I want to buy credits but having problems with paypal account which won't be "rectified" according to them until 3-7 days.   I have a $22.00 balance on a visa debit gift card that I want to use up and didn't know if I could use it to buy credits.

I looked in help but didn't see this mentioned.  I know if I try, it asks for name on card.  Should I put my name, as card says "gift for you".

Thanks.

When it asks for the name on the card, it's referring to a credit/debit card that has actually been issued in a specific person's name.  I am not sure if a debit gift card would work the same way, since there is no name on it.  If you have "registered" the card, then you might be able to use it.

Thanks, sent a quick email to PBS guide who said I could use it.
