I prefer a prepaid Visa card attached to my Paypal, There is no way I would tie my Paypal account to my bank account. It may be a slight inconvenience to have to go to a Post office to put some money on the card when I need it, But how much of an inconvenience is it if your bank account is cleaned out.
Australian Residents, Australia Post offers a Load and Go Visa card, I have been using one for almost 2 years without issue.
