PayPal will now accept prepaid gift cards through PayPal Checkout.
Research firm First Data estimated that more than $43 billion worth of gift cards were purchased during the 2012 holiday season–they can be difficult to use on e-commerce sites because most don't have a billing address attached to them. In fact, 60% of people who received gift cards told First Data they preferred to use them at brick-and-mortar locations.
So this holiday season put the gift card to good use on PayPal..... I know I will.
