    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.

    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.
