May 12, 2015Written by Jason Dunning


Shortly before the PlayStation Network maintenance went live yesterday, Sony announced that the downtime was going to bring “deeper PayPal integration and more payment options onto the PlayStation Store.”

While they didn’t highlight what the new payment options are, their updated ‘Acceptable forms of payment in PlayStation Store’ FAQ lists all the currently supported forms of payments:

  • MasterCard
  • Visa
  • Discover
  • American Express
  • Debit and check cards with the official MasterCard or Visa logos printed on them
  • PayPal
  • PlayStation Network Card (PSN Card) – The PlayStation Network Card (PSN Card) is a prepaid card that may be used to apply funds to a PlayStation Wallet without using a credit card. Please visit your local authorized PlayStation retailer to purchase the PSN Card. Prepaid cards are only available for use on accounts from within the same country of purchase.

In the additional info section, Sony confirms the wallet limit is still $150.00, you can register up to 3 credit cards and a single PayPal account on your wallet, credit/debit cards for use with the North American PlayStation Store must have a billing address within North America, and they discuss opening up a North American PSN accounts from other regions:

If you are located outside of the North American region, you may still be able to create a Sony Entertainment Network account using a US or US territory address and purchase content from the North American PlayStation Store, however, you must have a North American credit card or debit card (with a Visa or MasterCard logo).

Would you like to see the wallet limit increased?
