Please list merchants where you’ve used virtual cards for recurring/subscription and/or ad-hoc transactions without the need to recapture the CVV.
I will update this post every so often..

FNB uses dynamic cvv which changes hourly.. not all merchant acquirers register/store pre-authorization(could be done via token etc) which means subsequent transactions require updating CVV.

Note there can be a distinction between a subscription(same cost monthly), settlement(monthly, post consumer initiation) & ad-hoc(consumer initiated, irregular) purchase.

Only suggest addition if you have done > 2 transactions (> 1hr apart).

Merchants services listed below retain auth (thus do not need recapture of CVV):

  1. Apple
  2. Google
  3. Microsoft
  4. Amazon
  5. Audible(Amazon)
  6. Shomax
  7. Netflix
  8. YouTube
  9. PnP Asap / Bottles
  10. Uber/UberEats
  11. Absolute Pets
  12. Spotify
  13. Steam
  14. Orgin
  15. Uplay
  16. Discord
  17. Xbox Game Pass(Microsoft)
  18. F1 Tv
  19. Garmin Pay
  20. Afrihost
  21. Admyt
  22. Kaching
  23. OneDayOnly *
  24. Vox
  25. Naked Insurance
  26. PayPal

* = not sure

Merchants that requires re-capture of CVV(for every transaction ad-hoc or subscription):

  1. Checkers Sixty60
  2. Zapper
  3. Snapscan
  4. SweepSouth
  5. Takealot
  6. Rain
  7. uCook
  8. MrD

Just something that bothers me. Can’t find a list so figured we can populate this going forward..

In a perfect world your physical card is disabled and every merchant uses a unique card.

Anyone tried Amazon & Showmax? Also Google? AirBnB?

I’m always hesitant with subscription services as when it fails it’s usually 2am and then I need to fix asap especially for storage data/compute services.

Can confirm. Google works.

Mr D.

Showmax and Amazon both work. I've moved over all my subs to get the eB points. Netflix and Google/YouTube Premium have already been mentioned...

FNB doesn’t allow us poverty people (Aspire) gets eB points for subscriptions anymore. That sucks.

Takealot doesn’t work last times I purchased something last month? I use virtual card but since it’s ad-hoc it’s a pain but bearable (non-subscription) and still safe wrt card number exposure.
