Questions about payment options are seen regularly, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I?.
How much does a domain cost?This used to have a simple answer.
$10 US, charged against a major bank issued credit card.
With the internationalisation of Blogger, the answer becomes significantly more complex.
Using Google Wallet, one may purchase a domain in over 230 countries.
The Google billing system accepts payments in over 230 countries with an international credit card.
We now see mention of specific payment methods which are not accepted - though they appear to be important enough to be documented by Google.
- Health Savings Account (HSA) cards.
- Transit cards.
- Western Union/Money Gram.
- Any escrow type of payment.
From what I have observed, using a bank issued credit card involves pretty complex "peer to peer" type transactions, between at least 3 parties.
- The bank providing the credit account for the blog owner.
- The bank providing the payment account for the registrar.
Item #2 provides intriguing options.
- American Express (USD Only).
- Discover (USD Only).
- Visa Electron (Outside of US Only).
If these options do not satisfy you, personally, you are entitled to purchase a domain from almost any registrar which provides an acceptable payment method. However, you will need to accept some responsibility for the technical details involved, in setting up the domain.
The complexities of International Banking will make "simple" purchases such as non BlogSpot URLs, for Blogger blogs, interesting to watch.
