I've seen it at pretty much all SDMs. As far as I know, it works like a regular credit card, so it should work on YesAsia.com

Best of luck! I've used these before, so I guess if you want, feel free to ask me questions ^^

i`ve placed an order at YesAsia using the card. have you used it on YesAsia before? if you have, how long does it take for them to verify the credit card?

Prepaid credit cards work just like regular credit cards. The only difference is that they don't build your credit, and realistically, they're more like instant debit cards.

There's one thing to watch for when using these. I'm not sure but they may only work in Canadian online stores, as things might get messy with international transactions...

I haven't, I never ordered anything from them actually. But it should verify instantly... although Vanilla's system seems to not be working well sometimes.

yeah. i`ve heard that vanillas have a higher chance of being rejected. yesasia`s been verifying my vanilla card for almost 3 days now and they said it will be verified within 24 hours. my first time ordering from them and i`m already having negative thoughts about ordering from them again. =/

So there's mixed reviews on this. Nethertheless, it works. That's the only thing that matters right?

I have see a prepaid VISA... maybe you can try it instead, but not too sure what you'll end up doing with the Vanilla.

I went to shopper's today but I didn't see any. Maybe it depends on location?

Which location? I've seen 'em at many SDMs. I saw a VISA one at Metro (Warden/Finch) - used to be Dominion.
