Question
Dear ZZ

Is it possible to design a single Debit/Credit Combo card?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
It's all a matter of processing.  Many cards which are issued by a banking system can be treated either way.  When presenting to the merchant it can be designated by the customer as either a credit card or bank debit card.

The processing is the key. The physical card is just a vehicle for interfacing with the transaction procedure which is more controlled by the processing then the design of the card itself.

Hope that makes sense for you.
