Alternatives To Paypal’s Virtual Credit Card Service?

July 31st, 2010 07:02 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

An anonymous reader writes “Paypal has quietly killed the Paypal plugin and the related virtual-card service. The service generated on-the-fly, one-time-use credit card numbers. When I called in and inquired about the service, I was told that the service has been discontinued, but may be relaunching something similar depending on interest. They are treating inquiries as a sort of petition, taking down names and contact info. The forums seem to be a lost cause, as no Paypal reps have replied to the numerous posts regarding virtual cards being discontinued. Does anyone know of a good alternative source of one-time-use credit card numbers?”

    Bank of america has this service.
    You have to have online banking and a BoA credit card to use it.

    paypal should have quietly killed themselves like they killed my business by putting me on a 70% rolling reserve for no reason. Had it not been form me finding merchantinc.com I would have been out of work and a place to live. I was set up with them the same day I applied.
