Got a couple of stickers during the Blind Man's Rally, thanks to GTO and put those up in a hurry. Will order a couple of sets right away for myself and anyone in Pune who'd like some.

EDIT: Ordered 2 sets

These virtual cards are meant to pay for Net based shopping and come with all the details that a regular card has. When the merchant bills the card it gets utilized and the money is deducted from your account.
Thanks Zappo followed your instructions and placed my order. Now waiting for the stickers to arrive.

Exclamation An alternate payment mechanism

An alternate payment mechanism
Note from the backend team

So you do not have a credit card and of course no Paypal account either. Now thats a little problem. The store says that it accepts payments either through credit cards or else via Paypal accounts only.

Now these two modes cover most people. However we do understand that some of you find yourselves out in the cold with either of these methods. So we did some research and found another method of payment. This method of payment requires you to have an HDFC account. We describe the method below.

2. Once logged in, you mention the exact amount for which the virtual credit card is needed. The UI is fairly straight forward and only needs you to enter the amount for which a virtual card is needed and press the GO button.

3. Based on this a virtual credit card is generated on the fly. This virtual card has a valid Credit Card number, an expiry date and a CVV number as well.

4. You use these details to pay for your stickers.
You need to remember a few things

2. The virtual card so generated is valid for the next 24 hours or so. If the card is not used within that time it expires and the money returns back to your account.

3. Every virtual card is a 1 time usage card. In other words you can not generate a big value card and then hope to keep using it for the next few days in parts for your shoppings.

4. We suggest that before you generate your card use the Paypal site to reach till the payment stage. Here the site will show you the exact amount inclusive of the exchange rate (remember the payment is in dollars) that it intends to charge your card. Note down this value and then generate your Netsafe card for the exact amount. The exchange rate varies everyday. So the exact Rupee value that Paypal shows today may not remain the same tomorrow. Check just before you generate the card.

Regarding the last point it is possible that you do not have a real card in hand to reach the review and confirm stage where Paypal shows you the amount it intends to charge. Unfortunately there is no getting around this obstacle. You do need to provide the card details before you reach that final screen where it shows the exact rupee figure.

If you have a real card which you do not intend to use for the transaction then you can use that cards detail to reach the final screen and then once you know the figure you can click the button to make some changes. This will mean Paypal won't charge the card and return you back to the previous screen. Now you can input the Netsafe card details which you would have generated based on the rupee figure in the last screen.

On the other hand if you do not have a real card handy we suggest that you make a Netsafe card of around Rs.252 This will be approximately what Paypal will charge you, a few loose changes less maybe...
The Netsafe method is also useful for those who intend to borrow the credit card of their uncle, cousin, friend etc to do the transaction. If they have an HDFC account ask them instead to generate a Netsafe card for you online and use that card. They will be more comfortable this way as it will be a one time usage card which can not compromise them in any ways.

Happy shopping.

Similar feature is available in ICICI net banking too. One can create virtual credit card for online transactions, it is under ICICI Net banking->Credit Cards->Virtual Credit Cards.

Not really. That solution available under ICICI bank Infinity is of hardly any use. The ICICI Virtual Card expects you to have a real world ICICI credit card in the first place. The genesis of the problem here is that many of our members do not have any credit cards to begin with. With the HDFC bank solution you do not need a card to create Netsafe cards.

Though not directly related to this case but the second problem I see with the ICICI system is that it is not really much safe if your card detail leaks out through a bad transaction. That is because they allow you to hold one and only one virtual card against your real card. They bill you for that card every month along with that for your real card.

My point is that it is then hardly any safer than using the real card. If my virtual card number leaks out somehow then the thieves can still happily go ahead and use it for various Net based transactions. So safety wise also HDFC Netsafe card is much better as they generate a new card everytime for 1-time usage.

We can not say much about a similar service from Kotak Bank as we do not have any experience with them.
