Why Dribbble accepts only credit card as a payment?

I’ve been trying to start Pro plan for my Dribbble and at the checkout all of my cards have been declined. After a few moments, I realized that Dribbble doesn’t accept simple debit cards, but only credit cards.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any reliable explanation of it in the support/FAQ section. And it’s the very first time I’m facing such situation with payment for online service.

Does anybody know a reason for such policy?

Edit: it looks that Dribbble despite info in FAQ accepts debit cards. After a short email to support, an error in checkout disappeared & they enabled me to pay with a traditional debit card.

    What? Such things still happen? Last time I had such problem maybe 10 years ago, back when debit cards couldn't pay in internet.

    Recently I had similiar issues with AirBnB. They declined both of my cards. I didn't check if they accept both credit and debit cards though. I was using debit.

    This sounds super odd to me. How did you come to this conclusion; given that you've stated there's no mention of it in their documentation?

      It is mentioned in their FAQ section that they accept only credit cards. They just don’t say why only credit cards.

      Moreover - I tried to pay with my bank card, Revolut and so on. All of those cards (which are debit cards) have been declined.

      I’m simply curious why they choose such policy - it’s not that usual for online services (I use many and never had such issue).
