Its not TD, I have a CIBC visa debit with the exact same issues you've listed. Its a Visa debit issue. Pretty much useless at this point and time.We got this new TD debit card with a Visa logo not too long ago. New card has a Visa number on it, as opposed to our old TD debit card which just had the debit card number.
So I go to pay my Wind bill online, like always, only to discover that I can't use the pay by interac function. (The field where you enter your card number doesn't allow enough digits.) I looked into this a bit more, and it seems to be a current TD limitation.
Ok then, that's why I've got this Visa logo, right?
Try paying using the Visa option on Wind's site... and it fails. Something about the financial institution denying the transaction.
Try again using the *123# code, and it fails again.
Call customer service, and of course they're no help at all... they just tell me over and over again to pay using the website. They can't understand what I'm trying to tell them because they don't really understand English, despite the fact that they can speak it, somewhat.
So I drag myself to the mall, and pay in person using the debit card. Awesome.
That was yesterday.
Today, I decide to order my fiancee a device from the Google Play store. Of course since Google doesn't see fit to sell directly to us Canadians, I'm forced to VPN into a relatives network in the US, and attempt to make my purchase via Visa. That ended with "Payment Method not supported".
Did I mention these new TD Visa Debit cards are NFC enabled? Well, they are! Don't get too excited though, because the NFC functionality is completely useless at the present time. Tried it at Timmys, Esso, and somewhere else which escapes my memory at present... not supported.
I guess this has less to do with Wind, and more to do with TD issuing useless crap that doesn't work as advertised. Just figured I'd throw it out there so you folks know what to expect if you happen to have TD and are considering a card "upgrade".
