martyyn: mattRSK: It asks for my CC details when I try to sign up for the free trial. I can use the free version because all that needed was my Facebook details, but if I want the free trial of Premium it want the CC details.
Glengus: Yes its a BNZ Visa. But Ive also tried with a Kiwibank Mastercard and thats always declined too.
myopinion: My primary currency was set to GBP (I buy plenty from ebay.co.uk) so I changed it to NZD but no dice. As for the VPN, thats something I hadnt thought about. One of the machines is set up with unblockus but the laptop Im on now isnt on anything.
I know there have been online payment issues with nz credit cards this week, particularly bnz ones, that might be your problem! Some websites are saying contact your bank to get added to a list of allowed cards!
