MasterCard and Visa Pulled from Russian Banks

So with the growing number of sanctions from the USA and European union, has led to Companies like MasterCard and Visa to block/ban transactions from Russian banks.


With this in mind that any Russian bank card used locally and on Tech Guy SA may be declined via our checkout system used via Yoco.


This is not a decision from Tech Guy SA as we remain neutral in the situation.

The SMS we got earlier from Yoco

“(Yoco) Visa & Mastercard have suspended operations in Russia. Transactions on Russian bank cards are likely to be declined. STP to opt-out”
