Tupperware type parties promote e-shopping
Does this method make it easier for newbies to get comfortable with e-commerice? Will the dot.coms go for this method along with other advertising methods?

"You had better not wait too long, because you can't go three or four days without toilet paper." I can't believe I read that whole article.

Me too, Doug. Here they are looking for toilet paper but talking about bounty. I'm so confused : P

I can see it now... inviting 10 of my closest friends over to eat cake and put their grubby paws all over my computer while a poofily coiffed expert tries to get them to hand over their credit cards and buy briefs over the net. She gets 2.50 a pop and I get a coupon to track all my future purchases? Where do I sign up?

Sure there are still lots of people who don't feel comfortable shopping online but they're certainly not going to like getting their feet wet buying basics. Online shopping (for many of us) is for getting things you can't just run uptown to pick up... and then finding the best price for the item. Consumers know what everyday things cost and the cutest Fed Ex man in the world isn't going to make them pay too much for staples.
