Onsego GED® Prep lets you use pre-paid cards for the majority of purchases, but certain restrictions apply.

Read the explanation below or choose one of the following solutions:

  • Choose PayPal instead of a credit card. PayPal payments are free for you, we cover all costs.
  • Check this article about alternative payment methods.


The following restrictions apply to pre-paid Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards:

  • Onsego 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 the 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.
