It sounds like they block people from ordering using US addresses and US credit cards when the address on the computer shows that they're out of the country. This is not unusual, and it's often done as a fraud prevention measure. If you think about it, a scenario where someone who's located in another country, but using a US credit card to ship products to a US address, is rather unusual.All I am asking is for someone to offer an explanation - None has been forthcoming. Again, I am paying with their credit card and merchandise is being shipped to NY, not Israel.
The site obviously, and apparently relatively recently, has been locked down to traffic from certain IP ranges/geographic location/whatever. You can keep banging your head against a wall demanding ANSWERS, but they are not going to change that policy for you. And what if the "answer" you demand is "yeah we aren't allowing traffic from there anymore. Sorry." Will that change anything? If you really WANT to shop JCP from Israel, use a VPN, or if you're there for work, perhaps your corporate office already has one in place and place your order from there. Getting spun up for a circumstance that is not intended for you "personally" is only going to irritate you more.Guess what? I can't even unsubscribe from the daily emails!!! Access denied!
You have received the only possible explanations and willl not accept them. JC Penny is a company that's been on the brink of bankruptcy before and will sell anything to anyone, trust me.All I am asking is for someone to offer an explanation - None has been forthcoming. Again, I am paying with their credit card and merchandise is being shipped to NY, not Israel.

Thanks for posting this. My wife has been talking about doing this for a month after having someone get her online at a restaurant using his. We will look into this one.
A VPN is also a really good idea in the USA since Congress overturned the prohibitions on ISPs selling our browsing histories.Thanks for posting this. My wife has been talking about doing this for a month after having someone get her online at a restaurant using his. We will look into this one.
The article doesn't say how it works ... is it used on a phone or a laptop or either/both?
I sent this article to a friend of mine regarding what a VPN is and how it works as it's written for those that aren't into the technical part of the internet:The article doesn't say how it works ... is it used on a phone or a laptop or either/both?
Virtual Private Network. My son set up mine so I have no real knowledge of how to do it but the first thing I always do is 'ask The Google.'Uh, OK, I always wanted to create a "tunnel between my device and an exit point". And I would like my laptop to be more protected while travelling. The least someone could do is define V P N. That's not too technical, is it?
I'm a little confused - were you able to connect in Israel and S Korea with the VPN? It sounds like no. i thought using one you would be able to get online but guess not.To educate folks on what a VPN is:
You pay a nominal fee to have access to servers around the world. Your ISP, Internet Address Protocol, then reflects that servers location instead of yours. Additionally, since most if not all VPNs claim they don't keep a list of what websites you visit (unlike your ISP - this is how you get tailored ads), your browsing history is safe. It's also considered safer while traveling.
We don't know in the case if it's JCP doing the restricting, your ISP, or Israel, whatever way while it's frustrating the solution is a VPN, which isn't a bad idea anyway.
You can also use VPNs to view region restricted content, though the legality of this is debated.
I just used my vpn to connect through Israel and South Korea, denied both places. USA server - smooth as silk.
