  1. Does it work to order stuff off GC with a visa gift card or some other credit card company\'s gift card?

    I believe it should work if it is international capable, because the companies say it works just like a credit card.
     
  2. If they take take Visa/American Express/MC then yes the gift card version would work.
     
  3. Let me double-check on this for you. Gift cards are different than credit/debit cards.
     
  4. yea they are but they are treated like credit cards, and the companies say that it works just like a credit card, but it\'s prepaid.
     
  5. I have used them to order Salvia and things of the like, it is treated just like a credit card, there should not be any problem.
     
  6. !!!!!!! I recently had a big problem with this... I bought an american express gift card and it is not useable outside of the united states. The visa and mastercard cards also said the same thing! Their customer service was unhelpful, and would not refund my money. Buyer Beware!
     
  7. I\'ve had problems with them, as have others, which is why I\'m in the process of double-checking on this. :)
     
  8. Im still awaiting verification from the Shop but I found a few things pertaining to the cards that make a difference with online purchases.

    This is pertaining to a VISA gift card:

    Can I use my Visa Gift card for online or phone purchases?

    * Yes. You will need to be sure that your name, address, and phone number on file with the provider that issued the card is exactly the same as the information you give to the merchant you wish to make a purchase from. If the information is different, the purchase could be declined.

    Can I use my Visa Gift card outside of the United States?

    If your gift card states \"Valid only in the United States\" on the front, your bank has issued a Domestic Use Only card. This means that your gift card will not be accepted at locations outside of the United States, but is still welcome at millions of locations within the United States where Visa debit cards are accepted.

    This is related to American Express gift cards:


    Where can I not use my Gift Card?
    The Gift Card is for use within the United States and cannot be used at Car Rentals, Casinos, ATMs or for recurring billing purchases (cellular phone service, subscriptions, etc.). Usage restrictions also apply for international airlines. See Terms and Conditions for further details on Gift Card usage.

    Again, I\'m checking with the Shop for details regarding purchases from Grassicty.
