Well another call to the bank. As a global game one would think a subscription would be easy to pay for.... Seems not. Due to security changes in bank protocols after the Target Hack any transactions overseas have to be pre-authorized. Honestly i really hate paying with plex and i hate buying plex casue it takes more to buy than a regualr sub. So CCP us uptite Americans are asking for a way to pay a subscription fee in the US boarders without buying plex or having to call and get pre-authorizations for payments going over-seas.

I think that's a problem with your bank being literally ********, not a problem with CCP.

Just use paypal.

Sorry to break it to you, but the bank your using is indeed bad. Time to change your banking services to a more global bank, not the local county bank that you're using now.

I have a Target card and have no issues with my bank letting me pay for my non-plexed account. Maybe you just need a better bank?

Well another call to the bank. In a global economy, with the internet allowing us to buy things from all over the world, one would think a Bank would be able to deal with that.... Seems not.

Your Bank sucks! Call them, ask for this one payment that you make every month to a 'computer game company' gets placed on a white-list for you.

If they wont do it, tell them you want to change banks.

I'm willing to bet that they accommodate you.

The local credit union I'm using in the US has absolutely no problem paying my EVE subscription.

It's not the size of the bank, it's the level of paranoia.

Sounds like you want a bank which either has a one-time pad for credit card authorization or is using 3-D Secure.

Honestly it's time to change banks. My large bank is perfectly fine for International payments.

US resident... I don't have that problem with my bank either.

OP, are you beginning to see a pattern to these responses? Blink
