Should I write "pre-paid debit card" or "prepaid debit card"? I found a discussion about the same topic on wordreference.com

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Please include the research you’ve done, or consider if your question suits our English Language Learners site better. Questions that can be answered using commonly-available references are off-topic." – AmE speaker, Hank, Nigel J, NVZ, curiousdannii
After reading the merriam-webster article about hypens in prefixes, I am most confident the answer is "prepaid." You should avoid the hypen when possible.
Thanks to @Clare for the comment.
