I am Canadian. I use a Canadian CC. When I buy lindens, LL converts my purchase to US dollars before it reaches my CC. This is fine if I feel the conversion is a fair one. I would rather my CC company does the exchange from USD to CAD since LL's conversion rate is not representative of the current market or allow CC's to be charged in USD and let the CC companies make the conversion. LL needs to make the conversion rate is closer to the conversion of a CC that charges if it was charged in USD from the beginning or allow USD to be charged directly to the card. My last purchase, which my CC would have charged me a total of 1.32 percent to to convert USD to CAD (this is when the global market had it sitting at 1.295 percent), I was charge close to 1.42 percent by LL.
Okay so I been on Second Life for about 2 years now going on 3 and I've had never had an issue until now...I had a bank card from PNC Bank and that worked pretty fine but I am no longer with them anymore due to my personal financial problems I've had in the past trying to find a good job...Recently I switched over to another bank and everything is good I even called the bank and had them take the block off from me buying things from the UK...after I did that I was able to add my card to my billing information on my account...for some reason it wont let me buy any lindens so I wanted to know is that because I have to wait a few days for them to approve the bank I have now? Or does that mean they just don't accept my credit card at all? FYI I've tried doing it through paypal as well I even had a good balance in my account and on my card.
