Can I use a Visa gift card to pay for my purchase?
  Before you can use a Visa gift card to pay for your purchase on this website, you will need to register your card. You can do this by either calling the issuer, or by visiting their website. You need to do this because issuer needs to have on record the gift card number as well as the name of the cardholder using the card. This allows merchants to process purchases in accordance with the merchant's security policy governing the acceptance of bank cards. Merchants won't complete a transaction if the data provided by the purchaser does not match with the information that the bank has on file about the cardholder. Unless you register your card in advance, there will be no way a merchant can confirm your identity. Without such confirmation, your purchase will be declined even if there are sufficient funds on the card.
