Can I use my credit resulted from a promo code to activate my account?

I received a promo code which gave me 100$ credit, but I did not finish activating my account. I have yet to add a credit card, but the problem is I don’t own one, so it seems that the only option is to make a one time payment using Paypal.

Do I really need to make this payment, taking into consideration that I already have 100$ on my account?

As per the normal rule, you need to add a card or send some money (USD 5) from Paypal to get the account activated. Once this is done your account will be verified and you will receive the free credit.

Let me know if you have any questions.
