Audi Embark card price has been increased from 20$/year to a whopping 50$/year.

I'm paying 50$/year in order to be able to buy 25$/month...

Are you sure? 1 week ago I asked and they said 25$ per month.

Most banks banned transferwise and Binance, even for fresh accounts.

Are your Embark funds fresh USD?

Though, yes, i did hear of all banks basically banning usage of the cards on such sites.

Re: Paying with Lebanese cards online

I used my BoB skip card with Xtremeskins for a 12$ order, they didn't accept it at all, then I tried with dbrand for the same amount it was accepted but after the order they flagged my order as "suspicious" and that they have to review it!
Looks like many websites are not accepting our cards or they note them as suspicious. At this rythme Lebanon will be like North Korea

Re: Paying with Lebanese cards online

My dbrand payment order was rejected while BoB sent an sms when I placed the order saying the payment was successful to dbrand
Looks like dbrand changed their mind about the Lebanese card and I lost 12$ in the process

Re: Paying with Lebanese cards online

Talked to Bob support, they said I have to pass by the branch and sign an opposition to the payment because it was indeed deducted from my account. I tried to talk to my account manager but she's not answering at all (tried like 7 times)

Re: Paying with Lebanese cards online

Have you ever used the Whish Money app?
I have downloaded the app, and I see the option to "Popup" the account and another option to "Cash out" money. And so I was wondering if this is a solution to convert CC USD (fresh) to cash?

Re: Paying with Lebanese cards online

fuck the banks, anyone that wants to buy stuff online, many websites take crypto, i've done it myself and bought 2 50$ cards from keys4coins.com, open a binance account and buy some crypto and you can use it take buy stuff online, it's even better cuz the USD value is depreciating fast.

Re: Paying with Lebanese cards online

Hello guys.

I have a question. I have a Fresh Account Audi and would like to deposit money in a forex broker. They are using two payment gateways for visa cards, Exactly and CardPay. Tried both but it is declined always. Called the call center they say gambling websites is not allowed ! Then tried to buy crypto and send them to my forex broker, as they accept btc and usdt. I used ByBit to buy btc they have multiple payment gateways but non worked, all declined. So it seems impossible to trade forex or crypto in lebanon. Do you have any suggestions?
