Could you tell which preposition do I use in the sentence below: for, with or on?

I'd like to set up automatic payments for/with/on my debit card.

  • I'd use "using". Mar 1, 2021 at 22:50

    Which one do you mean? They all mean something different Mar 1, 2021 at 22:59

    In my experience, one sets up automatic payments (either direct debits or a standing order) on a current account (to which a debit card may be linked). Mar 2, 2021 at 0:04
  • "on" is the most natural preposition to use

@RonaldSole is correct, the automatic payment is really a property of your account, not your card.

That being said, if you are going to be setting these up with/using your debit card, then say “with”/“using”.
