I doubt if they will be strong-arming yahoo or google in this way, so I'm going to be declined repeatedly and annoyed to try to do purchases with this card.
I have heard of cc numbers that are one-time, but what I would like to find is a cc company that does "per merchant" cc numbers. This is the way it would work:
- I request a new number from the Cc website, and then give that number to the merchant. There is no card, and the charges roll up to my main visa card.
- But that number is only valid for that merchant.
- So if a charge ever shows up from someone else, then we know who gave the card out, and it will be declined.
Do we know of any CC companies that provide this service?
I don't want a one-time visa card service since that means two trips to websites to make a single purchase. I'd like to have merchants save these one-merchant card number to save me time to make my usually small purchases.
