Because I dont have any kind of credit card is there any other way to get Pe - 2? I am online every day in popular servers and I am already blocked out from some because I cant get 405. Am I sunk for good? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Not sure if debit card or anything else is an option. I'll find out when I go to make the purchase on the weekend.

I'm surprised actually with the numbers of people who don't have credit cards. I'm not slighting you or making fun of you or anyone else in any way but it just shocks me. Admittedly the credit card is new for me...although I'm a "youngin" by comparison to most of the boards regulars...but I've had one for a few years now. Getting used to it...even made some online purchases prior to this despite my cautious reservations.

I don´t have a credit card myself and paid via a bank transfer (or whatever that is called in English). The Ubi-Shop gave me a bank account number to which I could transfer the money. I did it on April 28th and got my activation key today. So the only disadvantage to having a credit card is that you have to wait a few days until you can download it.

I'll have to find out how to do that then...Thanks

I have a bank card, like the one you use in the ATM, the debit/credit card type thing.
It worked just fine, it'll take the money out of your bank account.
Oddly enough, i had no problems at all with the whole deal getting it installed and everything.
Best of luck!

I this a Visa debit card we're talking about. Is it the one listed in the payment options?

Debit Card works just fine. Mine is VISA and debit only, still worked.
Even a child can get one as even a child can get a bank account and the card is standard.
Not all debit cards are VISA but every major brand seems to be allowed by UBI.

Use it like a credit card for internet. If the money is not in your account and it is not
business day then be aware that the transaction will probably go through and you will get
hit for overdraw same as with a check as well as the purchase. You must be responsible to
know your balance or stop taking the money if you don't. The system is not always so fast
as one guy on our TV news found out, he thought if he could get money out all weekend then
it must be there to take even if he knew he had less there on Friday. So be smarter.

Your debit card will have a VISA/MasterCard number on the front of it which IS just like a credit card number. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

A debit card is simply a normal savings/cheque account card that has been given a VISA or MASTERCARD number in addition to its normal account number. Not all accounts have this facility, depends on the bank.

You use it just like a normal credit card .. the only difference is you are only allowed to spend real money you have deposited in the account .. no actual credit.

In the case of UBI you would enter the details of one of these cards just as if it was a normal credit card .. you would hit the "credit" option.

If your card is not a "debit" card you will need to do a bank transfer to the UBI account instead.
