    I don't have a credit card so I requested for a sbi global MasterCard debit card from the bank and received it today. I activated international transaction on it. Then I linked it to my PayPal account but when I tried to confirm it PayPal gave an error that -"the card verification system used by PayPal is currently unavailable"
    Has anyone else got this error??? Please help... I need to buy my domain and hosting but now I'm stuck...

    Give paypal a call. They might be able to add it manually.

    Seems to suggest it might be their system playing up.
    Wait a few minutes then try again.

    If no joy, clear cache and cookies and try again.

    It is possible that system is unavailable for the moment (I've had same experience) but I got same message when I tried to use wrong card also.

    You CAN NOT use debit cards for payments through Paypal in INDIA You will need a credit card. If you don't have one, beg, borrow or steal. :)

    It should be a temporary problem then. Paypal does support indian debit cards so try it later. It might work.
