In this post I’m going to show you the steps to do so that your Facebook friends won’t know the last time since you’ve logged in and so that they won’t know how long since you have been active on Facebook.
By default, Facebook shows the last time a Facebook friend last logged in online. Facebook shows when a person is currently online and how long it’s been since they were last active on Facebook – by the minute! Continue reading “Hide Last Online Time on Facebook”
As I was creating my price comparison, ecommerce website, I was testing whether my Ebay affiliate links were working. (I am using WordPress Woocommerce and comparing product prices between Amazon and Ebay for visitors).
On my site’s product page, when I clicked on the ebay link, it did direct me to the product on Ebay, but when I looked at the ebay URL on the top, my Ebay EPN campaign id was not showing. The URL was only showing the item ID. I know I needed to have the campaign ID so that I get affiliate credit from Ebay. The link in the URL without the campaign ID is shown below:
I went back to the ebay developer’s page to make sure that I pasted the correct Ebay Application ID (appID) – and that it was the app ID for production and not sandbox. I made sure that I am using the proper Ebay EPN Campaign ID. These two things are needed for the WordPress plugin that I use to fetch Ebay products on my WordPress interface.
Anyway, those two item numbers (for Ebay AppID and Campaign ID) were both correct.
I had to send a few thousand dollars to the Philippines and wanted to find out whether sending through Western Union or a wire transfer with a bank saves me more money.
I know that a lot of people would like to know because some of you want to send a large amount of money for investments, paying for large purchases, or even for family support.
When you’re sending over a thousand dollars, the Western Union’s website (at least the Canada Western Union one) does not provide clear details on how much exactly the fees are. The fee varies depending on the amount of money you are sending – but it isn’t clear as to how much.
Also, they use two different sites depending on whether you are sending more or less than a thousand dollars (Equal/less than $999.99 dollars to quote them exactly).
Western Union: Sending Money Equal or Below $999.99 Canadian Dollars:

I purchased a WordPress plugin that fetches Amazon products directly through my WordPress post interface. I am running an Amazon affiliate WordPress ecommerce online store. The plugin is supposed to help me populate my Amazon affiliate website faster. But, in order to make the plugin work and connect with my actual Amazon account (so I get my commission), I needed an Amazon Access Key ID and Amazon Secret Access Key.
According to Amazon, “the Product Advertising API provides programmatic access to Amazon’s product selection and discovery functionality so that developers can advertise Amazon products to monetize your website.
The Amazon Product Advertising API gives us access to Amazon’s selection of millions of products in different categories such as books, music, digital downloads, electronics and more from Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.es, Amazon.it, Amazon.co.jp, Amazon.cn, Amazon.in …”
In short, the Amazon API enables our plugin to search for products, product information, rating and other features using our Amazon account.
