Setting Up Shop - Etsy Won't Validate My Debit Card

I've been trying since last night to get Etsy to validate my debit card (Visa) in my account set up so I can get my shop opened and it keeps coming back saying I've entered the number, the expiration date or the CCV code incorrectly. I have not. I've sent two e-mails to Etsy and gotten no response.

Any help would be appreciated.

Contacting Etsy directly is all you can do. We cant do anything for you here, we are members just like you, not people who work at etsy :/
Its almost 11am at the offices now, so they should be going through their emails and responding. I would just wait until you get a response.

Do you have another card you can try linking?
If not, then it seriously is probably how you are entering the numbers...

A debit card should work. Don't put spaces between numbers - that will mess it up.
I use the same debit card for both shops, so there shouldn't be a problem with the card.
I have entered the numbers correctly and I'm not putting spaces in. Thanks for your responses.

I'll just wait to hear from them. Wish they had a phone number available.
FYI-I never use my debit card online-I have a regular " paid off monthly" credit card for all that, due to security reasons. Could it be a Debit card issue?
My credit card features two sets of numbers on the back of my card - the ccv code - does yours?
I've gotten the same thing, and I did contact my bank and Etsy.
Apparently, my cards are microchipped and Etsy only allows magnetic strip cards, which is, well , a bummer for me cos our country ONLY has chipped cards.Etsy should do some allowances on this. Oh yeah and I can't use PayPal either.

I set up a separate checking account with no checks and debit card only, which rarely has much money in it, specifically for use online. It works fine without worrying about it.
Kathy...when I recently had a problem with my debit card online, I was typing inthe wrong set of numbers for the CCV...my card has two sets of numbers:)
justgive - Kathy has her shop set up now. Her OP is 3 days old.

vivos revived it, but I honestly am not sure how to answer or what suggestions to give.
