virtual card & a physical card differences?

Yes when I use Netflix I pay with my virtual VISA card. For other streaming services I usually use my disposable MasterCards. These also start with 5273.

Virtual VISA works there for me too. Not sure why it didn’t work for you. Basically I can use it for everything.

I know this is a big ask, but I would be very interested to know if your virtual MasterCard works with Netflix.

One thing in particular that makes me think this is a choice that Netflix are making is that the Revolut app shows absolutely no authorisation attempt or activity when I attempt to use the virtual card. Revolut seem to display all activity for a card, for example they show authorisation attempts for non-activated or disabled cards, or transactions refused due to security settings. To see nothing at all suggests to me it’s not making it as far as the issuer.

As of right now, I am not using Netflix at all. I can test it with my disposable MasterCard when I subscribe to Netflix again.
