The last few days I still get an IP-address sometimes with no location.
Perhaps something has changed concerning IP-addressess for VPN services?
Check your VPN connection with showip.net before buying books. I am curious to know if other people notice the same IP-address problem.


I believe I checked and gave a USA, California IP address or something like that...

Originally I've had a Mexican credit card filled in with a US address. It let me buy for almost 2 years with almost no problems.....
I think I had a couple of isolated problems when I tried buying late at night. I just retried the next day and had no problem. But maybe it was a coincidence...

I do have a US credit card that I could try... and see if it helps...

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance
