    It's the same in Switzerland. You are only able to pay online by credit card, but not debit/maestro. Actually I think except for the EU it's like that every where...

    @Condor @Wack most banks offer something like a "virtual card" for online payments. It really can be a blessing for us folks in EU who don't have Visas

    @Wack it really sucks how they pretty much prevent EU citizens from trading with them though.. wouldn't the lost sales be a good enough incentive for these companies to start accepting Maestro?

    @dontPanic oh, interesting! When I get back to my bank during their business hours, I'll try to remember to ask the bank clerk about it. Thanks for mentioning this! 🙂

    Do they accept Diners Club? That's the only one I have and it keeps my spendings low, because no-FUCKING-body accepts it.

    @Condor Dang!

    I have this one, because it was free ten years ago over some special offer. They only started charging for it ~2 yrs ago. I guess I should cancel it and get a VISA or MC instead.

    In case of banking I'm quite proud of my country. We have in Poland one of the most advanced banking systems in the world.

    FWIW: they do accept debit, it's just that maestro has like zero marketshare in the US. While technically you can run maestro against the MC network, that I believe depends on payment processor, and I think that card processor is Stripe, judging by the UI. It's not so much the site's fault as Stripe not willing to offer it. If you had a actual MasterCard/Visa branded, it would work fine.

    Oh you have money in your bank account. We can't accept that, we need to have a system where you loan out money and pay it back with interest for the transfer to work.

    Fucking idiots.

    @hashedram it's not so, you can have also a visa/mastercard debit card, it's just that maestro it's not so internetionally recognised... On the other hand outside usa many shops don't accept american express credit card
