It was always a major hassle for me, in the US, trying to order from the Steinberg site through Asknet with a card. I ended up using the Sweetwater store a couple times to avoid the hassle.
This time the order went through very quickly with no hiccups.
Haven’t had much chance to try out Cubase 13 yet, but I just got it to crash pretty easily.
It took forever for it to scan the vst3’s too on one of my computers.
But this post was mainly for FastSpring. I’m glad it will be easy to order Steinberg stuff through them now.
