Does PayPal accept Visa Gift Cards?

I just need to know this one little question and my life will be made a whole lot easier: Can I create a PayPal account using my Visa gift card, or do they only accept credit/debit cards? Thank you very much for any information you can give me. =)

Re: Does PayPal accept Visa Gift Cards?

Welcome to the boards!


PayPal discourages the use of gift cards because they seldom pass our stringent security measures.  Members attempting to add a gift card may be unable to use the card, even if successfully registered.  In place of a gift card, we recommend adding a traditional credit or debit card.


Hope this helps,
