Possible to buy content with a Maestro Card?

[ Edited ]

Hey, is it possible to buy stuff at the Playstation Store with a Maestro Card? ( not 'master card' ) :smileyhappy:

 

since all I see is three options at the billing info: American Express, Master Card and Visa. If it does work, which one should I pick?

First you need a trip to the spec savers

 

Because right between American Express and Mastercard IS the word MAESTRO (sorry but its right there on the credit card info section of the billing details of your account management section after you pressed triangle on your user name.)

I use Game Capture HD II to capture and upload videos on to youtube
Subscriber Plex app for PS4 AND PS3 out now... free versions built in to console OS...

Black screen on PC remote play showing up as windows GPU driver miss match, visit Intell, AMD, Nvidia to change your driver, downgrade of GPU driver may be required.

It doesen't say that, I just checked. :smileyindifferent:
Might it be because I've chosen my country as Sweden? If it is, it's weird. Because Maestro Card exists in Sweden.

Ok, if I do so, will there arise problems such as if I download the cod map pack, it won't be able to use? Can stuff like that happen? Since I live in Sweden.

Sorry but the user ID location needs to match the issuing location or it should fail to clear the credit checks by the banks computer.

Same thing stops my Visa working on USA store.

You can use Maestro as i have this setup for my account (i live in the UK). What must match is your registered address on PSN and your card address. So if you have created a 'fake' UK account to access the content etc and you live in another country were you bank then your card will be registered to where you live and as a result you will not be able to use it as the addresses wont match.

 

So yes PSN supports Maestro transactions but only if you use them on the correct store, ie the store for the country you are a resident of.
