    Can I get a credit card in USA?

    Is there any way to get an internet credit card, either visa or master card, that is issued in USA. A virtual credit card that I can use it be deposing money in its account using my local credit card. The reason why I want this, is because so many sites do not accept any internationl credit card issued outside USA.

    Do you have a U.S. SSN# and a U.S. mailing address? If so, this can be done. If not, then it is very unlikely since credit card issuers do a credit check on all applicants and use their credit score and report as a basis for approval. - Trusted Merchant Account Solutions since 1998

    Dear cdgcommerce,

    I do have a U.S mailing address, but I don't have a social number since I'm not an american citizen

    Will the mailing address be enough? or is there a way to get a SN?

    Thank a lot

    What You can get is:
    1. TaxID - EIN for a company which You can have there. It's like SN but for a company.
    You can get it in 1 day if You enquire directly IRS.

    2. ITIN which is SSN for non American Citizens. I heard it takes 30 days. Same source to look in - IRS.

    Problem is that if they do credit checks I am not sure if it will actually help.

    CDG any ideas?
