Order being placed

I went through the procedure and when at checkout there was no option to pay paypal
Only US Canada and UK

Why?

How big was the order for? There is a total limit I believe from when I last tried to pay for something with PayPal through B&H. Credit card with photo ID authorisation may be the only way to go in that case.

As i have seen no current policy in regards to this I feel an explanation is warranted.
Whats good enough for UK and Canada its good enough for Aus

When we initially began accepting PayPal payments we limited the option to customers from the USA, Canada and the UK. Now, the program has been running for some time and seems to be reliable so the request we expand it is reasonable IMO. I will bring this to our web marketing department manager's attention this morning.

One idea would be to get a (free) paypal debit card - that will take funds directly out of your paypal account and even gives you cash back.

It's really easy to get- not sure about PP in Australia but you opt in to it on their website. There aren't any fees/minimums etc, I only use mine for the cash back basically.

Nikon USA has a rule (they have quite a few actually, but we're only interested in one here) that authorized US retailers may not, under dire penalty, ship any Nikon digital slr to any location outside the USA. This is their rule, not ours. We appreciate your feelings and regret we cannot sell the Nikon camera you wanted to you.
