    Default Can Run8 be purchased outside of the U.S?

    It's just something i need to get off my chest, I live in the UK. And i've been interesting in purchasing Run8. But the only question is, can it be purchased outside of the U.S? $50 compared to the average UK pound is £35 IIRC. I know it cannot be purchased via PayPal.

    I think you just need a major credit card (Visa, Mastercard, etc) and it should go through fine since they're not shipping you a physical product.

    Yes but they don't take Paypal so as noted above you need to pay by debit or credit card. You also need to be about to download fairly quickly as the download link has a limited validity (so don't forget to burn the files to disc or a thumb drive).

    For some reason 3DTS not affected by (or disregard) the BNSF licensing issue which has stopped DTG from selling any products with that company's image outside the USA!

    Their website doesn't accept UK Debit Cards, for some unknown reason, as that is just as good as cash, it won't allow me to use mine, anyway, and never has since Day 1, so, you need to double check exactly what plastic you can use that will go through without a hitch.

    So Seagoon are you truly descended from "Prisoners Of his Majesty" .....or are you from "£10 POM" stock?

    If you read "Liberty’s Exiles: The Loss of America and the Remaking of the British Empire" by Maya Jasanoff (a Coolidge Professor of History at Harvard University) you'll see that not ALL the original American colonist actually supported "the revolution".

    Also (sadly topically ) she suggests that the much quoted "Second Amendment" was brought in to enable supporters of the revolution to arm themselves in order to dominate/intimidate/bully those who either didn't support separation from Britain or who were just apathetic towards the revolt. Not as is usually quoted to defend against the British. A fascinating read on how those who left America went on to other British Colonies and helped form the Empire.

    BTW (as Seagoon will know) many folk don't realise that the first FREE settlers arrived in Oz only 6 years after the first Convict settlers departed from the UK.

    Back on topic It's often reported that Debit cards are not accepted which is even more odd as many are issued by the same companies (on behalf of UK banks) that issue the banks credit cards

    If a person doesn't have a credit card then possibly think about buying a prepaid visa card at the local Tesco or WallyWorld in the USA.

    Father's side, free settlers, from Grantham in Lincolnshire, aboard the "Canton", arrived Adelaide 1846.
    Mother's side, from England to New Zealand (Wellington), 1851.

    Both families used PayPal to pay their fares and had no problems with the transactions.

    I wasn't aware that PayPal was such a venerable institution! :-D
