  • Hello Dinesh,

    I'm facing same issue. You'll need to use email support option. Basically as I understand, while you use debit card, it is used to verify the card and nominal fees are charged. In my case it was INR 2.00. However, when you submit your first app, actual verification process starts. Microsoft will deduct some amount from the same debit card. You'll need to check the amount and confirm it on your dashboard. Once you confirm it, the amount will be re-deposited into your account. This is just for verification purpose and will happen for the first app you submit.

    I'll suggest, use http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/apps/hh690938 and click on Help with your developer account

    Hope, this helps.

  • Thanks for your reply sir. In my debit card also it credited INR 2.00. But Microsoft Customer support team mailed me by saying

    "It appears that you are being prompted to pass through the PICV verification for your payment method. This is a security process to complete your registration and verify your identity. What you will need to do is when it prompts you to enter the 3 digit code, this is not your CVV code. This is a code or very small amount of money that Microsoft will post to your credit card. You will need to login to your credit card statement and verify either the 3 digit code that appears on that transaction line or the amount that appears on that transaction line. If you fail 5 times, then it will lock you out and we will have to manually verify your identity. If you do not see the transaction on your statement, please call your financial institution and ask them over the phone to provide this information for you."

    Can I enter "2.00" in CVV Verification??

    Looking forward for your earnest reply...
