Unable to to register a child Apple ID


I am just trying to register an Apple ID for my son (Settings -> iCloud -> Family). I constantly face the error of “A credit card is required” and “Go to iTunes & App Store Settings and tap on your Apple ID to add a valid credit card to your account” even I added a valid credit card to my profile.
Please share if anyone experienced and solve the problem. Thanks


According to Apple Policy, we can create an Apple ID for a child with using only Credit cards. I suppose you did not select “Credit Card” at the payment method.
What you should do is:

First, login to your account from iTunes, then change the payment method to credit card. You then are able to create Apple ID for your son. If you want, go back iTunes to switch the payment method back to debit card.
