Add and Use Entropay Virtual Visa Credit Card (VCC) to Google Checkout

Voila! I discovered one more new thing. I have found the way to add Entropay VCC to Google Checkout and use it without issues. I am quite experimenting nowadays. Frankly speaking it’s costing me money to experiment, but you know the necessity is something for which, sometimes we can go to any limits. This opens doors to possibilities and may help others.

In my last post, I detailed about how to get Entropay Virtual Credit Card (VCC) using SBI Maestro Debit Card. I got it and loaded it sometimes, so that experiment was totally successful.

Necessity is mother of Discovery or Inventions (whatever you like).

NEW NEED?

I needed to buy some Applications from Android Market, and I had only Entropay Virtual Visa (Credit) Card.

PROBLEMS?

* Android Market uses Google Checkout, which only takes Credit Cards with valid address and
information. Debit cards and especially cards, which are Maestro are not allowed.
* Entropay VCC is a VISA but still problem was there as it doesn’t have address and other information.
I contacted Entropay but they said you can use it with any address. This wasn’t case as Google verifies
the address and declines the card.

WORK AROUND?

There were some interesting things which I noticed. Hmmm…

1. It was giving me an error only with Postal Code and City/Region but not with Street Address line.
2. Google was still adding the card as there is no problem in Number or CVV. However, status remained as Declined. Reason: Postal Code wasn’t matching (may be).
3. It was very clear and a hunch that Google Checkout is checking the card’s origin not the address.

SOLUTION?

What I did? You want to know? Oh! Definitely you want to.

  1. I just went to Entropay website and copied their ‘Contact Us’ Address.
  2. Now, I added one more address to my PROFILE of Google Checkout as it was copied from Entropay.
    I didn’t make it default. It can be understood that you may be travelling. Logical and Legal!
  3. Add your card with Address copied from Entropay.
  4. Put your real Mobile Number and Name or it will be declined.
  5. Hit the ADD / SAVE. It will be accepted. Voila!

SNAPSHOTS (to prove and guide):

Copy Address From Here:
https://www.entropay.com/contact-us.php

Add Secondary Address To Google Checkout:

Add Card and Details:

I also did transactions on Android Market. Congratulations! You can now, purchase anything using Google Checkout.

BEWARE OF CHARGES:

Remember if you are purchasing anything in Dollars (USD), then there will be no charges (I am quite sure as they never charged me extra). This applies to all countries and places.

However, if you are purchasing in INR (rupees) or any other currency than USD, heavy charges will be taken by Google and Entropay. Single App/Product of Euro 1 (64 INR) may cost you something 2.50 USD, in real. So, it is like around 65% surcharge as there is thrice conversion between Dollar, Euro and Rupees.

So, only use it when the transaction is in dollars. You won’t be charged extra. In emergency or need, you can go ahead with any currency keeping charges in mind.

Finally, do remember that who found the way, say Thanks and share the blog with all in need.

    Well, just adding, Entropay VCC also worked with Amazon. I just singed up for AWS using E-VCC. As Amazon doesn't support CVV2 and Indian bank doesn't authorize a transaction without CVV2 , here Entropay is a huge solution for Indian users who wants to buy service/goods from Amazon.

    Hi, What is the name you enter while registering the Entropay card in Google checkout ? Is it the name on your debit card or the name which you use while regsitering for Entropay login.

      @ABC: You must enter your Real name that is the name with which you registered Google Account. If you put something else it may reject the card.

    I think you can use any name to register Google Account , so how will Google verify if my name is not the same which is there on the card. Please verify.

    Hi Mrinal, Thanks for the response. Yesterday my account got cancelled while trying to create a new Google account. I got following mail : We were unable to verify the account information for your recent purchase with Google Checkout. As a result, your account has been temporarily suspended and your recent order has been cancelled They now want me to send verification documents which includes ID card and Address proof like electricity bill. Now the electricity bill address would be different from what I entered in the Google checkout (since it is same as Entropay's address) . How do I proceed with this ? Thanks .

      First of all you did a big mistake. Never create many google checkout accounts as it is not allowed. Many Google accounts are allowed except Checkouts, Adwords and Adsense. It is directly mentioned in post that only use Genuine and matching Info for Name. Sorry to say, but no one can help you here. Wait for some days and then again use your very own account (not suspended one). Remember don't try to link one google checkout to other google account

    Hi, I am not trying to create multiple accounts. I want to create one account but have Maestro card so created a Entropay account first and then linked with Google checkout. But after entering the address of Entropay , the verification failed. Thanks.

    Just now mailed Entropay and this is the response : Our card does not support AVS (Address Verification Check) so no website can see your registered address. The problem you have encountered is from Google checkout side. You will need to contact Google checkout and ask them why they refused the purchase.

They are trustworthy and provides Reloadable and up to 3 year VCC. Go here YACG Plus. Don't worry about site. Guys are good and responds quick.

    Hi, I have been trying to use my card to make online purchases from websites (for example bestbuy, target) to send gifts to my friends in the US, since US billing addresses are required by almost all. I have tried entropay and for some reason the payment always returns an error msg, do you think the same method used by you above will work to bypass the US avs checks? or is that entropay does not support it at all and therefore the card gets an error code? In the meantime because a payment has been attempted my funds get held for the requisite 30 days and I am unable to try again without constantly reloading my account! 🙁

      @Juhi Dhar:US payments are bit problematic with Entropay as there payment system is not allowed in US. Even Entropay doesn't accept US payments and residents for accounts. Money you got deducted will be refunded as there are VISA norms for that. So no worry for that. However I will say not to try Entropay for US. US checks are not possible to bypass for now.

    I found a problem when i try to purchase Google Play Books. It says the payment are not supported during the transaction. Well, I can purchase Apps in Android Play Store and successfully.
    It helps us Chinese as well. Apparently, we suffer more. China Mainland is not even the area Google Play support.

      @librehat: Sorry to hear that. Google Play has different payment methods and system which are according to country. Not all countries are part of Google Play right now. Some are lagging behind. Support and other things needs more time to be introduced to system. Hold your patience. It’s Google. Everything will be all right.

      The address will not create much problem but the name, yes, it is required to be same. The card details are verified across world by banks and merchants. This is to avoid frauds. You may not face any issue at present but sometime in future they may block your account and card. Don’t take that risk.

    Hi Mrinal,

    I am a student from India. I am trying to purchase kindle books from Amazon Website. But unfortunately, as I don’t have a credit card, I am not able to pay them. Therefore I decided to go ahead with Entropay Virtual CC.

    Now could you please let me know, whether I could go ahead with this? Or else please suggest me some alternative.

      Hi Vignesh, You can definitely use Entropay. However, I don’t know that Amazon will accept Entropay VCC. It works most of the time. You can buy Amazon gift card from local store first then use it. If you are in India then you can use sites like Adorn-India but I can’t say that it is safe as I have never used it.

    Hey Mrinal, great workaround! I was just wondering if this still works and would work while paying to a G-Suite/Google Admin Account from my debit-card. Note that Google is always declining my debit-card because they only are accepting credit-cards but I don’t want to have a credit-card at the moment. I’m just 18 and I manage two companies so I really need this done fast; thank you 🙂
