My Question or Issue

Dear All!


I have a quick question? My daughter is just staying for a year in the US. As we have a family plan registered in Hungary, her account was cancelled, I have read this is normal, as we have to stay at the same place. However I currently have no chance to create her a new subscription, as the system does not accept the MasterCard issued in Hungary, saying she needs to use a US issued card - which she does not have. How can I or how can she pay for a subscription?


Thanks in advance

Hey @ddaniel,


Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Community.


You're correct that a recurring subscription requires a payment method, issued in the country to which an account is set to. If your daughter doesn't have an US credit card, perhaps using a gift card or other pay as you go methods could be a convenient solution? She can have a look at all the different payment methods available to her here


Hope this helps. The Community is here for you, should you have any questions.
