Payment by card (credit or debit, any bank, local or international)
1. Have you ever paid online using the card? If not, please call your bank first to check its status. Oftentimes local (Bangladeshi) banks block online payment, ask them to open it before you attempt to pay.
2. Are you set for receiving OTP (One Time Password) on your phone/email? Your bank will send an OTP for payment authentication via sms/email/code-generator. You must have to have a way to receive/generate the code to complete the payment. Generally it is your personal phone that is tied with your card for receiving the OTP codes via sms. If you are not sure about it, call your bank first to check if you are on for receiving the OTP.
3. For local dual currency cards, check if you have enough BDT fund. You can not pay in USD on local cards in our system, you may have to transfer it to BDT if you are on shortage.
4. International Cards (cards issued by banks outside of Bangladesh) will work on our system only if you have '3D Security' on. i.e: services like Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode or American Express Safekey must be turned on, and you have to have an option of receiving/generating OTP.
Payment by Mobile Banking
NEVER pay from a shop/agent (even if they can). Always pay from mobile wallets of your own, or of someone you know. Agent numbers can not make payments, even if they arrange it for you, you will be in trouble if you ever have to receive a refund from us. We only refund to the exact number the original payment was made from, if you pay from a random shop/agent possibilities are your refund will be lost. Remember that:
