    So I got a $25 Master Card

    .. How do I make it so I will see it on PayPal?
    I made an account on PayPal, but it shows that I got 0$

    with the cc as back up. you can use the paypal account and it will draw the funds from it. To add funds so they are visible in paypal you would have to make a sale or add a bank account to transfer from.

    So at this point w/ 25 card attached you can use the paypal account the balance will visibly stay 0, but any transactions you make will be paid from the card

    Yes.
    The $25 will not be in your balance but when you make a purchase since there is nothing else to take money from it will take it from the $25 card you put on there.

    this is spot on your card is basically as artfuldodger said used for backup funding...

    if you want to see the money in your paypal account you can always use this method:

    1) create a new gmail account

    2) login into your paypal account

    3) send a money request for $25 to your new gmail account

    4) login into your gmail open up the email you sent yourself click the backlink to paypal

    5) follow the steps and pay yourself the $25

    6) you will probably loose some money for the service fee but the funds will be in your paypal account

    im not sure if this is againt paypals T&C's though...

    hth

    if it doesnt work you will need to remove the tie from your paypal account to your mastercard...

    I guess I don't understand why you would need a "gift card" or any other card to get a paypal account. You say you used the gift card to open a Paypal account? I thought a Paypal account was opened without any money up front.

    Okay... So this is what I want to do:

    I have a TranceTraffic account, I want to donate $20 to get some GB (ratio)
    I don't want to use my real Visa card for this, so I bought a Mastercard Giftcard

    ... How do I use that card in order for me to buy ratio?

    If you get verified with the gift card, I do not understand why it is not get processed.
    Are you verified member of PayPal? The merchant may deny to accept payment from
    unverified member. Other thing to consider is your balance. Low balance could lead to such issues. Currency could also be a case. Some merchants may choose to accept local currencies only.

    The best thing to do it to call the gift card providers and ask them why the payment was declined. They will give you the most accurate information.

    That would transfer money to my 'REAL' account
    I don't want to use my real account to pay.

    If you bought a $25 MC gift card, then you're likely having problems because PayPa1 does not recognize these as valid credit cards. Also, if you go to a merchant that uses PayPa1 as their payment processor, then you will not be able to make a purchase with one of these cards, even if there's enough money on it.
