    When the Jailbreak is released sometime next week (Feb 2013). I want to avoid paypal. Is there a way to pay tweaks with pre paid card? Pre paid card in paypal? I'm not sure how to do it.

    I just want myself to be prepared to pay some tweaks on the cydia soon.

    Wouldn't you just be able to use a prepaid credit card via pay pal like any other credit card?

    What was said above, or use a prepaid card with Amazon Payments...

    It is possible to use Amazon gift cards? so Cydia have access into my amazon account and take any amount of remaining balance on Amazon gift card?

    From memory (sorry, it's been months since having a jailbreak), you can use Google OR Facebook to log in as your Cydia account. Then, you can use Paypal OR Amazon to complete the transaction.

    This is subject to change and new options could be added, but I'm almost certain those are the present options.

    There's nothing wrong with Paypal, it's very simple to set up and hook into Cydia. I have no experience with Amazon.

    At the iPhone hacks section.

    Amazon gift cards can only be used for amazon merchandize. Not cydia hacks.
    If you load up some money on a prepaid card you can use it with paypal or amazon payments.

    I forgot to ask two question, I saw cards at Walmart and this this card called "MoneyPak" it adds money into PayPal and eBay. will this card work toward buying tweaks?

    Also have another question, the PayPal requires prepaid visa with address. I don't think prepaid card works on paypal?

    many thanks!

    my suggestion go to paypal and see what they say. I've used paypal for years and used it for more transactions then I care to admit. I have had very few problems with them in fact they helped me solve many issues. I have it registered with my bank account. I supposed I could go read the polices for you but since youyr the one that wants to know, I think it's better that you do it.
