    Why not get a credit card?  Or a debit credit card?  Banks most of the world throw them at you if you even accidentally make eye contact with them...

    What's the problem in getting a CC? 
    I'm from Germany, too. I know that credit cards aren't as popular in Germany as in many other western countries. That's because the debit card or direct debit systems offered by German banks are very popular, they charge far less from the accepting shops than credit card companies. That's why smaller shops often don't accept credit cards.
    But that doesn't mean credit cards are uncommon in Germany or harder to get than elsewhere.

    Of course the request for more payment options like PayPal or direct debit is perfectly reasonable. Based on the experience with Oculus so far I wouldn't hold my breath, though.

    CCs are uncommon in Germany. I have one and I use it very rarely. I mean VERY rarely. It costs money and brings mostly nothing, except you need a fast payment method for holiday bookings. PayPal is great and I would prefer that too.
    Excuse my bad english. I speak to you through the google translator. :P

    The problem is (apart for a real non-sense Paypal absence) that a lot of credit cards don't works with the shop!I've start a ticket weaks ago and after some ilarious replys from the support guys,they are disapeared!!
    You are doing well,Oculus!LOL.

    You should start an online petition to request other payment methods and put that in a new global thread.
    That way your request is more condensed and centralised.

    I know this is not the answer you want to hear but I am German as well and I have decided to wait until it is available for preorder at a German shop like alternate.de or mindfactory.de for a lot of reasons.
    It means no insane shipping fee, german return policies and the payment methods you expect. I think we are relatively close to that point and you may not get your rift much earlier if you order with oculus now, maybe 1-2 weeks...

    They already have the vive in stock, shortly after HTC finished delivering the direct preorders, which is supposed to be August for Oculus and Rift.
    So you can get it in August from Oculus or late August / early September from inside Germany. From what I read I don't think that's worth the trouble of having to deal with oculus directly in any matter, be it payment, support or anything else...

    Well,that's not the answer coz you miss the question!He is claim about the need of paypal in the Oculus store to buy apps,not for buy the CV1 itself (the absurd thing is that you can use paypal to buy the Oculus CV1 but you can't in the Oculus store to buy the apps...well,seems a bit psycho,but that's the way they are at Oculus!).

    PayPal offers a credit card that ties into your PayPal balance (at least they do for me - I'm in the US).

    Debit cards should also work if they are associated with a major credit card company (e.g. a Visa or Mastercard debit card will work the same as a Visa or Mastercard credit card).

    Don't have a credit card, don't want a credit card. So fuck you, Oculus Shop.
    Buy the same games on Steam for less.

    But the point is mood ... Why give money to a company that supports Donald Trump?

    Shop doesn't support shit. You haven an option to enter a credit card and that's it.

    It seems like the OP is ignoring the multiple hints, that there IS paypal support in the OH store. Dear @SanLunar please see the payment option screen in the Oh settings. There is a paypal option available. Use it. Be happy.

    I got my Rift yesterday, and I also got a Paypal option when I did my Oculus home setup.    I have to agree with the OP however, I live in the Netherlands, and the same as in Germany and most people dont have or use Creditcard. Its either cash, or pin with their bank card. (Maestro)   There is also no advantage here to use a creditcard. because you need to pay a small free over your transaction, and you have monthly costs.     

    I got a prepaid creditcard which I only use when I need to order something from websites which only support creditcards, but I noticed that recurring payment is not allowed with this creditcard either.
