    Hi, I have a Nokia Lumia 800 and I wanted to purchase apps off the Marketplace or Zune but it asks me for credit card details. Is it possible that we can use debit card details to purchase apps and if we can't then that's not good enough because not everyone is fond of using credit cards and landing up in debt, even though the apps are cheap, but still I personally would rather use my debit card details because I don't have a credit card. If this matter could be attended to, it would mean a lot to me.:wink:

    Flip the card to the back, you will see a set of numbers, possibly two sets of 3 digits, depending on the card. It is the set of 3 digits farthest to the right.

    maestro debit cards have 19 digits number and no cvv code on the back of the card. they also dont have an expiry date and they dont work with wp store. mastercard debit cards have 16 digit number, cvv code on back side and an expiry date, they works with wp store - thats the situation as i see in India. my suggestion is: talk to your bank and upgrade your debit card to an international debit card (mastercard/ visa NOT maestro/ visa-electron), then it will have features like credit card and will work with wp store.

    I'm also South African and I'm with Nedbank. When I wanted to start purchasing things online and apps for my Android (sacrilege, I know!), I simply went to my nearest Nedbank branch and told them I wanted this functionality, but still on my debit account. Back then, I only had a savings account and they told me it would be impossible without a cheque account. At first, I was concerned about this, but after they explained to me that it would function like a normal debit account, I went with it. I opened the new cheque account and received my cheque card linked to the account, and since then haven't had any issues using it on the Windows Phone store to purchase apps (oh so many apps... It's scary how much I've spent on them!)

    TL:DR

    You need a cheque card. Just go ask your bank about acquiring such a card and how it would influence your accounts (hopefully, you don't need a new account. But like I said, setting up the new account and getting the card was super quick and easy at Nedbank.) Don't know how the Maestro, Mastercard or Visa-electron stuff works, but mine is a straight-up Visa card.

    Hope this helps!
