N26 MasterCard now works with An Post

The only place I’ve had issue using my N26 MasterCard was at post offices and purchasing prize bonds online. When I tried in the post office I was told the card was not supported. When purchasing prize bonds online the form threw an error saying the card number does not match card type.

The issue is the payment processor had the cards BIN number down (first six digits) as a credit card and not a debit card. I emailed An Post about the issue and received a reply very quickly. After about a week I received another response saying they updated the database and pushed the update to the post offices and online.

I haven’t had a chance to try the card again in the post office but it now works online with An Post Payments – I presume that it will work in post offices now as well. Overall, I have to say I’m very impressed with An Post as to how quickly they sorted out the issue – if only Leap Card could be as helpful…
