I've been blocked from making purchases from a certain company website and there is no alternative to purchase from. I assume my IP is blocked.  Can any one suggest a way around this? Please note, I'm not trying to do anything fraudulent or illegal.  I just want to make purchases from this site

have you considered a proxy/VPN service? if your IP really is blocked, i believe this would probably work.  either of those options will change your IP address online, and usually there are a variety of countries to choose from.  people use them for internet privacy (like me), or to bypass site blocking (like you).  i havent actually done this yet, but i plan on it in the future so ive done a little research already.. hide.me seems pretty well-reviewed, and their free plan would suit your needs.

this is from a blog article i found describing different types of proxy servers and stuff.. according to the post, "a good VPN provider keeps no logs". hide.me doesnt log any data (even for free users!) the only downside to VPN is typically price, but i think the free plan would be good for a one-time use. anyways, im not an expert, so make sure you find additional sources to confirm all this. just remember to research carefully before choosing a service, because a lot of the totally free ones can get pretty shady.

here are the reviews i looked at for hide.me: bestvpn.com (they also wrote that blog post), vpncomparison.org, and securitygladiators.com.

hidemyass.com has a huge list of proxies if you decide to go that route (you can search by security, protocol, country etc.)

good luck and lemme know how things turn out for you!

While I agree that hide.me is a good VPN provider, I strongly recommend using cheap VPN service instead of free ones. Free VPN may be selling your data or just be insecure. And even still, if you don't want to spend even few bucks on VPN, you can use services with free trials or those who offer money back guarantee. For example, ExpressVPN offers 30 days money back guarantee and I believe it's enough time to proceed  with the order you haven't been able to finish.
