Default Vanilla visa gift card questions to make card work

I bought a Vanilla Visa Gift Card $25 from Walgreen. How the heck do I add my stealth information to it?! I can't find anywhere to add it.. -.-

When I go to "edit my account" it only ask me for the zip code.

I did add the zip code, it doesn't require my name or anything? How do I use it on my stealth account if it wont let me add my stealth info to my card?

I would think you would add the card first before even asking these questions, not much you can find out until you add it.

Okay, paypal keeps saying "we were unable to verify this card"

Tell me what I am doing wrong. I went to Walgreen and bought a $25 Vanilla Visa Gift Card from there about 2 hours ago. I went to vanillavisa.com>logged on using my vanilla visa card number>went to edit your card> and put in my zip code. Went to my Paypal account, entered my card information. Got rejected.

Not all vanilla cards work, try the $20-$500 ones and as long as the zipcode matches it should go through, if not then it means that particular card doesn't work with paypal.

I would recommend a VCC on here. But to add to your current problem, you do realize you have to register your card online, and you enter all your info on there, and it can take one hour for the card to be activated after you enter all info online thru the cards website.

Best way to do it is after you buy the card, login to the vanilla website, register your Zip/postal code, then give it a minute (actually at least 15 minutes) for the card to register your information, then it should work, pay pal only need to match your zip or postal code

Paypal doesn't match your address? Just the zip code?

Yeah that could work one time only, you can't re-use the number after that.

ya, you have to build up your limit, just like a credit card. The more they trust you after buying and selling, the more the limit goes up.

No, you have to confirm the card to remove the limit, if you can't confirm the card then you have to remove it and add another one.
