I tried to add funds to my PSN account with my debit card. but seems like it did not work.

it showed "Currently unable to add funds to your account. Please try again later."

and also i found there's $1 pending transaction on my bank account.

 

WTH is going on?

how can i fix this problem?

and I'm pretty sure the billing info on my PSN account is EXACTLY as same as the one on me bank statment.

Its a problem that hits people randomly. It's been happening to people for as long as i can remember. The pending transaction that has gone from your account is just a test transaction to make sure your card was ledgitimate and will be debited back to your account within 7 days. The best way forward is just to buy PSN cards. You can get them from most gaming shops and major supermarkets. They can also be bought online from sites like Amazon and shopto.net. If you buy them online you'll be emailed the redeem code as soon as payment has been received and sometimes you can actually get them cheaper than the value of the PSN card.

The transaction pending is the way that PSN validates your account. It attempts to withdraw, then deposit £1 or $1 then refund it.

 

 If you are unable to do it yourself on the PS3, try waiting 24 hours as you may have inadvertantly triggered the lockout. (several attempts that fail will lock it for 24 hours). If after waiting it still doesn't work, give customer support a call and see if they can help. The EU numbers are available here.

If after 24 hours you still can't add funds then phone your bank. They may have flagged it up as a fraudulent attempt and blocked it. I've had that happen to me a couple of times now.

Hello,

 

I have the same problem. It just recently occured though. I used my old debit card with no problem at all and purchased a bunch of games in the Playstation Store, however I lost my DC a week ago and got a new one. Obviously I changed my billing information and that's when the problem started.

 

1) I see a small pending transaction to Playstation Network which proves that my data that I put in was correct.

2) Called the bank which confirmed that I have enough funds for the purchase and also confirmed that my card is active.

3) Tried to buy a game in Google's Playstore for my phone, which also refers to that same DC number and had no problems.

4) Contacted PSN/SEN customer support and got no response.

 

I would buy PSN cards if I could but since I am currently living in Thailand i need to say that it is really hard to find one. I am not even sure if there are PSN cards for the Thai region, since if I do see some they are for the US region. Thus I am really dependent on my DC purchases.

 

Any way of solving this?

The billing address for your card must match the residential address on your PSN account for the transaction to complete.

 

Are they both registered to the same address?

"Multiple transactions in a short space of time will trigger the psn fraud prevention system.
You will have to wait 48 hours before attempting any transactions on the account."

Everything seems okay with me, address, cards details and names.

But PSN still insisting not accept any new funds to my wallet with the same message above in the subject.

I have bought a redeem card from amazon US and the system didn't accept that card due to regions issue, Since i am under Europe region.

Luckily i have a brother in US i can pass it to him.

 

But, The problem still the same, Sony please advcie the issue.
