Alright, so I just decided I'm going to buy myself a fancy EVE shirt, click order, checkout, register blahblah.

Payment option: Credit card

Why is there nothing else other than credit card? I would have thought CCP would at least accept Debit cards, if not paypal too.

If your debit card is worth a damn it can also function as a credit card, usually backed by VISA.

Hmm, that I didn't know. It's a Solo card, so I'll have to look into that.

If I were you i'd try w/my checking debit card. As far as I know CCP accepts checking account debit cards but the option just doesn't say so. Been payin for everything from CCP on my Visa checking debit card at least a year now. Some don't accept non MC, Visa, etc debit cards tho. No idea about CCP on that. gl

Depends on where you live, here debits are separate, and hence you don't get the ridiculous interest rate of credit cards. Downside is it comes straight out of your savings. Then again my credit card has a debit feature too, so it's options city where I'm at.

Whee!

Anyway, sucks the store doesn't take anything other than credit card, but that's more of a function of the payment system CCP's chosen to go with.

Well if your british then it doesnt really matter. Ive been using my Lloyds tsb debit card here for years, but mine is visa. I dont believe they accept solo, but i could be wrong. I think solo is a third rate card anyway; move away from natwest and go to a real bank that charges n stuff:)

Oh believe me, I plan on moving away from natwest the instant I hit 18 (Not really much point in doing it before then).

So far I've been through 4 debit cards, most of them were non-working or simply stopped working for no reason what so ever, and they charge you something along the lines of 35 if you go even 5p overdrawn.

I *think* you can get a Tuxedo card under 18, pre pay credit card. My mates sister has one (she is a doll dosser and cant get anything better than electron card) and finds it really useful.

Yeah it could be done that way, but that kinda defeats the point. I can just use parents/friends credit card and give them the money, but that means going to the bank and withdrawing the cash to give it to them instead of paying for it myself directly.

AFAIK VISA Electron works just fine as both sub-payment and payment in the shop - at least I'm using mine for my subscription on EON and have previously used it to pay my subscription for EVE....

All we need now is a "Solo" option then ;)

Yep Visa Electrons will work fine, unfortunatly i bank with HSBC and have a switch/maestro debit card which CCP does not accept?!?

Very annoying as CCP is the only company i've come across that does not accept my card :(

I would have had the complete eon set, and them fancy maps if they did
