Safer way to buy lindens? in General Discussion Forum Posted September 26, 2016 As far as I've heard, most pre-paid cards will not work as a direct payment method in SL - you need an actual credit card or a verified paypal or skrill account. After you added the other card information to your paypal account, did you set one of them as the primary default source (instead of your bank account) for payments to second life? I have my bank account as well as a major credit credit card connected with my Paypal account, and have the primary payment method set to the credit card, so I don't have any unpleasant surprises with my bank account. Another thing I do is maintain a small balance in my Paypal USD balance - this is always used first by PayPal for payments, not matter what your primary payment method in Paypal is set to. It sounds to me like the issue is more about how you are managing and have things set up in your Paypal account.
