[INDIAN]Why is paypal rejecting all my credit/debit cards?

Discussion in 'PayPal' started by nofullstop, Jun 11, 2008.

    Hi all

    I don't have a bank account but I have tried my dad's credit card (State Bank of India) and debit card (SBI) plus my mum's debit card (ICICI)


    ALL REJECTED

    this is what it says

    I contacted bank and they say the card is fine. The cards work fine when I use them locally in various shops.

    please help

    I need a paypal very urgent

    Don't know why your SBI credit card not works there :confused: Send paypal email (or contact them through phone) and let them know of this as they guide you further.

    Regarding Debit Cards none of Indian Debit Cards works for verification of paypal. Only through valid Credit Card you can verify your indian paypal account.

    does your card have visa or mastercard logo? Not visa electron, it should be visa only or mastercard logo. Only cards having visa and mastercard are accepted by paypal.
    Icici debit card usually have visa electron logo.
    And sbi have maestro logo. So look carefully in your card before using it.

    @ Zicofox: could u please give me the images of these logos?

    thnx

    @ DON: thnx for the answer. Paypal nowhere mentions that it won't take debit card. I talked to SBI people and they said the credit card is fine and working properly. I even used it in couple of shops and it worked fine. But whenever I use it over paypal and once over GODaddy it gets rejected. SBI people say the is international but it gets rejected in online things WHY???

    I am sure paypal won't help as it is getting rejected at go daddy too..meaning in online services it isn't working and no one knows why :(

    I lost $1500 deal in last 1 week just because I do not have a verified paypal.

    In which card? Icici or sbi?
    If you are talking about Icici debit card then look carefully in your card again what punching written on your card? Visa or visa electron?
    If you are talking about Sbi card then no problem. It should be a problem of credit limit or bad credit.

    I suggest you to go and get one Credit Card from HDFC bank or ICICI bank. I am using HDFC sliver credit card for myself. Go to nearest branch of any of the above banks and ask for further process. As they are giving lifetime free credit card.

    That's the reason buddy. Why should PayPal would accept a card bearing a different name than yours?

    Seriously speaking... debit cards from India are not accepted in paypal of any bank - so my suggestion is to have a credit card from ICICI or any other...

    also check from SBI that your credit card is approved for abroad transactions (USD) or not

    hope this helps...

    Is the credit card in your name? They will match first and lastname of the card holder to your name. if that matches they will authorize the card. if not they will reject it.

    Another reason could be, most indian banks dont allow online transactions to go through their system. You have to call them and ask them to allow online transactions of the cardholder.

    If you are above 18, ask your dad to get you an add-on card.

    Some people supply a lot of fake VCCs though :rolleyes:

    Paypal just needs to verify that the surname matches and then they accept the card.
