Purchasing Octopus card at airport - credit card?

We will be purchasing four 'loan' Octopus cards at HKIA - can we pay by credit card for these cards or does it have to be cash?

Buying Octopus Card is cash only. Taxi won't even take Octopus Card, takes only cash.

Though you can buy Airport Express train tickets and airport bus tickets with credit card.

Thanks for assistance... Just passing on that we found an ATM as you exit arrivals, so very easy to withdraw cash and go to MTR counter to purchase Octopus cards!
