    Vinted Return Shipping: How to get reimbursed by PayPal?

    If you don’t have a PayPal account yet, I can sponsor you. Click here to get 5€ discount for your 1st order (> 10€) Following some disappointing orders, I had to send the products back to the Vinted sellers. The problem: Vinted does not cover the return shipping costs. But, fortunately, these purchases were made with PayPal, which offers additional coverage. As a result, if Vinted reimburses me for what I paid the seller, PayPal reimburses me for the fees I had to pay out of my own pocket to return the product to the seller. I explain how to do it in this article If you don’t have a…

    Raspberry Pi 4: which adapter to connect it to a VGA screen?

    Having purchased a Raspberry Pi 4 for geeking a bit, I realized a bit too late that with its HDMI cable I couldn’t connect it to my VGA screen. So I went to the FNAC without much conviction in search of a female HDMI to male VGA adapter. Without success. Back home to order it on the internet. You have to be careful because for some reason, not all adapters will necessarily work with a Raspberry. I finally find one on Amazon from the VicTsing brand(Amazon link). The description states that it is compatible and some comments from buyers confirm it. I receive it a few days later and am…

    After I got my MacBook back from repair, it started crashing and restarting randomly on its own The problem suddenly occurred during a normal use: the screen would freeze before rebooting by itself.

    [Reviews] Vinted, my Shopping Experience

    Do you know the Marie Kondo method of tidying up, which consists in keeping around only those things that bring us joy? After seeing some very nice things on the Instagram of a Mario Kondo consultant, I realized that I no longer liked my clothes. Being teleworking in old Mickey Mouse pajamas with a hole in them, I’m not very motivated anymore. Before, I didn’t realize it because I was absorbed in my travels. Being surrounded by beautiful landscapes, I didn’t need to be surrounded by beautiful clothes. Now that I’m not at home anymore, I look at my little wardrobe and I find its contents super sad and super…

    Viva Aerobus: boarding pass, tax for non-residents

    When we booked our flight from Mexico City to Las Vegas via the airline Viva Aerobus, there were two pieces of information that were a little anxious. A tax for non-residents A message indicated that non-residents would have to pay a tax at the counter. I couldn’t find any information on the amount of this tax. In the end, we had nothing to pay on our international flight. I don’t know what the situation is regarding domestic flights. The boarding pass When you try to do the checkin online, it is clearly indicated that you must absolutely have your boarding pass (having printed or downloaded it) otherwise you will have…

If your airline is listed, it may be safer to choose another option. This black list is updated every six months…
