    Well, I loaded a $0.99 promo code for a domain name, but Paypal is no longer an option for payment. Since I have only a Visa Electron credit card, which is not accepted (only plain VISA I guess), I need someone to buy a specific domain for me and forward/gift/send it to my account somehow, if that is possible.

    I am going to pay anyone who can help me via Paypal the $1 and supply the promo code.

    So, is this possible?

    Most probably this code does not include PP payment and CC/DC is the only option. I have no idea, but this is their silly policy about some promotions.
    Just check the little text for the promo code. They explain the terms.

    Yep, I just found that out. However, the thing is that I can't pay by credit card either! I get this message:

    Umm, I don't have a VCC.
    If it matters, I'm from Romania. However, the coupon code works, but the credit card won't.

    Does the code include that it is for specific countries only (check the small font tooltip)? Some of the 0.99 ones are USA and Canada only, like @remshavin said.

    It didn't specify where I found the code, but the price dropped to $1.17 when I loaded it. Doesn't that mean that it works?

    I only have $1.37 on Paypal right now and about $2 on my debit card, which I believe won't be enough. :( Thanks, anyway.

    In this case, can anyone direct me some place where I can buy a domain with about $1? I'm really eager to start my first website, even though I'll probably be using free hosting in the first months.

    Either you have verified or unverified PayPal account, GoDaddy will ask you to add credit card. Simple as that.

    I've been a customer for years. They do accept your card. They just refused mine as well, and I have been doing a lot of shopping with them. Best chance is to phone them, that's what I'm planning to do.

    So, it dropped to $1.17 and after someone purchases it for you, you'll pay $1 via paypal. Why would someone make a lose of $0.17 and I guess you're greedy not disclosing the code.

    Personally, I would back off. It may seem rude, but I think so.

    Sharing is caring.

    Is this cent drama still unfolding? It is cents, man. Is the difference between 99 cents and a 1.99, or 2.95, which can be found everywhere for a.com, so great and problematic?

    This is because the coupon code you entered is only for US/CANADA.

    The coupon will work, but you will got error if your are paying using the coupon code for US/CANADA.
