Reason behind not accepting international credit cards?

[ Edited ]
may i know what is reason behind not accepting international credit cards?
We have to cancel a group order of lenovo thinkpads for my sister and her group of students as your company is not accepting credit cards which are issued by reputed banks and visa cards.
When other stores like amazon,paypal does not have any issues,why lenovo?

Re: Reason behind not accepting international credit cards?

hey drpratikb,

as there are many banks issuing credit cards, it is hard to verify all of it and also due to many credit card frauds that has occured; only US based credit cards will be accepted

But Paypal has lower risk of fraud then the international credit card.
