Specs: Windows 7
I want to buy Microsoft office for my new laptop but when I get to the payment page it asks whether I want to pay by credit card, but I have a debit card, can I still buy it/ go through with the transaction by accepting or not

This is not really a Windows 7 question, but I'll try my best.

First you have to find out if the selling company is located in the same country as you are, or if it's an international purchase.

Second you have to find out if your card is valid for (international, see above) on-line purchase. This information should be printed in the agreement you signed (hopefully after reading it) when you got the card. If you don't have it, the card provider should have that information.

Third you have to find out if the selling company has some restrictions about the type of card that are valid. This information is usually found on the page where you enter your card details. If not, the selling company should have that information.

✔ Best Answer
Usually both are acceptable.

Personally I'd go with (use) a credit card option if possible; as that way you have some protection against fraud by the vendor of whatever you're buying that way. And similarly if the vendor goes bust before you receive the goods, you have a call against the credit card company too to recover your moey. There is a minimum limit too (£100 in the UK - may be lower?) before that protection kicks in, but I think I have the above info is correct, at least for the UK and the rest of the dreaded Eurozene countries...

Debit cards mean the cash has gone immediately, and almost impossible to recover in event of fraud, or other problems associated with a purchase on-line? Credit cards (even payal too?) are generally safer in this regard?

Yeah, I've never had a problem using my ATM card number when purchasing online. I prefer using paypal whenever possible as that gives an added layer of protection.

Don't forget to preorder your Hatch green chili for this fall. Many vendors ship world-wide. Better hurry. They're picking and shipping now.
