Covcel GED® Prep lets you use pre-paid cards for the majority of purchases, but certain restrictions apply.
The following restrictions apply to pre-paid Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards:
- Covcel doesn’t support entering the three-digit CVV code normally found on the back of some cards. If the code is required by the issuing bank, payments may not process successfully.
- Some banks may require registration of pre-paid gift cards by name and billing address.
- There’s a $1 authorization at the time of order to make sure the payment method is valid. This authorization is not a charge, but banks may hold the authorized funds as unavailable until the authorization expires.
