Is debit card payment available in India?
My business debit card doesn't seem to be working in India (INR currency). I checked with the bank and they said it was working fine. I even made a transaction online to verify the card was working on payment gateways. However, Google keeps rejecting the transaction with this message "Authorization failed: No reason provided by your financial institution". Can anyone help me out with this?
Re: Is debit card payment available in India?
AdWords accepts Master/Visa Credit & Debit cards for India. Are you using one of those..?
Google makes a test charge (usually for Rs 2 or Rs 50, returned later) to check if the card is valid. In some instances, this charge may not be successful, though your card is valid. There are a few possibilities like your card not allowing automatic charges (ones not initiated by you). I'd suggest checking with your bank, if there was a unsuccessful charge from Google, ask them for a reason and try getting it rectified.
Automatic payments is slightly different from other online payment transactions you do, as the charge is initiated by the system, unlike the online transaction you've made.
Hope that helps!
