    Hey

    So I have money on my paypal and I want to buy something somewhere that doesnt accept paypal money.

    I don't have a credit card and the only way I can pay is with a visa / mastercard / american express ....

    Does anyonw know somewhere where I can get a virtual prepaid card ?

    Thanks

    EDIT: I solved it by buying with paypal money a VCC (virtual credit card) online.
    Then I bought what i wanted and payed with that VCC as if it was a physical card .

    Do you have a bank account? Virtual Credit Cards don't exist.

    You can move the money from your paypal account into your bank account free of charge, just log in to your paypal account and under the withdraw option select transfer to bank account. It'll take a few days to clear though.

    There are plenty of providers of prepaid credit cards, with varying fee/charge levels. You can see a comparison here: http://www.moneysupermarket.com/prepaidcards/
