    OT: Paying with multiple gift cards

    I have 4 gift cards each with between $6 and $18. A total of about $46. There are a couple of watch bands I'd like to get. Will paypal allow me to put in all the cards and then use the total amount or am I limited to the amount on each card?

    "Affordable" just means you end up spending the same amount of money, but end up with a greater number of watches. -MandoBear

    Gift cards or prepaid cards? If gift cards, gift cards to where?

    If it's for prepaid cards, you can always buy amazon gift cards by email (4 different transactions for the exact amount remaining), apply the credit, and buy a watch on amazon with those credits.

    A quick google brings up this from PayPal:
    For PayPal members, you can simply add prepaid gift cards to your wallet then start using them during checkout - just like any other credit or debit cards. For users without PayPal account, you can just enter the card information during checkout in the same way youwould do with credit or debit cards.

    Best to ask PayPal if you are unsure. They will surely know better than anyone here.

    Yes, I saw that but I don't think I can load up 4 cards and then use 3 of them for one purchase.

    I'm assuming those gift cards are from Paypal.

    I think you will find that several of those cards can be used at one time. That is very common in the brick and mortar retail business and there is no reason for Paypal to do something different. I have done it many times at Home Depot with return credits and gift cards.

    Ask PP what the score is. I don't know about your side of the Pond but I have found PP UK to be very helpful.
