    Paypal wants the card to help verify the identity and location of the account holder, so it won't accept gift visa cards as the first card. The point is PP knows the gift cards aren't real, and for the most part can tell from the card number itself where the card comes from. Go get a vcc or a real reloadable debit card to verify first (if you go to vanillavisa's site, log in under the card number and edit the card info to indicate the same zip as the PP account, you can then add the gift card as a back up card to PP).

    With Vanillas Visa Gift card, about half of them still work for Paypal account but you need to search for the EXP date that work. There is a forum with the list of which Vanilla card working and not. Just google it

    Regular VCC's and Gift cards will not do for this. You are going to need an AVS VCC that way it is addressed
    verified and confirms your location and address.

    Cheers,

    You can verify vanilla cards, I just did the other day. You can verify the card with a zip of your choice, then if you want you can add other info to the card. I tried using the vanilla before registering it with the zip and it did not work. It worked fine after doing that. Not sure where you live, but when I went to pick up my vanilla cards there were paypal-specific reloadable debit cards and all sorts of other types of cards that I haven't seen before. I think those things might be worth checking out. Best of luck to you

    I bought vanilla gift card $25 from Wall-greens yesterday and i tried to add the card to my stealth paypal account, but they didnt take it. I guess vanilla gift card doesnt work for Paypal no more. Can you please tell me which card is working for paypal right now? And there are 2 options when we add the card, saving and checking, which one we choose?
    The main purpose of this card is to verify stealth paypal account. What if i want to withdrawn my money from Paypal to my real bank account? if I add my real info bank account, will it be linked to my suspended account?
    Thanks for you help, this forum is very helpful.

    I have a card I have used for over a year, easily verified from paypal, transfers from paypal to the card/account no problem. I actually have done this with some sizable amounts, the card is not only free but they will load it with $20!! PM me if you like.

    VanillaVisa network includes Netsend and American Express. You could use it to reload American Express if you have one. If you don't you could open a Netsend account and reload it. Netsend is used to accept online payments. I know about this because I've used the one-time use VanillaVisa for online payments. The reloadable VanillaVisa uses those networks.
