Club Penguin Membership Cards Are Great But ...

CP has been a huge success. But it's payment network could also use some work. It is conspicuously absent of proven offline payment methods e.g. prepaid cards like Wallie, UGC, etc.... Check the CP Payment Method Mix https://secure.clubpenguin.com/membership/faq.htm#method-accept With its owner's huge retail distribution network (for those of you ignoramouses out there CP is owned by Disney and is part of the very successful and pioneering Disney Interactive Group) they do cover the US nicely with its own branded prepaid cards or "Membership Cards" https://secure.clubpenguin.com/membership/membership_cards.htm And they do offer them in the UK at Sainsbury's. But why not extend their payment network reach by adding other prepaid methods? Bet they would sell a lot of memberships through Wallie Card in The Netherlands or Ukash in UK for example. And why are they not selling their gift certificates in Euros and other currencies and only making them available in USD? Strange ... So comment here if you want CP to add more prepaid cards http://support.clubpenguin.com/help/contact/billing.php
