Outpost SVC has a number of recommendations to assist you with the physical purchase of goods in the USA, UK, EU, Russia and China, should you run into international payment difficulties, such as:
- International credit/debit cards not accepted by retailer or seller
- Retailers or Auction sites only accept a domestic billing address
Add a secondary address to your bank or credit card account
Most major banks now allow you to have a secondary address logged against your account. Simply contact your local branch, and request to add your dedicated Outpost address as a secondary residence.
Purchase a US based gift card
Many US retailers now offer gift cards from Visa, Mastercard and American Express. Simply purchase a gift card online and upon receipt at the local Outpost facility, we will provide you with all the details to register it. Once you have the card enabled, you can use it to make purchases in the US, listing your Outpost address as both the ship to, and billing address. An example of where you can purchase these cards is Walmart.
