    Which method do you use to refill your eNom account ?

    I'm just too curious but... which method do you use to refill your account ?

    For a non US resident like me, it's not easy to refill my enom account, I have choice between CC and paypal and both have the 3% processing fee... If I use the other methods, I'll have to pay some fees to my bank instead...

    I'm trying to look for a solution to avoid that. If anyone has an idea to use wire transfer or check... Maybe using paypal to add fund and withdraw to the enom US account ? But I'm not sure it works

    Thanks,
    David.

    CC since i dont have paypal.

    and CC costs less than wire in refilling (if small refills) otherwise i'd use bank wire for big refillings.

    There is an option in paypal for some none-US member to withdraw money to a US bank , so what you need to know if you can withdraw money to eNom bank account , Almost the answer is no , but you may check with PAYPAL and let us know too

    eww! 3% is lame. Yet I pay it anyways. I will switch to check soon. I am paying 3% to enom, then another 2.15% +.30 in addition. Thats in the 2checkout.com ballpark for fees. I would like to avoid these. I do not have a Paypal account due to someone I know had their funds frozen for no legitimate reason.

    so 6.95 accounts isn't really 6.95 because after adding the %3 its almost 7.1585

    small calculation:
    if you refill your account with $695 for 100 domains , you really get 674.15 (695-20.85) 20.85 is the %3 for CC processing
    so 674.15 / 6.95 = 97 domains thats 3 domains lost
    3 domains cost is $20.85 / 97 domains = $0.215~
    0.215+6.95 = $7.165 per domain !!!
    thats even more expensive than ev1.net the $7.03 with tax

    Like you say Bashar, the real price of one domain name is 7.16 and not 6.95 if you refill with CC... And yet, I have to pay my bank a conversion rate from Euro to Dollar, my merchant account like adaptivehost said, etc. So my price is higher than 6.95 sure...

    I asked to PayPal if it's authorized to withdraw on another bank account if I'm not the owner, waiting the answer now.

    Thanks,
    David.
