Cannot pay on giffgaff

Cannot pay on Giffgaff website, it would tell me that the card is invalid

I’ve had the same problem before. I think the reason may be that some websites see the Revolut card as a credit card. The only way around this I found was to select a Mastercard credit card option on checkout. This, however, may incur some extra fees

You can check the card type on any BIN checking website (e.g. www.bincodes.com/bin-checker). Just fill in the first 6 digits of your card and you should see smth like
