Mastercard refuses to "add funds" to Goldmoney account

I tried 2 different Mastercards today to add funds to my holding. Both cards had zero balances. Both transactions were declined. A phone call from one M/card bank explained that Mastercard now has a policy that declines this type of transaction as being "quasicurrency" related. The Gmoney account is on their list. I explained that it was a simple funds transfer to buy gold not cryto etc. They said no.

    Weird considering MasterCard was the issuer of Goldmoney cards.

    It would be nice if the Goldmoney team starts answering some of the questions up here.

    One bank (MBNA) told me Goldmoney was "quasicurrency". Bank of Montreal phoned me and unblocked the transfer of funds for me.
    I apologize for hitting the roof too soon. Guess it depends on the professionalism and intelligence of the bank. I am slicing the one card and keeping the other.

    That's wired. I have never had issue with Mastercard funding options with holding account. Cann't wait for GM to add ACH transfer like the personal account has.
