Walmart Visa gift cards are a very popular gift option for different occasions. A question we often get is whether you can use your Walmart Visa Gift card to make purchases online? The answer is Yes, but you first need to register the card with Walmart.

The problem with using the Walmart Visa gift card to shop online, is that there is no name or billing address associated with the card, so when you use it online, the merchant has no way to verify card ownership.
