I am not exactly sure what a maestro is, but it seems to be a sort of debit card. When people use the term credit card it includes all forms of bank and debit cards as well. If you are doing it through paypal, then you should be able to add it as a credit card. Then you can sign up for the trial with paypal.

For reference Maestro is a Master Card.

No, it isn't different at all. I mean Maestro means master and even the logo is the same with different colors. Taken straight from the Maestro site "Maestro® is part of the MasterCard family of brands. © 1994-2013 MasterCard. All rights reserved.".

You are supposed to type the 16-digit number that appears on the front of the card. However, not all Maestro cards have such a number and in that case, you can't use it with Paypal.

And for beardfist: Meastro is a different card system than MasterCard, even though they are from the same company.

I just meant that to use a card with paypal you have to specify a 'card type' and given the limited options, MasterCard would be the one to choose.

Have you actually tried following the instructions given? It shouldn't matter that it isn't technically a MasterCard, as long as the first number on the card is "5".
