    Yes, if there's money on it. No, if there's no money on it.

    If 1 registerar doesn't accept it go to another. Plenty of competition out there.

    Ah naturally theres money on it, I know some places wont accept it due to the inability to verify the identity of the owner.

    Thanks for the quick answers

    If you do it could you post what domain registar you used. I'm sure it will help others on here.

    I have used the Simon Gift Cards on Namecheap many times without a problem. You just need to make sure you go to the Simon website, activate the card for online use, and enter a fake name, address, etc...

    I bought about $750 worth of domains using this method.

    I am sure your success/failure will probably depend on what Giftcard / VCC you use.
