I've ordered one myself in the past successfully, this would have been my second. I think the banking laws have changed in the UK recently. It's a Nationwide building society visa debit card. I only posted on here so Johannes could know about a potential problem. It's actually worked out great for me, I didn't know the AKSO had been released so I'll just order one of those.
I believe SSL certificates can be had for free from letsencrypt.
Edit...I paid with paypal
