Thank you for your help! The idea of getting an US Bank Account For NON-US Resident is very good, but I do not have a passport yet (I will get it later). Can I buy a Virtual/Prepaid/Gift Credit Card (Visa/MasterCard) paying with my positive PayPal balance ?

Are you looking for the Store Gift Cards? If yes you would be able to do that If your store support PayPal transaction. I would be more easier if you would be able tell us what are you looking at exactly..

benedictherold - Thank you for being available to help me. I am going to clarify what I want - I have PayPal funds I earned selling things on eBay. I am from Portugal and I tried to withdraw such funds to my bank account but that was not possible because I am outside USA. So I have money "strapped" on PayPal. I would like to use it to buy things on the internet, but not all sites accept PayPal payment (only credit card payment). For example - Amazon.com, eBooks.com, Audible.com (these are 3 of my favorite online stores). Thus I am wandering if I can buy a Virtual/Prepaid/Gift Credit Card (Visa/MasterCard) paying with my positive PayPal balance; in order to use it on any site that allows credit card payments (all shopping accept Visa and MasterCard but not all accept PayPal). Is now clear enough ?
Thanks.
Best Regards.

That makes sense now. You need to make use of you paypal funds in your favorite online stores with a workaround way :) But the reality is if you need to get a Gift Card or something like that then you need to have a valid US SSN number. Even if you're able to get a Perpaid Card, PayPal will not allow you to transfer your money. So your options are ruled out now..

i would suggest you to withdraw the money as Cheque or shop in stores that supports PayPay :)
