Dear Playstation Community,
I've found myself possibly making my first purchase on the Playstation Store and have an inquiry regarding payment.
Aquisition of a game called "White Knights Chronicles II Remastered" from Ebay which didn't include a "GeoNet License". This might be solved by the Seller soon...but if not, then I'll still find this information useful.
This might be down to being partially paranoid due to the security breaches on the PSN network over the last couple of years, but, I was wondering if it's at all possible, to keep my PSN account clean of any residual payment details after purchase (not sure if PSN Network saves my payment details)
I use a Debit Card, which operates more or less the same as a Credit Card...except, less support should it become compromised.
I've considered PSN Game Cards as an alternative.
Thank you for your time.

Also bear in mind that your credit card data may be no more securely held by the online PSN card retailers than by Sony. In fact, following the breach at Sony, Sony's security might well be chunkier.
If you bite the bullet and use a card transaction directly on your Sony device, you should be able to delete the card details from the local machine through your account settings.

You can only delete it from the PS3.
Credit and debit cards have always come with risks.
All debit card transactions, NO MATTER were they take place are recorded and stored in computers.
(Legal law in UK is 4 years of records for every company).
Also ATMs, hole in the walls, or what ever you like to call them, are also targets for credit/ debit card fraud, With Altered machines stealing your data.... You won't know its happened untill to late as the data will not be used for months after it been stolen.
Shopto, amazon, play.com all top site have all had there User data base breached at one point. The card data is stored with encyption so takes ages to decode.
Also chip & pin machines have been altered to record your pin and communication with bank details.
This is just some of the things Mr crook has done to counter the lack of cash being used and have been in the press enough.
