Try Sigo. They allow you to use other forms of verification such as ID in your home country.

Have you tried buying a U.S.-based prepaid debit card on eBay? There seems to be a lot of those available, especially around the holidays.

Even after getting the card, there may still be a problem if the vendor will not ship the goods outside of the country.

I used to have a prepaid debit card about 2 years ago. I was with a company called green dot? Not sure but anyways it wasn't worth it. Every month I would get a $5 maintenance fee which seems ridiculous as it's prepaid and doesn't require any maintenance whatsoever. Overall, if you ever get a prepaid debit card look into their terms of service to make sure they don't charge any fees. If they do then I wouldn't recommend getting one.

Have a look at www.epassporte.com

Anyone outside US can get an epassporte business account and charge it by sending wire transfers to them. Then use their virtual card to buy stuff online.

Almost all prepaid cards will have silly fees for pretty much everything you do or don't do.

I have an epassporte personal account that I have used since early 2005 on regular basis without any major issues. So they are reliable.

They don't require SSN but may ask you for an ID issued by the government of your country.
