    you cant add money from a pre-paid card or credit card

    its needs to be linked with your bank account

    or get someone to send you money on paypal

    Just a heads up, but paypal didn't work when I tried to use a prepaid card on it, since it couldn't verify it (since it had no address attached to it)

    Just have a friend buy it for you. And if you don't have any friends, get a cool relative to buy it.

    Simple, don't tell your dad what it does.

    My dad was the same way (I have my own PayPal now), I just never told him what they did.

    The old saying still stands: What daddy don't know don't hurt him.

    How does that work out? You have them deliver it somewhere else?

    either
    1) just tell him its to play videos on your ds
    2) if you have a bank account, paypal can just use that instead of any cards.

    If you tell them it's a special game you can't buy in regular stores, they will most likely believe you. That's the way I did it, and NeSchn and probably many others too.

    I did this once. I used a money order on one site, and asked someone to get a money order check thingy for me and I sent it to the site in the mail. I got my flash cart a week after, nobody knew. [​IMG]

    Do you have any friends, siblings, or friends siblings that have PayPal?

    Thats how I also used to buy stuff.
