Hi There!

 

Wondering how people are making Amazon MP3 purchases without a US credit card. I know I saw someone say they used their onesmart airnz card, but what US address do you put for it when it wants billing address?

Can you use Amazon credit?  I purchase movies by using my NZ amazon account and buying an Amazon gift card which you then send to my US based account.

Sign up to YouShop (free) and pop your Portland address in. Works for me.

Well both my Address and Billing address are in the US, and I am using my onesmart and it still fails. Are you connected via vpn or dns when you make the purchase?

Tried that and VPN didn't help either. Tried using the youshop address, still no luck. Not sure what you could be doing differently.

Have you moved NZ dollars over to US dollars on the Onesmart card?

Yep I have 3 currencies loaded. I can't see in Amazon how to specify which currency it takes from but assume USD by default.
