Obviously I seem to be pushing this think a little bit far, but since I am non-US resident, I want to measure the pros and cons of buying the Kindle. This whole issue of the US bank issued credit card and the 1click falls in the cons categorie and I need to be sure that I will be able to buy ebooks and magazines without having too much trouble.
Yes -- my 1-Click settings contain a credit card. However, even though I have purchased over 40 ebooks, 2 pounds of licorice, and 5 paper books since 1 January, there have been no charges made to my card. I received a gift card in December and applied it to my account. All my 1-Click purchases come from the positive balance on my account (funded by the gift card) and for regular purchases, I can choose to have the funds deducted from the gift card balance or charged to a credit card.
I have read differing accounts on whether or not you must have a credit card on a US Bank. I do know that your shipping address in your 1-Click settings must be a US address. You might look in the other threads where people from outside the US talk about their own experiences -- you can ask them directly how they set up their account.
