Have you considered signing up for paypal?  Paypal is a secure way to pay, and you can link it to a bank account.

Why dont you apply for a credit card and in the meantime explain your situation to the seller. Maybe she can hold it for you until you get one...which wouldnt take too long.

Wait, you’re saying that you can’t buy from Etsy because you don’t have a credit card? I’m pretty sure you can still purchase through PayPal. Is PayPal an option for this seller?

You have to use paypal on etsy – even if you have a credit card it goes through paypal! Just sign up for an account 🙂

I have never used anything but Paypal to purchase on Etsy, I think that is the only option, isn’t it?  You do not need a credit card to use Paypal, just a bank account.

I live in Chicago and if you are looking for the ring to be custom made, check out Windy City Diamonds. I had my e-ring custom made there and not only do they do amazing work, but they are very reasonably priced and have great customer service!

@Sullys_Girl_27:  I understand what you mean. But if he is going to go through all of the trouble of trying to ask his friends if he can use one of their credit cards, don’t you think it would be easier to just have him use his own account? He’d probably appreciate the convenience.

At Walmart they have a Visa Debit that costs $3 that you can put money on and use it to shop online like a regular credit card, except that it deducts the money from your account balance.  They give you a temporary card to activate the account online and about a week after that you receive your permanent card in the mail.  I use one to make purchases online without putting my regular charge card at risk.

I’m confused.  I really don’t understand not having a credit card, and no one else even sees this as an issue.  Don’t get me wrong, I have no credit card debt and never carry a balance… but it honestly seems irresponsible and incredibly inconvenient to not have a credit card between the two of you.  

Have neither of you ever bought anything online?  Have you never had your bank card expire (I assume you at least have a bank card that can be used as credit/debit??) or the bank lock the account for one reason or another?  My fiance was just alerted by his bank that there was suspicious activity so they canceled his card immediately and had to send him a new card.  He had no way to pay for anything for a week except for credit cards.  

My fiance and I travel a lot and although I mostly use Discover inside the US it is not accepted in most other countries.  Therefore, I have a Master Card that is mostly my travel card but is also occasionally used for purchases when stores don’t accept Discover inside the US.  I would not feel safe leaving the country without knowing that I had a credit card with a credit line large enough that no matter where I was I could suddenly pay for a plane flight home if needed.

You never know what may happen, and while I’m sure I’ll never want to leave my Hawaiian honeymoon… if there was some sort of natural disaster, or family emergency, or one of us got hurt while we were there, I couldn’t imagine not having plastic to cover sudden any urgent expenses and a flight back home.  

Think about people who were on vacation in Japan last year when the earth quake and tsunami created the fukushima nuclear meltdown and radiation scare.  I can honestly tell you that if I was there (I’ve had a layover in Japan but never actually visited the country) you couldn’t put a dollar price on a plane ticket home that I wouldn’t have paid.  Especially when there were still so many aftershocks and so much uncertainty with the nuclear reactors.  For some people, travel to Japan is too far and not something they will experience, but there is nothing to say these types of disasters can’t happen much closer to home!

Sorry for the rant, I just think its time to sign up for some plastic 🙂  Best of luck buying your perfect ring!!
