What kind of bank doesn’t allow international transactions? I could understand flagging it as potential fraud if you don’t normally buy from non-US merchants, but once you verify that it was you, they should allow it. What if you need to travel? Will they let you use your card then? I have never had a problem using my US credit cards with Envato.

+1 get new bank!

Well this stinks. I even went to the store looking at prepaids and they all say “For use in the U.S. only.”. So I guess I am going to need a new store outside of Themeforest until they loose enough business to offer some sort of payment method witin the U.S.

OK FIGURED IT OUT!!!!!! Anyone else in the U.S. with this issue I found a way around this. So instead of purchasing a template directly and then selecting PayPal or Skrill for payment which in my case declined.

Do this….. First create a Skrill account and verify everything including your identity. Then attach your U.S. bank card to the account. Then deposit the amount you want to get on Themeforest into Skrill. Once that is all done, then go to your Themeforest account and do a deposit for the same amount. Select Skrill only say you already have an account. Put in your Skrill credentials and bingo! Themeforest credit.

Stupid workaround but hey…. Whatever works :-)

Admin may want to pin something about this on the forum for people in the U.S. who run into issues.
