    This will be a detailed guide on getting a credit card in India. I saw a number of Indians posting their doubts related to debit cards not working for paypal verification. Also getting a credit card through bank involves a lengthy procedure here in India. So here is a simple solution to the problem.

    1) Go to entropay.com and make an account there. When I made the account there, it didn't asked for any address proof but it may ask for one so give correct details while joining.

    2)Once you have created the account, you can verify add funds there with a debit card (ATM). The minimum amount that you can add is $20.

    3) Whenever, you login in the entropay account, you can see the virtual card with the credit card number and *** code. You can also see the available balance by clicking the card. Adding the funds to the card is also easy through a debit card and hardly takes a few seconds. So this virtual credit card can be used for any online purchase. I have used it for buying the hostgator hosting, godaddy domains and verifying paypal.

    Verifying paypal with the entropay credit card

    1) Login to your paypal account. Go to the option add credit card and add all the details. Once you click on the option verify the card, paypal will withdraw some money from the credit card.

    2) Login to the entropay after few days and check the transactions. The transaction from paypal will be like this
    21.06.2012 PP*2481CODE USD1.95
    Enter the code(2481 in my case) in paypal and account will be verified.

    3) A verified paypal account allows you to send payments. I used it to become a Jr. VIP here.

    If you have any problems just post below and I will reply asap.

    Did you gave the correct pan number ? If yes, what was the reason they mentioned for rejection and what is the current status of your account ?

    You can send the documents bu using the contact us link in your paypal. Here is the link:
    https://www.paypal.com/in/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_contact-general

    Send them photocopy of pan card, bank account and voter card too and explain the situation. First send them an email with the contact us option. Someone from staff will reply and then you can reply him back with the attachments. There is no option to add attachments in contact us option.

    You can also contact them on twitter for faster response:
    https://twitter.com/#!/AskPayPal

    You will get it solved in 2-3 days. If the problem is still there, let us know.

    It happened with me as well. I called and asked them the reason, they told me that my bank accnt name and PAN don't match. That is why my accnt was also limited.
    So I added a bank accnt with the same name as my PAN and it did the work.

    Hope it helps. :)

    entropay doesnt work anymore in pp, its blocked.

    VCC have their own different series(google about it) so they are detectable as VCCs and also the location of the card will be diff as entropay cards are issued from a UK bank and you are in INDIA. So very soon you may get limited.

    Why not just get a real CC instead?

    What is the reason they mentioned for limiting the account ? If there are a lot of complaints against an account, it might not be restored.

    I heard that HDFC Bank provide VCC service know as Netsafe (1 time use, no reloading of funds), don't have an HDFC bacnk a/c so don't have much info.
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]For verification of my Paypal a/c I attached by my AXIS bank International GOLD card (Master card), believe me or not I got my Paypal account verified :D, but was not able to make any purchases through it ;) , So used entroypay VCC as the option for that, I am had no issues while attaching entropay VCC to paypal, still using it smoothly :)

    What's the point if they auto withdraw funds every 24 hours? Or doest verifying by CC allows us to store funds in Paypal without withdrawing them every day? Also, which type of PP account do you have? Personal or anything else. I've already verified my PP using HDFC bank and entered genuine PAN card details, but I'm still can't send money or receive direct payments from other users.

    I recommend 2 things:

    1. Using an elite proxy so pp doesn't get suspicious that your ip is suddenly different people

    2. Use a Liberty reserve bank account. Get a VCC from one of their trusted suppliers and use that, while using a proxy from the region your VCC is registered to.
