Choose country of origin for credit cards

#1

I just had this idea:

In Japan some services can only be paid with Japanese issued cards. A non-Japanese card gets rejected (for example in the Japanese iTunes Store).

What if you could choose that your card looks like a Japanese card? That would make payment possible for those services.

Thank you very much for reading.

Great idea!

That would be so useful to pay Spotify (or a similar service) cheaper by setting the card to a country where the monthly fee is cheaper than your local area :+1:t2: :+1:t2: :+1:t2:

Getting something cheaper is not my main intention. Being able to pay for those services is. It would be enough if that card would be virtual only.

Just get an Japanese iTunes gift card as a workaround.

Unfortunately that is the only way right now for us - or get an expensive JCB card. :laughing:

Germans and Austrians can get them. But its not worth applying for them. Those fees are totally insane. :scream:

You can’t get this. Services are geolocalized. That means revolut would break T&C of services like iTunes, Spotify, etc.

Why would Revolut break the T&C? It is the user of that service that does break the T&C, not the provider of the payment card, IMHO. My Revolut MasterCard has an issuing country of UK, my Revolut Maestro has issuing country Austria and my virtual Visa again UK. I live in neither of these countries.
If I would now try to get services either from UK or AT, which according to the T&C of that service, are not provided to me because of my geolocation, it is my problem if I work around their control system by using a Revolut card. It might even be against the T&C of Revolut as I am sure there is somewhere a section that you shall only use the services of Revolut in a legal manner.

+1 to this!

This would be fantastic, ESPECIALLY for virtual cards as it would make purchasing at some stores much easier
