@ankurb Anyways, very long conversation this. We can make it the topic of our next meet. :)

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ankurb

@ankurb Back to same question. Unless banks officially make it available, merchants cannot confidently differentiate credit & debit cards.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ankurb

@ankurb Makes sense that they won’t mix it up. But why would they make the ranges public? Don’t see any compelling reason to do that.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ankurb

@ankurb Was aware of BIN (IIN), but thought that once it’s allotted to a bank, it’s up to them how they split the range b/w credit & debit.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ankurb

@ankurb Don’t see different ranges in the wikipedia document. Visa can be either credit or debit card.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ankurb

@ankurb Is it possible for a merchant to detect whether a card is a credit card or a debit card?

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ankurb

@ankurb For me, Visa debit cards have not worked for any int. trans. in past 6 months for a combination of these reasons. Incl Paypal.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ankurb

@ankurb Besides, in a recent RBI directive, it as made it compulsory for debit cards to be chip based for international transactions.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ankurb

@ankurb Not sure about UK, but in US 2FA is not required. So most vendors (incl. iTunes) don’t implement it.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ankurb

@ankurb I have come across plenty of times when the option of OTP has not been made available. But not sure why the OTP thing comes up.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ankurb

@ankurb Many banks rely on the 2-factor authentication for debit cards which are not implemented by international vendors. @GnrlMxms

via Twitter for Mac in reply to souvikdg

@ankurb In India, with respect to debit card international transactions, both RBI directives and bank implementations are screwed. @GnrlMxms

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ankurb

@GnrlMxms Indian debit cards have lots of implementation problems. Most of them will fail in international transactions.
