Using Prepaid Gift Cards
Using Prepaid Gift Cards in our Shopping Cart:
If you received a Visa/MasterCard or American Express ‘Gift Card’ – although it ‘looks’ like a credit/debit card, it is NOT. These cards will NOT be accepted through our shopping cart and our PayPal Merchant account until they have been ‘activated’ and registered through the Visa, MasterCard, or American Express websites. Once activated and registered, they will work through our PayPal Merchant account/shopping cart.
Follow these tips to use your PrePaid Gift Card to make an online purchase:
Online or phone purchases
To make an online or phone purchase, you will need to “REGISTER and ACTIVATE YOUR CARD” before you can use it in our shopping cart.
To register, either call the issuer, or visit their website. This information should have been supplied to you by the issuer when you received the card. It may also be printed on the back of the card.
Using Prepaid Gift Cards through our PayPal Merchant Checkout:
When you enter the information in our cart or call in a phone purchase, the name, address, and phone number you use will need to be ‘exactly’ the same as the information you provided when registering your card in order to avoid declines
You can verify or update your information by visiting the card issuer's Web site, or by contacting them using the toll-free number provided in your card materials.
Know your Gift Card balance
It is important that you know the remaining balance on your gift card before you make a purchase to avoid declines. WE CANNOT provide that information.
IMPORTANT: If your purchase amount is more than the balance on your card, your transaction will be declined.
