Yes, you can use a Visa gift card on eBay to purchase items from within the USA.
A Visa gift card can be added and used on eBay just like a normal debit card. However, as it is a gift card, it will have a fixed amount loaded on it. So, make to purchase an item that is less than the amount loaded on the card.
To use a Visa gift card on eBay, follow the steps below:
- Open eBay app and log in to your account
- Tap on ‘My eBay’ option from the home screen
- Now, choose the ‘Payment options’
- Here, tap on ‘Add Payment options’
- Tap on ‘Credit and debit card’
- Now, enter Visa gift card details
Once you have added the visa gift card to your eBay account, you can use it to buy items.
What if the purchase is larger than the amount issued on the debit gift card on eBay?
If the purchase price of the items is larger than the amount loaded on your gift card, the card will get rejected, and the order will not get confirmed.
Also, many people have a question:
If the purchase is larger than the amount on the gift card, can they use the other payment method to pay the remaining amount?
The answer to the question is: No, you cannot choose another payment to pay the remaining amount if the total is larger than what’s on the card.

If you cannot directly buy the eBay gift card with the Visa gift card, what you can do is add the card as a prepaid card to your PayPal account and then use PayPal to buy the eBay gift card.
