Did you know you can use PayPal, Giropay, iDEAL and Sofort to buy games?
Did you know you can now use secure payment methods like PayPal to purchase your favourite games directly from your PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3. Be the first to access the best new games by visiting the PlayStation Store on your console and making instant purchases using your online ‘wallet’.
Wondering what an online ‘wallet’ is? Basically, every Sony Entertainment Network account has a ‘wallet’ attached which stores your funds to be redeemed against purchases and subscriptions. Up to £120.00 can be stored making it super speedy when you want to make that instant purchase. Whereas in the past, only cards could be used to top up your wallet, now we can offer you the added security and convenience of using your existing PayPal account.
Other payment methods that have recently become available (region dependant) include Giropay, iDEAL and Sofort. Along with PayPal, these payment methods are proving more popular than ever. Since PayPal has been introduced; thousands of our customers have used it to pay on PS Store.
On a PS3 or PS4 all you need to do is visit the PlayStation Store, choose what you want to buy and on the purchase confirmation screen select ‘add funds’ where you will be presented with the option to select PayPal.
