Not all Visa Cards are the same!!
Some cards will not be
accepted. Any bankcards from the following banks will not be accepted!!
Amegy Bank in Texas
Wells Fargo Everywhere
The reason is this. Merchants all over use a process called address
verification to verify that the card number they have received for an online order is really from a legit
The process works like this.
You the customer place an order and you provide a name and address for
shipping then, on a secure server, you provide your credit card number. The merchant then calls your bank
(based on the number you gave) and gives them the card number and the address on the order. The bank then says
yes its legit or no there is a problem. The bank never gives any other information and yet this simple procedure
saves lots of money for merchants and consumers by preventing fraud.
The above banks refuse to do address verification. Therefore some merchants,
including the owner of this website, refuse to do business with them.
