Advice on HOW to purchase a Macbook?

Hey there everyone, I've got an odd situation that I'm hoping you all can help me with. I am a college student in the US and my parents live overseas in Turkey. My father wants to buy me a Retina Macbook Pro for school using his credit card and under his company business name (I do some work on the side to help him with business). I'm apparently unable to use his foreign credit card on the Apple Store and it is crucial that I am able to get him an invoice under his company name. Also, if this matters, I am trying to get the 15"rMBP with 2.6ghz/16gb Ram/256gb HD (not the standard model). How can I do this? Thanks so very much ahead of time for your help.

Is there any way he can write you a paycheck since you work for him?

Ok so I don't mean to suggest the obvious but I assume you have tried to purchase one and the apple store didn't like his credit card.....

Anyway you should go to a apple store and talk to someone there. They should be able to help you out because as far as I know the foreign credit card shouldn't be a problem as I know my parents have purchased apple products before in the US (I'm Australian). So try again with his credit card perhaps but I think the best bet is to order it directly from the apple store where ever you go to school, they should be able to make an invoice for him under his company name in terms of paying for it you could try giving the person the credit card number but that may not work for security reasons so you might have to go at a convenient time for both US and Turkey and call him so he can talk to someone if necessary.
