Why Digital Ocean not Accepting My Visa Debit Card for Payments?

I want to purchase digital ocean VPS hosting servers but at payment or billing section , digital ocean does not accepting my visa debit card. I’m using Standard Chartered visa debit, bank managements saying you can use your visa debit cards in online market for buy and selling. But digital ocean not accepting my card, I’m confuse and worried about that because I want to start my server as soon as possible. PayPal not supported in my country so we can not utilize this service. Please help me to resolve that issue and to go ahead.

Seriously guys, what gives? This is a huge red flag and I actually was ready to order some services from you and now I’m actively looking at other options. What is wrong with your company that you need to deny debit cards? Too cheap for proper insurance? Actually don’t answer - anything you say will not be acceptable - there’s legitimately NO good response here. I’m going elsewhere. Let me know when you mature as a company.

Hi All! Today is a March 23th 2020 and I’ve got a “Your card does not support this type of purchase” message too. Why support do nothing ? In 2020 this issue looks like a bullshit/ I will use AWS instead of this…

digitalocean is bad choice for students. even they asked for verification from student. i am really disappointed.
