Ok I don't work so dont have any type of card with me or a bank account. I need to purchase a book from a store which is slightly expensive. I need to buy it online though that is the only draw back because it is not available in any store. My question is how do I purchase a card to just pay for only that book alone. and then when that amount is paid maybe fill in the card and pay for another book online so on... any idea? is option even available. (My local library doesn't carry that book and I need to purchase it from another country)
You may need to ask someone else to order it for you (and just give them the cash). Most online retailers won't accept prepaid cards.
It would be a good idea for you to open a bank account whether you work or not. You obviously have some source of income since you have money that you're thinking about buying a prepaid card with. Better to have that money in the bank.
