    I'm planning on buying something from dealextreme and I want to know if I can use a visa gift card on paypal.... If so are there extra steps to do it?

    Thanks.

    Thats a very good question but I doubt it then
    again I do not know. I have a PayPal account but
    I don't use a gift card I use a real credit card.

    Give it a shot, you might be able to, when I worked for Sprint we were able to take Visa Giftcards as payments.

    I think you can I bought something from dealwoot.com which is now gamebygame.com with a visa gift card but I'm not sure since it wasn't paypal.

    Yeah just do it like that buy the visa gift card
    register it online (read instructions) and then go
    directly to the website and buy whatever you want
    then use credit card/debit card method and everything
    should run smoothly from there.
