I dont think you can activate reloadable prepaid cards without an identity. Sometimes SSN and DLN.
Btw, they are not 'Credit' cards, just that they use visa network. And paypal etc sometimes dont differentiate.
A non reloadable prepaid card is like a one time gift card. That can be used without an identity.

Btw, if someone things I am wrong, please set me right. Cos I am interested in finding such cards too.

Regards

all usa debit cards require ssn's cause of the patriot act. U can use giftcards and u wont need a ssn. f a k e ssn's wont work cause they check the ssn when u reg the cards

thanks! guess my question is then.....if I register the card with real info, address registered with paypal and then since the paypal is registered under real name just with one letter replaced....will it work that way?? Or can Paypal view the SSN and the card will deny because of one wrong letter?????

But in this case there are any difference to use for Paypal gift card or VCCs?
AVS VCC seems easier and cheaper way. What is benefits from " gift card"

I have registered gift card with my real SSN and an altered version of my name which is what I used for eb/pp. If its close it will still take. I dont konw how far you can get from the real name but mine must have been okay.

Just try different ones. It will just say error or something. Then try something else. If you go too many times it may lock the card up though. I havent done this but wanted to warn you just in case its like other things that do this.

for me giftcards are by far easier to come by cause its a 5 min drive to get them but theres really no difference in eather of the two.

and i think avs only checks zip codes but im not 100% sure but im pretty sure so as long as ur address is in the same zip code u should be able to add the cc under any address in your city

Default solution

Im guessing that u wana use this card for withdrawling paypal funds,right? Well just give them ur SSN if you have one. Once youhave it activated, u can order another card for someone else. On some providers you have the option to have a seperate account for this person.
