Has anybody sold via Paypal and PaU both, and have any specific inputs on one vs the other? I am setting up my online store and expect more business from overseas than India. Do issues bothering me:
1) Paypal has greater credibility abroad, but it does not give me an INR option. Is that really true??? It seems absurd!
2) PayU is supposedly cheaper, but that appears to apply more to electronic goods; in the cae of handicrafts, I can’t quite figure out how the math compares.
I’d appreaciate any gyaan please!
Hi, is there someone who can help me with hosting on wordpress directly? Rt now, my blog site is with a different vendor and every few weeks, it goes off
The website says-
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to the site owner reaching his/her bandwidth limit. Please try again later. The surprising part is I haven’t uploaded anything in the last 5 months. Please inbox if a hosting vendor could help.
Online shopping fatigue – myth or reality?
I was talking to a friend the other day who said matured markets like the US are already facing this issue. A 5 screen is providing you a million varieties of a million products in a million categories on a million websites. And this is mentally tiring out people, not to forget, so intensively confusing them. He claimed the only reason why people shop online is for the huge discounts (cash-burns under the pretext of customer aquisition) and this again is true only for electronics. Although purchase of apparel and commodities is happening in billions, people are only experimenting. And this kind of experimenting will not last long. Cash-burns will eventually end and people would go to the local store to buy their electronics quicker. Apparel sales will drop drastically even before the stop of cash burns, when people will realise the fabric seemed better in the photos or when even this jeans doesn’t fit right at the thighs.
P.S.: Friend is the founder and CEO of an e-commerce website. The irony.

Have any of you ever faced this problem? Further, how did you solve it?

Hello Bangalore! I recently came to the city to startup and am staying with a friend. I have experience of starting up and am looking to meet people who have their startup/are enthusiastic about tackling problems. I want to explore what awesome things are happening at Bangalore. Seeing how much this group cares about startups I was wondering what you guys would suggest(like people, events, talks, demos, conferences, etc). Since there are so many things going on these days, many end up being a waste of time, so an insight from this group will help a lot in discovering quality.
The rough plan is to explore ideas, executions, people, get a coworking space and a place to live and start working on something exciting. Thank you for your time
PS(for admins) – I am not looking for a specific need like free position etc so didn’t post in the sister groups/threads. Sorry if this isn’t the right place.
Based on requests from many group members, we are starting a thread dedicated to co-founder hiring.
[a] If you’re looking for a co-founder, post it here as comments.
[b] Do NOT comment here for any non co-founder job post. PLEASE. respect time of fellow group members. The ones not adhering to rules will be banned.

Over the course of last few months, we have developed quite a few coding tools which should help the community . We are trying to open source a few such tools through our blog.. Hope it will help you guys. Just asking for shameless upvotes https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9611624 . As the title suggests, we have found a way to work around the (lack) of proper documentation of google spreadsheet api and built a simple analytics dashboard. Will publishing stuff every fortnight. Next article will be on working with limitations of ng-repeat angularjs.
I am one of the founders of Ridingo.com (Acquired by Carzonrent recently). We are looking for consultants to build some applications. The consultants must be willing to work in our premises located in Bangalore. We are looking at consultants for the following streams.
- Backend APIs/Cloud
For new internet users acquired by Internet.org, only seven percent of data usage was Internet.org (including Free FB).
These new users are now consuming more than 100MB per month outside of Internet.org (that is, people are paying for data from Reliance),
There are very few who think AirtelZero & internet.org are good tactical ways bring more Indians online more rapidly. Here is one such view.
TLDR: We underestimate the intelligence & aspirations of the next-billion. In longer run, everyone would benefit from a grown internet base.
This data is from FB & Reliance & could be cooked up. But I believe the future trend would indeed be similar.
The so-called walled garden is one brick high. The wild web, paid-for, is one tap away.
Our view of the next billion, the unconnected, is very 1960ish. The poor were spending on hello tunes while we the privileged were downloading torrents. We underestimate both their intelligence & aspirations. A next-billion girl will spend 20 bucks outside the walled-garden if it saves her Rs 100 to buy a salwar from app/website outside AirtelZero. A teenage boy will download Ms. Leone from outside the walled garden. The ATM security guard will cut down one peg if that gets him Candy Crush & more entertainment.
A ZeroRated Flipkart will not kill a promising ecomm startup. THE Flipkart will kill it. But if there is indeed a budding challenger, it too would raise enough VC to get itself ZeroRated coz the pie would have got bigger more rapidly by then. If a free FB helps grow *your* TAM 10 million per year, you take it!
I think a time bound digital affirmative action would benefit the meritorious more in longer run.
