    This has happened to others. After adding money 3 times or totaling over $450, it will ask you for that information.

    I did a search in Google's support and found this answer:


    I think I would rather Google Wallet just charge directly to my credit card.

    I would prefer a "link to a payment processor" .. like PayPal links to my bank account.

    But that's just me ....

    Exactly this is the way it shouldve gone. So now is there also a way to get an actual live prepaid card?

    I would NEVER allow Paypal or Google Wallet have a direct link to my bank account. I made that mistake once with Paypal, and when an unauthorized withdrawal occurred from my Paypal account, Paypal snagged the money from my checking account, and after several appeals they told me it was my problem to resolve with the vendor.
