Error when paying with a Visa gift card

I’m receiving an error when attempting to pay with a Visa (Vanilla) Gift Card. I know the card has the required funds and is a valid card yet I still get an error. The error message displayed is: (We are unable to authenticate your payment method. Please choose a different payment method and try again.) I have searched and have been unable to find anything to help with this issue.

Vanilla Visa Gift Cards can be used everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted in the United States and District of Columbia .

It might be that Visa debit cards are not accepted? I’m not sure, we’d need the Replit team to confirm this.

They are not. I remember this came up before let me find it


That took less time than expected. They are supported but they can only make so many requests a day

I use a debit card to pay for the Hacker Plan on my personal account and it works.

Can you confirm that your card is activated? Have you purchased any other items successfully with it?
