AliExpress Review

11 11 shopping Festival AliExpressAliExpress.com founded in 2009 is a marketplace offering products at factory prices direct from China. Orders can be as small as a single item.

The AliExpress.com website is actually featured on the main Alibaba.com website. When you sign up for a free membership with AliExpress, you are actually registering with Alibaba.com at the same time.

AliExpress has a range of 6,000 different types of groups of products, from electronics to clothes and from toys to jewelry, they have it all. Aliexpress does not sell products, they only offer the possibility to sell your products. Of course this is also disadvantages, later we come back to these disadvantages. Read everything in our Aliexpress review!

AliExpress is actually meant for selling bulk products to companies. Bulk (products) are just large quantities of a particular product. So that companies can simply buy an x number of units of the product for a reduced price. The minimum lot size of a product was usually 20 to 50 pieces. Today many sellers offer their products also by one piece. Down below is an example of a seller that offers iPhone USB cables with a minimum lot size of 500 pieces.

AliExpress has a very professional and stable website compared with other Chinese online shops. Additionally, AliExpress has released an app for iOS and Android so you can look and buy products wherever you are. This app is also very professional and have a build in chat with sellers so you can ask questions about the products they offer.

While this product gives the online party planning services category a more unique slant, we’re happy to include Eventbrite among our top rated products.

Standout Features

Eventbrite is a different type of party planning site included in our matrix, but is a party planning site nonetheless. Any event that requires a ticket, such as concerts, art sales and theater productions can use Eventbrite’s services. Your first step is to create your event’s webpage. Change the color and feel of the page however you want. You can also send email invitations for your event, although the email invites are different from the event webpage design.

After creating the event page, Eventbrite will promote your event on search engines and help you collect ticket sales from attendees. Their services are free if your event is free. And if your event is not free, Eventbrite will take a portion of your ticket sales. They also provide “day of event” services like printable badges and scannable tickets.

As stated above, if your event requires tickets this site is for you. The event webpage is very customizable. Change the font, upload a logo, embed images or video into the body of the event and customize the event page’s URL. There are dozens of options on the edit page. Since your event requires tickets, a registration page is also included with the event webpage, enabling attendees to register.

After you’ve created your event page and are moving onto sending email invitations to help advertise your event, Eventbrite lets you create an address book – as well as import contacts – to make sending out your invitation in mass quantities an easy process.

Click Magick Review

Click Magick is a new tracking service that has just been launched into the marketplace in 2014. The main question that we (as marketers) need to ask in regards to tracking services is: “What is the difference between service A and service B?” There are many […]

Grasscity Review

Grasscity.Com affiliate program bongs waterpipes glass pipesFirst off, Grasscity is run by real people, that understand that sh*t happens in the world, and that it’s not always perfect. By this I mean, if an item comes broken, or if the package never arrives, or if the item was stolen. You should never have issues with these things in a perfect world, but today’s world is far from that. Luckily, at Grasscity, they’ll understand!

Provided that you have proof that the item came broken. As for if the item was stolen, you would need to contact them directly, but I know that they typically ship out a replacement unless they think you’re looking to get another free one.

They Back Their Warranties!

Don’t read this and then break your bong and try and get a new one. That is not at all what I mean, glass, nowhere, will ever come with a warranty. If glass is ever broken, its the owner’s fault.

Anything else though, that Grasscity carries, that do have warranties, such as vaporizers for example, will be backed by Grasscity. The process may take a bit longer than actually going through the original manufacturer, but you can rest assured that it will be taken care of.

*I have read that some people have trouble with this, and others don’t, it seems that it may be dependent on the person they receive that day. I would suggest that if you know how to ship it to the original manufacturer, or contact them, they will help you to do so.

My favorite thing about Grasscity is that the shipping is worldwide, and discrete!

Some people may not see discrete as a perk, maybe because you live on your own, or maybe you don’t care if people see that you smoke. This is not the reason I’m happy about it. Having worked numerous jobs, with numerous amounts of people, I know first hand, that there are a lot of scumbags out there.

Just because a person is paid to deliver your mail doesn’t mean they won’t steal it. Not only that, but if there’s a name on the package indicating towards what is it, or who its from, anyone with knowledge of what that is, will know what to expect, and could very well steal it. You don’t see this issue as much with things with bigger, broader labels, such as clothing stores, because you never know what you’ll get.

You could get something for a 4’10” tall woman, and you could be a 6’4″ tall guy. So the risk isn’t worth the reward there, but to any stoner, there is no smoking gear that you wouldn’t take for free. If you were offered a bong for free, or a pipe, or even a grinder, you probably wouldn’t turn it down. And if this person is willing to steal someone else’s property, then you may end up losing a package. That’s why I love discrete shipping, makes it too hard to know whether its worth the risk or not.

FatCow Introduction

FatCow is a hosting service which appears to be entirely focused on shared hosting, although it provides a wide range of services and support to complement it. Its selling point is simple: simple hosting facilities and simple to use services, eliminating the need for technical fiddling.

There are two plans available, The Original FatCow Plan and The Minimoo. The company offers a variety of professional services which can be added on (at extra cost).

FatCow has been operating for well over 10 years now. The company was founded in 1998 in Albuquerque in the USA but it has since been bought by Endurance International who also own a number of other web hosting companies, such as Bluehost. Endurance International provides online solutions for 2 million customers through 40 different brands, many of which they have acquired over the last few years. (more…)
