Virtual Credit Card a new solution for Paypal India User

 

Rules of Reserve Bank of India almost kills the Indian bloggers and freelancers since 2011. Paypal is the most common and widely accepted payment all over the world.But yesterday when I bought web hosting in Lastchance Black Monday sell from Hostmetro, i faced the problem first time.

Getting paid and making payment from india has become difficult when Paypal shows error in adding a United Bank of India VISA in my paypal account

The bank that issued your card didn’t approve this transaction. Please contact the card issuer’s customer service department if you have any questions. Or you can add a different card now to continue.

I become helpless at that situation.I have two bank account on SBI and UBI. State Bank of India virtual credit card does not work for international payment.Though as per some internet user ICICI and Axis bank debit card can be added to paypal but i don’t have any of them to give it a try

Searched for United Bank of India visa limitation.But there is no such limitation found on their web documentation in international payment.Asked United Bank of India banking personnel but they can’t do anything.

I become upset for a while and after few seconds I google this problem and found many of paypal user faced the similar problem.But no such solution found from their forum comment.A question stuck on my mind, if paypal india does not support credit card from india then How other bloggers and freelancers from india make a payment during their transaction on dollar or other international  currencies?

I know there is alternative of Paypal but Hostmetro only support Payapl , VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER and American Express.I have also tried for VISA payment but the same problem as of paypal found.I can’t ignore the problem.

Indian Blogger Nimish Kumar in Shoutmeloud lightened in a solution but the trick does not work for me.So i tried searching again.

I was thinking is there any virtual method to do the same.Again searching in google works for me.In a discussion forum i found the word “Virtual Credit Card” and search for it.

There is too many virtual credit card provider all over the world.I was looking for which one work for indian user.And this trick worked for me.Found entropy works for indian user.

Finally i have found a new solution for Paypal India User , Virtual Credit Card.

As the sell in Hostmetro will close soon and i have to move immediately.I don’t wait for a single minute. Signed Up for Entropay.

    And i have a oriental commerse visa card !

    1. Few banks in india allow international transaction on their card.Though most of the private bank credi or debit card works fine.If you don’t have that you may try money transfer through online banking.I have tested united bank of india debit card & it’s working.You may try skrill if skrill is available as payment option.

  5. if we create an account on entropay and generate a virtual credit card ,,,can that card be added to payapl account?

    1. I had tried to verify my paypal with entropay but that didn’t work.Also i had tried to add entropay card with my paypal a/c.But no luck.I think paypal does not support entropay issued card.You may try adding your debit card or bank account to verify your paypal a/c.Now a days SBI also issuing international debit card.

      1. I have Platinum International Debit Card which is EMV Chip Based Card
        DOESN’T WORK

        I ended up getting a Credit Card from Axis Bank against Fixed Deposit of Rs. 25,000 Respectively

  6. Sir do the sbi international card allow transcation without 3d secure pin? I mean can i use the sbi card in ebay ,bonanza etc site?

    1. This is what sbi reply’s on my query about paypal payment “we would like to inform you that PayPal is not participating in 3D Secure which is mandatory for State Bank Group debit cards for doing e-commerce transactions. Therefore transactions done at PayPal are declined at our ATM Switch”.I think it will not allow you without 3d secure pin.

  7. I have SBI global international debit card (master card).but can not use it amazon.com or eBay.CPM.as you said they allow international transactions ,then how and yes there is emv chip on the card.

    1. I can’t say about master card but SBI global international debit card (visa) works for me.Though my card does not works with paypal.This is what sbi reply’s on my query about paypal payment “we would like to inform you that PayPal is not participating in 3D Secure which is mandatory for State Bank Group debit cards for doing e-commerce transactions. Therefore transactions done at PayPal are declined at our ATM Switch”

      1. I intend to use SBI global International debit card – visa along with entropay to pay application fee in ireland does this work?

  8. Hey, can I use sbi platinum international debit card master card in aliexpress or for online international online shopping?

    1. Most probably it will work.Though i haven’t tried.I have tried international visa card on stripe & it work’s.

  9. Sir, will entropay accept United Bank of India International Debit Card and will A lies press accept entropy. Please reply me soon with due all respect

    1. Yes entropy accept ubi visa debit card.Though i can’t say whether aliexpress will accept entropay or not.You may ask aliexpress help center.

  10. Sir, will entropay accept United Bank of India International Debit Card and will Aliexpress accept entropay. Please reply soon.

    1. Yes entropy accept ubi visa debit card.Though i can’t say whether aliexpress will accept entropay or not.You may ask aliexpress help center.

  11. entropay not working for my SBI dabit card.. strange thing is i am trying to add $5 in entropay but my SBI OTP sms says i am paying Rs.5 ..

    1. Though SBI is showing Rs 5, but they will deduct $5 usd equivalent amount & $5usd will be credited in your entropay account.Just try once & reply what’s happening to you.

  12. I am also facing same problem. I can’t buy WordPress plugins. So will entropay do the work. If i get the entropay visa card, will i be able to link it to my paypal account and use to to buy products from other countries.

    1. No, you can’t add entropay issued card with your paypal account.Paypal doesn’t support entropay.Skrill, webmoney etc supports entropay payment.So, my suggestion ask plugin author for alternative payment option or apply for icici,hdfc,kotak,axis bank credit or debit card.

  13. Is there anyway to accept payment from entropay to my bank account. If someone gives me entopay vcc to pay than how can i accept payment from entropay to my bank account.

    1. You may use your vcc at paytm & freecharge to add money & after that you may transfer it to your bank.Though i have not tried this method.
