    Here is how you do it. Take your money to Walmart or any dept store. with your money buy one of those credit cards - visa. So you can put down 25.00 and you get a card. Then you bring the card and enter that number when PayPal asks you for a credit card! And that is all! Simple.

    I think @just_one_last_goodbye meant like money earned from parents....kids are too young to have credit cards so they put the money in a piggy bank or something right? I think what kevin is trying to say is what IF we want to use that money for OS (knowing that parents wont allow children to have any sort of credit card) <---if this makes any sense at all

    what the heck? It's called a pre-paid debit card which means put money inside the card. Credit cards mean charge it and pay it later.

    @Preetha they would need there social security number and other info that they might not have available to them atm. Or there parents wont give it to them for safety reasons.

    @Joel_the_boss is right. I currently have a "we encounter an issue with your paypal account page" since November 2014 because I didn't want to give out my SSN number. Paypal requires everyone to provide additional info including SSN numbers to transfer money from a bank account to a paypal account. It's irritating. I can send money from my paypal account to my bank, but not the other way around. To bypass this, you either have to use a credit card or a pre-paid MoneyPak debit card.

    On top of that, everyone has to have a verified paypal account. either link a credit card to a paypal account (which no one under 18 has) or link a bank account to a paypal account. (takes a few business days, but worth it)

    Earlier, I saw "get $25 and put it on one of those credit card - visa" that's actually a pre-paid debit card and that used to put in money. Debit cards are re-loadable, but credit cards aren't. A credit card is used to make purchases, but it's more like borrowing money and then when the statement comes, you need to pay a minimum balance + interest. And PayPal is kind of picky on which cards to use. I've only read about MoneyPak cards working well with Paypal, but maybe other brands might work. Not sure.

    I just found out that MoneyPak cards are no longer being sold. :/ Scratch that idea. However, any debit card can be linked to a PayPal account and that's one way to obtain "verified" status. PayPal does charge a small amount on the card, but once the codes are entered, then a refund is issued. To speed up the verification process, you may need to sign up for online banking to retrieve your statements. Otherwise, you'll have to wait for a paper version in the mail. The minimum age requirement for PayPal is 18, but if users under 18 obtain permission from their parents, they can use PayPal. I wonder if it's possible to open an account on PayPal and just link a pre-paid debit card to obtain "verified" status on their account without the 18+ only rule or giving any other sensitive info like SSN? The SSN is only needed to transfer money from a bank to the PayPal account. A verified PayPal account can do a lot except doing one task. ^

    If PayPal was my pal he'll pay for everything. lol jk. Jokes aside, @just_one_last_goodbye what type of card did you try to buy? Gift cards can be paid with cash or credit card (I've done that). For a pre-paid debit card, keep in mind that there is an activation fee on top of the amount you're going to put inside the card. To avoid to this activation fee, buy the pre-paid debit card online. However, some pre-paid debit cards can be laced with fees. Here's a bunch of them: Activation or initiation fees Monthly fees Per transaction fees ATM fees Balance inquiry fees Fees to add money to the card Fees for paper statements Fees for customer service calls Bill payment fees Fees for not using your card Fees when closing the account Overdraft fees
