Entropay virtual credit card | A user guide

ENTROPAY is a virtual credit card service available for online payments. It has a user of more than 2 million and is running for more than 13 years as an online virtual card for payments.

It has the latest technology and security mechanism which provides you with the best security for your personal information. As we all are worried about the security of our personal information when we use an online transaction for purchasing goods. It is accepted where visa cards are accepted anywhere around the world and in any country. 

I am sure there are countries where your cards are not meant for international transactions for online payments. entropy is free virtual credit for online payments which is, of course, a free service but it will cost you a small fraction of your money for the transactions you make through entropay. The card can be created when you need them and can be deleted when you don’t need them.

UPDATE

ENTROPAY will no longer work in different parts of the world including Norway from 31st October 2018. It will become exclusive to the European Union or Europe. I think it is because of laws and restrictions. The money you have as your balance can still be used. 

I won’t say it’s a con but for your information, it can protect your personal information +99% from a fraudster. It is still a small chance of less than 1% for a fraudster to acquire enough information to make a transaction on your behalf without you knowing about it. I just added this just for information purposes only. By the end of the day, it is still as secure as a bank.

I have added some pricing of using Entropay service details in the picture about using entropy as an online payment mode for purchasing goods online. I think it better to use entropy service for online transactions for international payments and not have to be worried about the security of your personal information is a compromise.

I highly recommend using the service for keeping your personal information safe when you make an online international transaction for payments of goods

Facebook for Bloggers | What you need to know

Here is the reason why Facebook blocked blog post or bloggers. I have come across this query or question before writing this blog post multiple times.

Before that, I have a vague memory of why it became difficult to share posts/articles/videos, etc. now unless you are a known brand/person.

It was the time when ads feature was first introduced by Facebook where you can run a sponsored or promotion for your content such as blog posts, articles, videos, etc.

At that time there were a lot of fake contents promoted and share which is why Facebook received backlash from Governments

The was the main reason behind this is to stop curb fake news or content. where it became difficult to share your contents on the platform

Here is the solution or answer to your question or query

This can be applied to Whatsapp and Instagram because it is owned by Facebook

HOW CAN I SHARE MY BLOG POST ON FACEBOOK

It is applicable to all bloggers whether you use WordPress, Blogger etc.

The most important one you need now on your website/blog is the Privacy Policy for your site. Which you can add it to the Pages option which is similar to creating a blog post

There are a few more Pages I would recommend you to add to your website/blog such as Disclaimer, Terms & Conditions, About and Contact form is optional which will depend on your business type

You can generate/create/make them for yourself from these site Privacy Policy Generator or Termsfeed. It is free for an individual but will cost you some money for business on Termsfeed

As for the About us page, you can use this service volusion to generate one for your website/blog for free. If possible I would recommend you to create/make it for yourself

A few basics information will be required like a website name, Domain name or URL and E-mail which will be incorporated

This will make your website/blog ready and prepared for monetization as well

From my own personal experience, it works like a charm
