    Does HDFC Bank Easy Shop international debit card work on skrill nowdays?
    I have this card and used to work earlier but recently skrill is giving the following error:
    “Your transaction was declined. Contact your card issuer to confirm you have sufficient limits and balance and try again. If problem persists, please contact us.”
    If it does not work then will i need to upgrade to HDFC Bank Platinum Chip debit card? Please can you confirm whether the HDFC Bank platinum chip debit card works on skrill currently? Thank you

  5. Hello sir,
    does HDFC Bank Easy Shop International debit card work on skrill nowdays? This is because i am getting an error on skrill that the card issuer has blocked the card.

Is there any other method to upload funds to skrill using HDFC Bank card? Else, are you aware of any other bank debit card (such as icici bank or SBI) that is still working on skrill? Please advise. Thank you.
