Here are some e-mails from and to Digitaltechmart that illustrate how they justify asking for direct bank transfer and a rebuttal proposal which - as yet - they have not answered:
We accept PayPal, Credit Cards from returning customers only.
We apologize for inconvenience, but no exceptions.
Credit card transactions aren't protected, since we can't do billing address check on foreign customers. Advanced card verification system
will be available in 1-3 months and we will be able to accept credit cards from all customers.
Your first order can be paid by bank transfer. To make payment please visit your local bank branch or use your online banking. Wire transfer,
done bank-to-bank, is considered the safest international payment method. Both account holders must have a proven identity, and there is
possibility of a chargeback. We provide 14 day refund - no questions asked. In the unlikely event that you are not 100% satisfied with your
purchase you can return it to us via the post in its original condition and we will give you a full refund. This applies only to online purchases.
You will be able to pay by PayPal and Credit Cards after your first order is successfully processed.
For full details check out our returns and refunds area of the Shipping & Returns information section.

So I put the following to their logic:
OK so if you are legitimate and the reason you give is honest - do you have a small sales item for say €2 that a 1st time purchaser can buy and thereby you can verify without much risk to the customer???
