Thanks for your update. I thought it may have been a bank transfer issue.
Sending money to USA or Canada from outside these countries by bank transfer is problematic if the information is not formated in a certain way and requires lots of information ( must also provide USA Bank name & ( main office ) address along with bank #, branch #, account #, BIC & Routing Code plus the name listed on the account ). And if it is not formated properly then it'll bounce back. It is a real pain / hassle and why I like to avoid wire transfers from Europe.
The easier and better way is to use a credit card to make your purchase. Or safer yet would be a "virtual credit card" but you need to take care who you get it from. Paypal is supposed to offer a virtual credit card but I haven't looked into it.
