  • How Does PDFPublisher.com Fare Against Its Competitors? - Blogtrepreneur - For Busy Entrepreneurs
    works with these types of files Word docx doc rtf Excel csv Powerpoint pptx ppt Unlike other sites PDFPublisher com can turn webpages into PDF with quite impressive output Nevertheless most are pretty standard formats among other websites except for GIRDAC which can also deal with images which is helpful since some photos render poorly when seen in other programs or devices Compared to other PDF converters the files uploaded or converted by PDFPublisher com can also render seamlessly in Google Drive and Dropbox removing the need to spend for a cloud PDF Creation Features Make no mistake about it creating PDFs straight from these types of websites is not the same as working in Adobe Acrobat so expect some learning curve The output may also be likely better in the latter than in PDFPublisher com but it will be enough if you don t want to deal with downloading Acrobat Reader It comes with certain features including Fill in PDF Form Password protected PDF Edit without Source File and Merge Documents These make PDFPublisher com an ideal choice than Able2Extract PDF Convert 8 although the latter has an edge as far as image conversion is concerned because of OCR support Some may say that Nitro Pro has an upper hand but this is specifically designed for professional use and thus capable of collaboration and batch work and it may suffer from sluggishness Cost Zamzar is a good competitor of PDFPublisher com in this area since it s free and works on multiple formats and conversions However there s a major issue with privacy and corruption of files Probably one of the most expensive is Flip Builder but it s more designed for creating e books Some of the options too charge users per program download PDFPublisher com on demand

  • The Most Common Lending Club Complaints Explained
    on internet forums it is often because they did not get a loan However Lending Club funded over 1 2 million in loans during the last quarter of 2015 so many people with decent credit do get granted loans Myth 2 Lending Club Loans Are Cheap It Depends on Your Definition of Cheap Current Lending Club rates range from 5 32 to 31 89 and while most borrowers would like to think they fall on the lower end of the range most of the loans issued by Lending Club were rated C or higher meaning the interest rates were between 11 99 and 31 89 Some Lending Club complaints seen online are from customers who are unhappy with the fees but those fees are disclosed when you apply for the loan as well as on a public page on Lending Club s website While A rated borrowers and some B rated borrowers may pay less most Lending Club borrowers will pay a 5 origination fee on top of the interest rate That origination fee is deducted from the amount borrowed before the money ever hits your account In other words if you ask to borrow 10 000 and the origination fee is 5 only 9 500 is deposited in your account but you will have to repay and pay interest on the entire 10 000 If you are late with payments or if Lending Club is unable to automatically draw your payment from your account each month additional fees will be incurred Lending Club loans may not be cheap but the fees are reasonable compared to the alternative of carrying high balances on high interest credit cards Myth 3 Investors Should Try to Find Safe Loans Safe Loans Don t Pay Well If you read blogs about investing with Lending Club you are sure to come across an article like this where the author describes a conservative strategy and then justifies it by pointing to the low number of defaults loans the borrowers do not fully repay in his or her portfolio However these bloggers then complain that their returns do not approach those touted by Lending Club One person generally considered an expert on Peer to Peer Lending is Peter Renton of Lend Academy He analyzed several common filters people use and concluded the important lesson is this Don t rely on what you think should be correct when investing There is enough loan history for investors to see what has and hasn t worked in the past I think investors should base their investment decisions on data and not on a hunch that may or may not be true The thing to remember is that the goal of Lending Club is to price loans appropriately Those loans their data shows have a high chance of defaulting have higher interest rates than those their data shows have a low chance of defaulting Like my brother the used car salesman said I can make money lending money to any group
