Is it possible to redeem a Visa prepaid giftcard to a PayPal balance?

Hi PayPal cumminty,

I always wanted to buy my favorite games online, or at least something in my games. The onyl problem that stopped me from doing so is a bank account. I am 18 years old of age but yet still to have a bank account. So my question is, is it possible to redeem a Visa prepaid giftcard to a PayPal balance (without the use of a bank account)? 

Thanks,

No, it is against the card agreement to extract cash off the card to your PayPal account, also against PayPal terms of use. 

Register the card at card website. Then link and confirm the card at the Wallet page. Select the card as the funding source at checkout. Use it for non-subscription, one-time purchases only. Make sure the card has enough to cover each purchase.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
