I have a Maestro card and want to pay with Paypal, but i need to choose a creditcard between Mastercard, Visa and American express. Since i dont have a creditcard, what option can I do to buy woot shirts. I live in The Netherlands.
Can someone reply me soon, before random shirt sell out. Thx
first, a disclaimer: i am clueless. i hope someone knowledgeable will come along and help. have you tried emailing woot directly to ask your question? you mite try email@example.com, they seem pretty helpful, although i don’t know if this is the best address to try.
i read that you want to pay with paypal, but don’t know how onerous using your debit card is. have considered using your maestro card directly to pay for the shirt? i think maestro is owned by mastercard, so perhaps you could try selecting mastercard and pay with your maestro card? unless you’ve already tried that…
I would definitely try selecting Mastercard and paying directly with the Maestro card. I, too, am largely clueless (and I also don’t know much about this payment issue, HEY-OOOO!), but I do know that Maestro is absolutely owned by Mastercard, and that my mother is always able to use her Mastercard debit card in Maestro-only ATMs abroad. So I would like to think that a Maestro would then logically work like a Mastercard over here in reciprocity? I dunno. Like no1 suggested, try it if you haven’t already.
did you try paying directly to woot (skipping paypal altogether) from your maestro card and selecting as “mastercard”? as a noted poster noted previously, maestro-only atms apparently accept mastercard, since they are the same company, so a reciprocal arrangement may work.
I do know from previous threads here that in order to use paypal it must be connected to an approved card, that is why this system doesn’t work. Although I guess a truly enterprising person could “convince” someone with a full card to assist in the paypal issue, possibly.
These are all old conversations, so my comment may be superfluous, but: 1. PayPal has both a debit and credit card available. 2. Any card that can be used for general payments (e.g., not a store card) should be usable as a credit or debit card. If it doesn’t specifically say MasterCard or Visa on it, just look for the logo–MasterCard has the Venn diagram/blue-and-red intersecting circles, while Visa has the black and gold stripes (top and bottom), respectively, to identify the type of major card.
