Question

I was wondering if prepaid visa or mastercards work on second life. I got one a few months ago and used it and it worked but the second time it didn't. I just want to make sure that they work before I buy one. Thanks~

 

Just now I read someone saying this on a Q&A

 

"I put in all my credit card information, double, triple, quadruple check it... and for some mysetrious reasons I only get the "Attention! Please make sure that all your information is entered correctly before submitting your payment." message at the bottom end with no button whatsoever to actually send my new information. Help?"

 

I had that exact same problem the second time I did it. I tried again and again and I know for sure I put in the EXACT and CORRECT information I needed to put in. It just kept doing that over and over again. Will this happen to me again?

I commented on your post in that thread, but here it is again (from http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Billing/ta-p/700037#Section_.10.8): "A common cause of payment method failure is the use of unsupported card types. At this time, the majority of prepaid cards are not compatible with our system, even if they bear the VISA/AMEX/Mastercard logo. This includes cards purchased at retail stores, rechargeable credit cards, and bank-issued check cards."

I, personally, think it's the nature of pre-paid CC (actually I believe  the proper term should be "debit card").  I was once issued a "pre-paid" card for gasoline to put in a company vehicle that I drove for a company I worked worked when I was out of town and needed gasoline.  The card worked flawlessly the first time I used it..........the second time it was rejected.  The card had $100 USD loaded on it for gas and I had only used about $30 USD on the first purchase with about a half tank of gas left at the fill-up (or, I should say, the second fill-up.........that was back when gas was about $2 a gallon and with a 20 gallon tank there is no way the gallons delivered would exceed the amount left on the card).  That happened three times before I told my boss to forget the pre-paid cards and I'd just submit reciepts that I paid for and let him re-imburse me.  Pre-paids are finicky.......and I hate them

That also goes for those rebate cards..........if you don't use all the funds loaded on the first shot, they are useless.
