Thanks again. I’ll message the Convoy Store (Simon) shortly. Happy to pay the fees too of course.

Issue I have is that I dont have a VISA card nor immediate access to any of the other payment methods. I do prefer Paypal as it’s been a reliable option in the past too.

You guys should start using fintechs like Revolut or Transferwise.
They have the best conversion rates, no fees and let you create virtual cards.
Paypal are just plain thieves and should be completely avoided. I was getting paid though Paypal and lost 8% just to fees, and on top of that transfers weren’t instant. And the sender lost a lot too because he had to do a conversion at a ridiculous rate from Paypal. They basically fucked us both for more than 5 years but in the last year they went bonkers with the fees

I’ve been ok with paypal for many years but always interesting to check out other options. I’ve never come across Revolut or Transferwise but will read up on them.

I found oddly that in progressing an order if my address is blank the Paypal Option appears, however after entering and confirming my address it the dissapears leaving CC and Web Money option only. Possibly think my address isn’t legit.

Revolut doesnt work worldwide.
Paypal works in 200+ countries, in some of them you met limitations but they work even if dont have banking license in the country.
Revolut (as dangerous competitor in bank industry) have met problems with growing, many countries give acceptance for work only if they have banking license (the other option – improve laws with modern money trasfer rules, but most governments are not intrested in this).
To use revolut today, you need to be a citizen or have a working visa in:
European Union
Swizerland
Australia
Canada
Singapore
United States
