I had problems with buying a share at SU... basically my parents have got amercan express credit cards...whereas when at sight you fill up the information it doesnt have an option for american express... my mom has a visa electron debit card...and altho the site did have a visa electron option its just not accepting the payment...
Can anyone help me out??

It's a Switch card for young 'uns
im getting confused.. switch and solo are different cards just like american express and visa are right?? therefore youd obviously need a solo or switch card to use that option?

Solo cards are decent accepted pretty much every where now, plus you dont have an overdraft limit, so no chance of paying it back.

Solo and switch cards are what they use a lot here amol, they arent available in India so thats not an option for you. The people who recommended them probably assumed you're in the UK as well.

I cant really think of any other options for you... probably just have to wait for the reply to your mail

or if you know someone that has a visa/mastercard/solo/switch ask them to pay for you and then pay them in cash or something?
