Welcome to the former forums for DidYouKnowGaming?! In March of 2013, VGFacts was launched and this community was merged into the new forums there. These forums were originally taken offline at that time but I brought them back as an archive while transferring sites to the new server. Registrations and all interaction (posting, editing, moderation, etc.) are disabled but everything can still be read. If you're interested in joining the community, head on over to https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/ and join there but I've always thought it was important to preserve a site's roots so these forums will forever be available in this read-only state. Enjoy!

RE: I really am a noob (A thread about purchasing online)
Well first of all, it'd be useful to know your country because different countries have different security measures.
Main thing to do to buy with a debit card is
1 - Choose your item
2 - Go to checkout
3 - Select "debit card"
4 - Put in all your details
5 - Normally at this point, you'll be forwarded to your bank's page for more security questions
6 - Receive confirmation of purchase.

Do be careful though on which websites you use your debit card details. I only ever use mine for Amazon and big retailers that I trust. Remember, the numbers you put in can be saved by the other person and used to steal your money.
If you have a credit card, use that as you can then contact your card supplier and say "wut, I didn't buy this" and often they can give you your money back.
If you don't, ask if you can use your parent's credit card to buy things. If this is your first debit card, don't suddenly think "heyyyyyy I can buy things without my parents knowing" because that'll most probably lead to a LOT of spending Wink
