A year ago, I received my Public Bank Visa Electron debit card. The debit card is useful. I have already done many online shopping using the card.
Beside Public Bank, other Malaysia local banks also offer Visa Electron debit card. However, for some reasons, not all debit cards are accepted by online merchants.
Bank Simpanan National’sis one of the example, according to Menj.
The reason I decided to apply for Public Bank’s debit card service was because my BSN Matrix card (although claimed to be a “debit card” complete with Visa Electron logo and the Visa hologram) is pretty much impotent and it is not accepted anywhere online.
My two cents
So far, Public Bank’s Visa Electron debit card is known to be the best debit card for online shopping. It seldom gets rejected, even the online merchant accepts Visa credit card only.
