    Hi

    Why isn’t Pakistan listed as a country in the Country drop-down on the Credit Card payment field (on the domain mapping page)? How am I to pay for anything I wish to purchase on the website?

    I think it is silly for WordPress not to list it, when most other sites have it. I’ve just finished up setting WordPress on my custom domain, and when I realised the only way to map my current WordPress.com blog to it is to purchase a domain mapping plan from WordPress, I find that I can’t because my country isn’t listed on the form. How would I go about doing it?

    The blog I need help with is ayaz.wordpress.com.

    The two methods are either to use a prepaid card from another country or pay with bitcoin. WordPress uses PayPal to process payments and are limited to taking credit cards fro PayPal-supported countries.

    I’m so sorry but your country Pakistan is not a PayPal supported country found on this list. WordPress.com uses PayPal as their payment processor, and as such, can only accept payment from countries they support: https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/

    PayPal have chosen to block payment from your country, so 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 accepts Bitcoin for payment of certain upgrades http://en.support.wordpress.com/bitcoin/

    Thanks for your responses. If I may ask, are you with official WordPress support?

    Neither me nor timethief are WordPress staff, these forums are mainly supported by volunteers, though staff do look in also.
