Do you except Visa-Debit for online purchases?

My teenage son has a Visa-Debit card. Just issued, so no credit history.

I'm planning to load up that card with $1,000 so that he can buy the Iphone7 and a pre-paid plan at the same time.

Is this going to work?

PS. He already has a pre-paid plan with you, in case that matters.

Hi,
Short answer is No,

For Prepaid customers, you don't have to go through the credit check requirement but they don't sell iPhone 7 for prepaid customers. You need to go in-store if you would want a prepaid phone https://www.koodomobile.com/prepaid-phones

If you want to order online you need a credit card (debit visa doesn't work) https://www.koodomobile.com/help/ordering-online

You could open a postpaid account instore for him as long as your son pass the credit check requirement https://www.koodomobile.com/help/credit-check-requirements

I'd go to a local apple store or online and get the phone there. You'll save $46 buying from Apple.

The question is on the debit card use on online purchase at the webstore (buying a phone online), it wasn't about monthly payments (paying your bill every month).

You can't use Visa debit to make a online purchase. You can use Visa debit to pay your bill every month.

It was already explained previously that it works for bill payments but not phones by Dinh. Don't start commenting on every thread related to this subject with copy pasta. This is two so far.
