I would like to add credit to my account without lending. Like how Kiva does it.
Thanks for writing in--and for the great suggestion!
Currently, the only way you can add credit to any Vittana account is by purchasing a Vittana Gift Card--a feature we just launched last Friday. There are several quantities available for selection, and upon purchasing and entering the code on the gift card, PayPal applies the selected quantity to your Vittana account as credit (viewable under your profile).
While I realize that this is a round-about solution to get at what you've requests, we run a list of user suggestions and "thoughts for the future" available to our web and user experience team. I'll definitely include this for future reference. I wish I could tell you that we could take a credit card directly at this time, but our system only allows for credit creation through the gift card method.
Thanks for your patience with us, and for sharing your thoughts.
All the best to you,
One quick clarification--any gift card generated money is not for withdrawal, and must be applied toward a loan.
Purchasing credit toward another's account in the form of a gift card is the best possible application of this, and until we do set up a better method of applying credit, using the gift card route is definitely not ideal.
Thanks again, and let me know if you have further questions,
