Visa Gift Cards

5 replies 188 views Edited Mar 28, 2013

You know you guys really need to accept Visa Gift Cards.  I got one as a gift and wanted to give you the money..But no.  With the loss of trust from a little over a year ago, giving you my real CC number...not going to happen.

You have to call VISA to activate the card for online use. This is also needed to use Vanilla cards on Paypal and "other" online gaming services.

It's because you need to attach a name and address on the card, otherwise the purchase won't go through.

Thank you Doppel, that was the solution. FYI - Their own (PS) FAQs state they don't take them...lol.  The bank's website also allowed me to add an address, the phone was too much of a headache trying to find the right menu choice to get a person to do that.  I didn't buy the gift card for this use....it was given to me and this is what I wanted to use it for.
