Still the issue is not resolved???

I took this card to US to make my payment for my living expenses while studying here but I feel cheated as after weeks of follow-up this issue is still not resolved.

Bank should understand the plight of the customers.

I have tried enabling the international limit from IDFC app still not able to make payment.

Not available still, that’s even worse than SBI Bank

Worst service I ever purchased in my entire life.

We will request you to kindly follow the below steps in order to activate the spend abroad option in the IDFC app

  1. Kindly download the IDFC FIRST Bank (New)

  2. Go to the ‘Have option’

  3. Go to the card option

  4. Click on the card

  5. You will get option related to domestic and international

  6. The user will have to divide or key in the limit for domestic and International

​7. Enter the POS, ECOM, and ATM limits.

Please note it cannot cross the total limit of the card*

The IDFC FIRST Bank(new) app is not working it’s redirecting us to use the existing app.

It prompts - The new app will be launched in phases till then use the existing app.

I have tried using the existing app to enable the spend abroad option but still not working/not able to make any payment.

Kindly verify when will the new app start working and also till then atleast resolve the spend abroad issue.

Hey Aman! We are facing issues with certain features on this app and hence we had re-directed you to IDFC app or Netbanking services. The new app should also be available to all the users shortly. We sincerely regret the inconvenience. LK.
