    Why many bank online services offer a debit mastercard as your main card even if most of the companies/marketplace does not accept it as payment option?

    i don't reckon if i'd ever have any problem with my Payoneer card anywhere, can it be online or offline, i have one since 2008 and that's a prepaid debit MasterCard

    doesn't it help, if you link the debit MasterCard to your PayPal account and try to use the card via PayPal?

    plus i guess not every debit card is the same and it matters which bank issues it

    I often used Visa and Mastercard debit cards for car rentals, marketplaces etc. Never run in to a problem.

    You can use a debitcard through Paypal I can imagine, as Paypal are just a prossessing merchant.

    you can surely do that online, but you can't do that offline obviously :), not sure if OP was talking about online only or no
    also there are places that don't accept PayPal, but accept credit card payments

    I am using a payoneer debit mastercard, and i until now i didn't have any problems with online and offline payments. Also, you can link it with you paypal and all in all it is a great card to use. As i know a maestro debit can't be used for online payments and some other stuff are you sure that you have a mastercard? Also, if it is from another payment system or some unknown bank maybe you can have some problems, but as i know all mastercards can be used to shop online offline and withdraw money from any ATM in the world.
