How do you know you can trust that you will be getting real software
There are many different places online where they offer you a discount for buying software, however very often you may not be getting what you think you are getting here are a few things to watch out for when considering buying software online.
buying software on ebay can be a risky thing, so make sure you understand some of the things you may want to know about a software vendor.
Version what version are you getting is it a full version or is it an educational version, is it an upgrade?
Watch out for tricks that some vendors may try to play on you.
beware of ebay sellers with little or no feedback…
check out a vendors previous auctions and feedback.
Google that vendor to see if there have been complaints in the past.
Avoid vendors that offer to sell you a deep discounted software program, (it might be counterfeit)
Send them an email, if they reply and answer your questions, (all of them) then you will know more about them.
The bottom line is that if you are not careful you could end up spending money on software and getting nothing in return be fully aware of a websites policies concerning selling and how vendors work in that company. Some companies will tell you in the fine print that they do not cover you if a vendor has no feedback or they have less feedback this is not a good thing and if you find a company like that the best thing to do is to avoid them entirely. Take for example, Ebay.com here is an auction for software that is very popular, try out our process, check the vendor out, see what their feedback is, find out if they have complaints, and contact them to see if they reply to your questions about the auction items.
Writing software, creating software can help build your business.
building software is a process that you can follow using a set check list, however that is only a part of the entire process.
Software use in many small business companies is on the rise and it is being supplied from the traditional outlets either. One of the most interesting aspects of this modern technologically world we live in is that the old time supplies such as Microsoft and even apple seem to be moving to the back of the bus so to speak.
types of software and how they work.
With so many open source options available today why would a small business company spend so much money on a software solution that perhaps may not be as popular or even as effective as some of the open source solutions out there. A great point in case is this hotel that I am not staying in yesterday they lost several hundreds in profits because they purchased some software from a vendor and that vendor let them down, they were unable to process any payments, they had customers standing in line waiting for the opportunity to do business with them.
A retailers nightmare…
This is a business nightmare when you cannot generate revenue and you have bills that come in month after month then you know that you cannot afford to loose money… In this very challenging economy a business cannot afford to make these kinds of mistakes… The thing is this company allegedly paid like $8000.00 to a vendor and ended up loosing money because of all the problems that the software caused that business then ended up allegedly moving to an open source solution.
So, the old methods of using software vendors may not always be a good method of creating revenue.
