Unable to use paypal

    Hello there!

    I really wanted to upgrade my blog and tried to buy the ‘Custom Design’ option.
    In the Netherlands it’s not common for us to have a creditcard, we use a diffrent kind of card, that’s why I’d put some money on my Paypal-account so I can purchase the upgrade that way.
    The only thing now is now I’m forced to insert a creditcard number… Which I don’t have. Even the option to purchase something via my account instead of creditcard is redirecting me to a creditcard form or WordPress.

    Why did this change? Cause in the past I bought my own domain and everything went just fine. Now it’s impossible for me to buy anything because you’re forcing people to use creditcard (which again) I do not have.

    Isn’t it possible to pay via iDeal or something? This is really frustrating!

    Hoping someone is able to help me out!

    The blog I need help with is cstateofmind.com.



    I am sorry about your situation. However, below are the only accepted means of payment.

    WordPress.com uses PayPal as the payment processor, and as such, can only accept payment from countries they support: https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/

    If for whatever reason, they have chosen to block payment from your country, you will not be able to purchase an upgrade here unless you have a source of payment outside of your country.

    In addition to major credit cards Mastercard, VISA, American Express, Discover, and PayPal https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/ WordPress.com can accept echecks and some debit cards.

    The debit card must have a VISA or Mastercard symbol on it, and should work just like a credit card when selecting the VISA or Mastercard option on the payment form, even though it’s a debit card.

    More about echecks here:

    WordPress.com also accept Bitcoin for payment of certain upgrades ( bitcoin cannot be used for domain and premium theme purchases) – you can learn more here: http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/11/15/pay-another-way-bitcoin/
