you would still have to redeem that pre-paid gift card - via Paypal, anyway.
- which would still be against some folks principles, in dealing with PayPal.

even with those reloadable credit cards - - there can be an issue in attaching them to your PayPal account,
- as PayPal seems to prefer a Regular Credit Card ( or a Regular Bank Account ).

I know, but if the team didn't figure out a way to make the things easy for "donors", I don't feel obligated to harass not-involved person.

Credit cards via Paypal. Kind of false advertising. Guess they're off my christmas list.

Thanks for the offer, but that coat hanger is like a bad cheque, it keeps coming back! I've already sold it several times and had it returned each time because it won't fit in their cupboard. :D

Just now tried to send in another donation to Mint, and ran into this snag with Paypal. Last year, I had a miserable time-consuming problem getting out of PayPal after they refused my entry based on incorrect security questions. I KNOW my first dog's name was Pal.

You can't communicate with them if you are out of their security loop, and so I called (Geez I hate calling the hold function), send my ID and personal information at their request and they claim to have not received it although I had documented proof on my email. The end finally came after a few days of relentless battle, but with heart rate within survivable limits. I was set free, and I'll never feel such beautiful climax.

That's why I won't use Paypal.

Sorry machines.

Good day
