Having Trouble Paying For Netflix? Try This Solution
For most people signing up to Netflix in Australia is as easy as explained on this site. For whatever reason though for some there seems to be issues with payment and credit cards not being accepted.
I’ve explained a couple of work arounds on this site. Well it so happens that there is yet another way you can make sure your payment goes through. Read on!
When setting up your Netflix account, use your own street address that is associated with the billing address on the credit card you are using and convert the postal code into a valid zip code as per our instructions below. Be sure to take note of the city and state associated with the new zip code as you need this for your account set up.
Construct a VALID existing 5 digit ZIP code from your postal code as follows:
- Use digits of your postal code. Add zeros to the end if you have less than 5 digits in your postal code
- Use this tool https://tools.usps.com/go/ZipLookupAction!input.action?mode=2 to verify that it is a valid existing ZIP code.
- If it is not an existing code, then add 1 to the last digit and try to verify again.
Example postal code: M1R 2L1
M1R 2L1 = ZIP 12100
if 12100 is not a valid zip code, then
try 12101. Still not valid, then
Add one to the last digit until you get to 12107, which is a valid US ZIP Code.
