I'm from the US, gave an address in Washington state and was only prompted with Google check out or Check/money order. It would seem to me that this would hurt DH's image more than lowering the storage weekly gains them. I've always considered a company that can process their own credit cards more reliable than someone who only uses paypal or some such.

Interesting, then this would seem to be either a bug in the system or a conscious effort on the part of DreamHost to restrict the payment methods available to all potential customers.

I totally agree. If this is indeed a decision they have made, I think it's a bad one and one that will end up hurting them significantly.

Two other possibilities which haven't been mentioned but which could trigger a fraud warning:

Are you connecting through a proxy?
Or are you on a shared public computer?

Many fraud systems make an attempt to detect such configurations, and that can cause someone to be flagged. Some of my Chinese friends use proxy servers to bypass the Chinese government's internet filters, and they've had similar problems as you when trying to do transactions at secure sites. But it could happen to anyone in any country who's using a proxy or a public computer to sign up.

Neither of those apply to me, so I'm still not sure what's up.

I just did a test. After providing providing a fictitious name, address, and phone (U.S. based(, and using a 9999 promo code, to sign up for a level 1 plan (1 year pre-pay), I was presented with the following payment options:

1) Charge Card (four types)

2) Gift Certificates

3) Google Checkout

4) Check or Money Order

5) Pay Pal

I wonder if the system was just "borked" there for a while?
