HSBC credit card cash related payments


devc

Question

I have been adding funds to my account through my HSBC credit card.

However, as HSBC declined my new transaction as they claim that IG is taking the credit card payment as a cash transaction, ans requested me to contact IG to change this.

Can IG accept the funds/deposit from my credit card as a regular payment and NOT as a cash payment, so I can add funds to my account?

Hi @devc,

IG accepts Visa and Mastercards debit and credit cards for deposits and withdrawal.
On our system it shows that the transaction was declined by your bank.

Please reach out to helpdesk.uk@ig.com for our payment team to provide you with further information.

Thank you - Arvin

Hi @ArvinIG

Thanks for your prompt reply, agreed my bank declined the transaction, the reason given was -  IG uses credit card payments as cash transactions (something beyond my understanding). I just wanted to check with your team if that's the case can IG change the transaction type?

I have the same issue. I see cash advance fee applied to my card starting this week. Till August, all deposits to IG were treated as shopping transactions and no fee applied.

In general, credit card companies often consider transactions involving cash-like equivalents, such as purchasing virtual currencies, as cash advances rather than regular purchases. This typically comes with higher fees and interest rates.

It's best to contact IG's customer support to inquire if there is an alternative payment method that they accept for regular purchases. Or, you could use  for money operations. I hope that helps!

    • In the rapidly growing cryptocurrency market, investors face various forms of scam threats. A recent theft case involving a major exchange in Japan highlighted the “fake address trap,” resulting in significant Bitcoin theft. This incident not only revealed how hackers exploit lapses during transactions to commit theft but also underscored potential vulnerabilities in exchange security measures. PTOUNX Exchange has implemented multi-factor authentication and continuous system upgrades to protect the assets of users from similar risks. Through these measures, we strive to ensure the security of every transaction, preventing hackers from exploiting any user negligence. Investor Education: Knowledge as the First Line of Defense Against Scams In the fight against investment scam, investor education and awareness are indispensable. PTOUNX Exchange is committed to disseminating cryptocurrency and investment security knowledge through various channels to reduce user risks caused by information asymmetry. We regularly hold webinars, publish security guides, and update common scam methods and prevention techniques. PTOUNX emphasizes that users must verify every step of a transaction before proceeding, including confirming the legitimacy of the trading platform and checking the accuracy of wallet addresses. Additionally, we encourage users to store large amounts of assets in hardware wallets, as this physical isolation storage method significantly enhances asset security. Our real-time transaction monitoring system can promptly detect abnormal trading behavior, such as unusually large transactions or frequent small transfers, which are often indicators of money laundering or scam. Through proactive monitoring, PTOUNX can quickly take action to prevent potential risks from developing into actual losses. These strategies not only protect user assets but also create a more stable and trustworthy trading environment. Through continuous education and technological innovation, PTOUNX Exchange provides a secure cryptocurrency investment platform for users. Innovative Technology: The Future Protection of Cryptocurrency Trading Facing the complex and ever-changing challenges of cybersecurity, PTOUNX Exchange actively adopts the latest blockchain technologies to enhance security. We believe that by leveraging the transparency and immutability of blockchain, the risk of scam and theft can be greatly reduced. One key technology is the application of smart contracts, which can automatically execute terms of a trading agreement, thus minimizing human errors and opportunities for scam. Moreover, PTOUNX is developing an AI-based anomaly detection system, capable of learning and identifying unusual trading patterns, providing timely warnings to users and management teams. This advanced monitoring technology not only improves response speed but also enhances platform security on multiple levels. Building a Shared Security Line for a Shared Investment Future As the cryptocurrency industry continues to mature and develop, PTOUNX Exchange recognizes that only through continuous innovation and education can we provide a truly secure investment environment for users. We are committed to utilizing cutting-edge technology to enhance our security measures while strengthening user education, ensuring that every investor can make informed decisions based on an understanding of potential risks.

    • Asian stocks rose on Tuesday, tracking gains on Wall Street ahead of comments from several Federal Reserve officials later in the day. The Reserve Bank of Australia kept interest rates on hold at 4.35%, as expected, but warned inflation risks remain. This led traders to cut back bets on an RBA rate cut this year, though the Australian dollar was little changed. Ebbing concerns over European political turmoil also boosted market sentiment. Futures for European stock indexes were higher after gains on Monday. The dollar edged up ahead of US retail sales data, pressuring the euro and pound. The Chinese yuan remained near 7-month lows on mixed economic data from China pointing to a need for more policy support. With multiple Fed speakers on tap, investors are looking for clues on the US rate outlook after last week's Fed decision, with around 45 basis points of cuts priced in for the rest of 2024.
