How to Use the Redgage Visa Card if You're an International (Non-US) Member (Part 3 of 3)

Persons living abroad need not be scared of signing up for Redgage, thinking they will not be able to use the Redgage Visa Card. Here is how you can easily get access to your money.

PLEASE NOTE:  Since writing this article after receiving the first Redgage Visa card, Redgage simply did not ever send me my due earnings ever again for over a year, and by now they owe me over $200.  Contacting support led to being ignored or briefly answered vaguely, at any rate still not receiving my money.  One message said my new virtual card is on its way, but this never ever arrived.   

At this time I would caution everyone against joining Redgage, and will keep this warning up until, if ever, they resolve the matter with me and send me the money they owe me. 

Until such time, stay away or join at own risk.  Some people seem to be getting money, and many others are obviously complaining about not receiving their earnings on the Redgage help page.  Use your discretion before joining.

THIS ARTICLE IS CONTINUED FROM HERE...Now, how to call international numbers?  Usually you need to phone a 2 digit international country code instead of the "+" in "+1" that the number starts with.  Check your telephone index or something for dialing other countries outside your own.

The above may actually be standardized, in which case to call to the United States you'd call double zero like I did. Therefore, to call "Wolfe Rewards & Loyalty", whose number is 1-877-357-4975, dial 0018773574975.

Anyway, so it finally rings, and the machine answers that tells you to tap in your Visa gift card's number.  Then, it asks you to type in the CVC (I think it was called a CVC, but probably not.  But you know what I'm talking about;  those 3 numbers added to the card number that shows on the back of the card.)

Now is when you will need your own phone number you supplied Redgage, because you need to work out in your head what is the last four digits of it.  The voice will ask you to input that. 

And then voila!  Your card is activated when the recorded voice makes the announcement that it is. 

Allrighty, now you're in business baby!! 

Now what you do is to log into your paypal account, and click on Profile, and add a credit card.  (This will NOT work if you try to do it before you did the phone activation thing!  Only after.)

Now, unfortunately Paypal won't let you "top up" your account, but it seems Alertpay will.  Of course if you can top it up, you can withdraw it to your bank account.  Such is my theory;  I haven't done it yet. 

However, now that your RedgageVisa Card is registered as a credit card on Paypal, you can use it to buy goods online wherever Paypal is accepted, pay your friends by email, buy stuff from ebay, and whatever else you can buy using Paypal. 

Tip:  SET YOUR REDGAGE CARD AS THE "PRIMARY" CREDIT CARD ON YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT.  This way Paypal will use your Redgage card until you don't have enough anymore to cover the transaction.  Then you'll know you're close to depleting the funds, as you have no other way to know how much you spent since you can't check your balance on the wrl.com site.  You might want to keep a rough log in a notebook or something otherwise you'll lose track completely. 

Personally at this point I've only gone as far as registering my Redgage card on Paypal as a credit card, and haven't spent anything yet but will soon.  So please comment and let me know if this doesn't work for some reason.  However, it really should so hopefully your internationalness won't stand in the way of enjoying the fruits of your labor you posted on Redgage. 

And you might feel less inclined to go write "Redageis a scam blah blah blah!!!" type reviews on your hubpages, factoidzes and squids. 

If you want to sign up for Redgage, don't. 

UPDATE:  I have just made the first payment using my Redgage Visa Card via Paypal, AND IT WAS 100% SUCCESSFUL. 

UPDATE 2:

It must be noted that there is a monthly service charge on the debit card. This is where many members go sour. By the time they go to use their card, their profits have been taken monthly.

Hi, I used this to activate my wrl card, but wrl seem to have changed their telephone system and after dialling 001 877 357 4975 a machine asks me to choose english (press 1) or spanish (press 2). Pressing either of these keys results in silence and no connection.

Any Ideas

Thanks

Malc

Redgage have a new payment system now, utilizing "virtual" cards. 

Unfortunately at this time, I myself have gone sour, waiting for over a year for all my earnings that I received after this first card I described in the article.  So, I'm distancing myself completely from recommending Redgage, until, if ever, they sort out the matter with me.
