Freehand, Amazon and eBay #stealth #startup

leave a comment »

This is the first freehand unscheduled post in a while. And as such contains ramblings and general musings.

I was looking on today, as I was searching for hardware needed by a client without funding and a light wallet. I was comparing the prices to the list prices for the and saw a Cisco Certification book offered for $4.95 (Intn’l shipping $12.99). I obviously looked at , and it was being offered there for $2.07 (No intn’l shipping).

I realized that for somebody, such as me, who wanted to make profit in the margins and had an application which bought the popular/profitable eBay/Amazon items from Amazon and sold them on eBay. That person could have the money charged to the company account and use this money to recharge the company creditcard.

As usual, this is something that I haven’t build, or tested.

Leverage PayPal

leave a comment »

Squire-Org‘s Alexander Hay posted a nice post on leveraging PayPal‘s other features. PayPal has other services besides the payment system you may already know.

Firstly they offer a Mastercard debit card that can be issued in the name of non-US residents. The advantage is that it can be used as a regular credit card, without incuring credit card charges. PayPal also offers the feature of managing multiple foreign currency accounts. This can be used to avoid charges associated with exchanging money. And it can be used for all your eBay transactions.

As Hay says: “PayPal, if properly integrated into your asset protection structure, can add convenience to your system.

From e-Gold to Payment Systems

with one comment

I was reading the article e-Gold Founders Face Prison for Money Laundering on Mashable, and watching JAG reruns, I started wondering what the payment alternatives are.

First I’ll go through the list that was published earlier on Mashable here. The only ones that seem to be dead are eHotPay.com, FastCash.com, LibertyDollars.org, Netpay.com (Search Engine Trap), paychest.com (became flushaway.com, I prefer the Mooncup), payingfast.com, Postepay.com, Qchex.com (Under preliminary injunction from FTC) and sendmoneyorder.com

They missed iDeal, the Dutch system which is based on the knowledge collected when the Dutch banks had their own deals with PayPal. At that time PayPal was so full of holes that it never would have passed European Banking Regulations.
