    Thanks for the feedback. We agree, and we’re looking into doing this in the next calendar year.

    In the interim, if credit card limits are a concern, you do have the option to pay by check or wire transfer. Please contact Support to get this set up.

    Over two years and still no movement on this.
    I have two things to add now:

    1. A Visual Studio subscription now requires and Azure subscription - which requires a credit card. This is a huge problem, as many people don't have credit cards.

    2. The payment portal for Azure allows you to enter debit card details, but returns with a vague error that suggests you call your bank. For now can you just make it clearer in both your documentation and your payment error responses that Debit Cards are NOT yet supported?

    Here's the twitter discussion I had with Azure support. They suggested I raise a billing ticket, which is a waste of everyone's time. Note that even those manning the Azure Support twitter account didn't know that Direct Debit wasn't supported. https://twitter.com/Squiggle/status/1039811018199887872
