Can't Donate with Canadian Visa

Post by BASIC Bob » Fri Apr 01, 2016 7:03 am

When I tried to donate, I got a message rejecting my card due to country of origin. I get that on one other site as well, but they have a work-around, sending 3% to a broker. Any advice?

Obviously you are using a Canadian Visa not the Credit Card so it won't work. April Fools!

Very good. Now, it is April 2, though, and I'm hoping for a serious reply.

I am tired of these "April fools". April 1st is becoming my day without internet and going out... It is just stupidity every where.

I can't get it to work this month with a US Visa either. Bet you money pay-pal that handles transactions will take the donation from a pay-pal account.

If you have a PayPal account, you can, in many countries, link your bank account to it on the PayPal website. That is how I pay by PayPal as I do not own any credit card as well.
