Once purchased the cards can be used like normal debit or credit cards, but to be used online, they must be registered on a Website.
The cards can be used to fund a new Pay Pal account, which allows us to avoid the final limitation, if the foreign merchant accepts Pay Pal.
You can also sign up for subscriptions with a Pay Pal account funded by an anonymous debit card to address the second limitation.
Prepaid debit cards are sold as gift cards at many stores and offered by Visa, Mastercard and American Express.
These cards are purchasable with cash, which enables them to be used for anonymous, cash-like digital payments.
The un-branded cards also require an activation fee at the time of purchase.
