  • Which Bank and what type of card ??

  • You need a chip card with International Usage enabled. Contact your bank for more details.

  • Very Few Cards actually work with PayPal..

    Major Private Banks do offer support out of the box, like ICICI / HDFC / Axis along with some state run banks like SBI / IBDI..

    But completely depends on bank in case of Debit Card..

    Its a major problem and headache unless you have a credit card..

  • I have credit card of HDFC but still i m not able to use it. is there any problem with my card or problem in DO policy ?

  • Brother you can use hdfc netsafe cards. They are not physical cards. They are virtual and are valid for 24 hours and can have max of 50,000 rs

I need to know which are the geographical area that accept for debit card payment in the digital ocean account. Please help me

OK, I found a way,
After many attempts, I figured out PayPal works with any international enabled Debit or Credit card in India just you have to change one setting in payment gateway of PayPal. I personally use Axis Credit Card. There is an Other Conversion Options text link highlighted in blue which opens an options window. Make sure you have to selected Bank Conversion instead of PayPal conversion.
