I have just signed up for an account with dreamhost - and gave them my credit card number - but then recieved an email regarding a form that had to be faxed before they can charge my credit card.

I live in Australia, so can’t fax this form…but will they still charge my account? Can I just use paypal?

I live in Australia and have faxed the form to them.
It worked well.
Australia Post will allow you to send faxes, as will Kinkos etc
