Default buying shisha from online stores

I was wondering if there are any websites or stores online that will let you pay for shisha by sending in cash. I ask this because while I'm of age to buy tobacco, I am still rather young and do not have a credit card yet. Online stores also tend to offer a better selection of shisha than that of my local smoke shop.

Open an account with a bank that has debit/credit card, since that kind of debit card works both ways, or see if you can get a pre-paid Visa/MC through your bank. It will be much easier than trying to find a vendor who takes cash, and much safer for you. Do not use PayPal.

Usually a money order will work with a verification of age..

For sure go with the prepaid route. Sending cash in the mail is just plain dumb.

Yeah, you should never send cash in the mail. There is no way of tracking it. You are better off buying a prepaid card or just sending a money order which can also be bought almost anywhere.

Do yourself a favor. DO NOT send cash through the US mail. There is no way to recover it, or even prove if the recipient ever found it. Just go to a US Post office, or a drugstore, and ask for a money order. You pay about $1.50 over the amount of the money order, then just mail it in. You have a receipt.

they work just as a credit card. so if that store supports that type of credit card (id go with visa or mastercard) then yes they will accept it.

I do money orders all the time and never have had a problem with it, just make sure the money is well concealed.
