You can use a DEBIT CARD ( if that is what you mean by "pre paid one" ), as long as the bank doesn't block your internet payment and the card is an accepted one ( Mastercard / Visa)

 

Details about payments are here

You question can have a double meaning. If you mean that you started the configuration of adwords as a "Postpay" , which means payment after you receive clicks, and you want to revert to a "Prepay" method, that is not possible, acording to the rules found in the article above.

It is actually possible to change from automatic (postpay) to manual (prepay) payment systems - the link provided by Adrian above includes a link in itself to instructions on how to do this.

 

Switching between Manual and Automatic Payments

Jon is 100% corect, thanks for pulling this discussion in the right direction.

 

After some more reading i understood that only certain accounts open before 2009 cannot change the form of payment.

 

I will make the right recommendation from now on.
