: Can someone please tell me where I went wrong?

I bought a Wal-Mart gift card thinking I could use it with Paypal to make online purchases.

I registered it at just like one is supposed to and entered my address. I try adding it to my Paypal and a small amount is deducted to be refunded later once I'm able to verify the card. I wait the 3 days before the transaction finally shows up on the transaction history on the walmart site. I verify it, thinking all is good but when I try to buy something it tells me it won't accept my card.

What did I do wrong? Or does the Wal-Mart gift card (which is technically a Visa) even work with Paypal?

: Ask PayPal but I don't think a walmart card works with PayPal - I think it's specific to the store - just like if you bought a Target or Kmart card - it can only be used at that store.
Just transfer funds from your bank account to PayPal rather than buy a credit card to put $ in PayPal.

: You cannot use a gift credit card with PayPal.

According to PayPal:

"PayPal does not recommend adding a gift card, prepaid card, virtual card, or one time use credit cards to your PayPal account. Although some of these cards may be accepted, most will not function correctly with our system due to the security checks we have in place. PayPal is not an online store, where these types of cards were intended to be used, and in order to properly facilitate our service, the traditional credit card or debit card is preferred."

If you want to use PayPal without a conventional credit card it is possible to do so with a secured, prepaid card such as a RushCard or BabyPhat.

If you want to use eBay maybe use your gift card to buy an eBay gift card at WalMart or Publix.

: walmart gift cards can only be used at walmart or sams. A Visa gift card can be used anywhere you can use a visa--or the walmart green dot visa can be used anywhere. So it really depends on which one you purchased.
