    I recently closed one of my PayPal accounts and need to make a purchase. I'm waiting for the other to be verified but I expect it to be Monday before that happens.

    Can I use a Visa or AMEX gift card to purchase something through PayPal? The merchant accepts both PayPal and Credit Cards. Since the credit card is processed though PayPal, I'm curious if I will run into an issue.

    How does this work with address verification?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    This is retarded, I was going to explain why it does work but apparently that is against the rules. In a nutshell, been there done that and it works fine.

    It works, at least it did. I did it 2-3 years ago a pre paid mastercard I got as a gift.

    They should be accepted anywhere ccs are so just plug in the number.

    you can verify it with Payoneer Debit PrePaid MasterCard as well (mine is also verified with a Payoneer card), but it's not too much help, if you're in a hurry, because the shipping time is up to 10 business days
    the card has a $10.00 activation fee and $3.00 monthly maintenance fee
    you can apply for one, if you're an adult (18-19+) US resident without joining any of their partner programs
