Most prepaid Visa Gift Cards cannot be used for recurring bill payments, donations, or subscriptions due to the fact that these cards are not typically reloadable, do not have a routing number and account number associated with them and/or a line of credit the payment gateway cannot authorize automatic debit requests. You may have been able to make an initial donation to Locast.org using this type of card, but we will not be able to debit your donation automatically on it's due date which will lead to a declined transaction and the system will not allow you to update the Billing Information in your Personal Profile using another Prepaid Visa Gift Card.
However, since all Locast.org users have complete control over their donation subscriptions via Settings on Locast.org and can manage their donations, payment method or even cancel at their convenience. There is no reason not to use a prepaid debit, debit or credit card so that we can debit your recurring donation on each due date. If you do not wish to use a card, we also offer donation subscriptions via PayPal.
