Easy Global Payments with Payoneer

Are you an affiliate marketer? A blogger? Or perhaps you do a lot of online transactions? 

Here’s something that is making things really easy for me, when it comes to receiving payments online: Payoneer Prepaid Debit MasterCard Card.

It offers a lot of convenience for those always transacting online. As for me, I’m a blogger and affiliate marketer and I receive some of my affiliate commissions on my Payoneer.  There are several advantages to this:

The main reason I applied for a Payoneer Prepaid Debit MasterCard Card was to receive my affiliate commissions. Before this, I usually receive payments by check. And you know how long that takes especially if you are living outside of US. But with Payoneer, it just takes a few days and I have the payments in my account.

How I Applied for My Payoneer MasterCard Card?

There are two ways to apply for a Payoneer Card. (1) Apply directly to Payoneer or (2) Via a Payoneer partner (ie. Freelancer, Odesk, Infolinks, Elance, Fiverr, Clickbank, 2CheckOut etc).

Payoneer has some very reputable partners. I was contemplating applying through my Freelancer.com or Odesk accounts, but in the end decided against it because I rarely use this sites nowadays. So I went directly and applied for my card on the Payoneer website.

The sign up was a breeze. After completing the application, I was sent a confirmation email. After a few days, I received email instructions for verification. I was asked to send a scanned copy of an ID and proof of billing. A day after, I got an email confirming my application was approved and I will be receiving my Payoneer card via mail in a few weeks.

After waiting a couple of weeks, I got this! My Payoneer Prepaid Debit MasterCard Card.

Applying for Payoneer MasterCard

Now I’m quite happily receiving my Amazon and ShareaSale commissions on my Payoneer Card.

Mourning SpringPad

I know this might be totally over the top for me, but I’m really really sad about SpringPad note taking app/software saying good bye. For one, I’ve been using it for a while already and I loved it. And so I have tons of notes in there. It’s the one browser extension and mobile app I always need to have.  So yeah, I was so bummed when I got this email:

We are very sorry to announce that Springpad will be shutting down on June 25th. At that point, Springpad.com will no longer be available and all online and sync features of the mobile apps will stop working.

It’s quite sad to see some of these really brilliant apps closing down. I wish there was something I could have helped done like maybe they could have offered a more feature pro version and I would have gladly paid the membership. For me SpringPad was like a beautiful notebook and journal..

Anyhow, thankfully SpringPad provided an easy way to export the notes to EverNote. Sigh. An app I don’t have much love for. I don’t know why  but I cant seem to like its interface. But what can I do.

So now most of my stuff are usually sitting in Google Drive and notes on Evernote. I hope someday soon, something as beautiful as Springpad would come along.

Value for Money Smartphone: Alcatel Pop C9

My sister has been looking for a smartphone to buy for sometime already. BUT she is very exacting and quite specific. And she has been bugging me to recommend a good one for her and one at a price point she could live with.

Let’s just say she is extremely budget conscious and wants a device that can do what she wants at a reasonable price point. Yeah, she’s the sort to scour different sites to see if the prices are different for every thing she wants to buy.

I asked her what she wants to do with the phone, what functions she wants. She wants to use it for social media, read emails, maybe some news updates, so she prefers a big screen phone preferably above 5″. It also needs to have a passable camera and can play a few games. And most of all, must not cost more than $200.

Alcatel Pop C9 Buyer Review

So off we went to do our research and stumbled across Alcatel Pop C9. And was quite impressed. We headed over to the nearest phone shop to play with it and see if it suits her. And she loved it. The price point is also LOVE. We got it for $199 with 1 yr warranty (lower if you opt for 3 or 6 mo warranty) and a host of freebies.

I liked that it doesn’t look cheap, its actually well made and resembles the Galaxy Note 1, the screen is crisp, bright and big at 5.5″. It’s also passably fast with 1 GB RAM, Quad-core 1.3 GHz, runs on Android Jelly Bean, and has an 8MP camera which takes reasonably good photos.

Let’s just say my sister is very very happy with her purchase. And me too. I would recommend it, if you’re looking for a budget smartphone that packs a punch, go for an Alcatel Pop C9.

On Blogging: Server Overloading and Cron Problems with A Plugin

This week, I had one of my hosted accounts go on server overload. It was a bit puzzling for me as the sites were well maintained, the databases I always clean up and optimize. So I figured something must have gone wrong when my webhost told me the problem was multiple cron executions.

Which made me say duh?! I haven’t set up any cron jobs on the wordpress sites except for the default cron jobs initiated by the CMS. So I then installed cron manager plugin to see what are the cron jobs scheduled and which plugin could be causing the endless line of cron jobs.

That turned out to be an inspired idea. The culprit was a gallery plugin and with the cron manager plugin I installed, I managed to delete the cron jobs lined up. I also removed the plugin to be sure.

If you are running an exceptionally high number of cron jobs and you have no idea where its coming from, Advanced Cron Manager or FFF Cron Control can really be a big help to pinpoint which ones are causing problems.

Gorgeous Laptop Tote Bags

I dislike carrying those utilitarian black laptop bags. I know that’s incredibly picky but why not be chic while lugging about a huge laptop? After all, for me why wear a plain hairstyle when you can be like a chameleon . Same goes for laptop bags, you can have something functional but also stylish. It is possible, believe me.

In fact I prefer to buy a really fashionable laptop tote so I only need to carry one bag instead of carrying my tote/shoulder bag for my ladies essentials and a separate laptop bag. Here’s some laptop tote bags that look really good and also give you the carrying space for your laptops..

Music Mixing Android App

I have a daughter who is absolutely crazy about music. I figured it won’t be long before she asks me for a pricey music instrument but for now she is into mixing music.
