Amazing Experiences at the PAYPAL 101 Live E-Commerce Workshop


I really enjoyed attending to Ebay Queen Ms. Eireen Diokno-Bernardo's PAYPAL 101 Live E-commerce Workshop yesterday, September 17, 2011 at UnionBank Plaza. The venue is great, especially with the nice tables and chairs, overflowing coffee, snacks, and candies.

Ms. Eireen, owner of is an awesome presenter and trainer. Ms. Eireen's style is so informative, lively and jolly. She truly connects to her audience and looks after their welfare.

Thanks to my buddy Edison Victorino for inviting me to this event!

I learned more on the role of PayPal in the bigger picture of E-commerce.

PayPal enables us to pay through the Internet, send money, and accept payments without revealing your financial information, such as bank account and credit card information.

Whenever we want to make an online payment, we don't have to pull out our credit card or type our billing information every time.

I also learned that here in the Philippines, we can save a lot of valuable time, service charges, and effort if we would choose to apply for a UnionBank EON Visa Card and link it to our PayPal account.

Thanks to Ms. Eireen's explanation on the definition of E-commerce:

The online seller gets paid first before delivering services or goods (both tangible and intangible/digital products). The good news is PayPal makes it easier for us, seller and buyers, to participate in today's E-commerce.

There are three (3) kinds of PayPal account: 

  • Personal
  • Premier
  • Merchant

As of now, I have a Premier account, and I am already imagining the possibilities of achieving a Merchant account in just a few months.

Extreme Bonus! 

Khoa Bui, an author, speaker and entrepreneur, born in Vietnam and raised in Australia, was a special guest speaker during this same event! Thanks to Ms. Eireen for inviting Khoa to PayPal 101. The title of Khoa's presentation and workshop is

The 2nd Income Stream: Discover the Secrets to Building another Online Income Stream Into Your Life By Creating Your Very First Digital Product and Selling It Online.

I finally met my friend Khoa in person, and I was happy that he immediately recognized me upon hearing my name. Later on, Khoa wrote in his email to me:

It was great meeting you too! When I saw you and you said “Mannix” I instantly knew who you were hahaha

On Digital Products

What's great about digital products (such as e-books, audio recordings, videos, and newsletters):

  • People consume a lot of information on a particular topic that interests them
  • Low-cost
  • Highly profitable
  • Low overhead
  • No physical storage and delivery needed
  • Instant download

Discover Your Passion

Khoa helped us on how to discover our passion in life - which is one of the key ingredients in creating your own digital product. He also guided us through short but powerful activities in determining what we want to write about our passion.

Moreover, Khoa talked about the importance of having your own Blog, creating Sales Letters, and practical resources on how to create titles and headlines.

Khoa is a great presenter who talks straight from the heart. Here's an excerpt of what I emailed him:

Hello Khoa! It was a pleasure meeting you in person. You did a very splendid presentation. You prepared it well and made it look so easy when you delivered it.
