    I want to know if I can so I can start earning money online. Possibly make donations to NGU and such.

    Can anyone guide me in what and how I could do this?
    Send me a PM with the message: "What What In The Butt".
    I will compile a list of names and put you all in my signature permanently.
    I rarely log on so it may be a month before I do it.

    I am pretty sure you can as long as you have some cash on the card. I tried activating my Paypal account with a prepaid card but I had no money on the card therefor it did not let me activate it. I now use a credit card which is fine because it never gets charged unless I use more money than I have in my Paypal balance. I recommend using a credit card, but Im pretty sure you will be able to use a prepaid Visa card. Hope I helped

    Yea, well I heard that it does work but wasn't sure. I guess I can take the 5 dollar risk, as that is the activation charge.

    I don't have the ability to get an actual credit card since I am only 17 and am under the guidance of my parents. When I turn 18, I may consider it if I have a job.

    Is it the visa card from jewel you buy with the gift cards area,I tried doing that last year and I could not verify my paypal.
    What I recommend is go to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] signup for a free credit card it will send it in 1 week and you can verify you paypal with that.

    I don't want anything to really be sent to me...

    Good question. I am trying to do the other way, i.e. use paypal to fund the purchase of a prepaid visa card. Anyone knows if that's possible?
