Revolut is one of the most popular banking services in the world.
Many people use it for currency exchange and online payments because it has small or no fees for the majority of its services.
But sometimes, certain websites won’t accept Revolut. Despite the fact that the banking service isn’t yet accepted by all merchants, the problem is with those that accept it.
Many Revolut users are gettings Declined payments or return of their funds, even though the app works just fine.
Let’s see how you can solve this annoying problem.
What can I do if my Revolut card is declined on certain websites?
1. Check your credentials
Check your account in the Revolut app and see if the phone number, address, and personal data are correct.
If you changed any of the info recently, verify that the changes were submitted to the Revolut server and you got a confirmation of the modifications.
Also, make sure that you have sufficient funds, you entered the right card details, you didn’t exceeded your monthly spending limit for the card, and didn’t disabled certain types of transactions in your card security settings.
2. Link your Revolut account with other payments services
Another reason for this problem is the fact that Revolut doesn’t support MasterCard 3D Secure code and Verified by VISA.
No matter the account you have, depending on the BIN database the merchant uses, some prepaid cards are seen as not being prepaid while others are not.
This leads to some websites not accepting you Revolut card.
To solve the problem you can link your Revolut account with TransferWise Borderless and use their debit card, use your Revolut card through Curve, or link your card with PayPal.
While most merchants accept prepaid cards, some of them only accept debit cards. Your best bet is to link your Revolut card to another payment service like PayPal or Curve.
