    Visa Gift Card vs Visa Prepaid Credit/Debit Card vs Visa Vanilla Card for HCG online?

    This is my first purchase of HCG outside of my doctor practice so I am learning the ropes. I was just in the process of ordering Corion 2000IU vials from ReliableRx and at the time of payment realized that they don't accept MC. Can I just buy a Visa gift card to use for my purchase? Do they definitely work for international purchases? The prepaid credit cards require social security, drivers license, etc... I am very, very wary of identity theft so I don't want to buy one of those especially considering that it is for this one time use. In the old threads I searched, it seems like mixed results - I'm hoping that gift cards are more consistent now.

    No most of those don't allow international purchases.

    If you have a Bank of America Visa, you can go online and issue yourself a SafeShop virtual card and it works great. That's what I do. Probably other credit cards will do the same. Or they will let you send a check, I think. I've never bought from them so I'm not sure. I used All Day Chemist and they don't sell it anymore. Their sister company daynightchemist.com does but I think they just take Visa too.

    Most of them will take a check or you can mail in a money order. It will take longer but that's the only option unless you get it at a reseller who takes MC.

    Realiablepharmacy accepts e-Checks. Just give them your checking and routing numbers and it's the mail in 2 days. That's what I did.

    Listen, if you are worried about ID theft, this is what I tell everyone to do. Go to any bank and get a separate checking account that gives you a VISA debit card. If you sign up for online statements they only charge $3/month. Leave $10 in there all the time and when you need to buy something on the net, go and put the money in the account, go buy whatever off eBay, Amazon or Reliablepharmacy and the balance goes back down to $10. If your VISA #'s are ever compromised there is never anything to steal.
