How to pay as a foreigner

i am a recent immigrant to canada and do not yet have my credit card. I have tried my international credit card, I have tried my friend's canadian Mastercard and another friend's canadian visa card. Nothing is working and my payment is due today as my plan subscription is due. Can anyone help? I have also tried the website recharge.com but it took the payment and then refunded it claiming there was a problem with the card issuer.

 

Please help! I am desperate and live up a mountain so cannot go to any shop to buy a voucher.

Go to recharge.com you can buy vouchers there to use as a payment method.

 

Edit:, sorry missed the part that you tried recharge. I would try again with PayPal or your friends PayPal  or cc.

It is really the only option. 

 

You could try changing your Self-serve info to your friends Canadian cc and make sure you enter all info as it is in their cc statement

As @mimmo said you can go to www.recharge.com to buy vouchers, make sure you enter the codes in exactly (capitals/lowercase/spaces, ect.). Your friends credit cards probably didn't work because the address you gave for your account do not match the credit card address.

The only way to pay your fee is to find a friend with a credit card and to pay for your plan...but you tried and it didn’t work...try again in a different browser or in cache... did you try with your phone  611....@J3ssicaorr

Update and solution: still couldn't get recharge.com to work and the public mobile website was down for maintenence. However I found another website - ding.com - which let me use my international card to buy a voucher number. Sold either $10, $20 or $40 which was fine for me (though I only actually needed $2!) Then phoned *611 to apply the credit to my account. All completed!
