    Sorry rahaman, no good news for you! The Debit card requires a separate manually entered three-digit code. It's an arrangement between the banks and the sellers terminal etc. So not possible to do online transactions with it.

    I am surprised that you can because I have also tried what rahaman did (with money in the bank account), and was not successful. Even Airtel people could not use it in place of Credit card because it would not allow for automatic deduction from my account without manually putting in that 3-digit code. In fact, that's when I found out about how it operates differently from a Credit Card. I'd like to know if and where you have tried it successfully. Thanks.

    Hi

    Credit card numbers are different and based onsome logic and for verification it uses cvv number with number verification and database verification.
    So a web site authenticating credit card numbers can not authenticate debitcard numbers which would not be in their data base. So for online transaction it can not be used.
    For use with shops they have special terminals provided by the issuing bank which connects to bank's records and verifies the transactions. Merchants would have their own code and may be you have to use your own code/pin as well.
    Credit card is better and cost effective if used wisely otherwise it would take no time to turn into a financial nightmare. Web payments , do only from few websites avoid as much as possible to escape online fraud. never give your numbers to unknown websites.There is a thread with detailed do's and don't on credit card in this forum.
