Yes, you can add a visa gift card to a paypal account.

First, you need to register your Visa or other prepaid gift card. There should be a website that you can go to for this (it should say in the information that came with it/on the card). If you’re not sure which website, is a website that you can try for a prepaid Visa gift card.
After you did this, log in to paypal.

On the top there are the options “my account,” “send money,” “request money,” etc. Hold your mouse over “profile” and the option to “Add or Edit Credit Card” will show up. Click on that.
Then, click on “Add a Card” and enter in all of the info and your card will be added.

Sometimes you will need to confirm your credit card by entering in a four digit code. This will be in the transactions part of the website that you previously registered your gift card on. After you have logged in and copied the 4 digit code, you will have to confirm in on paypal.
These steps are
“1. Log in to your account.
2. Click Profile at the top of the page.
3. Click Credit/Debit Cards under Financial Information.
4. Select the card and click Link and Confirm My Card.”
5. Enter your PayPal code and click Submit.”
