CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH BILLING ADDRESS

Postby booy10 » Sat Feb 20, 2016 9:51 am

Hello, i have trouble when buying clothes or shoes on US websites, as they require an US billing address, i have an US shipping address (which is my friend's house, he will keep things I buy online). The point is that they require an US billing address ... what can i do with this ??

A billing address is the address that you registered with the VISA card , am I right ??

How can I have an US billing address ? when i do not live in the USA.
Thank you for every one of you answers

Hmm. Wish I had a better answer, but it may help to ask AMEX directly. Either call, or use their online Live Chat option under the Help menu. I'm curious to know the answer so let us know if you find out.

I don't know if there is an answer. You may be able to set up a UPS box but that may be illegal if you don't already have a US address. I don't really know. I think the short answer is that you can't have a US billing address if you don't have a US address...

That's actually what I was thinking too...

The simplest way of looking at it is that if anyone could just make a US address, the dynamic of crime that it would allow would be tremendous and it just doesn't make sense to allow.

I think you could probably just make up an address and make it your billing address but there are obvious risks associated with that...
