can we add money to the psn account using paypal

13 Replies 29,213 Views Created 08-11-2008

I'm fairly new to all of this, and don't have a credit card, so was wondering if I can pay for downloadable content using paypal, or buy points from a shop like you can with xbox360?

 

does anyone have any idea?

 

 

cheers

Instant bank transfer i think

I dont think you can use PayPal sorry
It would be worth getting a Devit card if your old enough though :smileyhappy:

he meant buying microsoft points or whatever theyre called to buy stuff on the xbox's equivalent of ps store not actual online

 

i think what you mean is a psn store card which arent available in the uk yet though its only a matter of time

Re: can we add money to the psn account using paypal

i dont know if you can use a solo card, although i dont know for sure. i use my maestro debit card and it works fine.

if you are really desperate to download stuff from the store, you could go out and buy a temporary debit card from shops. or paypal offer a virtual mastercard, but i dont know if that is available in the uk yet.

sorry i cant help anymore

I have used debit card, credit card and PSN vouchers in the past, but mainly PSN cards now as they always let you buy content at busy times.

You can use paypal, but not directly with the PSN store.

Use a Paypal topupcard: https://www.paypal-marketing.co.uk/topupcard/index.htm

Then just transfer the money from paypal to your card for free.
