Online shopping has taken off in Pakistan, and you can even order products on Amazon and have them delivered to you (albeit at very high shipping rates). But the one thing you need for this, and convenient shopping elsewhere, is a credit card.

We’ve made a list of all the credit cards available in Pakistan for your convenience, and mentioned those banks that do not have credit cards as well.

Shopping online with Credit Cards
Most Pakistani banks do not allow online shopping without notification. Before you make your online purchase, call your bank’s customer support phone number and ask them to activate your credit card for online usage. After you have confirmed your identity, they will activate your card for online use, and once you are done making your purchase you can de-activate it once again.
While internationally this is not a normal practice, in Pakistan this has been put in place to protect against credit card fraud. Never give your credit card information to anyone and keep your credit card in a safe place to avoid misuse.
