China Plans to Launch an Antitrust Probe Into Google

An unsuspecting customer, ME, I was in for a shock.

VISA Card I used for 20 years was declined by Google Play – for an annual subscription I had for GOOGLE 1 which is its Cloud service.

When I tried to remove and input the Credit card into payment methods second shock! It won’t accept it except from Axis bank and SBI ! 

I approached my bank who told me they have blacklisted this App due to suspicious activity but FAILED TO INFORM the customers that they are going to decline the subscription payment to the App.

Third shock, I deleted and made new Google payment profile.   And within an hour all years of stored GOOGLE PHOTOS, FOLDERS went POOF! Because I did have whant Google Play accept as ACCEPTABLE PAYMENT METHODS.

Fourth, I wrote to Google, Citi, Visa on Twitter about this but never got any response.  Nor did I get it from the Minister of IT for whom Chinese Mobile manufacturers and Google, FAcebook are the dearest. 

I wish there was a better redressaal system in India for consumer woes.

“Couple of years ago, same VISA supplier bank banned Paypal without notice to customers and I suffered..  No apology.  I wish I had changed my credit card issuing bank but I was Old, Retired and a Heart/Diabetes patient and did not wish to run around chasing credit card sales people.

October Content Marketing

Autumn leaves and cool breeze, the month of October ushers in a brand-new season; one that lights up the country in vibrant colors and bright lights. And despite the ongoing pandemic, it’s time to make peace with the present and put on a smile, in the renewed hope of better things to come. Read on to know how you can use content marketing ideas in October to bring various shades of happiness to your consumers. 

October is the month of transition
As the monsoon begins its retreat throughout India, the sweltering heat is slowly replaced with cool evenings. Giddy golden leaves pave walkways across the country.Festive fervour tightens its grip, gully cricket pops up everywhere, markets are flooded with wares and buyers, refrigerators stocked with sweets, light sweaters aired out, gifts bought and exchanged, and complicated lists drawn up – dry fruits for some, juice boxes for others.Long strolls come back in fashion, as do long evenings spent in parks. Family picnics, the annual cleaning, late-night get-togethers … In a world as confusing as the one we inhabit right now, aren’t we glad there is still an October?But this year October will be met by humanity already under transition.
A lot of the things we took for granted every October won’t be possible this time around. But October is the perfect month to draw up new traditions, hold our loved ones close, and evaluate what we truly care about.
