Just put it in like a regular card like you would any card and it should work. Or transfer funds from that card and put it in your steam wallet

Money in your Steam Wallet can be used to purchase games through Steam.

Info on Steam Wallet here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...1122-RTSC-0478

Just a warning, if you're a Canadian resident. there will be a currency fee (I'm Canadian and have used these cards) and steam will also take a verification fee as well
So if you have 50 dollars, you won't be able to spend the entire 50 dollars.

Also make sure to go to the Villa Mastercard site and register your postal code (assuming you are a Canadian resident) so that you can use the card online.

Both Shiro and wexer are correct. Make sure to register your card properly and you won't be able to spend the entire $50. Just treat the card as a if it were a real mastercard, don't try putting the funds into the steam wallet because you will be left over with an odd amount. If you try to put $50 in the steam wallet, it will be rejected if the limit of the card is exactly $50.

Pretty much do what everyone says. Grab a Vanilla Visa card > Go to their site and register your Zip Code > Buy stuff.

This guy is talking about a Mastercard NOT Visa.

Visa cards are needed a $5-$7 activation fee upon buying them in store. Idk about Mastercards. Good luck mate

Same here, but like you I go with Visa. It has a 4.95 activation fee at the register, and I'm able to throw $50 in my Wallet.

Grab a Visa if you get a chance.
