Donations with prepaid GIFT VISA


Sat Jun 18, 2011 1:44:08 am

Hello Everyone!

I hope this morsel of information will be useful for anyone like myself who prefers to use "Disposable Gift" cards when making online purchases; in my case a Donation through Paypal.

I never used Paypal before and I tried to use my debit card I purchased a few hours ago. Much to my discomfort, I found that Paypal would not accept the card. After digging around online I found a solution.

First, you need to have a paypal account setup and then you have to link the gift card to your account, this is done when you make your first purchase. A small refundable fee is charged to your card along with a code you need to input for the verification. When you go online to check the balance you will see the code that you must use to verify your card on the PAYPAL site. They state it can take 2 or 3 days to get the verification code, in my case it only took about a minute to get it.

Zorin OS 5 is definitely worth the extra effort I had to make to send in this donation! Thank you guys for such a wonderful user experience! I cannot wait to get my hands dirty with the Ultimate Edition!
