Dollar Sign Debit card for ECFMG payment

I am trying to pay for my STep 2 which costs 935 dollars. My debit card has adequate money and neither does it exceed the limit for payment. I wonder why is the payment being declined? The bank is stating that its clear from their end... I wanted to ask whether ECFMG accepts debit card which is powered by VISA and does it accept payments on sunday?

Since it was a Pakistani debit card, it did not work so I had to use a credit card. If you have a US visa debit card, you would not have an issue

I used my father's credit card for it, since Pakistani debit cards can not used for online payments even if they are visa powered.
I dont know about Jordanian policies regarding online payments

Hello ...
Debit cards R useless based in my experience ...
Internet shopping cards do work , pre-paid master cards , visa electron surly work ...
for me I used a visa electron traveling card , expiration date in one year , charged in us dollars, cheap and doesn't need a name on it , the name was registered Anonymous , only draw back is it might not be as secure as other cards but I charged it with the exact amount I needed and used it immediately after ...
Only advice is to wait a day or two for it to be charged , as banks can test ur patience ...
