I don't have a bank account due to several (personal) reasons, and I can't open one, but in some way (with help of my mobile service provider) I can have as many Virtual Credit Cards as I want. Those credit cards last 24 hours and can be used once. Any unused money isn't lost, and gets saved for me to reuse. However, every VCC costs money. I want to buy something from a website that uses PayPal as the only payment method. When I link the VCC to my PayPal account it gets marked as used and it gets disabled. How can I send money from my VCC to my PayPal account?

EDIT: I heard about PayPal Cash card, can I buy it online?


If PayPal won't accept the VCC number, then by definition you can't do this.

If you want to know whether there's a way to get special permission or bypass that restriction... I'm afraid the right thing to do is ask PayPal. Yes, I know their customer support is awful, but this is a classic customer support question, and they know the internals of their system better than any of us possibly could.

  • Isn't there any other E-Money service that accepts adding funds without linking the credit card, and at the same time it's money can be transferred to PayPal? Jul 24 '16 at 14:50

    That's a different question... I have no clue; I haven't investigated. Find them and ask. Or buy from businesses that can securely accept credit card numbers directly; the VCC should work for those.
