They won't take Maestro or whatever it's called. They'll take a whole bunch of cards like American Express, Diners Club, Click 'n Buy etc.

I use a VISA Electron, which is a VISA debit card. Accounts are pretty easy to set up on either a current or savings account with most banks.

This is in the UK though.

I don't know about Click 'n Buy, but just about everything else should be available in Canada. You of course have to be over 18 (don't know about Canada) to have a credit/debit card unless you buy a VISA/Mastercard gift card which you can use here too. The best advice I can give you is to link your bank account with your Paypal account to make purchases.

A debit card from say RBC or TD Canada Trust are not accepted as they don't offer Interac for us.
But you can use your bank account via paypal, which is almost the same as Interac when paypal is set properly.

Here you go.

Sorry to necro but I figure not worth a new thread to ask.
What do you mean TD doesn't offer interac? Also, PayPal says it takes 3-5 days to add money onto it from debit. When I try to pay through PayPal using my debit, it says to add a debit/credit as back-up in-case the payment fails (As apparently I can't make instantaneous payments?)

I just want to be able to use my damn Debit Card. >:(

I was referring to using the cards with steam.
If your paypal account already has the funds, it won't take days.
Some people have claimed to instantly pay when their paypal account is linked to their bank account, but I have not seen evidence of that as it does not happen for me.

Adding my bit of confirmation.

Yes you can. I have http://mycanvascard.com/ for a couple years. works fine on steam. Infact Steam sees it as a credit card.

If I don't have enough money to pay for games, Steam will just simply tell me "Insufficent funds" and no games. If I go to reload more money on the card and try again, it's a sucess and I get the game on my steam account of 6 years.

I've gone through 2 of this kind of cards.

Of course it sees those as a credit card. That is due to the cards being issued by VISA.
