    Greendot is probably the only reliable one. It's the only one that is "meant" for Paypal. There's a $5 fee and you can pick it up at stores like CVS.

    The only bad thing about Greendot is that I think you now need to verify your SSN. This was never the case before. That's why I don't use anymore...

    You must be 18+ for it, as well

    To my knowledge, the way it works is that after purchasing the card (greendot in particular) in paypal there is a specific link where it allows you to 'load' your paypal account. Through that, the paypal can transfer all the money loaded onto the card on purchase and be put directly onto the card. It's a way to stop chargebacks per say, although if it requires SSN now it's a bit hard to say and sketchy.
