Can't add Visa Debit to my account. I have been trying for two days and made COUNTLESS calls to customer service as well as searched online for hours!. Royal Bank says my card is fine. According to them, Koodo is not even showing as registered as a visa debit user and that Koodo needs to contact them to sign up! What is going on? I do not want to buy vouchers. I am missing out on the 5% discount for registering a card as well as the free 100 minute booster.

Hi there, Visa Debit from RBC should be accepted. The card should be starting by 451991 or 451992. Can you send us an email using this link so we can check what's happening Thank you!

If you see a good answer, give it a star.

Try adding a real credit card then removing it and adding your Visa Debit. I'm currently using Visa Debit as well.

I am unable to add my RBC Visa debit card either. It says that it's not authorized by my credit issuer, but I have spoken with RBC and they said my VISA debit card is fine. My card starts with 451993. I would rather use this than my actual Visa card that I currently have saved on my profile. Any idea when RBC Visa Debit will be accepted and/or be able to be used for pre-paid accounts?

Hey Bee! As mentioned above, Visa Debit cards are already accepted on Koodo Prepaid. How many times have you tried adding it? Can you double check to make sure you entered the right card number and expiry date? Have you ever been able to use it in the past with Koodo? Let us know!
