I live in Korea but don't speak Korean. How to I purchase Live1Care? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I live in Korea. I do not speak much Korean. I set my region to US so I can read the English. My credit card is from Korea. How can I purchase? If I switch to Korean, I can't read what I need to do. If I try to order from the American site, my credit card can't change to Korean bank option.

    Where can I go to purchse the software?

    My address is hey.keith@gmail.com(dontspam).com

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

  • You can't. Not with a credit card, at least. You can purchase a retail copy from a retailer in the US who will ship it to you or have someone in the US purchase it and send you the key from inside the package. You can the activate a subscription with that key for a year.

    Be sure to read the announcement - Announcement 11/18/08 - you may want to forego purchasing a subscription.
