An online shopping portal is seeking ATM pin when I use debit card, is this normal?
Depending on the associated payment gateway when you use a debit card online or during a POS purchase you may be required to enter your ATM pin. There is nothing abnormal is this provided you are purchasing through a safe website and a safe payment gateway with SSL encryption or higher.
It is normal for a shopping site to ask for your ATM PIN instead of the One Time Password (OTP) sent to your registered mobile or the 3D secure PIN. This is often done to enable to shop quickly. For instance, ICICI Bank Debit Cards can be used on websites such as Amazon, MakeMyTrip and Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) to shop using your Debit Card and ATM PIN.
