Google Pay thinks my debit card is a credit card (maybe)

Credit cards are not accepted at betting sites. I have always used Google pay with SkyBet for example to pay using my Monzo debit card. I just got a new debit card as my old one was about to expire. I’ve added it to Google pay without issue but if I try to use it on SkyBet via Google pay it says “card type not accepted here”, which suggests something is telling SkyBet that the card is a credit card.

Any ideas?

Which card do you have?

Could be Sky Bet needs to update their BIN database.

You’ll need to raise it with them if you haven’t already.

If I manually enter it into SkyBet no problem. If I select it via Google Pay there is a problem. Strange!

Ah. That is unusual. Google’s assigned “card number” seems to be triggering it.

Possibly need to explain this to Google :sweat_smile:
