Freecharge Go mastercard is a virtual credit card not debit card.

so, use credit card option while making payment.

FreeCharge GO isn’t accepted by all websites. paytm and mobikwik don’t allow transactions from FreeCharge Go card. You will be taken to transaction page. otp but atlast you will receive a message that bank doesnt approved the payment. May be FreeCharge’s plan not to allow on these websites.


I have used it with mobiqwik
It is having no problem.


I have use it in Paytm and faced no problem. You have select credit card option (not debit card) while making payment.


I am used with Paytm . I transferred my freecharge wallet balance to paytm wallet . No isssue.
