Exclamation Etsy Stealth Vanilla cards declined

I have been using vanilla gift cards to make my etsy billing payments for a year now, but all of the sudden I am getting a card declined message from etsy! I thought maybe there was an issue with the card I had, so I bought a new one and tried to use it to pay my bill, and again I got the "card declined" message. The cards have a zip code attached to them that matches the zip code that I use on etsy. Is anyone else having this issue?

Thats not good, is there any other way to pay the bill? I have to pay them 3 dollars tonight or they ban my account... I dont use direct checkout, only paypal for taking orders. can I pay the bill with paypal? or will that get me banned..

Well I ran out of options so I had to use paypal to make the payment. I have a business paypal, and I only use it on one etsy account. So from what I have read I should be safe as long as I dont use it for any other etsy account. I did try my vanilla visa gift card one last time, and it was still declined, so it would seem that they no longer allow this type of payment. fingers crossed that I dont loose my account now :( will update in a few days if I get banned.

Just pay out of your money on "hold" If you go to your payment account, just pay from that. You avoid having to use a card at all except to set the account up for the first time.

There is no money on hold for PayPal only accounts.

You did the right thing paying via PayPal. Just change your primary email when paying for another shop.
