How to verify Payza account with an icici bank debit card?
In this post I’ll tell you the procedure to verify your Payza account so that it can do heavier transactions, send and receive money from anywhere to anywhere. Payza needs you to have a credit card for verification purposes and the previous system of sending cheques doesn’t work. Here I am going to show how I verified my Payza account with an icici Debit card. The things you need
- ICICI bank debit card
- Internet connection(just kidding)
I ask you to go for ICICI debit card because these payment processors have an evil habit of not accepting any Indian debit card except that of icici’s and I don’t know the reasons and I am not aware if the situations have taken on a more promising hue.
Verifying your Payza account
In the option of verifying your account select by credit card and in the options enter your debit card number, date of expiration and your 3 digit cv code. They will then take you to a page asking your internet banking password and customer id. Key in all that information within the next 180 seconds an d Payza would have charged your card around $1.50. The charge is made in Indian rupees and they ask you to contact your bank on finding out the exact charge made in US dollars. In my case I did a quick calculation and arrived first at $1.49, keyed in that and got an error.
Fortunately they give you three lifelines and the second time I entered $1.50 and lo my account was verified. Ta da!! They said that they would reimburse my account for the amount charged but that never happened and maybe that’s because Payza can’t send money directly to my Indian bank account. However a small fee for greater good. After verifying my account I could do all transactions and send bigger amounts freely.
