The Gift Card Work Around
Is your credit card not being accepted when you try to sign up for Netflix? For whatever reason this happens some times. For some people it works fine, but for others it just won’t work. it’s weird, I don’t know why it happens, but I do know there is a work around that is pretty simple.
You can easily purchase a gift card through the site and then apply it to your account. These gift cards are often able to be purchased easier than signing up for the account. If you’re having issues with your Australian credit card signing up for Netflix here’s what I recommend:
1. Try to sign up a few times with the Aussie credit card. If it rejects you just try a few times. Sometimes it ends up going through after a few attempts.
2. If you live in Australia it is important that you have the right settings in your internet-ready devices so you can access Netflix (both in buying the gift card and in redeeming it). Netflix has geographical limitations which mean you cannot access Netflix from within Australia. However, if you follow our How to Get Netflix in Australia guide, you will be able to gain access to Netflix even if you reside within Australia. legal.
3. Once you have the necessary settings from UnblockUs and now have access to the Netflix website, do the following simple steps to purchase your Netflix Gift:
1. Go to http://netflix.com/Gift and click on Buy
2. Choose the number of months you would like to purchase (1, 2, 3, 6, or 12)
3. Choose the gift card design – this gift card can be printed or e-mailed to the recipient after your purchase.
4. After you have personalised and previewed the gift card, click on Purchase to finalise it.
