Web Base Business banks vs High Street Banks

If i start by saying Avoid these web base banks then i will be saving your time reading entire article . However am not 100% against these web base or should i say app base Online Banks.

Here are some points you have to consider before joining or applying for an account with these web base banks.

  • First of all they are new in market and they have lacking in so many features compare to high street banks.
  • Charges are very high when it comes to international payment.
  • Forcing you to go by their rules when making some payments specially international payments.
  • VERY few flexibility option when it comes to financing options such as credit card or over draft.

GTA 6 – Grand Theft Auto 6 Release Date & Updates

There is a huge media debate on major media online protal about GRAND THEFT AUTO 6 Relase date and updates .
All major news Portals covering this news within their online news plat forms, What is reality and what is confirmed lets look in to this.

First of being a die hard fan of Grand Theft Auto i personally keep an eye on every news and update but so far their is nothing officialy confirmed by RockStar Games about GTA 6 Release.

Some media portals are claiming about games upcoming dates through verious assumptions, and famous once are Rockstar tax file confirms they are planning or working on new project, Some coming up hints and other ex emplyee leaks etc.

In my personal opinion there is no such thing of GTA6 100% on the day of writing this piece of information Jan 28,2020. Rockstar games clearly making enough from their 2013 project, Why would they ruin their years of work and make a new game. They have recenlty release Casion Heist update just before newyear and xmass.

facebook ads vs Google Shopping. NO REFUNDS

If you are a drop shipper and thinking of selling online via dropship method but you have been told Facebook is the best place to go for or start with. Then you should read this Entire Experience

facebook-ads

Facebook now has at least the day of this writing nearly 2 billion active users and there are nearly 8 billion people in the world. They had a recent boost to its usage but few controversies brought it in to news. Like mark Zuckerberg facing US senators and other privacy issues.

Like mark Zuckerberg facing US senators and other privacy issues.

Facebook promised to fix those and that build user`s trust and we now have more active users then ever. Study shows an average user spends nearly 20 minutes using Facebook.

So in this case Facebook ads can be the best choice to reach billions but keep in mind google dominates the search web. And search is where actual buyers are.

real case study

Now in this article i will be sharing a real life experience using both services. So as heading says we will discuss Facebook ads.

Facebook ads show you various options to target the audience . For selling online conversions or CATALOGUE sale will be the best options. Where facebook says you will be charged once some one actually buys your product meaning a conversion going to happend. BUT WAIT FOR IT there is a tiny writing says WHEN YOU ARE CHARGED = IMPRESSIONS

that is right they are not going to guarantee you conversion even you select a conversion campaign as you can see in image.

facebook conversions reality

So think 100 times before adding your daily budget. Here is our personal story . Facebook spend /day was £1000 with a bidding cap of £1/conversion .(image above is per registration ). Now facebook system improves our ad at 6:12 pm BST and 6:15 we pause the campaign, How much do you think cost would be ? Your guess in between this time would be 100£ or 200£ then you are wrong . IT cost us £759 for three minutes but cost per view which was at 1.47 per view. Remember our bidding cap was £1.

Now facebook quickly takes out 200+ from card and wait for the rest to settle down. It settled at 759 after 24hrs as even after pausing the campaign it kept going.

Facebook customer service.

Now here comes the actual part, There is no phone customer service just live chat (as far as we know) . They can ring you if you provide a contact number to help you optimise your campaign. This optimisation help is same as some binary option aka gambling site broker wants you to spend more money on their platform. You have a facebook refund request form . But that will be rejected straight way as you get an automated response.

In our case dispute was closed and then upon reopening we had email help. Which is not help aswell. we have been told since your daily spend was 1000/day, system tried its best to keep cost per view near to bidding cap . However ads been served you have to pay. Second question was regarding its a conversion campaign but you have charged us based on impressions. Answer was we cannot guarantee you conversions but system delivered your ad now. BOTH questions blamed on system and you have to make a payment even you haven’t done a single sale. MAIN ARGUMENT STAYED WHEN A AD IS COST PER CONVERSION WHY GETTING CHARGED FOR IMPRESSIONS OR PER VIEW AND WHEN BIDDING CAP IS 1 WHY WE HAVE BEEN CHARGED 1.47/ VIEW.

Now we have read somewhere that this kind of charges are refundable. BUT NO LUCK . Here ends the Facebook ads experience to sell online or to do drop ship.

Google shopping ads

Google shopping ads are the one of the best choice if you are selling online. As long as you have SKU or EAN numbers they will show your product to millions , THERE IS NO CHARGE ON IMPRESSION ITS COST PER CLICK. User will be coming to your site, Now its all going to depend on your landing page or website impression to turn it to a customer.

Google shopping ads experience

We are using google shopping ads for us and for our online marketing clients. So far its a unique and successful experience . Because of our Facebook experience we are guaranteeing google ads for drop shipping or selling online .

ebay forcing sellers to pay return shipping ?

eBay forcing sellers to pay return shipping ? The answer will be a YES & No. If you are a seller on eBay then you must get annoyed when eBay decides to accept a return in your behalf and ask you as a seller to recover return shipping charge. Even though Every seller clearly indicates buyer pays return shipping.

Some time it feels unfair when you done your job right . Pack the goods well, Deliver them on time, & for no reasons buyer decides to open a return request by misusing ebay`s return policy. Because they know if they open a dispute that they now have changed their mind about their purchase, they have to pay return shipping cost. eBay also helps them by displaying this message.

Now it looks like this is ebay`s own made rule, Because when a seller clearly indicates that return accepted within 15, 30 or 60 days and buyer pays return shipping, Then why ebay `s even asking to sellers to cover the cost?

Also EU and UK trading standard law clearly says its buyers responsibility to return the item as they received for a refund. And this is the practice all the major online selling non ebay brands follow. so it comes to very clear that its ebay`s own bully rule.

ebay  also has a problem of customer service. Each time you are going to ring for a solution their customer service representative will be located in different part of the world. Each time he or she will be making a decision on their personal opinion. They either dont know or do not wish to know what ebay rule says about this .
