This is a quote from a PayPal employee when someone asked the same question at the PayPal site:

 

"To answer your question, you may not be able to add some gift cards, prepaid cards, virtual cards, or one-time use cards to your PayPal account because we unable to validate them. However, you can use Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express debit cards and credit cards with a U.S. billing address."
