    Hi

    Is it possible to buy rFactor 2 with a debit card? I do not have a credit card, so is there any way to do it without one? I would like to buy the game, but I haven't found a way yet.

    Thanks.

    If it's a Visa Electron or similar, you can pay online, or open a PayPal account with it.

    Thanks guys. However, it is not possible with my bank. Seems I will wait a while to see if options open. Cheers for help though.

    Just wish I could do an 'old-fashioned' eft, but clearly not.

    You should be able to transfer money to your PayPal account and then pay with the balance on your PayPal account, I believe.

    Thank you. How much does paypal cost for 1) Annual Subscription, and 2) Per payment?

    Can't find anything about its charges via Google?

    It is free of charge I believe. I can't remember ever paying for it, but will check to be sure ;)

    {edit}
    Just checked, and can't find anything about provisions, anual cost and more of that. Seems indeed free of charge, as I suspected. Can't remember ever paying anything for paypal, and am using it for many years now.

    It's not completely free of charge, otherwise it wouldn't exist :D

    I think you only pay for personal transactions, sending and receiving. Don't remember paying extra for purchasing stuff, and there are no running costs.

    I thought the provision was done via the receiving end, so if you sell something. Could be that personal transactions between persons also are charged.
    I always used it for buying stuff, and with that, I never have paid a provision I believe.

    Thanks for the clarrification Senad :)

    Good to know. However, when I try to sign up to PayPal, it still asks for credit card details. Am I missing something? My debit card does not have a CSC code, which is required.

    Thanks for the great help BTW :D

    EDIT: OK so I was being stupid earlier, I was not required to add CC details right away.

    So now I went to ADD FUNDS under the MY ACCOUNT tab, but the only option is TRANSFER FUNDS FROM A BANK ACCOUNT IN THE UNITED STATES.

    Really...? Is that my only option? lol

    So turns out our bank has just recently released MasterCard cards, so I got one and it worked first time. See you on the circuits soon :)
