Default Vanilla Visa / MasterCard / Vanilla Gift Card All Questions Vanilla!

I attempted to open an account with a Vanilla Visa today and it did not work. I have opened many eBay accounts with out an issue including Paypal as recently as 2 weeks ago. Today eBay rejected the card.

Has any one opened an eBay account with Vanilla Visa in the last few days?

Default 2/5/2008--- PROBLEMS with VANILLA VISA??

Hi_
Anyone else having problems with Vanilla working?
--Used one last week, no prob (was a $25 card)-
--Bought a $100 + a $50 today... tried 3 times, will not work on ebay..nor paypal...
Anyone else??

Thanks!
UPDATE: a $25 Card DOES work on ebay to register new accts, so My guess is this is a Paypal thing...

Yes, it MUST be,, as when you go to pay your seller acct- it goes to the pay one time only, via credit card-plugged it in, says declined,
--checked balance, was ok, at $100.
then, 2nd time, tried via paypal, other method,, still same thing,, (the screen where your pp login is on the rt and you fill in the blanks on the left)--NO GO,
--i THOUGHT, OK, WILL TRY THE $50 CARD.. both ways--no go..
**Created seller acct- (was waiting for the decline, went right through)--so its definite Paypal has Banned Vanilla Visa, as a matter of fact- i think i remember someone casually mentioning this in a post sunday??

When I searched the threads, there were a few posts where this did appear to be working. It did not appear to be continually successful but mention was made
by a couple of users that they had success.
Or, that is how I read the posts.

When I just searched the posts for Vanilla Visa--seems it did work for folks,, so as of TODAY--no more for Paypal.. East Coast , anyhow.,.
BUT< the $25 cards do work for ebay open seller acct..
**NOTE: i did NOT try a $25 card to pay ebay fees, and i did NOT try a $50 or $100 to open an acct... (if the amts matter at all?)

Vanilla Mastercard works great here on both eBay and Paypal. Is the Vanilla MC available in the states? I always had better luck with MC on eBay and Paypal...

I had a $25 vanilla visa that worked for ebay and paypal before. However, I just found out that american express gift cards don't work. Somewhere on this site there is a list of sites that sell/provide gift cards. Can someone copy and link me to it?
THANKS

I wonder why they would do that. It only hurts their business if anything.

Yes Vanilla Visa gift cards stopped working for me for opening eBay accounts around 12/31/07. I tried 5 times with various dollar amounts at different IP addresses on different days with different accounts and they still didn't work. I gave a few used Vanilla Visa cards to a friend who informed me that they could not buy items online with them.

I used Vanilla cards to open paypal accounts in Nov 2007... have not tried to open a paypal account with a Vanilla Visa since then.

I started using amex gifts cards since to open eBay accounts and no problems since

rond100,

When they flagged those accounts where you used the Vanilla Visa cards, what message did Paypal give you?
