How to embed a Google Calendar in a responsive way?

Print Postage on Paypal without a Money Transaction – hacker not cracker July 5, 2015

Totally a hack…

 

Alternatives

There are other alternatives that allow you to print both premium and budget postage online. Pitney Bowes and Stamps.com are the most notable. However, in addition to the cost of the postage itself, these companies also charge a monthly usage fee. Unless you ship more than 50 items, this expense is just another financial burden.

PayPal

In 2005, PayPal partnered with Pitney Bowes to encourage more eBay sellers to accept online payments through its service. This was a godsend for sellers like me! Basically, the service allowed them to buy any type of domestic and Canada postage online without any monthly fee. The only limitation was that parcel recipients had to have sent you money. For example, I could buy postage for sending a package to a buyer who just paid me via PayPal. On the other hand, I could not buy postage for sending a parcel to my mom. She would have to first send me money – regardless of the amount – and then I could mail her my gift.

Burning Down the Feeds

Despite the fact that it has been neglected by Google, Feedburner is beloved by many developers. Shutting down the API means that developers will have less flexibility when it comes to analyzing stats. And though no one can be certain that Google will shut it down altogether, many Feedburner users are concerned that it may not be the most reliable method for publishing, subscribing or monetizing one’s news feeds. As a result, many — including yours truly — will be looking for alternatives. Here are a few tools that we investigated.
