Can you use a VCC for a future subscription, I added my VCC to a YouTube sub but they'll only bill the card for the first time next month by which time the CVV will have changed?
They push through a R8 charge now, that gets refunded immediately.

Can you use a VCC for a future subscription - Yes but depends on background payment method.
I have VCC loaded on apple and it does NOT require a CVV each month. Uber does not ask for CVV for each purchase etc

Have the same VCC for youtube and have to remove card and reinsert each time for payment as the CVV changes and causes an error. Same with PSN etc...

That's what I was expecting but didn't get anything when I added it as a payment method.

When you mean it will work, you mentioned you have to re-add the VCC each month?

Mine has always been working on YouTube (since they introduced virtual cards) but last week the payment declined due to CVV. I had to create another virtual card and add it as a payment method for YouTube.

I don't understand this, the CVV On a VC expires within days or hours, so do you re-add the Vc on the day the sub is due to come off or else what is the need to re-add it each month?

FNB saves the CVV for the sub. No need to update it.

Any idea where the 'My Family' tab is that they are referring to in the screenshot? I've checked everywhere, no such tab exist

But I thought the whole point of a VC was the CVV gets changed every few hours to prevent fraudulent use of your cc?
In my very limited understanding it goes something like this. The merchant authenticates the card once using the CVV and they can then repeat the transaction on the authenticated card without the need for CVV. New merchants or standalone transactions would require the CVV again.

The smart spend calculator awarded me another level on the 29th, but never actually credited the award to my Ebucks account.

Anyone else experienced anything similar? Thought would correct, but has been a few days now.
