Shop at Godaddy without a verified PayPal account

Buying domains from GoDaddy is almost impossible for folks who wishes to pay using an unverified PayPal account. I asked GoDaddy support about this issue and they promptly replied :

Dear Soumik,

Thank you for contacting customer support.

I apologize for the inconvenience, but we are unable to accept Paypal payments from accounts that are not backed by a debit or credit card.

Please let us know if we can help you in any other way.

Well, I said it’s almost impossible to buy without a credit card, not completely impossible. Here comes in the GoDaddy Gift Cards. All you need to do is find somebody who has a verified PayPal account and a GoDaddy account. Tell them to send you a gift card by filling in your name and email address and the amount at this page : Gift Cards. You can always pay your friend later using your unverified PayPal account.

Within 15 minutes, you’ll get an email like this :

Dear Soumik Ghosh,

Now, whenever you need to pay for something just select “Gift Card” as the payment option; enter the Gift Card code and the Captcha and you’re done!

Note : The only disadvantage of paying with a gift card is that you cannot apply coupon codes to your purchase.
