    My friend asks me where did I get my hat. I say:

    Oh I purchased it off/from ebay.com.

    Is this correct?

    "I bought it on ebay."

    In that situation, I'd probably respond with "Oh, I got it off ebay."

    "On", "off" and "from" are all acceptable. I'd probably use "on".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I would use "on" also.
