Few days back I posted about paying Facebook advertisements using a Digipurse Credit Card in India. But unfortunately, we faced problems in that method. We all know that Facebook doesn’t accept debit cards of India as Indian debit card has 3D secure protocol and cannot be charged by international merchants. This problem restricts many online marketers and bloggers to use the Facebook ad network. So today I will be sharing another trick using PayPal and Entropay, an another legal way to pay Facebook ads without any problem! Tested and working! Follow the procedures and run your advertisements campaigns right now with Facebook!
Note: This method worked for me and Facebook deducted money successfully using my PayPal account. I would like to say that please proceed if you are taking responsibility on your own. We are not responsible for any losses or anything which you incur during the process.
So as we all know, debit card is not working with Facebook in India, we are going to use PayPal with Facebook. In PayPal, we are going to link the Entropay Virtual Credit Card (VCC) which can be topped up by any Indian debit card! So no need of credit card to pay Facebook. If you use this method, you have to pay some amount to Entropay for using their services and also to PayPal. So there will be nominal fees for paying with PayPal.
Let us see how we can achieve this! We have mentioned all necessary steps which you have to follow. If you are not able to understand, please feel free to comment below!
First of all, you should have Entropay VCC or Virtual Credit Card. Open an Entropay account and load money in it. Follow below procedure. If you already have skip this step.
Open Entropay Account.
- Go to Entropay website and sign up for an account.
- Submit all original details properly.
- After registration and email verification, you will get a card.
- You won’t get card details until you pay. You can load $5 to $500 in your Entropay VCC.
- Entropay will charge 4.95% extra.
- After successful transaction, you will get the card details along with CVV and expiry details.
Now you are done with this part! Note that you can use this credit card directly in Facebook also. But many people reported that Facebook deactivates VCC immediately and ask for ownership details which will take months to verify. So do not add this card directly on Facebook. Rest assured that Entropay is a legit website as it is a part of Visa.
After creating Entropay card, go to your PayPal account and add this card!
Add Entropay in PayPal.
I assume you have PayPal already. If not please sign up for PayPal and verify your PayPal account with your bank. I assume you have an original and verified PayPal ID.
- Go to PayPal and log in.
- Go to “Add Card” section and add this Entropay card there.
- Now PayPal will add this card successfully because Entropay is an international virtual credit card.
Now you are done with PayPal as well. Now you have to add PayPal as a payment method in Facebook ad account!
Add PayPal as Payment Method in Indian Facebook Ad Account.
- Log into your Facebook account.
- Go to Facebook Ads Manager by clicking on “Manage Adverts” on the top right drop down menu.
- Click on your active ad account.
- Click on “Account Settings” tab. It will ask you the password. Enter your password and proceed.
- Change your currency to “US Dollars”. Leave the time zone as it is and click on “Create New Account”.
Changing currency or time zone in Facebook ads leads to creation of new ad account. So your previous ad account will be deactivated and one new ad account will be created with USD as the primary currency. Please do not confuse it with your Facebook account. Your Facebook account will be same. Only a new ad account for your Facebook will be created.
After doing this go to advert manager again and go to billing section. Under “Payment Methods”, click on “Change payment method”. After that click on “Add payment method”. You will get an option for PayPal now. Just click on PayPal and continue with the authorization process of Facebook and PayPal.
That’s it! You are all done! Now create a cheap ad campaign and use your money to get more exposure on Facebook! This is just a one-time process. After this, if your Entropay balance is finished, you can simply add money to Entropay and all will go smooth! This method works well as of now. Please proceed if you are ready to take the risk.
If you have any problem regarding this please feel free to comment down. I will reply as soon as time allows.
