    You need to have a Credit Card. If you don't, then tough luck for you.

    No "Indian" debit card will work. You need a Credit card.

    Indian debit cards use an additional protection mechanism - Verified by Visa/MasterCard SecureCode - with which no one outside India complies.

    I have tried MasterCard (Debit) by Punjab National Bank. It didn't work.

    All I know is payments on Android Market works through Google Checkout. And Google checkout accepts cards along with the cards which have Visa logo on it.
    My ICICI debit card, with VISA logo on it, Should work. Although I am skeptical to try.

    Edit: Nops. My hopes were too high from Google. "Indian" cards don't work. Even if their's a ****ing "Visa Logo" on it. Damn. :X

    Big deal is that majority don't have access to a credit card!

    Right. I don't have a credit card, but an ICICI debit card with a visa logo on it. Which supposedly should work. But it doesn't! :(

    It should _not_ work even supposedly. :| Indian debit cards don't work on international merchants. That's that. Reason I have already mentioned in this thread.

    Re: 10 apps for just 10 cents for 10 day on occasion of 10 Billion Android apps downl

    Hmm.. there maybe some exceptions. I just tried using my AXIS Bank Titanium Debit Card to purchase 'Beautiful Widgets' from Android market. And it worked flawlessly.:mrgreen:

    Didn't took more than 10 seconds for Google checkout process to finish and start the download.:wink:

    Amount debited was 52.77/- for Google.com :? (One time, I think)
    And 5.27/- for App purchase.

    It's a Mastercard and I have recently enabled Secure 3D login for it but it didn't ask for that.

    Here is a screenshot of my e-mail receipt. I know it doesn't indicate anywhere that I used a debit card, so you will have to take my words for it. :)
