[GUIDE] Buy Minecraft with Visa Gift Card!

  • #1
    ****************THIS WILL WORK FOR SOME PEOPLE!*************************





    Alright, after 5 hours of searching and wasting my time trying to buy a minecraft account with my VISA gift card, I'm willing to help out people that are having problems. I AM NOT CERTAIN THIS WILL WORK FOR OTHER CARDS, IT MIGHT.
    You won't need PayPal for this, so don't worry.


    1.Alright, Make sure you have sufficient amount to pay for minecraft, and have it REGISTERED. [I bought a $50 Walmart Visa Gift Card]
    2.I went to Moneybookers.com and just sign up. That's it, sign up.
    3.Next, go to Minecraft.net and go to PURCHASE. Click on Moneybookers.com method.
    4.Fill out the form till you get to [CHOOSE PAYMENT METHOD] Just choose [VISA] and enter the CVC code (The 3 digit number on the back on the gift card.)
    5.Next, for me it said transaction successful.

    Notes: I literally wasted 5-6 hours researching trying to find out how to pay for my minecraft. I hope you guys don't have to suffer the same thing as me.

    If this has helped, at least post "Thanks!" in the thread so I know that it has helped you, If it hasn't then I will try my BEST to help out as much as I can.

    *NOTE* You MUST message me first before I can help you! I can't help if you just add me. :)


    Many thanks,

    Apparently, MoneyBookers doesn't accept prepaid American Express when creating a MoneyBookers profile at the current time [12-9-2011] but does if through a merchant!

    Hm, It has never done this to me. What happened when you waited 24 hours?

    The transaction failed for me, but I suspect it may be when the site disabled my card for 24 hours after trying for a while. I'll tell you my results on my next attempt. I thank you very much for this guide though! I've gone throug hall this nonsense with MoneyPak and PayPal and all sorts of junk.

    I'm in Northern California, but I always get this message:

    You can not use your credit/debit card for the next 24 hours.
    This restriction cannot be lifted manually by you or our service team. You may try again tomorrow or choose an alternative payment method.


    I've waited a whole 24 hours but I still get this. Anyone wanna help? I have $30 on my Visa Gift Card. :sad.gif:
