Hi,

Not sure what you meant by SBI but when it comes to debit card, some card need manual activation or authorization when it comes to international/online payment. I think its better to talk with bank and see whether there are an issue from their end

Hi Srinath,

 

I think Nisal may be right here. I just tried to understand if a debit card is an acceptable form of payment in India for Adwords and yes, it is. See screen shot below:

So the only reason your card is not getting accepted could because, your card has not been authorized or opted in to the Online transaction programs or the online transactions for making payments in a different currency.

 

Like Nisal suggested, you should get in touch with the SBI branch you do your banking from and clarify your uses of the Debit Card and get the necessary authorization for making payments.

 

Hope this Helps!

 

Cheers!

Let me add one more point here. 

 

Make sure you are using a Visa or Mastercard, AdWords does not accept Maestro cards. 

 

Thanks
