Hi
Can anyone confirm if a Capitec Debit account/card can do the following:
1. Purchase from Amazon.com/uk/others.
2. Purchase from Gearbest.
3. Linked with Paypal just in case I want to use it as a payment method.
4. Purchase from Steam.

Why wouldn't it? Works everywhere Mastercard is accepted...

Well, Standard Bank debit cards don't do international purchases and it's a mastercard, that's why I'm asking.
I'm holding my Standard bank debit card in my hand and NOWHERE does it say Mastercard. Only Maestro. My Standard Bank cheque card says Mastercard and works with online purchases.

Yes to all of the above. I don't know if you will still need to go into a branch to authenticate and set up the securcard thingy from Mastercard.

Update: Got my card today and they set up everything(online shopping included). Linked it with paypal with no issues and bought a code from cdkeys to test it out. Works like a charm.
