    Shipping cost. Makes me question whether what I'm buying is really worth the £3.99 shipping.

    I get charged way too much.

    I swear I only put one item in my basket and somehow it changes to twenty and charges me ~£80.

    I hate it when that happens.

    When the postage costs more than the item.

    Clothing and shoe sizes. Not knowing whether anything will fit.

    Not being around when the delivery actually arrives so the postman leaves that little note and you have to go to the postal collection place thing...
    Postmen make me sick.

    How after you've compulsively and excitedly filled up your basket, you have to actually pay for it to get it.

    For clothes, I want to know if they fit, so I'll only shop online for things if I'm sure of my size.

    For some other things, I only have a problem if the product description or specification isn't good. For example, sometimes for camera stuff and technology related things I need to know if something is compatible, and if the information is too brief then I might have doubts about it and decide to look at it in a store instead just to make sure. Usually the description/specification is fine though and I can order online with no problems.

    Has anyone else had it on Amazon where you can only order something if you order something else of at least a certain value? It seems to be a recent thing.

    And postage costs - once ordered something that was £9.99. If I'd ordered something that was £10, I would have paid no postage.
