Can't send money using SBI Global Visa Debit card to freelancer.com

I have linked by SBI Global Visa debit card to PayPal, and I've already enabled international transactions, CNP and POS (E-Commerce) channels for that card. But whenever I try to make a payment to freelancer.com (for linking my PayPal to freelancer account), it says "To use this card, enable it for international transactions or choose another card."

I haven't made any other payments with my PayPal so far. I've tried making the payment many times over the past week, but it keeps on showing that error message. (Also, I've noticed that it never asks for and OTP - just the CVV number on the back of the card).

Am I missing something here?

Have the exact same problem recently with both the SBI Global VISA and SBI Global Mastercard cards. Their customer care is useless and keep suggesting that we enable the card for international usage, which we already have done. A visit to their local branch did not help either. So much for their "global" cards!

I had faced this problem back in June and I'm still facing it. I had visited the bank regarding the issue that I'm facing and they just answered saying it's PayPal's problem even without listening to me.

Hello @Vishal994, @ishant, and everyone! 

Thanks for posting in the PayPal Community! 

I'm sorry you're having difficulty sending a payment using a linked card. When adding a card to your PayPal account, we recommend only using a physical card. PayPal is not designed to be compatible with virtual cards, and support for them is not available. If a virtual card is added, which it sometimes cannot be, the card may not be able to be successfully used for sending money because of the incompatibility. 

Thank you for your understanding, and I hope you have a wonderful week. 

- Meghan

Sadly I have been facing the same issue. And no it is not a virtual card. It is a physical global VISA debit card with international transactions enabled which was working fine with Paypal payments before April 1st 2022. ( I was using it for various transactions, one of which was a Discord Nitro subscription which  was working fine for a year, but stopped working after March itself. )
After which, neither going to the bank nor talking to paypal customer support helps.

I don't know if shifting to using global debit cards from other banks will be helpful. My SBI global debit card works fine when doing direct transactions from my card, but it's always not safe doing so. The bank is also of no help in this situation.
