So Netflix no longer excepts prepaid credit cards... Why can't they charge the account an initial setup fee like a deposit or make sure the account has a positive balance? This is a easy problem with an easy fix... Don't make me beg Netflix...
No recourse. Because they can't go after you. It is not a credit card but a gift card with a certain balance. A prepaid card has no protection for Netflix. I am sure their actions show that they have not had a good experience or track record with this group of accounts. Spend your gift card at the mall or other stores and use you regular credit card for Netflix.
You didn't listen to me did you? I said they could get a deposit from me like $100 to show good faith or expect that I have a positive balance... also my prepaid says debit right on the card and is an account that is linked to my address and I have my paychecks direct deposited onto that card so I don't know if your talking about prepaids from walmart or what but my card is different explain that one smart pants...
Exactly tell Netflix that... I was trying to explain that to them and they don't understand? Can someone explain this to them and these people that think all prepaid cards are from walmart and apparently suck... This is getting on my nerves...
I tried to set up an account using my card and they won't let me so you tell me who doesn't understand? This is the problem with our country run by stupid people... Is there anyone out there not taking crazy pills?
I dunno... Did you call Netflix Customer Service and speak to a live person? Or did you just try to use the automated system? If you called what did the person say "Why" was you card considered a prepaid?
Also if you are talking about the same type of payroll debit cards I think you are.. That problem lies with your employer and their choice of how to do business. I am very familiar with those types of cards.
The banks that handle them have very strict guidelines, and absolutely will not pay anyone if the balance falls below zero, or if there is not enough. The paper version of these are call "ComChecks"... They are so bad that a whole box of their checks got stolen and were being cashed at gas stations/stores etc all across the country.
So its entirely possible that Netflix may consider these prepaid as well (they are after all in a sense prepaid, in that when your payroll processes, the balance increases by the amount of your check... And with that the same rules apply as they would with prepaid cards..) Again, that's a problem with the bank that is processing your employers payroll (and your employers choice).
A point to note... If you confused your own card for a prepaid (your own choice of words to describe it)... then I would not call the kettle black till you are fully aware of your own reflection...
"in that when your payroll processes, the balance increases by the amount of your check"
You sir, Just described a debit card.
You deposit money, And your balance increases with the bank, allowing you to use the card to spend this money.
I too, am upset that netflix no longer accepts my HR Block Emerald Debit card, due to the fact that it's a "prepaid" card. And IMO, it's for the sole purpose to allow them to charge you regardless of the balance on the card. I fail to see how this is an issue, I don't see Xbox live rejecting these types of cards, or even Blockbuster online.
This is a fail on netflix's part, And I honestly hope that they go out of business for this crap.
"Those stream settings are for viewing movies on my computer, aren't they? I wish to watch streaming movies mostly on my television.
In any case, I set the quality to Good, and the movie does seem to play better on the TV.
"Go to this page and see if lowering the stream settings helps.
(I have it on "Good quality" and otherwise it would not work very well for me.)
Let us know if this solution helps you."
