Title says it all. I am in Canada and many of the game cards aren't available to me. Guess the $65.00 (app) I used to spend on the game will go to something more useful from now on.

Yes, Paypal only. I used the credit card option before and amazing that number was used to buy unauthorized transactions in Europe.

I am not a fan of Paypal, but I guess I may just have to bow to the now broken system. I wonder though, when you improve something, isn't that supposed to make it better?

Thanks for the replies guys. See you on the battlefield!

Wargaming doesn't seem interested in responding to this issue.  No one seems to think it is important enough to respond to customer inquiries about.

same happened to me 5 years ago, used paypal for a long time buying and selling on ebay...  CC company called me one day to see why I was buying airline tickets in Paris France, I was at home, they had no record of me buying a ticket to France and thought it was strange.  Never will use paypal ever again.. when I paid for gold here it was always debit card..
looks like I will be getting ultimate gaming cards at Shoppers or Wal-Mart.

Yes, please bring back the debit. I like how instant it is, with Paypal I find it takes for ever before the money goes from my bank into my Paypal account.

yea it takes a long time as I switched to that method for paypal, then had a seller stiff me. they did nothing and because it was a debit payment I could not get a refund.. that was the last time I used them. even had a paypal debit card for when I travelled in the us.

If you have a decent credit card I recommend generating one-time use numbers for transactions like WoT.

I'd really be against using a debit card. You have no recourse if there's issues. Unless you guys have special accounts with your banks..  or things are very different in Canadia.

I like the fact that I can just pull out my wallet and pay. Not have to search a damn store for them.

WGNA sends emails with records so if there are issues you can check them.

What does that have to do with anything? I'm just saying use a secure payment type! Debit cards bad, credit cards better, one time use numbers for credit cards best!

Well power i live down here in the states so i'm not shure how readily available they are up in canada but i know down here they are practically sold everywhere including the gas stations, and i'm not disagreeing with you on it being a pain however for the hassle i gotta admit they are more then worth it especially since you load only the amount you want to spend on it and not a penny more which if it does get stolen a theif would only get at the most 60 bucks or so for a new premium tank (example) before the bank catches on instead of your entire life savings.

I've spent enough using the debit function to trust it. I do not own a credit card either as I am only 19 and do not want one.

So what you are saying is I should go buy 6 damn cards if I want $100 in gold?( its like $103 with tax, not sure if they get taxed, if not 5). That's a little silly don't you think
