    Since my own experience with getting my paypal account limited upon submitting for a bank withdrawal last month, I decided that this time around, I would buy loaded Visa Gift cards rather than requesting a withdrawal.


    I was thinking about turning it into a business and selling cards to people who wanted to get their paypal out.... stealth mode... UNTIL LAST NIGHT.

    I needed paypal my self to send someone money and tried to get someone willing to exchange 2 of my $50 cards in the BHW Lounge with NO takers.


    So, my question is, is this a Bad idea and i shouldnt waste time and money getting it started.

    OR is it a good idea. If it is, what's the best percentage I should charge?


    Just looking for a little guidance.

    actualle that is not a bad idea. u gotta think how u r going to take the payments if u are getting limited by pp. but at best no extra fees charge. but if u wanna be greedy then charge a small fee. use ur creativity but of course i have not hear of this market but i know of pp who sells them.

    this is incredibly stupid. why would someone pay more then $50 for a $50 giftcard. the only way it would work is if you buy cards from people for less then they are worth then resell them for less then they are worth which a guy does that and he partnered with amazon (it was on sharktank)

    dont listen to negative and ignorant comments. it is a good idea. just twist it and be creative and it will work.

    Well there are people that sell preloaded VCC's of $100 for $145. I assume it's because there are people that buy it to get money out of their paypal and into that card.
