    Signup with Natwest instead, and get a solo card, which does work with Paypal

    A quick search on google gives me two similar results saying something along the lines of "Most internet web services won't accept Visa Electron, you should use Visa Virtual for shopping online and Visa Electron for local shopping and cashpoints."

    Can you get Visa Virtual?

    Yes, I am sure a customer of mine used a solo card with paypal. Could be wrong though. Can anybody verify? I might be confusing it with nochex.com

    Visa electron is only for face-to-face merchant transactions. Had to learn it through a failed online transaction back 2 year ago

    Visa Electron is the card you normally get when you are under 18 in the UK, if you are over 18 then you can apply for a Visa/Delta which is a Full VISA Debit Card and can be charged as such as long as cleared funds exist.

    I would suggest you get a real credit card (E.g.: Barclaycard) and not a debit card as a Visa Electron/Delta is.

    If however you are under 18 the Visa Electron is what has been deliberately brought into place to stop young people from doing silly things with their plastic.

    There was a thread a few days back on the same topic. Try to search. I do not think it works on paypal.
