      I use the Cash GiftCards because the Purchase is a Gift or Gifted.
      Had some trouble with our Bank questioning payments after a royal commission and stronger enforcement of regulation. Just unfortunate.

      The Bank Transfer would be easiest and best for most people, especially in USA where it is "Marketed" for Medical Use.


      The Pre-loaded Cash GiftCard is just another option.

        Happy to hear, yes end year got a bit kaotic, i think global online bussines have grown a lot in the last two years.. That is something difficult to hand (customs & postal services), when Black Friday sales and Xmas gifts come together.

        A lot of people would not use Bit Coin type service.
        Not to argue the safety or complexity, it’s just a choice.
        Just a personal evaluation by a person such as me.

        Not everybody has a credit/debit card either.
        And you describe some financial provider issues.

        Personally I deal in cash and hold an offline, over the counter passbook account.

        I would choose, not to put money in an envelope, and if your cash is not the same as Country of purchase, it is not going to work.
        ----------------

        I asked another Company if they would except the full Dollar value of VISA, ETC Cash Gift Card.
        Suggesting additional seeds to make up value or a credit for future order.
        The best option being the additional seed.

        Why: Because the GiftCards come in even money values for the country where they were sold.

        Then there is currency conversion, costs and Charges.
        The idea is to not have small amounts of lost money left on cards that no one can use.

        The name on these cards might be CARD HOLDER, so there is no judgement or law to refuse a gift purchase.
        A Medical product Gift for Multiple Sclerosis sufferer, ETC.
        The Card should be basically anonymous.

        The Seed Company I asked never replied.
        It could be more trouble than worth.
        Just thought I would share thinking.

        Cheers


        Additional:
        VISA Gift Cards are accepted anywhere VISA payment is available.
        I have used the VISA Gift Cards for various international purchases.

        There has only been three problems that should not apply here.
        1/ Where company rules stipulate the product must be sent to Address on Card.
        2/ Where company uses the Card details as proof of Customer identity.
        3/ Where an account is assumed to be business, and transaction is stopped by accounts stating fraud risk.

        The third issue happened with Mouser Electronics Component Distributor.
        Once I explained the situation with Mouser over phone, the transaction continued.

        There are Cash Gift Card available for other financial providers, the offerings have changed every few years.
        Check your Countries offerings if interested.



        Thanks for your thinkings, will drop to the team, they always working to get the best safety ways with less bank/govern issues.. unfortunately transactions to get seeds remain a big problem internationally.
