Tutorial: How to use Paypal on PSN

Post by Jd8531 » Mon Oct 29, 2012 4:38 pm

As requested by popular demand, here is a tutorial on how to use PayPal on PSN, directly through PSN. PayPal is safer and easier which is why its popular so here is a guide :D
Note: Some regions and countries may be different but this should work anywhere, unless otherwise stated.
How to use PayPal on PSN


OPTION 1 (All REGIONS )
[spoiler]You can use the recently launched Playstation Store for web browsers, and check out with PayPal directly or add funds to your wallet.
Information on it here: http://wololo.net/2012/12/11/sony-opens ... -webstore/
Sony PSN webstore:https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/#!/[/spoiler]

OPTION 2 (Most Countries)
[spoiler]*Note:Using PSvita in this example, also some regions and countries may be different but this should work anywhere. You'll need a PayPal card which you can get for free from PayPal for option 1. A PayPal card is just a card that you can use to make purchases anywhere with what money you have in your account. You can get one in your Paypal account settings or here: https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/debit-card
Step 1:
Start up the Playstation Store and click the bottom right button
Image

Step 2
Hit billing Information
Image

Step 3
Now enter your paypal card information but with it set to "Master Card" and make sure the rest of your information is up to date (Yes PayPal can work as a MasterCard!)
Image

Step 4
Back out and hit "Add Funds to Wallet" when you are ready to buy something
Image

Step 5
Add how much you want by taping the button
Image

Step 6
Confirm your information, and then tap "Add funds"
Image

Thats it, you are all done! 8-)[/spoiler]

OPTION 3 (UK/EU)
[spoiler]Step 1: If you live in UK or EU, sign in to SEN (Sony Entertainment Network) via your pc. I will use the UK for example.

Step 2: Then go to account settings, then go to wallet.

Step 3: Then go to add funds and then it will ask you to select a payment option, select the paypal option.

Step 4: Then select the amount you want from the drop down list i.e (£5, £10) etc,and then it will take you to paypal to sign in and make the transaction.

Step 5: The funds appear instantly in your wallet and you do not need to register your debit/credit card on your SEN account.[/spoiler]

OPTION 4 (VARIES FOR REGION, USE THESE SITES OTHER THAN BESTBUY AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION)
[spoiler]These are some user recommended sites to purchase a direct PSN wallet code with PayPal that you can then redeem on your console:

Jd8531, are you sure it's paypal?

For all i know, it's Sony who administers the purchases and the money, directly, without using paypal...!

Anyway, for those who AREN'T from US or EU, this method also works!

But you have to have an international creditcard (you have to talk to your bank, or your creditcard issuer for this ;) )

Yep, if you look at a paypal card or look it up. There is a Mastercard symbol on the card. A paypal can be used as either paypal or credit (but you cant spend more then you have obviously)
I use Paypal all the time on PSN. Sony charges, PayPal handles the charge.

Sorry I should probably add that, but no you'll need to get the PayPal card which is free to get.
