    Hi guys

    I do dropshipping on ebay. A few days ago created an amazon account. I'm really interested in buying gift cards but can't do it technically. Websites which sell them usually accept only US paypal accounts which I don't have yet. If I get us ebay+paypal account then I probably can buy it. But the problem is that guys who sell accounts on bhw marketplace usually have them without a bank account (ot it is virtual and you can't withdraw money to that account). Sometimes you need to pay using alternative method, not paypal! For example, I've just sold an expensive $570 item in ebay but I can't pay for it on supplier's website. It just shows an error. Just that particular item, I tried to buy something else using paypal and it works.

    I see two options which can be solution and I need your opinion:
    1) Using bitcoin. Gift card websites usually accept bitcoin. The problem is that I don't know anything about bitcoin. How to buy it, what is exchange rate. I've tried to do research in internet but got really confused. The good thing is that gift card website offer some discounts if you use bitcoin.

    2)If I buy us ebay+paypal account with fake documents, I can apply for everbank account in US. I've already spoken to them. They say they just need SSN and address(or proof of address, not sure).

    3) To apply for everbank using my real details and only use that account as a backup payment method. Im not a US citizen but from what I know I can apply for TIN (or ITIN) number. Everbank says they accept it.

    4) use fake documents from ebay\paypal account I buy on bhw marketplace and create payoneer acc. I already have one and linked it to amazon (real details). But again it is not US billing address there.

    Tnx guys

    I dropship outside of the US and I've been struggling with the same thing trying to fund a US account.

    Amazon does allow a balance top up (in fact last I saw they had a promo giving you $10 for topping up $100). Not sure if you can top up the account with a prepaid card or something. Maybe a PayPal card with a USD balance.

    I have a similar problem with buying gift cards (my location right now is eastern Europe) I was getting an error code from discount card seller at giftcard zen.So I tried few more same thing.I decided to call service turns out they payment verification system tracks your location by IP address and discount cards are for persons living in US&A(don't get it I thought it is free market, but whatever...} Now i'm thinking about software to hide my real ip.I hope it will help me with issue ...

    Maybe eastern Paypal shopping on an USA web-shop rises red flags?
