There IS an alternative and it is explained in post number 3 on page 1 - follow it precisely and it does work PROVIDED YOU ARE LIVING IN THE UK AND NOT FRANCE.
It appears that PayPal France does not allow the same sort of 3rd party payments that PayPal UK does - I do not know about other European countries as I'm not there and have not tried anywhere else....
If you do not have a PayPal account (as I don't), then follow the directions given and you will be offered the chance to pay by other methods, select one of those.
I genuinely hope others manage the system OK if they ARE outside the UK and that it is ONLY France that has these observed oddities.......
Like others have said, I feel this thread has run it's course and would also like it closed/locked/deleted or whatever - it may well be serving as a negative influence now. I believe that VS have tried to do what they originally said they would do (months ago) when the renewal system was first questioned. Yes, a mistake was made about my status, but it was a mistake and we all make them so I have no intention of laying the blame on any member of the VS Admin team.........
Please let this thread wither and die from public view........
