Do you think so?
But imagine that, on the other hand, Dreamhost probably has now around 200’000 customers, and new customers arriving everyday! Now, imagine that from all the new sign-ups only 5 percent will be facing the Google-Paypal/Country-not-in-listed problem. Still, this is a very large number! And DH should think about them, too…
I mean, once you contact support, register an account without adding a plan, and send a fax, you are able to pay, EVEN if your country is NOT listed! But, lots of people can be driven off away from DreamHost, because they do not KNOW how the problem with “country not listed, you cannot pay using your credit card” can be overcome! This is my point!
So, a small link “You country is not listed in Google Checkout? Click here for a possible solution” when on the page with pay options will be something great!
I really really hope some DH staff will read this and take a small notice!
We are all equal, and the DH anti-fraud system can be triggered by lots of ways - country, proxy, behind-a-firewall, etc. So in case you do not see anything else EXCEPT “pay using Google Checkout”, and you discover that Google doesn’t list your country, there are chances you’ll go away from DreamHost before sign up completed! And this should be avoided!
I like DH, their support, so just want to suggest something useful, for everyone :)))
