Issues with prepaid and gift cards

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.

Problem med kontantkort och presentkort

 

En vanlig orsak till betalningsmetod misslyckas är användningen av stöds korttyper. Vid denna tid, de flesta kontantkort är inte kompatibla med vårt system, även om de är försedda med VISA / AMEX / Mastercard logotyp. Detta inkluderar kort som köpts i butiker, laddningsbara kreditkort och bank utfärdade kort check.

The email "support@payments.secondlife.com" is no longer available. All that remains are the billing phone numbers or opening a support case. Beeing in Sweden, there is no toll free number for you. You may want to use Skype to save cost and call the long distance billing support number: 

703.286.6277

Your e-card is probably rejected for not being listed as an accepted payment method by Linden Lab. You may want to check with Paypal in Sweden if you could link this card to a Paypal account. If it is possible, then you would be able to use Paypal for your Second Life account.

I see that Swedbank offer a product called Debit Card Plus.   While I'm not familiar with the particular product, one of the selling points is that it can be used abroad and to pay for flights, so I suspect it should be acceptable to LL.

There are two kinds of debit card.   One won't allow you to become overdrawn (or possibly exceed your credit limit), so the merchant has to check with the card issuer before the transaction is authorised.    That's not usually possible with international online transactions.  

The other kind guarantee payment up to a certain amount, whether or not there's funds available.   It's this second kind you will normally need for internet transations, at least with a merchant based in another country.

ETA  The page to which I linked  keeps defaulting to Estonian for no reason I can understand.   There's an "English" button at the top, though.
