I also bought from ModChipsDirect. I honestly went with this option because it was the first reseller I found which used https.

I'm honestly flabbergasted that there are businesses accepting CC's via http as this is a violation of PCI DSS.

But they only need to pass PCI compliance check maybe once every other year IF they have insurance....

Personally I would never give any website my card details . If they don't take PayPal I don't purchase .

In your case you cpuld proxy to paypal if blocked and use a disposable credit card to top up.

I don't normally post things like this, nor have I ever really been anal about protecting my card information, but: shortly after buying from modchipsdirect in Summer 2018, using my credit card, unauthorized charges for some MMORPG currency were made on my card for couple thousand USD. The charges were detected by my credit card's fraud alert system, and I had to get a new credit card number.

I would use PayPal, just a suggestion.

NEVER EVER GIVE YOUR card details to any site on the web, even the shitty padlock icon that tells you the session is secure , its is in fact not . Anyone can be attacked anywhere and the due diligence is not being exercised by those held accountable to hold our data . Once the server is attacked all your card details as well as other PII will be taken as per Zytos .

A little salt in the hash........

Stuck to this rule for ever and never had an issue .

Do you mean to tell us that you never use your CC online? Do you only use it for transactions in local bricks and mortar stores? That's a little extreme to me, as the main reason I got a CC in the first place was to use it online. Can't pay cash online. I got bitten once with fraud, multiple charges on World of Warcraft subscriptions, when I never even played the game. I called my CC bank issuer, they cancelled the card, gave me another one, and no problem ever since. Didn't even have to pay a dime for this incident. CC online is pretty safe, if you pay attention to what you're doing, and analyze your bills thoroughly.

It's a nice idea but it's not always avoidable. Not every site takes PayPal and even PayPal can get hacked. And then what do you do it you need a particular thing and you can't get it from a site that takes PayPal?

Ok then, ever try getting money back from fraud scenario on a bank account ?(IT takes for ever and a week) Then try pay pal i think then you will realise the difference.
If they do not take paypal then top up a disposable credit card online via paypal - most sites take paypal for disposable credit card payments , the idea here is that they are throw away numbers and no one cares if that gets culled on a DB somewhere.

I've never had to deal with fraud but I know what you mean. Easily avoidable by not ordering from sites you don't trust though. Fraud isn't that common, it mostly happens on auction/trading sites like eBay, where you have to use PayPal anyway.

In 2018 The recorded total value of fraudulent transactions conducted using cards issued within SEPA and acquired worldwide amounted to €1.8 billion in 2016 – a decrease of 0.4% compared with 2015. So not that much or common lols.

wake up.

Not sure what they consider fraudulent here. Do they include all the scams that happen "offline" (not through a purchase on a website but through phone "support" lines and similar?)
Those numbers say nothing about how many of those are online transactions. Online outright scams/fraud seem to be few and far between if you look at the internet as a whole. You can go on pretty much any random online store found through Google and they will most likely be legitimate if maybe somewhat sketchy and unreliable. If you look at just eBay though, scammers are rampant there, but eBay's just a small portion of the Internet. Another thing is websites and products that are obvious scams (to people like us anyway), like those rogue AV products that promise a lot but deliver nothing.
Bottom line is, it takes being pretty stupid or computer illiterate (or sometimes both) to get scammed on anything other than auction/trading sites like eBay and Craigslist because there you often can't really tell what you're getting until after you've paid. The chances of some random online store actually turning out to be a scam are much lower than those of getting scammed on an auction site, and if a store has zero feedback and looks like it just appeared out of nowhere it's obvious that it should be avoided.

I think you can check the similar thread https://gbatemp.net/threads/best-place-to-buy-sx-os-license.526087/, many sites supports credit card payment as well, but make sure it has the Https.

http://www.modchipsdirect.com/, https://www.mod3dscard.com/, maybe you mix them, the ModChipsDirect doesn't have "s".

Having https means jack shit if handing them card details . Shitty admins with shitty configurations on security and database has seen time and time again leaks that lead to massive hoards of card details being shared and cloned on darknet and the surface web . Use disposable cards if you have you use online . You can buy them in stores with cash .
