No, not with a debit card. But with a CHECK card, yes. The difference is that a check card has a Visa or Mastercard logo on it.

You can also use Paypal which does not require a credit or debit card, just a savings or checking account.

    Yes, of course you can. I do it all the time.

    (If your debit card is the kind that has the Visa logo on it, there should be no problem at all.)

    It has to be a debit card that has a credit card logo on it like Visa.

    Yes you can, but it needs to be a debit card with a visa function. These are like a prepaid debit card.

    You should ask at your bank whether you can use the card like that.

    I would suggest setting up a prepaid debit card like this instead of your usual card. That way, if someone gets your details on a not so honest website, they can't clear all the cash out of your usual account, only the one that you use online.

    Best wishes
