5 Payment Processing Way in 2020 You Don’t Want To Avoid

suharto hm

The money related area has changed drastically over the previous decade, and for organizations that need to stay on top of things, it’s critical to comprehend what the future may hold. By recognizing changes at an opportune time, it’s a lot simpler to adjust, consolidating modifications with no “hiccups” in your own income stream. In the event that you need to enable your business to remain serious, here are five advancing installment handling patterns for 2020 that you should know about.

 

  1. Expanded Demand for Peer-to-Peer Payments

 

While it may be sufficient for certain organizations to offer just charge cards (and possibly ACH push and pull exchanges) for the clients, to stay up with developing patterns, you should add shared (p2p) installments to your rundown of installment alternatives.

 

While p2p stages were at first propelled to permit (at least two) individuals to move assets to and from one … Read More

Parents and kids hate online learning, but they could face more of it

john rambo

In his suburban New Jersey home-turned-classroom this spring, parent Don Seaman quickly found himself in the role of household vice principal.

While his wife holed up in the bedroom to work each day, Seaman, a media and marketing professional, worked from the family room where he could supervise his children’s virtual learning. A similar scene played out in millions of American homes after schools shuttered and moved classes online to contain the coronavirus.

Now that the year’s over, Seaman has strong feelings about the experience: Despite the best efforts of teachers, virtual learning didn’t work. At least not uniformly, if his three children in elementary, middle and high school are any indication.

“The older kids were saying ‘This is hell,'” Seaman said. “My kids feel isolated, and they can’t keep up, and they’re struggling with it.”

But like it or not, remote instruction and virtual learning are likely to continue

When it comes to education, the new state budget goes beyond providing $70.5 billion in funding for K-12 schools — it sets fundamental accountability rules for a new era of distance learning in California by requiring teachers to take online attendance and document student learning.

The budget bill, which Gov. Gavin Newsom is expected to sign, anticipates that schools will continue to rely heavily on online instruction when campuses reopen in the fall. It also implicitly acknowledges the deep learning losses of the last semester, especially among students from low-income families, when school systems struggled to get all students online.

An Online Hub, Social Distancing, and Maybe Even a Date Shift

john rambo

The 2021 Sundance Film Festival may still be months from unfolding in Park City, Utah, but newly-installed festival director Tabitha Jackson has revealed that the festival is planning for a range of scenarios when it comes to imagining what the event will look like during the global health crisis. In a wide-ranging new memo, the former director of Sundance Institute’s documentary film program (who was announced as John Cooper’s successor just five months ago), addressed the current climate and Sundance’s reaction to it.

Although the memo provides few specific details about the next edition, Jackson outlined plans for national screenings, online access to the lineup, and even hinted at a potential date change.

While other festivals have opted to go entirely virtual or postpone their physical editions altogether, heavy hitters like TIFF are carving out the possibility of mounting an event that offers both physical and virtual components. For now, … Read More

Parents and kids hate online classes. Going back to school likely will include more of it.

Earlier this morning, Gap officially announced a historic partnership with Yeezy (the aptly named “Yeezy Gap” line) set to debut in stores and online in the beginning of 2021. The recently inked deal—which will include men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing (but not footwear)—marks the culmination of Kanye West’s decades-long effort to be taken seriously as a power player in the mass-market apparel space, and is a poignant full circle moment for an artist that famously worked a gig at his local Gap as a teen growing up in Chicago.

Over the years, West has made his admiration for the American chain extremely clear, shouting out the retailer in songs and interviews alike. And for the ailing mall mainstay, the partnership couldn’t come at a more opportune moment. West’s brand has never been bigger and Gap, suffering from a perfect storm of pandemic-related factors and

Tech companies make money off your data. Shouldn’t you be paid, too?

Whenever you sign up for a new social media service or website, or download an app onto your phone or computer, you’ll typically see some long disclaimer written in legalese. You scroll through it quickly and click “I agree.”

This fine print is known as a privacy policy. It lays out (sometimes in the most convoluted way possible) how the site or app can use or share your data. The problem is, no one actually reads it. You just click “Yes” and hope for the best, since that’s the price you pay for a free website, app or social media network. It seems like a pretty sweet deal.

But that’s not the deal we’re getting.

Our phones and computers can track our every movement and action. Facebook and Google log every “like” or click on their sites. There are numerous ways our data are collected, used, shared and sold by

It’s another Saturday afternoon during lockdown, and you’re back on Amazon, filling your cart with household items and groceries. You haven’t been able to make your typical Target and Walmart runs lately, so you’re stocking up virtually instead.

Online shopping: everyone does it so it’s pretty harmless, right? Well, not always. Fraud is a possibility any time you shop online, according to Experian. And during a worldwide pandemic or even the holiday season, you’re especially vulnerable to hackers, phishers, and identity thieves. Covid-related fraud has already robbed a cumulative $13.4 million from unsuspecting Americans, according to the Federal Trade Commission.

Online shopping a steep learning curve for Cuba

john rambo

Havana (AFP) – When Jorge Noris first tried online shopping, Cuban-style, the products he bought never turned up.

Like most people, the father of two living on the outskirts of Havana was seduced by the convenience of shopping over the internet.

However, Cuba’s catch-up with the world of e-commerce, encouraged by its communist rulers during the coronavirus lockdown, has left many users angry.

“After a month, the store called me to ask if the order had arrived,” said Noris, a 34-year-old technician. He was similarly stunned when he discovered he had to travel into the shop to be reimbursed.

Worldwide, the online food trade has been given a massive shot in the arm by the pandemic. With millions confined to their homes, online consumer activity soared by 300 percent in Italy and Spain, and 100 percent in France, according to pollsters Nielsen.

But the experience is still a novel one
