Hey, sorry that happened to you. Just a thought, and this is how I handle all of my kratom except when I order straight from my friends in indo; get a prepaid card, one that you can setup a 'family account' with. I got one, setup the family portion, had a second card sent to me, and then from there, i can add a maximum amount to that card, and I can also setup limits as well. The only way money gets on it is if i go PUT money on it. When I find a vendor I want to buy from with a card, I get the total amount I need, I load it onto the card, then I set the spending limit to just over that, (rounding and all), this way, even if someone bogus tried to charge more, first, they would not be able to, because the only amount is what I loaded, and if I think the card was stolen or the number given out, I can simply cancel that Sub account and order a new card while not having to open a new primary account. It's easy to do things safe, I promise. Just has to be done RIGHT, then no worries ^_^

This works great, except a majority of Kratom vendors are not able to accept cc cards regularly. Sadly, the cc companies have believed misinformation about the leaf and there is no BRAIN in "charge" to explain what a relatively benign leaf purchase can do to help save someone's quality of life. Most are using E check quite successfully, thanks god<---that phrase is intentional in memory of a Brazilian friend I had.

Using e-check is safer than most people think. In order to cash a check they have to endorse the check and deposit it. It is easy to cancel a check if you get a bogus claim in your checking account. Check Fraud is a serious crime and easy to prove.

But, an added benefit to paying with e-check is all legitimate vendors accept payment with a check. Yes, you need to have the money up front but, this is a great way to stay with in your budget. I was nervous to use my checking account but, after doing research and all my e-check experiences with Kratom vendors.

I say use E-check. The vendors like it. They don't have to pay extra fees and they get thier money without having to deal with the credit card companies that sometimes with hold payment.

Good Luck...

Dang lol. Most of the vendors I order from, minus my indo friends, are able to take CC, and I've never had an issue. I had been, at one time, considering ordering from a place that didn't accept CC and Echeck was the preferred method. I'm pretty sure it was one of the 'approved vendors', though I didn't know that at the time. I never actually did it (way more expensive than my usual avenues ^_^. So, thus far, I've never had XP with Echeck just yet lol.

It’s fairly new. And cc acceptance is changing minute to minute, so more vendors are just now adding the echeck option. In some cases, the vendors need to hold off shipping until a check clears (big orders, new customers in particular), so there is a possible delay factor there. But some vendors have 7-10 business day waits on ALL ORDERS, so it’s wise to PLAN AHEAD accordingly.
