Since Visa, or parts of Visa, have decided to block bank cards from international transactions, it is currently impossible to use CCP's site to buy time with those cards. I have no idea how widespread this "all international transactions blocked" is, but it has been ongoing for days.

I think you are better of to petition this under billing or make a phone call with VISA. In anyway I doubt any of the GD forum dwellers can help you with your problem.

As I understand it, that would be enacted by the issuing institution (bank) rather than Visa. Your solution may be closer to home.

I am trying to provide a more helpful explanation as to why this is happening than the "you transaction has failed for some reason" give by the CCP site.

I doubtt I'm the only American who plays Eve or the only one with a Visa bankcard.

Any, the solution that I'm using is to buy an ETC code from an American site.

Its the bank you use, not visa. Call your bank and demand the ability for international transactions.
