Need answers to those who know..

Postby Trickster26 » Wed Jul 14, 2010 3:08 pm

Hi! I made a purchase on the internet using my friends credit card ( with his permission of course..). But, the problem is, i put my name, address, etc on the billing information rather than to put my friends information because he is the one who owns the credit card. Will a money be deducted to my friends credit card or will it fail to charge?

The transaction will probably fail.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred

No, it depends on how the merchant submits the charges. If they use AVS (address verification system) then the transaction will almost certainly fail. If they use other means then it could go through but possibly with a higher discount fee to the merchant. Usually when you buy online the approval is immediate. If the card was accepted then you're fine. Your friend could also check his account a few days later and see if the charge posted.
