Axis Bank VISA Debit Card Google Wallet

Update 3: Google Play now allow Indian user to pay via Netbanking. You can now pay for games, apps, books, movies, music from Netbanking. 

Update 2: According to RBI Guidelines, Merchant has to use the 2-way authentication to make payment from Debit Card. Both Google Play & Apple Store need to change their implement to meet the RBI Guidelines. Uber facing the same problem, they resolved it by partnering with PayTM Wallet.

Update: Looks like Debit Card users facing the problem with other International sites like Amazon, Paypal etc.

Since last month, I was facing an issue with my Axis Bank Debit Card (VISA) on Google Play store. Google Wallet rejected my VISA Debit card and after that, I’m not able to add any VISA debit card on Google Wallet. I contacted my bank and  Google Help support.  however, I did not  get a proper response. Yesterday when I tried once again and I got a proper reply from Both Axis Bank & Google Support. Both confirmed that this failure is  due to change in Google Wallet System, Axis bank Visa Debit  card will not work on Google Play store.

Axis Bank said:

We need to inform you that, due to the current change in the Apple store and Google wallets currencies being displayed in INR, we are facing an issue at our backend.

  7. First of all thanks to Mr. Gaurav Bhakuni for commenting about Digi Purse from Union Bank Of India. All the people out there who wants to buy apps/games from Google Play legitimately with your name and Indian phone/address. Then just go to google play and install Digi Purse from Union Bank Of India. (Don’t read the reviews it’s all bullshit) Go and sign up, but first you have to transfer 500/- INR through Internet banking/Debit Card/Credit from any Indian Banks to TopUp your Digi Wallet (Only for the first time). Then after this go straight away to and then go to billing and then add your Digipurse (VISA) card number CVV/Expiry, your own real address and phone number. It will accept the details Immediately as I did just now, you will be debited/deducted 1$ US Dollar = 50/- INR from you Digi Purse. And from then on just TopUp your wallet and buy apps/games in Indian Currency. HOOORAAAYY!!! I did it just now, and it worked flawlessly. CHEERS to all.! :-))))

    • Bhai, I did as exactly as you’ve said. But, while adding money to the google wallet it says card is invalid or incorrect which is provided by digi purse app. I am really frustrated with this, tried everything nothing has worked. Is there any solution to this??

        • Raza Rahil Hussain, Bro i am trying to add money to the google play store. I Couldn’t do it from my Canara Visa debit card. So i chose virtual credit card that is digi purse as Arjit Dasgupta said above, and I’ve added money something around 1000 already to digi wallet but i am not able to add that amount to the google wallet. Looks like that amount is wasted, so i don’t want to waste again my hard earned money lol.

    It carries a virtual credit card which can be used internationally.Using the app eversince it came out.but remember for activation of card initial amount should be 500.Handy app !!!!!

  9. For me, HDFC Platinum card is working (after enabling International usage). Union Bank of India EMV VISA debit card also works smoothly. PNB Platinum Card not working even after enabling international transaction. Same is the case with SBI. Despite having EMV Master Card, it doesnot work.
    My Axis bank EMV card is working flawlessly.

    • It will work…. did you activate card for international transaction???? if not, just open imobile app, go to card services and activate card for international usage… within 5 to 30 minutes it will get activated. I used silver, paywave and master cards on play store.
