Hi!
Does anyone know that If I live in the UK, can I make a telephone order to any of the stores in the US? Can I use my UK credit card, and have the item shipped to my friend's place in the US.?
Many thanks:idea:

Hi Boeing I'm pretty sure you can do this - I've done it lots of times. The only difficulty is that merchants in the US like to verify that your billing address is correct, and in Australia where I'm from there are privacy laws that mean the banks won't give out that info to merchants. There are a few ways I've got around this:
1. the store sends me a credit card authorisation form, I scan it and send it back via email or fax
2. The store rings my bank and while I'm on the phone with both bank and store, I go through security questions then I get the bank to verify my account over the phone
3. I change my residential address to my friends address in the US temporarily so it goes through, then change it back.
Good luck!
