Can I purchase with a pre-paid Visa?

Recommended Posts

I wish to use a generic prepaid Visa, the kind you buy at the store say for $100, instead of my Master Card.

 

Reason:  Committee is unlikely to approve the pending 744 v2 purchase.

 

;-)

haha - officially? Don't run afoul of the committee.

 

As far as I know prepaid cards work just like regular cards where they're accepted - just beware of any fees that they might charge on them for transactions, etc.

Have you considered a prepaid PayPal card? Will cost you $3.95 and you can choose the amount to load on to your PayPal account.

Hmm, curious, but that requires a debit does it not?

 

You see, this needs to be done stealth-like.

Not at all, go to a big box store or Rite Aid, etc. and pay cash for a PayPal card. It's got a 0-500$ load amount. Go to the PayPal cash site, enter the card code and it will load your PayPal account with the specified funds. That's how I buy stuff from Flightsimstore (Australia) where a prepaid Visa is only good for domestic purchases. And the funds are available IMMEDIATELY!

Surely she will notice when you suddenly disappear to fly it for several weeks?

Why does that involve the liberal use of an ASP...?  ;-)

Bottom line,

 

Yes you can, I have a pre-paid Visa for online shoping and it's linked to a paypal acount, so if the "card" is not working you can "override" it via paypal( checkout via paypal that takes it from the card)

 

I got both the B77L and the 77W this way.

 

just make sure that your card is open for online shoping.

Not all shops that accept Visa are accept pre-paid visa card.

Hey Chris,

 

I used a USD Vanilla Visa to buy the J41 last year. No problems.

 

The CAD cards generally work a little easier, as you tie an address and name to them.

 

The only reason I used the USD card was I was in the Middle East at the time, and that's all the base had.

 

Cheers

So then this is the card type I was referring to.  So I can use a Vanilla Master Card to buy PMDG products?  The kind you buy in stores.

That's right Chris. I picked up a USD one when I was deployed. That worked just fine for me. And I find the Canadian ones work even better.

Looking to get the PMDG 737ngx for p3d.

Can I use 2 separate visa debit cards to make the purchase?

I don't know that you can make two seperate payments on an internet purchase. Highly doubt this is possible.
