    Good news for Indian freelancers, Internet marketers.

    I had a ICICI bank debit card, which never works on the international sites like Copyscape, 2checkout....

    I always used to pay with PayPal or entropy but the problem is that now we cannot send the money out with PayPal and entropay fee is ridiculous

    Few days back, I lost my old ICICI bank debit card ( it was sucked by AXIS bank ATM machine) and applied for a new card. Now, the new card which looks exactly the same as the previous card works on the international sites:

    I have tried:

    1. PayPro global
    2. 2checkout
    3. MoneyBookers
    4. Copyscape.com
    5. Freelancer.com
    6. Godaddy
    7. NetFirms
    8. Hostgator.com


    The card is working flawlessly, it is as good as having a credit card in your hand (except that the fact is not working with PayPal).

    PayPal: I tried to add my debit card with my PayPal account, but it is not working, however PayPal debited 1 rupee from my bank account.

    Though, I already have an instant credit card from ICICI bank against the fixed deposit but I prefer paying with my debit card.

    PS: I'm sorry, if you already know this..

    Well, I have been using my debit card for all online transactions except where it must be linked, or for recurring subscriptions.

    Works seamlessly. ICICI Debit card ofcourse :)

    Entropay,Justhost,Netfirms, everywhere :)

    I also ordered a free mug from Zoomin using the code ICICI Bank gave me.

    Yeah, personalised coffee mug with the Blackhatworld image shared by another user in the forum recently.

    I will be drinking blackhatcoffee soon ;)

    Check your netbanking mailbox :)
