In General

I always thought a Debit card is as good as a credit card… the only difference being that you spend your own money, vis a vis, the bank’s money. So I try using my HSBC international debit card to renew a domain name at Net4domains. To my surprise, the site turned down my card stating that the “Bank declined Transaction”. I then use a credit card and the payment is instantly accepted. Hmmm….what’s the idea of palming me a debit card with “Electron Visa” if I can’t use it on the Net ?!!
