As title says.

Bought the card today with 100 bucks on it, when i try to use it I am told to try another card.

No use trying support, by the time a reply comes the sale will have ended.

 

.I tried both the gift shop payment and linking the card to my WG account. Looks like WG won't be taking my money.

 

I have used them successfully in the past, but the card format has changed

 

Has anyone successfully used a visa gift card?

Sorry can't help with your specific problem. In my past experience the Visa gift cards have been hit and miss for me. They just don't work like a real Visa card everywhere unfortunately.

Got some a few years back from friends/family for Christmas or birthday and at certain stores and certain online retailers they simply refused to work. They tried to do what they could but it wasn't an issue with their store it was the actual EFTPOS machine and bank causing the problem.

I was forced to spend them where I didn't really want to or waste the cash I was given.

Yeah, it's odd.

The older style ones, the ones where you nominate a $$ amount and put it on, was no prob.

But this one, no go...even though it specifies 'use online'.......

Most likely a bank security problem.

Give the bank that issue them a call so they unblock the transaction.

You may need personal ID to ident the order

The card always have a bank that issued them. You need to contact the bank behind them should such problem arise although ask for a refund is also a solution.

Is there any issues with reloadable cards that anyone knows of?I have been thinking of getting one of those.

Just used one to buy atlanta. No problem whatsoever.

But i used a virtual mastercard though.

Tried several times today, failed to complete transactions with VISA. Keep getting the "Transaction Declined" message. Then tried in Steam and no issue what-so-ever. Basically WoWS gateway is having some issues. I'll probably try a different card tomorrow.
