The first disadvantage of buying on eBay website is that you must have a PayPal account for making payments to the sellers. Since, not everyone owns a PayPal account and PayPal doesn't operate in every country, you can not shop on ebay if you don't have eBay. The website does allow payments by credit card but that also has to be done through PayPal.

2. Shopping on eBay.com can be expensive when you have to pay for shipment. 

3. Some sellers may not provide complete or accurate information about their products, due to which you may get something delivered to you that you didn't really wanted or wouldn't like something of that quality.

4. If you are bidding on an item, you will have to compete with many other bidders to win that item. Furthermore, you may have to wait for days or weeks for the bidding to end before you could buy the item.

5. There are many fraudulent sellers doing business on eBay. They might say they are selling a genuine item but when you get it, it is totally a different thing.

Top Advantages of Online Shopping

There are many benefits of online shopping. If you are considering shopping online, the following list of advantages of online shopping may encourage you to prefer shopping online in place of conventional shopping.

Save Time 

With just a few clicks, you can search through all the items on the website, read about them, and buy using your credit card. >An average search and purchase on eBay can take your 5 minutes, so it is too much of time saving than going to a physical shop in the town and shop there.

Save Energy 

It is tiresome to go out for shopping, from one shop to another, from one market to another, or sometimes you even need to travel to another city.

What is worse that you travel far to buy something but couldn't find that thing or the stocks were finished. Hence, with traditional shopping, you need to spend your energy or even waste it sometimes. The better alternative is to shop online where you save 100% of your energy.

Price and Quality Comparison

You can easily compare price of 10s of items before picking up the cheapest one. Furthermore, you can compare the item you are interested in with many other similar items that are also on sale. This helps you to pick up the right quality, at the right price.

Avoid queues

In conventional shopping, you have to stand in the queue and often very long queues to pay for your items. Whereas in online shopping, you don't have to face any such queue.

No Crowd

Online shopping saves you from going into crowd or a noisy environment. When you go to a city center, especially at the weekend, the streets are fully packed with people. Not just that, you may also find some shops full of people. This all makes you tired and you want to leave the place as quickly as possible - this takes away all the joy of your shopping.

Save Fuel 

Shopping online not only saves your time but saves your fuel also. Consider going out shopping 2-5 times a week, the cost of fuel that you pay, multiple it with how many times you go out in a month and in a year, it comes up to be a huge amount. Whereas when shopping online, you avoid this expenditure completely.

Too Ashamed to Buy 

Sometimes you want to buy a certain things that you can't buy when you are with someone, or maybe you only want to buy it from a ladies shop. Things like ladies under-garments, etc. may be difficult for someone to buy at a shop, in front of anyone. So, it is much easier to buy it online, instead, because all the process is private and no one will know what you have bought.

24/7 Availability 

Online shopping stores allow you to shop 24/7. Conventional retail stores close in the evening. There may be some stores that open 24/7 but you can not always find a particular thing that you need from those stores - you need to go to a specific store and that maybe closes early in the evening.

These were the advantages of online shopping. Also read: Advantages of Buying on EBay.com

Find Out How Adsense Pays You

How Does Adsense Pays You?

Companies pay Google to place ads for their products/services on Internet websites. Obviously, Google cannot put ads on a website that they don't own. They can only place ads on websites that are registered with Google to display ads.

If you own a website and you have registered with Google to display ads then Google will automatically start to display ads on your website.

Now, since you have provided Google with a place to display ads, Google will share money from businesses, with you, for running their ads. 

Google doesn't pay you your share as a lump sump amount, they pay you only for the ads on your website which your site visitor will click on. When a user clicks on an ad on your website, Google will charge the business whose ad was clicked on, and then share the payment from that business with you.

Payment Methods

Google sends you your earning by the method you choose. These methods include Western Union, Cheque, Wire - direct money transfer to your bank (this method is not available for Adsense publishers in every country)
