Lady Gaga's Born This Way Album - Amazon Does Not Allow me to Purchase

Lady Gaga's Born This Way Album - Amazon Does Not Allow me to Purchase
Having read from Mashable that Amazon will still be offering Lady Gaga's Born this Way album for only $0.99, I finally decided to purchase something from the internet for the first time.

But Amazon seemed to say it isn't the right time for me to do so.

Honestly, I am afraid to use my credit card to purchase something online. I am paranoid about credit card info theft.

Except today, I am intrigued by Lady Gaga and also the minimum price is very enticing.
According to Billboard magazine, Born This Way is expected to sell 800–850,000 copies in the US in its first week of release, thus giving Gaga her highest first week sales to date. Though high first-week sales are expected, Billboard noted its high digital sales to be largely in part to Amazon's 99 cent sale of the album throughout Monday, May 23rd. This would also cause the album to debut at number-one on the Billboard 200.[30] In it's first day of release, Born This Way sold 288 thousand copies, making it the fastest - selling album of the year. It has also nearly sold 1 million copies already in the United States.

It would be nice to be a one of the owners of a legal copy of one of the hottest albums to be released. However, Amazon has this to say why I can't.

And later on, I found out that even if I can use a US address or proxy server, I still can not purchase and download Lady Gaga's Born This Wayalbum because I intend to use my paypal account to do so.

According to this page, Amazon does not currently accept international wire transfers, PayPal, or Smart Cards.

Tsk. Tsk. My first online purchase would have to wait and torrent download is beckoning.
