You have doubts?

Credit / Debit card usage

Get your Developer Accounts ready in advanced! Make sure your Debit / Credit Card works with the Store! Why is your Card needed? It is ONLY used for the Windows Store Account ACTIVATION. In order for you to publish your App to the Windows Store, Microsoft will need to verify that your Windows Store Account is registered by you, a human (and not by a bot!). The Windows Store will do a Credit / Debit Card Verification by doing a Test Charge (RM4, and between RM10 to RM15). They will reverse back the charges after the confirmation. If this is your first time using your Card for an online transaction, please contact your Bank to enable online transactions. To qualify to win prizes in WOWZAPP 2012, You or Your Team will need to upload the Apps to the Windows Store by the end of the hackathon.
