Solution:
1.) Go to a bank / credit union
2.) Give them money and open a checking / savings account
3.) Get a debit card
4.) A winner is you!

Do you have enough on it to fully pay for what you're trying to buy? A lot of online merchants will reject the payment unless there's enough on there to pay in full, it's not like, a Best Buy gift card where you can use whatever's left on there and then pay the leftover balance.

Maybe he is under 18? I think you need to be 18 to open an account on your own.

You shouldn't put your debit card number online. Credit card fraud steals money from the bank and that can be easily worked out and fixed with the bank's fraud department.

Someone steals your debit card info, they're taking YOUR money directly from YOUR checking account, and the process to get that back can be more difficult.

Never underestimate the stupidity of people, and never hesitate to take advantage of it.

It’s to prevent fraud, those cards are the most easily stolen and activated.

PSN cards are tied to PSN.
Prepaid Visa cards can be use where visa is accepted (generally) so I can buy my weekly shopping rather than a game, if you need to

Maybe kids were stealing their parents cash and putting it on cards, and they put a stop to it.

Had the same problem a few days ago picked up a $250 vanilla visa card and it was no go it wouldn't even let me add the card. So what I did was went to this site and ordered psn card codes https://www.pcgamesupply.com/ and then used those on psn.
