Saw the pre-order campaign for the Jolla tablet, and was interested in purchasing it. Unfortunately, indiegogo only accepts credit cards or paypal. Is there any other way to pay for it?

(A heads-up for next time - Indians prefer to use the online banking system or debit cards to pay for purchases. We are culturally debt averse and thus don't prefer credit cards at all. Paypal is very closely regulated by our federal bank and thus it has tie-ups with very few banks in India making it a useless payment processor in India.)

Credit card is a misnomer in this case. I ordered mine with a VISA debit, no problems what so ever.

Debit cards can be used?

Just used a debit visa card (in Russia).

@midnightoil & @attah: Cannot be used from India - I tried with a VISA debit and it was declined. This is because all credit / debit card transactions in India have to necessarily ask for additional verification - i.e., use verified by visa or mastercard secure code authentication too.

I have a visa debit (verified by visa) and have used it on Indiegogo ... don't see what the problem is.
