    [QUOTE=adg211288]It's a fair question Ashley and one I've been asking myself as well. I've also purchased on ebay since the lockdown went into effect (one essential, the rest not) and have wondered if I shouldn't have done. It's early days for us all living in these conditions and some habits are hard to break, especially if others provide the means for you to buy something non-essential through ebay or other online outlet. Regarding the sellers themselves I'm working on the assumption that if they list it, they want someone to buy it and count taking it down the Post Office as work related travel, so whether you buy it or leave it for someone else is irrelevant, as you suggest yourself. The seller is the one who enables the sale. Ethically I'd say they are the one responsible for setting that wheel in motion. Personally I removed all my active listings from ebay before the full lockdown went into effect, because I wasn't willing to make those trips out. But there are extra precautions sellers can take on top of social distancing. Such as saving any sales for one trip a week. People will have to live with extra long dispatch and delivery times. That said I hope the cat food I've ordered arrives tomorrow. Because there's hardly any in the shops around here. It is worth pointing out that in any Post Office I've seen the staff are behind a window, which will help to protect them during this outbreak. The Royal Mail has also been saying all along that the virus does not survive for long on parcels and letters. And the Postie who ultimately delivers it will still have to take the same route that day and risk running into the same people. If you're only ordered a CD that will go through your letterbox, no human contact required. Ultimately until the Royal Mail asks us otherwise or the PM shuts it down, it's probably OK to buy whatever you want on ebay or other site. HMV, I know, are still trading online and they use the Royal Mail and obviously don't sell essentials. If they stop trading completely it's probably a sign that everyone should stop with such things. [/QUOTE] Thanks Adam, that does help. I'll keep an eye out for new annoucements. Might have to make the leap to full digital. That bothers no one else.

    An ethical question I'd like to bounce off you all. Many online businesses are still trading, including private sellers on ebay. The Royal Mail is still running albeit at a reduced capacity and has vowed to continue to do so. I buy things on ebay, Amazon and other sites quite regularly and did so this morning without even thinking about it. Habit. See a bargain, click buy before someone else gets it. I'm a very impulsive ebayer. Now I'm questioning whether buying something online in these times, except for essentials, is selfish (in this case it was a CD on ebay). Buying something online means someone has to leave their home and go to the Post Office. It means Royal Mail employees have to sort that package and deliver it. But on the flipside, both business and private sellers still trading might be relying on the money from sales for income. The Royal Mail also has to be paid. It keeps the economy moving in a small way. And our economy looks grim right now with so many high street businesses forced to close for public safety. There's also the fact that if something is available to buy, if you don't buy it, someone else will. Any guilt you may personally feel is shifted (perhaps to someone who won't even ask these questions), but the end result for the seller and the Royal Mail is the same. So nothing changes, except you personally lost out on something new to keep you entertained during lockdown. So my question is this, excluding essentials you may be able to order online (seems less likely with sites like ebay banning the sale of things like hand gel), will you continue to buy things online while they are available to be bought, or will you restrain yourself and make do with what you already have/streaming?

    [QUOTE=bartosso]I see you're talking about some health related issue? A virus, correct? [/QUOTE] Please tell me you're trying to (somehow) be funny and are not genuinely unaware of the worldwide pandemic currently happening that has infected almost 400000 people and claimed the lives of over 17000?
