Hi!

Bad news I'm afraid. icon_smile_sad.gif

After talking to our account manager at streamline
(we're a mail order mobile phone co. btw) it turns
out that Solo does not support 'cardholder not present'
and is mainly pitched as a 'retail card'

What this basically means is that you have to be present
to sign for good purchased and you cannot use the card
for mail-order goods.

Apparently though some large retailers can use solo
for mail order, presumably due to the large volumes
of transactions they handle and the pressure they
can place on their card merchant.

Solo & Electron cards aren't a credit or debit card in the sense of the others.

A special machine is used which actually checks your account to ensure the funds are there before allowing the EFT (electronic funds transfer) to go ahead.

The whole idea of this is they can issue them to under 16's.

If i'm right (which ain't very often) WMAC accept solo over the phone/ net.

This i think is due to them being a large mail order company (like Trevski said)

All i can suggest is you give them a try anyway.

Spend some of your wages on a copy of Improve your coarse fishing and have a look at the adverts they all tell you what form of payment they take

And another!

USED TACKLE, Hucknall, Nottingham accept Solo and they've
got some bargains on offer.

They're advertised on page 9 of this weeks Angler's Mail.
