy manga (might have to start using online for a series or two for me to finish collecting it). I never ran into an issue where I get so impatient while waiting for it to arrive.

For me, how long I am willing to wait depends on the price difference. If I'm only saving a buck or two and I can conveniently buy it someplace that is close to me, I'll pick it up locally if I really feel I have to have it now.

I've bought some stuff online that has taken a month to 6 weeks to get to me, but those have all been things like The Persona 4 soundtrack, or books that I couldn't get locally. Under those circumstances, if you want it, you wait.

i pretty much wait a month or more to save a few bucks.
if im in a hurry, ill buy ebay from the nearest big city. (200 miles)
the town i live in has nothing about nothing.
the mall has 30 shops, half are shoe stores (mens, ugh) and the rest are food/womens cloths.
pretty much anything not sold at walmart i have to order online. i usualy just order from china and wait. (most stuff in USA comes from china anyways, pfft)

I care about price over anything else. Other than for groceries, I can't remember when was the last time I went into a brick and mortar store to buy something. I'd rather just order online. (Since I import stuff, sometimes I REALLY don't have a choice. Like Anime music CDs. I have to get those online. I can't just go to a local store to get it). For groceries, in many cases, it's cheaper to go to an actual store and get what you need yourself. I mean, yeah you can order even groceries now online, but you have to buy like 12 of them and/or pay for shipping, which defeats the purpose. (An online store that offers free shipping is MUCH more likely to get my business).

Yeah. Other than grocery shopping, I haven't gone to a brick and mortar to buy stuff in literally YEARS.

Recently bought a huge Hatsune Miku poster. Estimated date was a month but it took nearly 2 months to get here. Never again.

Depends for me. Usually, I buy digital which comes easier with online buying. If I am in a hurry I will search around. I recently passed on amazon's deal of 39.99 for Titan Fall, to buy it digitally for regular price.
