Re: Payment info

You can but you need to have enough funds on the card to cover the purchase price and the authorization that happens. You also need to register your card with the prepaid card issuer with your full address otherwise your purchase will potentially fail.

Re: Payment info

If this is an in store purchase just use your pin number as a debit card.

 

For gift cards, tell the cashier to run your card as CREDIT

Re: Payment info

Welcome, MrLordTaco,

 

Thank you for stopping by our community forums. A Visa gift card is a great thing to have around, I know I've purchased them as gifts quite a bit. As hockeycanuckjc mentioned, we do offer the ability to use these cards, I'd be happy to provide a few more details.

 

We can accept these cards both in-store and online. Please keep in mind that we can only process one form of payment for online orders so this card will need to have a large enough balance to cover this purchase. hockeycanuckjc also makes a great point about activating this card. If you are making a purchase online the correct billing address would need to be provided so we can process your order.

 

I hope we were able to answer your questions! Please let me know if I can help with anything else!
