Forums Payment cards Virgin Atlantic Paying Virgin credit card balance over the telephone with Revolut

  • Skywalker 762 posts

    Afternoon, already noted Virgin Money doesn’t process card payments via the app anymore.

    Just tried to pay over the telephone with my Revolut card, and the bot voice stated that it was a credit card and that I cannot use it (?!)

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Seems like a lot of hassle for not a lot. I’m now paying my VA credit card by bank transfer directly from my Revolut account. Takes seconds.

    The new way of point the app to your other banking app is much quicker in my experience than having to type your card details in each time.

    Have you tried it? Usually takes me about 15 seconds to make a payment without having to enter any card details.

    Looks like Revolut are using a recycled BIN.

    Just checked the BIN (first six digits of card number) for my Revolut card (416549) and it comes up as a Visa Credit.

    Why not setup a Direct Debit to take the balance in full or pay by bank transfer?
