This issue has been going on for as long i know. It happens with my phone and laptop. I use cards to make transactions that i know for a fact have money on them online. I use different payment methods that would work in person. I have switched browsers, switched devices, and used without wifi. Whenever i attempt to make a transaction online it just says were unable to complete the purchase or time limit ran out.

It may be that the service you are using does not accept pre-paid cards. I have seen that in the past. You may want to check one or two companies to confirm if they will accept the pre-paid cards. Also check with the card issuer if there is such a restriction.

A prepaid card is like a debit card and some places do not accept them.

I went to my bank years ago and applied for a permanent low limit credit card. I wanted to use it strictly on the internet and it is not tied to my bank accounts.
The credit cards we carry for in person transactions have much higher credit lines.

You might want to consider getting a credit card with a low spending limit just for internet use.
