The one that’s annoying to work with anyway. Instead..!

You can make school a whole lot easier and learn faster with an online tutor.

It’s possible with JustAnswer which in my experience provides a clear approach to all aspects os study problems from high school to college. And it’s all online.

I think it works for whatever you are studying, for homework or to prepare you for an exam on algebra, pre algebra, calculus, pre calculus, linear algebra, etc.

Update September, 2020;

Due tu numerous complaints about Chegg and their questionable business practises, I can no longer recommend the service for help on maths or tutoring of any kind.

David Elfering <![CDATA[Best TGV Child Tickets Price: Cheap Kids Seat for a Few Euro Fare!]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=6366 2020-08-20T04:53:18Z 2020-08-19T12:00:49Z Traveling on TGV trains with children in France is fun and convenient, as well as affordable — here’s how to get the incredibly low child fare ticket price!

TGV Child Tickets

I was recently traveling from Paris to Nice with the family, and tried a handful of booking sites in English looking for the best ticket price.

To my surprise I found out that my youngest children could travel with their own seat, just 9 euros each for a 1000km trip! Or even less for shorter distances.

And booked early, also adult and youth tickets were affordable. Being tired of air-travel, I was delighted that travel was cheaper by high speed trains in France!

The special child fare is only available on the “Trainline” ticket retailer.

Here’s how to grab your cheap TGV seats for your kids!

Trainline TGV Booking Search

Navigate to Trainline, and make sure you are on the EU version of the website. You are immediately presented with a search for trains throughout Europe.

Enter origin, destination, date and all passengers with their age. The form will automatically search for the cheapest possible tickets for both 2nd & 1st class.

TGV Child Price

You will be presented with a list of all TGV trains running on that date, and the total price with taxes and all other charges included.

Choose between tickets from Cheapest, to Semi-flex and Flexible. Or sort search results with the fastest train routes only, without changes if possible.

Also, you can select if you need booth seating (highly recommended for families), or first floor or second floor with better views (latter up to preference).

Note the “Passengers” section to see which tickets you are valid for. If you see “Fortfait Bambin”, congratulations. It’s the cheapest TGV seat fare possible!

TGV Child Ticket Pricing

Here is the price of tickets depending on their age;

TGV Toddler Ticket Fare;

Children and babies, under 4 years old who do not require a seat can travel free on all TGV trains in France. If they require a seat, you are valid for the “Bambin” or toddler ticket price, which is a formal payment of a few euros.

On top, the ticket is valid for a refund if canceled before the train departs, or can be changed to another date without any additional cost.

TGV Child Ticket Fare;

Children under 12 years old are valid for the “Enfant” or child fare. The cost of these tickets is usually half price from the regular adult fare.

Please note, price also varies depending on the TGV train and booked date.

Thumb rule is, the earlier you book the cheaper.

All in all, Trainline is a train booking website I can highly recommend for affordable travel within Europe and France;

  • There are no booking fees and hidden costs
  • The price is the same as booked directly with carrier, Trainline doesn’t add anything to the ticket fare.

Good luck finding the best fares for your family!

Any questions about train and TGV travel in France?
Or what’s your experience with child tickets, give us a comment!

Finally, not all but some of the articles I wrote on my blog contain links that are affiliated with companies that they link to. This is to support the blog and won’t affect the price of any such services. Much thanks for your voluntary support.

And for having a read! Hope this was helpful. David.

Unless it’s an issue that’s already covered by their “help center”, I’ve found it very hard to email or contact a real human being on the other end.

In this post I’ll explain how to get in touch with real Instagram support.

Hope this helps others as much as it has helped others.

Instagram Customer Support

How to get better Instagram Support?

They are a big company, optimizing profits and that includes the way they handle support by mainly dealing with common issues that people have.

This can be completely useless if you need personalized support.

I’ve found out that you can actually reach a real human being and an expert on all Instagram issues by skipping their mediocre “help center” all together.

You can “go to this link” to ask your question through Justanswer.

No significant waiting times and a person who looks at your specific issue, giving solutions to it without capped answers or placing you in to a ‘optimized support funnel’.

It’s like a breath of fresh air really and an instant help with your frustration.

Note that if you are having some super common and minor problem, you may try to find answers from the official Instagram help center route. But if your issue allows to contact them, don’t expect an answer anytime soon.

What’s the issue with Instagram customer care?

To elaborate on the issues with Instagram’s support, it’s actually common practice for many social networks and big companies with huge user numbers.

But Instagram takes the longest straw with the way they have “optimized” their profits and the way that they give and do not give out support for their “free” users.

Fact is that they are making a huge amount of money out of their users and could be able to provide better, more humanlike and non-robotic support if they wanted to.

But it’s about profit and while you’ll likely have a good experience until something goes wrong, they seem to be big enough to leave out those that are really in need of help.

While other platforms make it just difficult to find the button for filling out an email, Instagram only allows sending of messages at their Help Center for specific problems. Ones that they deem justified for contacting support in person, and even them response times are not that great and answers are mostly capped in my experience so far.

So instead of being able to contact mediocre support, some are left with the option of no support at all. Expect for the best customer care alternative outline above.

I’d love to hear your experience with Instagram Support?
Please, share us your thoughts below.

Best of luck getting help or just ask me if nothing else works, David.

David Elfering <![CDATA[Is there eBay in Chile? Guide to Chilean eBay Site & Global Shipping]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=7290 2020-08-20T04:50:07Z 2020-08-15T12:00:06Z This is my how to guide on the Chilean version of eBay in English & Spanish, buying, shipping, in Santiago and the rest of the country. For quick access click below.

Click here for eBay Chile site in English & Spanish

eBay in Chile

Access both English & Spanish versions of eBay for Chileans with this link — except that Spanish is only available if you are physically located in South America.

To change between languages follow these steps;

Step 1. Find the “globe icon” at the top menu.

Step 2. Click where it says, “Español” or “English”.

Step 3. Language menu will appear for changing locale.

How eBay works in Chile

To search for and buy items with global shipping, delivery to Chile,please follow these simple instructions to get online shopping at eBay working for you.

Buying directly from Chilean eBay sellers;

Not many know this, but there are quite a few eBay sellers that are located within Chile, for cheap shipping of course. Here’s how to check availability.

Step 1. Click here for advanced search on eBay in Chile.

Step 2. Navigate down on that page until “Location” section.

Step 3. In “Location in” choose country as Chile.

Step 4. Search for items amongst local sellers.

Buying from eBay sellers in other regions;

There are other settings too for narrowing down your search. For example, shopping amongst Asian sellers you get competitive pricing in both products and shipping too. Or you can select a range in Kilometers as to which area to cover in your search.

But ultimately, eBay is a global marketplace and works great for Chileans and other South American who wish to access the international market.

Selling to Chilean buyers on eBay;

Also eBay is being used by international sellers themselves, wishing to provide access to their products for buyers in Chile, with a convenient English interface.

You can read more about their extensive global shipping program for shipping methods as well as business to consumer solutions to Chile.

eBay Chile in English and Spanish

The way the site works, is that it detects your location depending on the internet connection you are using. And the Spanish language option is only served to those who are located in a Spanish speaking region, such as the Latin America.

This is also the way it directly attempts to calculate shipping costs. If outside of the country, you can however separately set your country in the settings.

There is simply no other way around this restriction. So if you are located in the USA for example, you are stuck with English only.

You can however, use the site to order to Chile even when located in another country. Items can be delivered to cities like Santiago, Puente Alto, Antofagasta, Viña del Mar, Valparaíso, Talcahuano, San Bernardo, Temuco, Iquique, Concepción, Rancagua, La Pintana and elsewhere of course.

I hope that answered the question; “is there ebay in Chile?”
All kinds of questions and comments on e-commerce welcome!

Thank you for visiting and reading, David.

Please kindly note, the way this blog keeps running and evolving is through affiliate links which are occasionally placed within content. This won’t cost you anything additional and helps me really a lot. Huge thanks for that.

David Elfering <![CDATA[Stream of Perfect Reviews — The Key to Success & Profits on Fiverr]]> http://www.elftronix.com/?p=1355 2020-08-20T04:48:04Z 2020-08-13T12:00:37Z From the many factors for creating a successful Fiverr gig, the one that really keeps you afloat is a method of getting lots of good reviews.. right?

Success on Fiverr

With a significant amount of positive reviews, you can outmatch your competition, rank higher in search results, attract orders and profit. But Fiverr is built so that even one negative review can have a significant impact on your chances of success.

Fiverr leans heavily towards those who can prove exeptional service through a perfect stream of 100% positive reviews. Giving you advantage over others and an opportunity to grow into a successfull seller.

But that first negative review, is waiting for you. Someone who thinks that your service could have been even a little better. And if you think, that giving the best service possible is enough. Think again!

When I start a new gig, I ask myself what are the possible scenarios for someone giving me anything less than 100%. It’s a learning process, but there is no room for mistake when you are starting and need get noticed.

Customers who are completely unsatisfied with your work can actually be a less of a problem, because most likely they want their money back. Thus having no way to leave a review of your service. It is the almost satisfied that are the most tricky.

A commonly used practice by serious sellers, is to remind customers not to review until the order has been modified to absolutely satisfaction. Only the problem is that reasons for being unsatisfied might have nothing to do with you. Perhaps it was the nature of their request that was destined not to bring amazing results.

That is why my personal key to success has been, that from the very beginning of the order, if there is any reason to suspect, due to the nature of the customers wishes, that they will not be absolutely thrilled from the result.

Just press that cancel button!

Some jobs might be easy, but they might not always be as rewarding for the customer. So better just carefully build a good stream of perfect reviews, until one day.. one negative review is just a drop in the ocean.

I listen to my senses, and don’t hesitate to cancel the gig whenever I feel like it. And it has brought success and profits so far.

That is, unless your question is something that can be found ready written from their FAQ and help sections. But what if you need an actual human behing?

Based on my experience I wouldn’t even bother to email them.

In today’s post I’m sharing how I got REAL customer support for Snapchat, where someone actually looked into and helped to solve my problem without capped answers.

Real Snapchat Support

Better alternative to Snapchat support?

You can go ahead and try out Justanswer “with this link“.

By using this alternative method, you can get a hold of experts within minutes that are there not just for a one time question but whenever you need help with Snapchat.

It works because they are not taking commands ‘from above’ and actually know their sh*t, using their time to help you out one-to-one to get things solved.

At least it has for me and hope it can others too.

What’s the problem with Snapchat customer care?

It doesn’t come as a surprise that most big companies, including Snapchat likes to not just optimize support but also to optimize their profits.

It’s wrong to think that if they are giving you a free service, you can’t expect them to provide personalized or better quality support.

Reality is, that they are getting rich from your use of their software and they have all the capacity to provide high quality support which they choose not to.

And while users vote with where their register to, it’s a fact that everyone’s doing it. So you kind of just have to find your way around these things.

I’m not saying that you are not able to get any help from them either, I’m just saying that it’s slow.. bothersome with all the capped answers you need to go through before getting answers. And even then, it’s a big maybe..

You’ll have no idea if you get your issue solved or not.

That’s what led me to look into alternatives and at least they exist.

What you choose to support and how you choose to support it is up to you, but customer care with Snapchat is mediocre which is not just my opinion but of many others.

If you are still willing to try out the official support team by open an email ticket with them in hopes of getting the answer you need;

  1. Go to their home page
  2. Click on “Support” under community
  3. Search through questions and select “My Snapchat isn’t working”
  4. Under “Oh no! What isn’t working?” select “Other”
  5. In ‘Need help with something else?” select “Yes”
  6. Then select “My issue is not listed”
  7. Congratulations you have found the contact form!

Fill it out and… fingers crossed!

Would love to hear your take on Snapchat support?
Brief us with your experience below.

Best Equivalent Polish Site]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=6530 2020-08-19T06:06:26Z 2020-08-09T12:00:56Z Shopping on the Polish eBay is convenient for finding items located in Poland and globally with shipping to Poland. Now in 2020, available in English.

Click here for eBay site in Poland in English

eBay Poland

The site eBay.pl is aimed at Polish users only. Those who need an English interface for shopping in the country, use — the international version of eBay.

Nearly all Polish sellers on eBay.pl are available on both site versions! So without further ado, here’s my guide on shopping, and auctioning in Poland;

How eBay works in Poland

If you simply want to use the global marketplace, to search for items anywhere in the world with support for shipping to Poland. Just use the global eBay, which automatically detects your location and even calculates sending costs.

However, there are methods for a more localized experience;

Shopping from eBay sellers in Poland;

For the cheapest, and fastest shipping. You might want to check if the product you are looking for is available directly in Poland;

Step 1. Open this link for English eBay in Poland

Step 2. At the top, look for the “Advanced” link next to Search button.

Step 3. Scroll down on that page until the “Location” options.

Step 4. Choose “Poland” from the list of countries.

Now all your searched are narrowed down to Polish sellers.

Shopping from eBay sellers in Europe;

You can find more extensive range, and competitive pricing from Europe. Especially since goods from the EU are exempt from customs duties;

Step 1. Open this link for English eBay in Poland

Step 2. First do your search as you usually would.

Step 3. Towards the bottom left of the window, you’ll find a quick selection menu for your shopping region. Select Europe and you are good to go.

Selling to Polish buyers through eBay;

Undoubtedly, eBay is the best way to sell and auction items in English to Polish consumers. Check out the Global Shipping Program for more.

Basically you can be located anywhere in the world, and have a huge global seller market in your hands, taking your business to Poland, Europe and beyond.

Including access to the eBay.pl equivalent site.

eBay Poland in English & Polish Equivalent

There are two main version of the website, mainly in use by eBay users that are located in Poland or shopping to Poland from elsewhere;

The native Polish version at eBay.pl, which is mostly the same as the main site, except that the language of the website is in Polish only. It’s the best equivalent.

The global version of eBay at eBay.com, which is in English only and servers all the features you would have on the Polish equivalent.

While eBay.pl would offer you Polish shipping and calculate sending accordingly as default, on eBay.com it will detect your location based on the IP address of your internet connection. However, you can also change the location later to Poland even if you are located outside of the country or elsewhere in Europe.

And that’s the end of my quick guide on Polish online shopping.

I welcome questions and comments on eBay in Poland.
And let me know what you consider the best equivalent or similar site.

To all my readers, thanks for popping by and your potentially voluntary support by clicking on any of the affiliate links, scattered around the blog. Your visit means a lot to me. My biggest, most sincere thank you! David.

There is no way to to unblur the answers without paying for it, and any such claims are scam. However, I think there’s a better alternative.

I’ll explain my suggestion and reasons below.

Chegg Alternative

The issue I have with Chegg?

It’s because with Chegg Study you are just paying for the answers, which in my opinion is not very good value for your money.

They say that you get not just the solutions but also you see the steps to finding them out and that’s true to an extent for the Textbook Solutions.

That is not true for the Expert Q&A however.

I know a lot of people including myself just got the answers in hopes of trying to understand the problems, so as not to fail exams or flunk class. For some you’re not willing to pay anything though, and others think “hey it’s just $14.95 per month and it’s the best solution I can think of right now”.

But I haven’t found out the Chegg method to be the best option.

And having the “steps” to the solutions isn’t so great either.

So what’s the alternative?

You can “use this link” to try out JustAnswer.

It’s like having an expert sit next to you and walk you through your homework, to write your essay, or anything really.

This way, you’ll get the explanation to the answers you need until you truly understand them and thus learn from them (not cheating).

Having this available for unlimited use, 24/7 has for me turned out to be a lot better investment into my schooling.

For those thinking of an alternative that’s hopefully better, I think they are definitely worth a try. At least in my experience.

But how do you see the answers on Chegg?

Pay for membership.

You have to remember that Chegg is a very big company, investing huge amounts of money into online security. Making sure that there is no 100% working (I’ve seen these claims around the internet), or neither 42% working method of accessing the blurred, paid content without paying anything.

Trust me, I’ve even tried a few of the scams out there.

They just don’t work.

What’s your take on the best Chegg alternatives?
Please, share your thoughts below.

And best of luck with you studies! David.

David Elfering <![CDATA[RunCloud Tip! How to Configure X-Frame-Options => SAMEORIGIN]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=6985 2020-08-16T08:48:11Z 2020-08-05T12:00:55Z Here’s the right way to configure, enable/disable “X-Frame-Options => SAMEORIGIN” and other server hardening headers on RunCloud — hope this helps.

RunCloud SAMEORIGIN

RunCloud.io — the SaaS based PHP cloud server and web hosting control panel has automated certain server hardening techniques.

In this case, enabled the “X-Frame-Options => SAMEORIGIN” header by default. Which prevents clickjacking attacks, or placing websites and their content within iframes, from a domain with a different origin than the iframe itself.

You can easily disable this in the RunCloud server manager;

RunCloud Clickjacking Protection

Navigate to your server, and the web application of your choice.

Simply uncheck the “Clickjacking Protection” button under “Settings”.

This is how the headers changed for me.

With “Clickjacking Protection” enabled;

HTTP/1.1 200 OK =>
Server => nginx-rc
Date => Wed, 11 Jul 2018 14:37:51 GMT
Content-Type => text/html; charset=utf-8

Last-Modified => Wed, 11 Jul 2018 14:37:07 GMT
X-XSS-Protection => 1; mode=block

And that’s it. No need to configure anything manually as usual.

David Elfering <![CDATA[WWE Network Review: Subscription Really Worth It or Not?]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=9687 2020-08-07T09:17:13Z 2020-08-03T12:00:51Z While there’s no definite answer to if WWE Network is worth it or not, here are objective reviews and opinions of WWE and their online streaming service.

Although ultimately the best way to find out is to “open a free account here“.

These will be worth a read though!

WWE Network

WWE Network is an OTT streaming service owned by WWE launched in 2014. It consists of a 24-hour streaming channel as well as on-demand programming.

Here’s some valuable opinions on the pros and cons!

Have been a Pro Wrestling fan since the 1950’s, so I have seen most of the old timers all the way to today’s WWE and AEW superstars. I have NEVER bought a PPV because of the ridiculous costs! WWE Network seems like a logical step; the audition subscription looks like a great idea. I have seen clips from things like Ride Along that are side breaking funny, so I might try to do it. — Norm

Got the Channel and use it mostly watching non televised events like 205 live, NXT & NXT UK as well as the PPVs. (Mostly because I have to work on those days.) My only drawback if the it doesn’t cycle from program to program according to what is on their schedule of programing. If I’m watching 3 weeks worth of 205 (because I had to work OT for two weeks,) it will go from the 1st week to the 2nd to the 3rd easily with no problem. But I’m watching NXT “live” on a Wednesday it won’t go to the program that is scheduled to show next. All in all not a bad deal for 10.00 bucks a month. — Wanda

One big drawback. We cannot access Raw and Smackdown shows on wwe network up until 2 to 3 weeks. — Ali

Ok so I’ve been a HARDCORE wrestling fan my whole life, 40 years. That being said, the network is great. I watch it almost everyday and if only for PPV and NXT it’s worth it. No more 30$ 50$ a month crap. That alone will keep WWE on top. AEW or anyone will have their work cut out for them to compete with it. I wanted to order double or nothing but when I saw 50$ I just waited a week and watched it online free. I’ll never go back to that again and no one loves wrestling more than I do. — Steven

Just not that big of a fan any more. The shows just really aren’t that good any more. They have piss poor story lines. They hardly ever let talent thrive. What ever happened to doing great interviews? Like Mean Gene Oakerland. They rarely let talent expand on thier talent or their story lines. They do not give them any kind of story control. It is so scripted, and it shows. You know like Rick Flair was heel his entire career. And people loved it. Sting was always the good guy. Harely Race, Jerry the King Lawler, Jimmy Snooka, Bret Hart, Owne Hart, the Von Eric’s, the Freebirds, the Steiner’s, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Jake the Snake Roberts, Shawn Michael’s, Triple H, Steve Austin, and the list goes on. Those were GREAT talents. What happened was Vince just gobbled up ALL the competition. That stifled growth. Then he took away any creative control away from the wrestlers themselves. Now wrestlers really have nowhere to go other than to WWE to make any money, for them to grow creatively. Vin McMahon has stifled and ruined the industry. He’s a brilliant businessman, do doubt about that. He just became to greedy. And it shows. Yes, ratings are still pretty good, but for how much longer. What the industry needs is for Vince to let other Wrestling companies thrive. To help drive creativity. Give his own roster some room to thrive on their own. Let them have much more say in thier characters and their stories. Bring back great announcers. Man do I miss folks like JR. Bring back some great ring announcers and interviewers like Mean Gene. I grew up watching wrestling on a local level. There were so many wrestling companies out there. They had a local wrestling companies like World Class Championship Wrestling. That was my local one. Where wrestlers started out and built thier characters. Then they went on to larger companies, which was fine because they always had more wrestlers waiting in the wings. Or they just stayed local/regional. My suggestion is that Vince stops stifling other companies and let them flourish. Because in doing the competition will grow creativity and greater and larger talent. Just the two cents from a guy who has gotten fed up WWE. — Martin

I have it and enjoy watching the AWA & all the other old wrestling companies I remember! That alone is worth the cost! — Brian

It’s worth it,if you like wrestling. It not just pay-per-views, they have shows and specials about old and current wrestlers. — Nathan

Yeah totally find it worth it. PPV alone makes it worth it but if you’re at all into wwe behind the scenes content there’s some really good stuff on there. — Jeff

Not really, I had it for 3 years and was disappointed everytime a ppv came on the screen would freeze and I’d have to start it again. All because one of those clowns forgot the script. — Darrell

It’s worth it for the libraries alone! Mid Atlantic, Mid South, World Class! — Kevin

I agree totally worth it — Adam

David Elfering <![CDATA[Pakistani eBay Website! Shipping, Payments & Using eBay in Pakistan]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=7294 2020-08-07T03:01:13Z 2020-08-01T12:00:26Z In this online shopping guide, I’ve put together up to date info on using eBay in Pakistan. How to buy items, shipping & delivery to Islamabad and elsewhere, etc.

Click here for Pakistani eBay Official Website

eBay in Pakistan

To sign up, use and make purchases from eBay in Pakistan, “eBay global” is the official website meant for online shopping use by Pakistani customers.

Now in 2020, payment difficulties are a thing of the past and products are widely shipped to Karachi, Lahore, Faisalabad, Rawalpindi, Gujranwala, etc.

As a result the marketplace is popular with little need for alternatives.

How eBay works in Pakistan

There are several options for searching for items, comparing pricing amongst sellers in different regions, payments and shipping. Here are some tips.

Buying from Pakistani eBay sellers;

Nowadays, there are many sellers on eBay that are based in Pakistan. This is how to search amongst them, for potentially cheap shipping costs.

Step 1. Open this link for the advanced search on Pakistan eBay.

Step 2. Go down on that page, until the “Located in” section.

Step 3. Choose “Pakistan” from the available list of countries.

Step 4. Your search will be narrowed down to Pakistani sellers!

Buying from Asia & other regions;

Another popular method of finding great deals on eBay is to search amongst Asian sellers, which often offer affordable shipping methods and avoid import taxes.

Step 1. Click here for the international eBay in Pakistan.

Step 2. Search normally for the product or item of your choice.

Step 3. Check the menu on your left, where it says “Item Location” to switch results to Asia only, or other regions as desired.

PayPal support and payments on eBay;

As PayPal does not work for Pakistani residents, users are left with the option of using international credit and debit cards. The ones supported by eBay are, Visa, Mastercard, Discover as well as American Express.

Luckily, nowadays many banks in Pakistan offer so called virtual credit cards, or regular debit cards which are much easier to obtain. Namely Faysal Bank’s “Mobit Virtual Card” or UBL’s Wiz Virtual Card and others.

Please note! There is no easy way to pay with a regular bank account, if you wish to connect it with a payment portal such as PayPal, Payoneer, Skrill, etc.

Delivery & shipping support to Pakistan;

Also shipping is widely available to Pakistan, and what eBay does is it detects your country location automatically and calculates delivery costs accordingly.

The eBay marketplace is known for successful courier and regular postal service shipping to Pakistani cities such as Quetta, Islamabad, Hyderabad, Multan, Peshawar, Gujranwala, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Lahore and Karachi.

If location is detected incorrectly, or you want to make purchases to Pakistan without being physically located there. Change country settings for your account.

Tips for selling on eBay marketplace;

The site is a popular way to sell globally, and they have a global shipping program to access most corners of the world with your products.

Also it works the other way around, so that international sellers are using eBay to penetrate the market in Pakistan, with a familiar English language interface.

Online Shopping & auctioning alternatives in Pakistan;

Although no equivalent alternative to eBay exists in Pakistan, there are several e-commerce websites worth having a look at. The popular ones are;

OLX Pakistan

OLX Pakistan

This is a somewhat known classified ads site, with basic features. It’s very basic and has no bidding features so you need to contact sellers directly.

ShopHive

ShopHive

This is the very first e-commerce store in Pakistan, and has been around since 2005. Selling mostly household and electronic devices. Website is old.

HomeShopping

HomeShopping

An attempt for an improved version of ShopHive, with also mostly electronics for sell. They claim to be amongst the largest e-commerce sites in the country.

Offer Lagao

Offer Lagao

This is perhaps the most similar site and best attempt for an alternative eBay in Pakistan. They have actual bidding on the site, but there is little consumer protection.

And that’s the end of my how to guide to eBay in Pakistan.

Any questions about using, payments, shipping, etc..?
Comments and suggestions for eBay alternatives, welcome!

Or you may use the eBay contact number to get in touch with them directly.

David Elfering <![CDATA[Guide! Best Ways to Circumvent & Unblock Geo Restrictions of Sites]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=5343 2020-08-07T02:59:34Z 2020-07-30T12:00:03Z I wrote this practical, easy guide for those, like myself, who need to access and unblock sites from abroad, that have geographical restrictions.

Here’s some clarification to the multitudes of geo-block circumvention.

Circumvent Geo Restrictions

Basically there are two, quite different cases of use with different solutions.

Circumventing geo restrictions of (1) live TV channels, and other video streaming sites (2) other services, and sites like Facebook, Youtube, Google, etc.

Here’s a brief explanation of both with recommendations below!

Unblocking channels & streaming

The most common reason for sites to block visitors by their geolocation, is that they provide streaming of movies, tv programs and other licensed video or music material, which is restricted to a specific country according to their license.

Such as Netflix, Hulu, BBC, Amazon Prime, etc.

For this, the most reliable and affordable method, is to use so called “Smart DNS” providers, which simply put, unblock these kinds of sites from wherever you are without slowing down your connection. Neat!

Unblocking all sites & services

There are other types of sites, and services that you can also get geolocked from, when traveling in a foreign country for example. Usually, they simply require your internet connection to be located in a specific country location.

For this, the best way is to use a “VPN” provider (meaning Virtual Private Network), which can route your internet traffic through the country of your choice. Therefore, it will make it look like you are located in that country, even if you are not.

This method is also the easiest to set up, and some VPNs also work with TV channels and video streaming sites (most VPNs have poor support).

Recommended Smart DNS and VPN

I recommend ExpressVPN, considering the needs to circumvent geo restrictions.

They cover pretty much all the requirements;

  • High speed servers for fast video streaming and browsing
  • Supports an impressive 94 country locations
  • Officially supports unblocking of Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and many other TV channels and live video streaming websites
  • Supports all operating system and devices
  • Easy one-click software for connecting to VPN

But if you are willing to get through the learning curve, and use circumvention for streaming, I encourage having a go at Smart DNS services.

While I highly recommend SmartyDNS as it is the easiest to use, which is the best one for your purpose depends on what channels you want to unlock.

Each Smart DNS provider has a different list of supported channels, and you need to go through each one to confirm compatibility. If you cannot find what you are looking for, the option you are always left with is using a VPN connection.

Here are Smart DNS providers considered amongst the best;

Don’t get geolocked or geoblocked!
Happy live TV streaming and unlocking geo restrictions!

Here are examples, of the many, many supported channels you can expect to unblock with the cheaper Smart DNS services;

National Geographic Channel, Oprah, Sveriges Radio, Pandora, TV10 Play, Animal Planet, BBC iPlayer, FandangoNOW, Livestream, Amazon Prime, TVNOW, SiriusXM, iHeart Radio, Epix HD, Comedy Network, Digiturk Play, TV6, HBO GO, DittoTV, Disney Life, TBS, AFL AU, Canal Play, MTV, SwagBucks, Shudder, Ondemand Korea, ABC iView, NCAA, MediaSet, 4Music, Masters, Global TV, ZDF TiVi, PGA, Viaplay DK, rTVe, ESPN UK, AOL On, SportsNet, NFL Game Pass, CWTV, Lifetime, V8 Super Cars, CBC, PLUTO TV, FoodNetwork, NFL Now, D-Smart Blu, ABC, Simpsons World, RSI, TV4 Play, MySqueezeBox, Professional Darts Corporation, A&E TV, HGTV, Animal Planet GO, Rdio, LightBox, VH1, 3sat, Tennis Channel, BluTV, VOOT, Cricket Gateway, Sports Canada TV, Golf Channel, BBC Sport, Stofa, FOX SPORTS GO, France TV 1,2,3,4,5 & Pluzz, Blinkbox, Nickelodeon, NBA, 3DGO, Videoload, DMAX, BeIN Sports AU, ESPN, OSN, Stan AU, TV4 Play, Crackle, NFL GameRewind, Dplay, Eurosport ES, UFC, The Daily Show, Smithsonian Channel, Crunchyroll, FOX News, NBC Sports Live Extra, SyFy HD, USA NOW AppleTV, Comedy Central, TV Catchup, Zuus, WWE Network, AMC, Hulu, Aftonbladet, MSNBC, History, Eonline, DR, National Lottery, Blockbuster On Demand, Amazon Prime Germany, ZeeTV, 4oD, TV8 Play, FX Networks NOW, 6play, SkyGO NZ, CNBC, ESPN GO US, 6Play, MLS Soccer, TV Spielfilm, Yomvi Plus, TV2, Star Sports, MBC, RTR, DIY Network, PBS Kids, FOXTEL, Fox Sports, Sky Go, FOX Soccer2GO, Alarabiya, Mubi, MGO, BYUtv, Premier League Pass, Canal Digital, cwseed, NHL GameCenter, ServusTV, Cinema Now, MyCanal, BeIN Sports Connect, Ard Mediathek, HBO NOW, Sundance Now, FX Networks, TF1, TV3 Ireland, TLC GO, South Park Studios, Funimation, Tata Sky, Big Bash, TV3 SPORT, SBS, beIN CONNECT ES, Netflix, Zattoo, Now TV, Sling, Viaplay SE, SRF, TVPlayer, Shomi, Total Channel, Drama Fever, TNT Drama, Cooking Channel, Zee Family, Disney XD, Mitele, CNN GO, Travel Channel, iBox Live, PBS, History Canada, Swiss INFO, AbsoluteRadio, Fox, Logo TV, beIN Sports Connect, Itv, ProSieben, MagineTV, EuroSports Player UK, RTLnow, Tvyo, HGTV, Viaplay NO, Maxdome, RTS, Canal Plus, HBO Nordic, TV3 Play, Ulive, Fandor, Planet Rock, Tastemade, Science Channel GO, SHOWCASE Canada, Last.fm, SimpleStream, 9Now, Bravo, DPlay Kanal 5, SVT Play, Turntable, Sprout Now, Yahoo Screen, RAI, xFinity, Channel4, AnimeLab, US Open, Spotify, Vudu, Beats Music, YuppTV, Tidal, Warner Bros.

David Elfering <![CDATA[Stadium Goods Review: Is There a Scam or Are They Really Legit?]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=9676 2020-08-07T02:56:46Z 2020-07-28T12:00:11Z In this review, I’ll be looking at some of the claims that they are scam and if they really hold water or not about the premium sneaker and streetwear online store.

Your definite guide to if Stadium Goods is legit or not.

Stadium Goods

The reason I shop for streetwear at Stadium Goods is fairly simple;

  • (1) I can get high quality but low priced sneakers
  • (2) I have all the sneakers I ever need in one store.

Price is obviously an important factor for many shoppers, I mean have you “looked at this page” of special offers on Sneakers you can’t get anywhere else.

Sometimes it’s a bit too good to be true, right?

Understandable there are a lot of fakes out there, so questioning the legitimacy Stadium Goods sounds like a good thing to do.

After all, once you find an online store you can trust it’s easy to to your sneaker shopping there from thereafter. Which has been the case for me with SG.

Looking at some of the online reviews however, it can be more than confusing with so much positive and negative feedback. Which is why first and foremost your own experience is the most valuable. Because they are a marketplace where individual consignors own the sneakers and not Stadium Goods, they don’t have a clearcut money back guarantee. Instead, you can send your unused sneakers back within 3 days and get 90% of the amount spent as store credit for your next purchase.

But thanks to this consignment arrangement, if you have bad luck with one seller the odds are that you’ll have much better success with another seller.

Before shoes are accepted to be sold at Stadium Goods, they are subject to their conditional requirements. Sometimes a seller doesn’t even know that the shoes they send are fake but quality control is designed to catch sneakers that aren’t authentic. It’s not 100% but they are doing their best at it.

After all they would be pretty soon out of business if they were selling fake sneakers.

I can guarantee from my experience and knowledge, that their intentions are 100% legit and there is definitely no elaborate ‘scam’ involved. However mistakes do happen and you can be sure that those people will be complaining online with negative reviews.

I myself have never had such bad luck and continue to shop with confidence.

And that’s my take and review on Stadium Goods.
Hope that helps & comments welcome!

David.

Yes, there is a localized version of global eBay, that servers Moroccon buyers, sellers and supports shipping, and delivery to the country.

Click here for the eBay store website in Morrocco

eBay in Morocco

Wether you are located in Casablanca, Fez, Tangier, Marrakesh or elsewhere in the country, the official site intended for Moroccan users is the “global eBay site”.

So while there is no own domain name like eBay.ma, the site can detect your location and serve search results and content accordingly.

If you were wondering can ebay deliver to Morocco, it does all that and more. The e-commerce site for auctioning, and online shopping is well known there.

There are even plenty of Moroccan eBay sellers. Here’s my guide!

How eBay works in Morocco

Use these simple tricks to fine tune your shopping experience, in or outside of Morocco. And please, read further for details on how localization works.

Purchasing from Moroccan eBay sellers;

For the cheapest shipping, and fastest delivery of course, you can do a search amongst eBay sellers physically located in Morocco like below.

Step 1. Go to advanced search page on Moroccan eBay

Step 2. Fill in the search box first.

Step 3. Further below that, select “Morocco” from the list of countries under the “Located in” dropdown menu.

Step 4. From then on, searches are narrowed down to Moroccan sellers only.

Purchasing from eBay sellers in different regions;

Popular methods for global shopping is to narrow down searches to either Europe, or Asia for cost competitive shopping but higher shipping costs.

Step 1. Go to the global eBay site version for Morocco

Step 2. Conduct a regular site search for the item of your choice.

Step 3. The search results page will display quick selection menu on the left, with an option to search in regions such as, North America, Asia, Europe, etc.

Delivery in Morocco, and shipping;

Being a global marketplace, most international sellers support shipping, and can deliver to the country, not just sellers in Morocco.

Which delivery methods are available does depend on the individual seller, not on eBay. Usually options are between regular mail and fast courier services.

If the seller doesn’t have the available shipping method as an option, you can always contact them in person and ask for a custom quote, which often works.

When you are located in Morocco, it will show those used or auctioned items first that support global shipping. As well as calculate costs automatically.

When outside of Morocco, but wanting to buy products, and have them shipped to the country for family and friends, you need to sign up, or sign in to your old eBay account to change relevant country settings. Or simply, change the country of deliver on an individual item page to see support, and cost of shipping.

Sending items to following Moroccan cities is supported; Temara, Tetouan, Fez, Casablanca, Salé, Agadir, Tangier, Meknes, Oujda, Rabat, Marrakesh, Kenitra.

Also, all 12 regions in Morocco are widely supported; Dakhla-Oued Ed-Dahab, Marrakesh-Safi, Fès-Meknès, Casablanca-Settat, Oriental, Rabat-Salé-Kénitra, Drâa-Tafilalet, Laâyoune-Sakia El Hamra, Souss-Massa, Tanger-Tetouan-Al Hoceima, Béni, Mellal-Khénifra, as well as Guelmim-Oued Noun.

Support for Moroccan dirham currency;

Unfortunately, there is no support for the local currency. Despite some other country localization supporting this, for example Euro in Europe, etc.

Instead, if your internet connection is located in Morocco and you access the official, global version of eBay you will see all costs converted to US Dollars (USD).

Selling & auctioning on eBay in Morocco;

The site is popular with sellers both international and in Morocco. The former of which, uses the marketplace website to enter the local e-commerce market.

You can use the global shipping program to make sure that your product can be shipped to, and delivered in the country. Easy, with the convenience of English.

However, this guide is mainly a how to for buyers!

Have you got any questions about Moroccan e-commerce?
I’m happy to answer about buying, shipping, online shopping, eBay, etc.

Huge thanks for reading and possible sharing on social media.

Best regards, David.

David Elfering <![CDATA[YouTube Support: How to Contact Quality YouTube Customer Care]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=9720 2020-08-20T06:30:34Z 2020-07-24T12:00:35Z YouTube’s famous slogan “broadcast yourself” could also be applied to their customer support as it seems that it’s hard to get any advanced help to problems.

Unless you are looking for capped answers to common questions, I’ve had nothing but a hard time trying to reach a helpful human being at the firm.

Here’s a method I’ve found for real high quality YouTube customer care.

Those looking for a peace of mind should benefit from this.

YouTube Help

How to get high quality YouTube Support?

Obviously YouTube has chosen the easy way out to optimizing their customer care and profits along with it. This is despite the fact that many people from video creators to viewers are in desperate need for expert help.

And especially the kind that requires a person to actually look into your individual problem without categorizing you into a so called “support funnel”.

But I’ve found that it’s possible to get this level of support with a;

  1. Real human being who cares.
  2. Is an expert on all things YouTube.
  3. Listens to your problem to help you out in the best way possible.

You can “use this link” to send in your question to Justanswer.

It’s well worth it for advanced questions that need personalized support in my experience. If you have a common question, I’d recommend first checking out their Help Center for answers.

There are actually loads of well written articles with step-by-step instructions on how to do stuff and get common problems solved, it’s just that when it’s time to contact them for a specific problem… good luck!

Problem with YouTube’s help?

As you know it’s massive company with a massive user base, thus any decision to help or not help their customers is going to have a big impact on everything including profits.

So that’s why they are very careful about the level and type of customer support they are willing to provide. While it’s understandable that they are not going to chat one on one about optimizing your YouTube channel and editing videos, etc. I think they could do better than they currently are.

This alternative to customer care has provided just that which has been a blessing in times of distress and just no interest in spending the whole day doing research, etc.

So I’m not pointing the finger here, just pointing out some realities. And I don’t buy the “but the service is free” stuff either, they are making massive profits and could provide better support.

Hope this helps content creators and ordinary users alike.

What is your take on YouTube’s customer service?
I’d love to hear you experience on their support below.

And thanks for taking your time to visit my humble blog, David.

Shipping to & How to Buy from eBay in Accra, etc]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=7729 2020-08-01T09:29:02Z 2020-07-20T12:00:04Z In this post, I’ve answered the question “does eBay work in Ghana?”. With tips on making online shopping & shipping work from Accra & elsewhere in 2020.

Click here for the eBay store website in Ghana

eBay in Ghana

In Accra, and elsewhere in the country eBay is surprisingly popular. Both for purchasing items from local, Ghanaian eBay sellers and as a global marketplace.

The website which is meant for visitors from Ghana, or those who want to send items to friends and family there is the “global eBay site here”.

It has some localization features, such as turning out relevant search results and automatically estimating shipping & delivery costs.

Continue reading to get the most of eBay in Ghana.

How eBay works in Ghana

As eBay consists of a vast number of “shops” that you can buy from, it’s a good idea to narrow down search results for your individual online shopping needs.

How to buy from Ghanaian eBay sellers;

As eBay is commonly used by sellers from Ghana to enter the global market, you can also shop among them online for fastest and cheapest delivery.

Step 1. Click on to advanced search page on Ghana eBay.

Step 2. Look for the “input field” and fill in the name of the product or item that you want to purchase from the eBay marketplace.

Step 3. After that, scroll down further until you see a drop-down list of countries to narrow down the search for — “Located in”.

Step 4. Select Ghana on the list and complete the search!

How to buy from other regions in the world;

For example, Ghanaian customers are commonly using eBay to purchase cheap items from Asia with affordable shipping options. Here’s how…!

Step 1. Click on to Ghana eBay site with global features.

Step 2. Do a normal search for your product or item.

Step 3. You’ll see settings on the left for choosing regions.

Step 4. Click on “Asia” for example, and only search results from that region will be shown on the same page you are on. That’s it..!

Does eBay ship to Ghana?

Not only eBay works in Ghana, there are many international and local sellers there that support shipping and delivery to Accra, Kumasi, etc.

Support does however depend on the individual seller, also which sending options are available does differ. So my usual advice is to contact them in person if the shipping method you are looking for is unavailable.

Some items are even shipped for free, from Asia for example.

Locations that support delivery include; Tema, Tamale, Accra, Cape Coast, Kumasi, Teshie, Ashiaman, Obuasi, Sunyani and Sekondi-Takoradi.

As for the cost of shipping, it will be automatically calculated when browsing eBay from Ghana. Otherwise, you can enter the product page and change the country.

Note! All costs for shipping and delivery are shown in US Dollars (USD) only, Ghanaian cedi (GHS) localization is not supported.

Furthermore, COD (cash on delivery) is not supported.

What payment methods are supported?

Besides the usual support for PayPal and credit cards. A commonly used solution for payments within Ghana is to use virtual credit cards or debit cards.

They are nowadays provided by many banks and businesses, such as VCCGhana, BOA Ghana, GTBank Ghana and others. Both Visa & MasterCard.

Usually setting up these cards is free and registration is fairly straightforward. Then you can just top-up the card with cash as needed for your eBay purchases.

As you make the payment, the final bill will be charged in Ghanaian cedi (GHS).

Seller & auctioning features on Ghana eBay site;

Weather you are a business or simply want to auction your items to online shoppers in Gahan, eBay provides convenient services to achieve this.

For international sellers, use their global shipping program which will fully support you from square one on establishing business there.

Also everything is English which is all very convenient of course.

Note! There is no eBay.gh website version available, as is the case for some of the bigger country localizations, the global site works very well in Ghana.

Any more questions about ecommerce and online shopping in Ghana?
I’m most happy to answer questions on eBay, shipping, etc.

Great you could stop by and I hope you benefited from the post.

As a last measure, I want to establish transparency with my readers and notify you that affiliate links are often present in these guides, reviews, pots, etc.

David Elfering <![CDATA[How to Add CSS Class Directly to The WordPress Menu Item Link]]> http://www.elftronix.com/?p=92 2020-07-31T08:34:39Z 2020-07-16T12:00:54Z In this post I’ll explain how to define CSS classes for WordPress menu items.

WordPress Menu Item CSS

Let’s say that you want to add a specific CSS class directly to a WordPress menu item link. So for example something like this:

<a class=”piwik_link” href=”http://www.domain”>menu item</a>

In WordPress there is the “CSS Classes” setting in “advanced menu properties”. Which can be enabled in the “screen options”, when editing menus. This setting however puts the CSS class outside of the link code.

In this case I needed to add a class to track clicks on an outbound link in Piwik. Because by setting up the class “piwik_link“, directly inside the “a href” line of code, clicks can be recorded as as a “goal”.

CSS Class WordPress Menu Item Link

To do this, simply navigate to the appearance editor in WordPress, and add a few lines of code to your “functions.php” file, in the bottom for example:

function add_menuclass($ulclass) {
return preg_replace('/<a rel="nofollow"/', '<a rel="nofollow" class="piwik_link"', $ulclass, 1);
}
add_filter('wp_nav_menu','add_menuclass');

In this example, all menu links that are set rel=”nofollow” will automatically append the class “piwik_link”. You may change the code to fit your needs.

Therefore automatically each:

<a rel=”nofollow” href=”http://www.domain”>menu item</a>

will be converted to:

<a class=”piwik_link” rel=”nofollow” href=”http://www.domain”>menu item</a>

To add rel attributes in wordpress, go to menu editor -> screen options -> enable “Link Relationship (XFN)” and each menu item will have a new Link Relationship (XFN) option. In this box you can enter the desired rel attributes.

Hope that helps to add classes to WordPress menu items.
Comments are welcome of course! David.

Guide to Shopping, Shipping & Similar Sites]]> https://www.elftronix.com/?p=6012 2020-07-26T07:06:18Z 2020-07-14T12:00:21Z Although no real eBay equivalent exists in Norway, the English version is popular with Norwegian buyers, sellers. With Norwegian krone & shipping support.

eBay in Norway

How eBay works in Norway

Sites most similar to eBay in Norway are for old-fashioned classified ads. No company has any of the extensive eBay features for buying, selling & auctioning items.

So despite the lack of Norwegian language support, eBay remains useful and popular in Norway, as most shoppers are also accustomed to English.

Shopping from Norwegian sellers;

Step 1. First navigate to the English version of eBay in Norway

Step 2. Look for the “Advanced” link, right next to the Search button

Step 3. Look for “Location” settings.

Step 4. Select Norway in the “Located in” drop-down menu.

Step 5. Search for items from Norwegian eBay sellers!

Thanks to the free trade agreement within the EU, you can also simply check the “Europe” tick box, under “Item Location” options when searching for items normally. No import duties are applied, and shipping to Norway is affordable.

Shopping in Norwegian krone;

The same eBay site version supports the display of pricing in Norwegian krone currency for those who’s internet connection is located within Norway.

This means, that as long as your IP address is from Norway, all prices are automatically converted to NOK when browsing the site.

If you want to see items in USD or with their original currency, navigate to “Customize” under View options at the top of your search. And unselect the box that says “Convert prices to NOK”. Finally click on “Apply changes”.

Selling to Norway;

As the eBay market has many buyers from Norway, it’s also a convenient channel for international sellers to reach them, with an easy English interface.

For more information, see eBay’s Global Shipping Program which supports a range of delivery, and selling options to Norway & rest of Scandinavia.

Sites Similar to eBay in Norway

While there is really no website I can recommend as an equivalent, those who don’t mind going the old-fashioned route, classified ads are still somewhat popular in Norway. And they are the only sites that are a little similar to eBay’s system.

FINN.no — Mulighetenes Marked

If you want to connect with sellers in Norway directly, FINN.no is the most active classified ads websites in the country. It’s been around since 2000, and most people are familiar with it, famous for buying used cars, household items, etc.

Also note that the site is strictly in Norweigan only. No English is supported, and also the site is meant for those located in the country, as shipping for the majority of sold items is for Norway only. However, this is negotiable with sellers.

I hope that answers the question, “is there eBay in Norway?”.
