Transfers to Advanced Cash EUR cards are temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The same with USD cards. Only for me or a major issue?

Edit: Update with news from AdvCash:

Hello,

Thank you for contacting Advanced Cash support center.

As Wave Crest, our current card solution provider, is unilaterally shutting down our card program, please, read the information below:

- you can not fund your plastic and virtual Advanced Cash cards anymore and you won't be able to
- all existing plastic and virtual cards can be used for transactions if there are funds on them, until they are closed permanently on February 27, 2018
- currently ATM withdrawals are allowed with a daily limit of EUR 1000 / USD 1000 in SEPA countries and EUR 500 / USD 500 outside the SEPA zone
- there are no new limits concerning POS transactions in shops

All plastic and virtual cards will be reissued for free after we implement the card platform from our new provider which is about to happen soon.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

hats off that advcash didnt shut down, even though their business is crashing infront of them. i really respect that.

however, i, as anyone else, has to move on. this is not a problem that can be solved. VISA is behind all this bullshit, pusing Mastercard to cancel their co/op with all banks/payment systems that has connections to crypto.

you better look for debit cards which doesnt have any connections to crypto, and exchange via localbitcoins or likely, and fill with cash somehow. its fucked up

I think advcash has a much greater business than just debit cards. It's a kind of paypal (i didn't know them if not for the card anyway). They will not be much affected by this shutdown I think. For example xapo and wirex will, instead.

We'll see what's going on, they mention a new provider for their card but not more info for now.
By the way I just received my card from epayments.com
Luckily I registered with them a while ago, they allow transfer from a bitcoin address to your wallet. I'll try the card later.

Yes it does.
The day after the westcrest problems, all the banks in the world decided to ban all exchangers. And also they have rejected to ban trading for all bank-employees.
The banks is saying it is an "unmorally" coin used for moneylaundering.

Seems that everyone have to move on.

It is a shame, and there is a big market there, for sure a lot of people is working hard looking for sollutions.
Meanwhile, I will try to fund my VISA wit CEX.io, lets see (don't like very much this option, but may be is faster than bank transfer)

Let's see some news. I do not think that they would shut down cryptos so easy

I have very little hope for this kind of service to come back. I think the BTC cards are over.

I've searched around some information on the wavecrest shutdown, and found a couple of articles with visa declaration that it was not an actions agains cryptos:

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/05/some-cryptocurrency-backed-cards-dropped-from-visa-network.html  (last part)

let's keep fingers crossed.

Excuse me, but are you blind?

"Our actions were not specific to cryptocurrency," Visa said in the statement, "but rather reflect the issuer's failure to comply with Visa's policies that ensure the safety and integrity of our payment system."

"Visa's policies that ensure the safety and integrity of our payment system."

They even admit they are on a war against crypto, and is cutting the helping hand.

No - maybe this was not "specific to cryptocurrency", - however, this was specific "to all mandkind who is trying to compete with us"

But who else is competing? Do you see this hit other currencies or companies, than BTC exchangers? No..............

This is both a war, and the start of a more regulated Bitcoin market.

If you ask me, its the people in the EU parlament who can see all these money, and they just want a part of it in the local countries around the globe now.
Those fuckers down their are so greedy and knows how to play their cards.
They have connections to exactly the type of people who is behind VISA.

First of all, I must clarify I am basically pessimistic like you and sadly I agree with the "war theory"

But, I also wanted to point out that visa told not to be in war against cryptos but against wavecrest violations.

In another declaration they told "to have other business currently working and involved with cryptocurrencies"

at the current stage, the "war theory" is only an hypothesis.

Because in reality it has already stopped, and theres no reason people put in $15k with 7 days left, and 1000$ withdrawal limit per day.
It stopped to give people a chance to empty their accounts.

https://www.skrill.com/en/siteinformation/fees/

For people whos able to use skrill.

However you cannot withdraw USD/EUR which has been deposited via BTC (exchange fee 1% when you deposit BTC)
But you can transfer like 2k usd to a bookmaker, and play a little, and then withdraw to Skrill again. When you recieve these funds from the bookmaker, its cleared for withdrawal on mastercard.
