do prepaid credit cards work for porn sites?

I’m wondering if i can just buy a prepaid credit card and use it online. Also, if you sign up for a site that is free but you need a credit card will it show up on the bill?

Probably won’t work – that’s because most prepaid/gift credit cards don’t work online, because when the system tries to verify your name & address with the card, the info isn’t found.

Anyway – who pays for porn online? There is so much free stuff, paying seems silly!

It won’t show up on a bill unless there is a fee. Some sites will have it automatically sign you up for a certain level of membership, or they will give you a trial of 3 or 7 days, but you have to cancel in order to avoid your card being charged after the trial runs out. Most people forget to cancel and then start getting the monthly charges, which will show up on the bill, but, porn sites will typically have the name show as something benign, much like in the old days they would send Playboy via mail in a brown inconspicuous wrapper to spare the recipient embarrassment.

I highly doubt that the chat sites that charge per min fees will allow you to sign up with a prepaid card, unless it is a site that allows you to buy blocks of time.

Why not ask the company selling the prepaid card if it works online? (You don’t need to tell them what you want to pay for) I don’t know what country you are in, but most of the ones I’ve seen in the UK work as Visa cards so can be used anywhere that accepts Visa, and that includes pretty much all adult sites. The US may well be different in that respect.
