I am trying to pay for something where a merchant has stopped using Paypal but provided other choices.
I saw Google pay and was trying to add my debit card.

I was astounded to come across this:


There are TWO months on there, one for "Start date" and the other for "expiry date" and I think it is plain stupid not to specify which one they are looking for or maybe things have changed and I am the one who is stupid and they expect me to know which one. What I don't want to do is put incorrect information in there and have a block put on my card and account.

When I paid for things by card I never really had this problem before where it was clear what they were asking for.  I remember some of them want both, one or the other before the numbers on the back.

There was only one occasion and that was from a very long time ago. In 2004 I brought 1GB of PC3200 Corsair XMS memory from a place called overclockers.co.uk. As I was trying to pay for it there was a requirement to put in an "issue number" but I didn't have such a number on my bank details or on the card and it failed.

So I called the bank and I was told to put 0's in there and it worked.

I should have posted a picture of what I mean but thanks to to Monek linked from his post:


I have edited the title "Google Pay STUPIDITY" to "Google Pay CARD CONFUSION" as I have now discovered that card details are not all standardized as I thought they were and are different by country.

They usually only ask for the expiry date to be written down, to make sure you are not using an expired card. But I agree that this is a mess, but I actually meant that for the first time I see that the card has the date it was issued. Amazing! Besides that I can't help but notice that there are already plenty of sources that help with this, like https://casinosanalyzer.com/online-casinos/google-pay I use this one because here are plenty of payment methods, like google pay, here this is made very comfortable and it is made very clear what and how.

Not just UK.  NZ cards have both dates, but i've never seen anyone ask for the valid from date.

Some Australian cards have a valid from date, but they are uncommon. That date really has no bearing outside of "When can I use my card?".

Typically with most banks here, once you receive your renewal card, it's active straight away (or you have to manually activate it using your banking app/website). Once you start using the new card, the old card becomes invalid automatically.
