Call the customer service number on the back of the card. There’s no reason it shouldn’t work for a straight up eBay purchase as long as you have sufficient funds on the card and you have activated the card.
To the poster below me, what you say about being able to use Visa or MasterCard branded gift cards to make purchases online is true in most cases, it is usually not true for recurring charge purchases (such as Blockbuster, NetFlix, trial pay sign ups, etc.).

now did you register the card online with card issuer that’s usually the problem because
ebay/paypal cant verify the address on the card unless you register the card in your name

Using Visa or American Express Gift Cards to Shop Online
One of the most asked gift card questions, particularly on Yahoo Answers is whether you can use a Visa or any other bank issued gift card (American Express, Discover, or MasterCard) to shop online. The answer is yes.
However, there are additional steps you have to take to prevent your card from being rejected by the merchant. The problem with using Visa (or any other bank issued) gift card online is that there is no verifiable name and address associated with the card. When buying things online, most merchants want your name and billing address to match the name and address you have on file with your card (credit, debit, or bank gift card) issuer.
Therefore, before you use your Visa or other bank issued gift card, call the merchant/financial institution that issued the card or go to their website and add your name and address to the card. This will ensure that when you use the card online, the name and address you provide to the merchant for billing will match the name and address on file for the card. Once you have registered your card, you can use it online just like you would use a regular credit card.
If your information (name and address) has changed since you registered your Visa gift card, call the card issuer or go online and update your information before you use the card online.

Answer by Dan S
If it is a Visa or MasterCard gift card you should have no problems at all. Amazon accepts these cards.
“You can use debit, check, and gift cards issued by the companies above in addition to their standard credit cards. For example, if you’re paying with a Visa Check Card please select Visa from the drop-down menu on the order form when indicating the card type. Similarly, if you’re paying with a EuroCard or MasterMoney Card, select MasterCard.”
