register to buy and THEN we'll let you buy from us.

Is it just me or does it irritate the corn out of anyone else that most horse sites require you to register before you can buy anything from them?

That means you have yet another password to keep up with and must log in forever after when you want them to honor you with the privilege of allowing you to buy something from them.

It bothers me so much that unless I really need the item I often just say forget it.

Am I just old and grouchy or does it bother anyone else?

Just DO it and be happy that you can!

Hmm. I shop a LOT, but have never had that one happen-only with real estate, and even then, I find another site. Last thing I want is to have another solicitor.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Same here I steer clear of those sites. Most sites now though have the option to checkout as a "guest" so you don't have to have yet another account. I usually go to this option unless it's a site I trust and shop at a lot, then I will make an account.

It takes a lot of time, especially if you're on your phone. I try to use the guest check out if they have it as an option. I generally use amazon, but with the given time of year, I always end up buying from one to two sites that I'll never use again and make sure to uncheck the box that permits sending me specials and deals through email.

Acorn, I think I know what you mean.
Last night I was trying to find Horsehoers Secret cheaper online(even with shipping) rather than buying it at Big R.
Plenty of sites don't have the "get a shipping estimate" button so you don't have to add it to your cart, fill out all the appropriate information and then find out afterwards that the shipping is $30 and you can find it cheaper elsewhere. Maybe I am doing it wrong

LOLLOL YES. Isn't that annoying. Maybe they are hoping that after you've gone to the trouble of setting up an account you'll just go ahead and pay whatever the shipping is.

Just DO it and be happy that you can!

Mozilla Firefox browser saves all your user names and passwords if you set it to do that. And you can always just have the same password/UN to an email you use only for such websites. Then, once every couple of months, if you didn't come up with a good PW, you change them to something new. Not too hard, that's what I do. I call one of my email addresses the spam/forum email.
