Hello, could someone explain why DigitalOcean is not accepting Payoneer cards for payments?

Check out our pricing & billing FAQ:

Do you accept virtual, electron, debit or prepaid credit cards?

We apologize for the inconvenience, but because we receive a large amount of fraudulent sign-ups we’ve had to restrict the use of virtual/electron and debit cards in some geographies. We made this decision after finding that up to 80% of abusive sign-ups used these types of cards. If you would like to pay with one of these cards, we recommend using the card to send a payment via PayPal.

This is ridiculous. You really should improve your fraud analytics instead of banning a widely accepted card like Payoneer. It is really an inconvenience for me, because in my country (Argentina) we suffer a 35% tax for buying services in Internet when using credit cards. Same thing with Paypal. I am sorry guys, because I love your service and I have recommended it to my colleagues, but the consequence is that I will not use your service anymore until you provide more payment options.

Same thing happen to me. Payoneer card is not a virtual card. Its physical plastic made nicely designed card. Then why you not accept this physical card? You can ask for card scan picture for verification
