    Credit limit? Prepaid? High fraud rate? Are you trying to combine cards? Where are you trying to purchase from? What makes these Indian VISA cards unusual?

    I had tried a hell lot of times. Two months is a big time.
    They are saying that they do not accept cards outside US
    For a eligible order they want a genuine US card with billing address.
    So please suggest me what should I do to get a genuine US card or how to run these indioan cards

    Not sure I follow. How have you sold items on eBay you don't have possession of? Link to the eBay ad.

    As far as eBay is concerned that's fraud. You can only sell things you have possession of. Apple isn't going to let you use a foreign card to ship to a domestic address.

    Well your friend was wrong.
    This will tell you what Apple accepts.
    http://store.apple.com/us/help/payments

    Wire Apple a money order, when it clears they'll ship your order.

    Why on Earth would someone in the US pay you to sell them an iPhone that you have to pay full price for? Post your eBay link please.

    Sounds fishy.

    Judging by the fact that your feedback is -1 and what you've openely admitted to trying to do in this thread, makes me think you are nothing but a scammer, and not a very good one.

    Okay, a contract free iPhone 4S unlocked is $549 US, you sold yours for $529. How does your business if you can call it that make a profit?

    Your eBay feedback is awful, and the deal appears to have already fallen through. Your Indian VISA credit cards are useless in the US so what exactly was your business plan?

    I can't work out any honest way for you to make a profit from this venture, so please elaborate. How were you expecting to get a discount from Apple?

    Like I said, send Apple a US money order and they'll process your sale for you in about a day (after the money order clears the bank).

    Or was this all a scam?

    Statement in bold is contradictory.

    Fair enough, just tell us how your plan was supposed to work without someone or company being scammed or robbed? Your profit so far is -$20 US. Are you Santa?

    It took me all of 30 seconds to go to Apples site and find out what sort of payment methods are acceptable.

    Best bet now is close your eBay site, it's less than worthless with a -1 rating anyway.

    Almost forgot, Apple will charge you state tax too based on shipping address.

    When I buy anything on e-bay, I always select buyer in the US and always having a 99% rating and having made several thousand sales. But looking at this seller, who is based in India but showing sale in Florida, I am done with e-bay. I think I will stick with Amazon even though price is high there.

    In any case, Sky Kapoor aka ebay seller Ali, how in the world would your business work when your cost of product is higher than your sale price? I still do not understand how you were going to make a profit?

    This is appalling. And why does *every* single post of skykapoor have one up vote? Let me take a wild guess. He set up another account to "praise" himself.
