    I have a problem using dropshipping suppliers.

    A lot of wholesalers only accept payments from US based credit/debit cards that have a US billing address. How can I get around this?

    I'm Norwegian and not a US citizen.

    You might need to get in touch with a VCC provider. Some in the BST section of the forum! HTH

    I have gotten a reloadable debit card, and it works perfectly. Now I'm wondering if it matters if the card doesn't support the Address Verification System (that compares the billing address to the card address). There isn't an address registered to the card I'm currently using.

    Do online shops/wholesalers usually accept non-AVS cards?

    And in case I would have to add a US address to the card, does it matter if the address isn't real, as long as the zip code exists?

    You raise a good point US based online retailers usually verify the cc with the billing address listed on the card. Supposedly these cards are supposed to be accepted anywhere normal cc are accepted. Even offline in the USA when I use my credit card outside of my zip code some retailers require that I provide my billing zip code.

    Now I have used a US address and since the card doesn't have an Address Verification (I guess) I had to call them and give my date of birth and the last four digits of my social security number. I don't have a US social security number, but i gave the last four digits of my Norwegian social security number. And my real date of birth.

    Do you think that the numbers are going to match when they compare them?

    And I use Entropay btw.

    It depends on the supplier \Merchant account/Payment processor. I'll be glad if you can send me some of your dropshipper list.
