    There will always be a few of these jerks. If your software allows it, block him from being able to buy anymore of your stuff in the future.

      Not worth the headaches...refund and sell to other, more grateful buyers.
      I've had it with paypal disputes...just not worth it.

    It happens a lot, but then I also get people who say "send me your product for free then if I like it I will buy it".

    With all the mention of deactivating this you would think that someone should create a program or a service that they can offer to people that makes it possible to see what ever message that someone wanted to be seen when this product is then distributed or when it is opened by the person that stole it. So they buy it and then ask for a refund then distribute it via any means.
    They do this in a manner that you know they are in effect stealing from you then you go in and activate this program and it says something like the product you are viewing was stolen and you are unable to see the contents to get the contents fairly and legally please go to
    I am sure that someone out there has the ability to create this and it may already be available.

      Just for fun, a fellow who used to work in the computer science division at the university I went to did that with the Active EBook Compiler.

      I dont know how he did it but he got a message to come up that said something like "Hello hacker. Your IP has been reported to the FBI" or something great like that. I bet that would scare the pants off of a few serial refunders!

      True, but why not make a few bucks from them before the universe does it's thing.

    You can always have your guarantee like this

    Use it for a full 30 days to see for yourself... then after the full 30 days if you're not completely satisfied my 100% iron clad money back guarantee will kick in.

    This way if they ask in 60 seconds you can point them to the 30/60/90 day guarantee

    Hope that helps

    Paypal does not force you to refund for a digital product. In fact the dispute will go your way on any intangible.

    Customer service is important but you don't have to let people abuse you. This isn't Wal-Mart after all and you probably got into business in the first place so you could call the shots, so to speak.

    So one option is to just not give the refund in a case like this.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    I've been a relatively successful Freelance writer on over the last several years. I haven'€™t worked totally consistently during that time, but I've done pretty well and have recently been growing my business pretty aggressively and turning up the heat! I recently got connected with a start-up company that frequently uses Freelance to get tasks done for cheap, and I had a great conversation with the founder of that company which serves as the inspiration for this article. Employers have to work hard to ensure that they'€™re getting the right person when they hire a Freelancer. Once a project is accepted and a milestone is created, it can be a major hassle to resolve any disputes, especially those surrounding the quality of the work. I don't have a lot of insight into this process but I have learned a thing or two about choosing the right employers. A lot of folks have it in their head that the customer is always right, but as a Freelancer, you have the ability to choose who is and isn'€™t going to be your customer. Here are some guidelines for finding great employers that fit with your business.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?
