buy sim card with a visa card from another country

I am trying to buy a sim card online using a visa card from another country. Actually I tried two different onces, one from NZ and one from France. Each time, I am being told that there is a problem with the billing address. Is this just because I have to have a canadian visa card to buy a Fizz sim card?
Thank you for your answers

    It is time for a change and get a canadian credit card. Some bank are almost everywhere in the world.

    As others said, you need a Canadian credit card.

    Foreign cards don't work, sadly.

    @GOAT: Why sadly. I believe that a phone providers should be able to know whom is using the service if something happen with the utilisation of it.

    beside verifying your credit, they also verify your location (billing address). Foreign credit card will not be possible.
