What name do you put on a prepaid credit card when you are using it online?

It was given to me as a gift and I’m not sure what name to put on it

    Before a prepaid card can be used online, it has to be "activated" with the social security of a person who is 18 or older and has a credit report. When you use it online, you put the name of that person.

    If it doesn't have a name printed on it, as in a gift card, you use your own.

    Look at the back, it also says you should sign the card. Its your card now...use your own name.

    You are using it online anyway, so you'd be giving your name for the transaction...

    The info needs to be what is on the card. You should not be using somebody else's card, it can lead to trouble.

      Many debit cards do not have pre-embossed names on them.
