    So I've been looking online for a way to pay with this pre-paid gift card that I got for Christmas.I tried putting it in Paypal but it got rejected. It has no expiration date and it's worth 25 dollars. Does anyone know a solution of how to get Paypal to accept it or a Flashcart selling site that will accept these pre-paid gift cards?

    You generally have to register the card for online payment first, as to have an address associated with it. I generally see: http://www.mygiftcardsite.com

    Pre-paids are a bitch. This year ask for PayPal gift cards as present.

    It said it's not a valid card number . I'm using American Express if that matters.

    I checked things out, and your card is a bit special. It doesn't seem that the gift card itself can be registered anywhere, and it can only be used where American Express is accepted, online and off. I don't know how many flash cart retailers accept American Express, but I guess you can check around.
