I tried to add a Visa and a Mastercard (Issued in Egypt) cards to my account and they both got denied with a message that says "This Card is Not Accepted. Please use a different card"
The Visa card was issued by Credit Agricole (Egypt)
The MasterCard is Issued by CIB (Egypt)
Both Cards are Debit Cards.
However, I have a friend in Egypt who added a Visa card Issued by HSBC (Egypt) to their Egyptian PayPal account and it was accepted!
Could it be a problem with my banks? that if I had an HSBC issued card will work for me as well? or is it a problem with my PayPal account?
Any help (especially from Egyptians who tried it and worked) will be so much appreciated.
