I've googled to see if others have had success with paying aliexpress using a prezzy card and found a couple of posts saying they did using Prezzy Cardholder as the name on the card.


I've tried using my registered prezzy card with aliexpress last night and it doesn't work.  


Contacted there chat support who advised me visa's should work fine so gave them the order number but they then advised prepaid visas wouldn't work.


Just wanted to check if any HAS actually used a prezzy card or tried to with Aliexpress as there seems to be conflicting info.


If not is there anyway around it as aliexpress appear not to have gift cards of any sort.

When there was a problem with my normal visa card once, I tried using a different one I had never used on there before and it seemed to trigger some anti fraud thing on it that I had to get the issuer to allow it.


It was a gem visa I was using and they seem to be super absrud at blocking transactions tho, really annoying that they do that but I guess they feel that annoying their customers is better than having to charge back fraudulant transactions.

I use a Loaded for Travel prepaid Visa card on Aliexpress, I don't even bother to try to match the cardholder name. I put an order through last night which apparently was 'shipped' this morning.
