Gift Certificate

I have just used up my $50 voucher. As I live in the UK I can't add a credit card to my account so I'm wondering whether anyone is willing to purchase a gift certificate for me and I will pay you via paypal. I obtained my reader in this manner through a forum member (geekraver) so I'm hoping this will be possible

Will buy giftcards....

I've also used my $50 signup bonus. As this portal will not be released in Norway the next 10 years, i would like to buy giftcards and pay with paypal from any helpful sonyreader enthusiast..

Send me a private message og e-mail.

Thanks,

Hi sarah, I replied to your message in the Flea Market a couple of days ago. Here is a quote:

Quote:
Hey guys, I'd be willing to do this, I can take paypal no problem. I think the extra $5 should cover the fees. I'll give it a try with one person first and see what happens and if everything goes ok, I'll be a go between no big deal. Let me know who wants to be the guinea pig!

BTW, in case you're afraid of paypaling me money, I have trading feedback on other sites. You can check my profile on Heatware (older), Beerology and eBay (member glyph99 - 90 positives).
Since I haven't seen conclusive evidence that giftcards can be used by non-US people, I would suggest it'd be tried first for a small amount, like $5.

Just brought home my reader, and I was wondering how you got the $50 credit...I didn't have any kind of document or anything in my box, and when I signed up for connect, there was no indication that there was any kind of credit.

Thanks....

Hey tallguy. I had that problem myself. It's kind of confusing, even after you register the software on your computer, you still have to register the reader. Plug it in and authorize it and the $50 credit will show up in your account.

Thanks, the documentation was really confusing...I'm still waiting for the device to charge up, so I haven't registered it yet ;-)

Charge up? It should have been charged out of the box.

You have to register and authorize your reader. The credit should appear in your cart.

I think igorsk's post is a link to the Sony FAQ on the topic, Jane.

I also confirmed with a paypal exchange with Laurens that the giftcards work. If anyone else needs one, just pm me!

I thought it was necessary to sign up as a business owner in order to accept credit card payments through PayPal. If not, then I totally missed something.

Someone else can fund their own paypal account with their credit card Michele. You do have to sign up as a premier account to accept payments funded this way though, but I did that years ago.
