I'll be soon moving to USA from India and I've decided not to get a credit card. Instead, I'll own a debit card.
The thing is that in India, we do not often use cards and being honest, I've never swiped my debit card (or any card) in the machine. So, I'm not sure if my debit card would work in the swipe machine because in most of the movies/media, it is kind of reflected that those swipe machine works with credit card only.
I'm just not sure. Also, if debit card indeed work with swipe machine, then I'd be glad if you can tell me how do I go about using them (swiping, then what?). My question sounds dumb but honestly, I haven't used them ever and neither any person around me. So, that's it. :)
