I just got an email from Autodynamic telling me they are unable to process international Visa or MC!
So being new to this Stateside order gubbins, what would be the best way to pay for my 5th Gen bits?
What is this paypal like?
What the hell is a Western Union transfer?
I hope someone can help, I have run out of bits to fit to the Lude!

paypal only works within the United States, i believe.
Western Union is a company that'll wire cash for you over to the company in which you wish to pay, for a fee, of course.

Yeah, paypal has a little British flag on their site, so I guess I could use them!
What is the standard percentage they are charging?
Good come back incase the package never arrives yeah?
Malken! What are you thinking of getting?

that's odd...a company that only accepts domestic visa and mc.
well say if you are visiting the USA and need to buy something. the retailer is not going to know if it is an international card unless its cash register system tells them, which i honestly doubt.
i would be weiry about this (i.e. the retailer). there should not be much to it International or not.

I think it is more a case of something being down rather than them not accepting it!

well...just to add to my other comment...
going thru paypal will not give you the same security features as going thru with a major credit card.

i'm not trying to say anything bad about autodynamic or anyother shop for that matter.
just as a consumer dealing internationally, you should always protect yourself. paypal will leave you hanging, your visa won't.
this is my personal experience.

actually, it's a little tricky to understand.
i had to call visa to verify.

basically it comes down to the fact that paypal is a third-party. its only obligation is to facilitate the transfer of money, NOT the exchange of money for products.
therefore, visa cannot do a chargeback against paypal b/c paypal has fullfilled its obligation of tranfering money (NOT the exchange of goods).
