What is going on with that? It fails to go thru. Just says there is an error. So I just wasted money depositing onto this card.

Maybe I can try registering this card to my Amazon.

Make sure you call AmEx and tell them you are okay with international purchases on your card.  Any CC purchase from worldoftanks is an international purchase.

I know i had that issue once before with a different card. It forced to use my Paypal.

I use either Pay Pal, Amazon, or Karma Koin to make payments to WG, when I do.

It's possible your card doesn't have international transactions available. Even buying from NA, the transaction still goes through to Belarus.

The banking chain runs from the purchase to a bank on Malta, then it goes to Belarus.  There are US banking restrictions on doing business with banks on Malta and most US banks pitch a fit if you try to purchase thru a bank there.  I recommend Paypal.

I've had good luck with Subway cards.   They are available at a lot of places, can be combined and have always worked with WG for me.

If it we're a "Russian Express" card it would be just fine! Lol

American Express directly has never worked for me. I just attach it to Amazon Payments and go through like that.

A real Amex Card works overseas no problem. No need to call anyone. Works first time, every time. It's the preloaded (gift) cards and bank Amex Cards that are problematic.
