    Buying seeds with credit card

    I’ve seen the discussion on several different threads. The way my bank works is they automatically deny any charges from China or Europe, I don’t remember who I ordered from now but I even called my credit card and told them I was going to have a charge coming in from the UK and it was still denied. So a lot of the problems people are having are due to what bank their card is issued from.

    I feel like pre-paid credit cards are an easy fix for this. I just use a regular credit card and then pay it off. It's basically like using my bank card. Only ones I can't use are the Visa cards

      I was going to suggest the prepaid cards as well. Keeps a bit of a firewall between the purchase and your accounts.

        I tried to use my credit card but couldn't get it to go through so I ended up going the Bitcoin route. I found a machine nearby and used cash to buy Bitcoins. Ended up working really well. Not sure if that's an option for you but may be something to look into. I also tried buying Bitcoin online but they wanted to use a bank card or account and I didn't feel comfortable with it. I felt transferring cash for Bitcoin was the better method.

          I love bitcoin when I buy from Seedman in Europe, but I had no problem using my Visa to buy seeds on PacificSeedBank in the US.

            I send cash or a check if they take it, that's all i've ever used. I've not been ripped off yet. I use New420Guys seeds. Same with overseas cash in a birthday card or some random card, really never had issue. I've not bought overseas in close to 2yrs now so i'm sure the issues are always banking and getting around the legalities.

              anyone tried High Supplies seeds? there prices look very good, and they accept credit cards. I ordered from seedsman, my bank rejected, and immediately sent me a text, if i wanted to accept the charges, said yes, and it went right through. that was at the end of 2018. I hear seedsman has issues now, and wouldn't buy from them.

                If you're in the US, I'd recommend https://www.greybeardseeds.com/. I bought my last batch of seeds from them with a credit card, and had zero issues. They have some of the best prices and flat rate shipping to the US ($5). Ordered on a Friday and had them the following Saturday. Everything was in the breeder packaging, I Bought six seeds and they threw in two for free. Their selection is top notch too.

                  My last purchase from Seedsman was with Bitcoin. No issues except for USPS losing or confiscating the package near Chi-town. Seedsman sent its replacement gift wrapped the next time. I am damn near done buying seeds for a while unless a few certain ones come available.
                  Fourth state-sanctioned grow. This time for seeds. Six Ghost Train Haze (Rare Dankness) seedlings plus a bonus GTH in coco - waiting to see how many boys/girls.
                  4'X4' flower tent, AC Infinity 4" fan and filter, Advanced Platinum P4-XML2 LED
                  RDWC six grow buckets and a reservoir.

                  Four Skunk #1 seedlings (Sensi) plus one in coco
                  Advanced Platinum P-300 LED
                  3'X3' tent RDWC four grow buckets and a reservoir.

                  Aurora Soul nutrients - Grow, Bloom, Infinity, Big Swell & PeaK.

                  Side projects in coco: Flowering out moms of Black Widow, Acapulco Gold, Purple Haze & Laughing Buddha plus four Purple Haze clones cut from mom before 12/12 flip.

                  On deck: BC Mango, Tuna God, Bubba God, DP Blueberry, Cinderella 99 or Mother's Finest regs or a mix of feminized stuff.

                    Hah! That's what we all say: I don't have to buy seeds: I can take it or leave it... Until the shakes set in... ;-}
