Using mail forwarder, but canít pay from outside USA?
« on: March 18, 2018, 05:37:07 AM »
Trying to take advantage of the weekend st Patrickís day special, but wonít accept my Australian credit card. I have a mail forwarding service to send it to me if payment is accepted...

A few years ago, I got around this as for some reason it would let me buy a gift voucher with my Aussie card, but that ainít working either.

How do other people do it?

Cheers,
B

Which vendor?  And often, you cannot use a foreign credit card, especially online.  There are services like https://www.usunlocked.com/service/  but I have never used them.  What about PayPal?

Acurite.com is the vendor.  They only seem to have a credit card option.

Feh.  Acurite is as stoopid (tm) with payment methods as it is with shipping out of the US.  Looks to me like you will have to get one of those virtual credit cards I listed or get a US friend to do it for you.
