Credit Card Billing and User Profile Names Are Different?

Credit Card Billing and User Profile Names Are Different?
« on: September 19, 2013, 05:27:25 PM »
I want to buy a package from you (the $85 one) but I already sort of have a username and it wants me to create a new one.

Which isn't the actual problem. The problem is that my grandma told me she'd fund this business opportunity, and if I use her credit card...does that mean I have to use her name for my profile name? Or do you not even need the proper name for the credit card billing section to work?

I'm just curious before I proceed. Or is this the kind of thing that's like "try making a profile with your name and if the credit card goes through, you're good."

The profile name can be different from the credit card name.

If its your grandmothers card that you are using, please use her name and billing address under the credit card payment section.   You can use any profile name that you want. 

Thanks

Ya. It's just that under the billing section, there's nowhere that asks you for your name. It asks you for your address and credit card info, but no name.



I'm just gonna wing it and try to register using my real name, just now. I'll let you know how it goes.

I didn't need my grandma's name. Just pulling the correct credit card info (and I guess billing address) were enough, for future reference.
