    Hi,

    I use my Ame Express for everything online (very happy with it). I wanted to buy and APP priced in Euros but my card was "not valid" or something. The developer suggested something with PayPal (which I don't like), but is this the only choice?

    What then is the next option / best (most secured) way of doing this?

    I wasn't able to use AMEX either for the foreign currency purchases. I used the Visa rebate card sent to me by Verizon for my Droid for my google checkout purchases.

    hmmm.... interesting, all the deals Verizon comes up with. I bought mine at Costco last week... No credit cards though :)

    I'll be interesting to see how others do these purchases... Probably PayPal. I don't really know why I never liked this Co, but they are still around... So maybe they are not so bad. We'll see.

    TIA.

    Visa debit card off your checking account? Most of them work, unless you're with Podunk Savings and Trust.

    I forgot to mention the option of a pre-paid Visa/MC credit card from other sources. The Verizon rebate card was part of the "new every 2" years promotion that they have.

    Hello,

    Yes I have a debit / credit card I could use... It's just I'm so PARANOID! :)... That I simply don't want any of my card numbers floating around in Europe...

    What about PAY PAL?... does that work? I believe this is the less expensive option for the developers...

    If you have a Paypal Debit card then Yes.....Even the rechargeable visa cards from walmart work.

    Even if you did use your CC, your transaction is still protected via your company. The great part about CC transactions is the safety you get with your bank.

    Oh yes... I love AmeEx for that reason. Sure most cards protect you, but AE is special... any little problem and they deal with the company directly. Love it.

    But, in this case, for some reason, the system did not take my card... So the guy gave me his PP account and we did it.

    Thx.
