Default Can you deposit money to paypal using a giftcard like vanilla?

Title says it all, is it possible? not for removing limits but for depositing into a stealth account.

Only answer if you have done it before

Thanks

I have paid paypal accounts using giftcard to cash out - i don't like the % taken by paypal so I doing it rarely these days but for some large gift cards from which I needed cash, I was doing it last year quite a bit.

Your question is a bit unclear.
Are you asking if it is possible to add funds to the paypal account's balance from a prepaid VISA gift card?

I dont know if it was just me not being totally experienced at stealth or not, but i tried it one time. I had set up a stealth account, added a bank account, added a Vanilla VISA, now get this though, i DID NOT verify either with micro deposits. I went within a couple of days and tried to put $40 on PP, not for a purchase or anything, just wanted a balance on the account to pay initial USPS fees (i had not even posted anything for sale on eBay). It took all of about 3 seconds and WHAMMMM....PP Limited. They were asking for every but of info from me including the color of my first girlfriends pubic hair from 1976.
Needless to say, i just abandoned that set of accounts and started following the stealth guide.

Well to add funds using bank (which is different than paying with bank) you have to use ssn.

Just an FYI, any transfer of funds between bank and paypal will reveal the name on the bank.

As for alternative ways of adding funds into your Paypal account, I would be curious to know as well. I havn't ever had the need for it. In emergencies I usually transfer between accounts, but literally only emergencies - not recommended though.

It was awhile ago, it might have tried to add from the bank account, i know that i Was wanting to add from the CC i had bought at Walmart, just to clear out the card and give me funds for future shipping.

Another aspect of this is that i was following instruction off a "stealth guide" (not Aspkins i might add) that i had bought off the net, it was apparently a hijacked kind of ⊗⊗⊗⊗ version being hocked on the net as legitimate, it was a major scam. That is why i lurked here for about a month before buying on this forum, i was very skeptical about the whole stealth thing when i got here.

I don't think you can upload funds from a card....you can either make a PURCHASE of goods/services or pay fees or pay someone else via pp to pp (warning: don't repeatedly transfer between accts)
