So, here is the deal. I live in the UK. and have been calling around for this item i want to get my sister for Christmas, i found it in Paris, but they don't accept VISA?? ONLY AMEX? Is this really so? I asked if I could have the item shipped and he said.. that' going to be a problem, only AMEX! Has anyone paid with Visa and still had an item shipped? Do they do wire transfer or anything else? I have just aplied for an amex now, but I'm scared it's going to take too long time. the store is Champs-Elysees.
