Does anybody know how I can pay a Moscow business from a US credit card or bank acct? Wise says it is unable to pay in Rubles "temporarily".

Unfortunately the vendor (a flower shop) isn't accepting any electronic payments right now, so even if I could get him paid electronically, he's only accepting cash.

You might need to use one of your European accounts via Wise to pay but try >>here<< and let us know how it works.

If it's a smallish amount, I could facilitate it too. But it would be the old exchange rate that I went into the Roubles at. DM with the amount if Korona doesn't work.
