I went to buy some platinum the other day and I saw the American Express icon by the "pay by credit card" button. Thought, "Awesome, I can grab some plat with the AmEx gift card I have lying around." But Gameforge doesn't accept American Express--just Mastercard and Visa for North American players. So what's the AmEx icon there for?

Don't know if anyone here will be able to help you... payment questions should probably go direct to Support.

I don't think anyone can help me, even support. It's probably say above their heads as well.

Just pointing out that it's weird, is all. =P

If they have the Amex logo, its safe to assume there's some condition that they can take an Amex card... they might be able to charge it from a European locale in Euro, which might incur a foreign transaction fee.

Or they just stupidly tossed up the logo.

I was actually wondering about this too. I payed with my Amex card just fine...only thing is...it has not showed up in my credit card charges yet. (I'm assuming this might just take a few business days since it's over seas)

I used my Amex (from UK to pay in GBP) and had the same issue with it not on my statement but it did show up ~3 weeks later; probably a record delay for me.
