Since WG will not allow Karma Koin, during this event, I am looking for a different way to pay for the Renegade as I am currently at a 20% discount, with my limited play time.  I currently have my bank card linked to my Pay Pal account but can't not allowed by my bank to transact business with any companies where WG is located.  So I have been using Karma Koin for this purpose but since it's not accepted, I need another way to pay, to get the vehicle.  Will a prepaid Vanilla Gift Card, a prepaid Pay Pal card, or something like that do the trick.  Thanks.

You know that there is PayPal credit now. So link it to you checking account, then pay with credit, and pay off with your bank.

I have a separate bank account for online purchases, and link it to my Paypal. I only trnasfer what I need into that account before each purchase.

I use a plugin from a site called Privacy.com.  It's lightweight and works by issuing a card to

Bank account that hides your information.  If the card gets compromised, you can delete it

and it instantly disappears.  It's really cool and I've no issues using it.  I have yet to migrate all

myinternet payments to the service.  Think of it as a VPN for banking...

 

I also have a referral code that gets you a free $5 credit on yourfirst purchase, so PM and

ask for it.

 

Disclaimer:  I get a credit of $5 as well for it.

Well guys, my bank made a change about 2 years ago, hooked up with another major bank with highly restrictive policies, and now, War Gaming and it's titles are now persona non-Grata and I can no longer do this.  This is why I have been using Karma Koin instead and it has been great, except for events like this, where they do not allow you to use cards such as Karma Koin, PlaySafe, and others.  So I have also, just now popped the question to Pay Pal and am awaiting a response from their customer support.  I have already tagged customer support about this and it was a waste of time, something to do with refunds, which really make no sense as I can't help but wonder what they do about it normally.  No response from them on that one though.  Thanks for the thoughts and suggestions.

Years ago I hooked up my Visa card to PayPal when I was buying lots of stuff off of eBay. I've left it so and have never had an issue with it.

Just get a credit card all ready, so long as you pay it off every month and don't go spend crazy they are not bad.

I use a credit card too, did not like the idea of linking my checking account to it. IMHO using a CC gives you one more layer of protection.. Well that and I get 1% cash back...  Have had a PayPal account set up like this for over 10 years and never had any issues whatsoever. 

EDIT: It just occurred to me, have had a PayPal account closer to 20 years......

I had no issues until my bank did what they did now I can't use my bank card here, anymore.

VISA linked to PayPal for several years. Never had an issue and the things you buy get credited almost instantly.
