Hi,

I got an invitation which allow me to purchase Raspberry Pi for $35 but I could not pay it using the provided payments methods, as I have money only on Solidtrustpay service which is another payment service, so I would someone who could purchase it for me and get it to their address then ship to me . I would pay it and any shipping charges to Morocco that incur, send me PM if interested .

Thanks .

You probably need to contact Solidtrustpay and ask them for help ;)

You never know they might have a creditcard :)

If you find a solution please post it in the wiki the forum dies too quick

Actually they do but it's hard to get one, at least for my case, so I hunt for a similar option please or someone who can purchase it for me and transfer it to my location .

If the Money is allready with SolidTrustPay service I would suspect thats your best hope.

The disposable credit card is an option Ido not know if its posible to set up a paypal account with SolidTrustPay aside from this I am at a loss for further suggestions. :(

Your profile doesn't say where in the world you live, so we can't easily help, but if you live anywhere near civilization (i.e. somewhere near a Maplins store) you should soon be able to walk in and buy one off the shelf. In the near future, other stores will have the same, so with patience your problem should go away

Only if a very narrow definition of civilization is applied...

It does kinda sound like Spanish Prisoner, doesn't it?

Or a 419...

I called them at http://www.farnell.com/distributors/morocco_mes.htm asking for a Raspberry Pi and they were like: 'What's that thing?'.

I'd suggest using farnell part numbers rather than discriptions when you call.

I have just called them and they really never imported one.

I have now given them the product references as they asked me through the telephone to do in an email and they said they'll reply me as soon as possible. I hope this will work.

They said they'll reply my email with a quote "yesterday" but let's give them some extra business days.
