여러분, 안녕하세요? 오랜만이에요 Precious 입니다! Today, we are going to learn how to online shop on Korean websites where there is typically no English version of the page and we can only click on random buttons to guess what they mean. This is a non exhaustive list but it is more than enough to get you started!
Many Korean online shopping platforms are for registered members only, and require users to sign in to proceed with their shopping.

Hold on, how are you going to get your stuff delivered to you when you haven't add your 주소 - address?
If it is a 선물 - gift, you might want to indicate the 받으시는 분 - recipient.
There may be a text field for you to leave a message for the delivery personnel, such as instructions like "물건을 문 앞에 놓아주세요" [Please leave the package/items in front of the door].
