PayPal Support Added to PS3 PlayStation Store

/ 7 years ago


PayPal payments were introduced to Sony Entertainment Network in January, but users previously would have been required to use a PC to transfer funds from PayPal to their Sony Entertainment Network accounts. Today, Sony introduced PayPal as a form of payment when adding funds to wallets on the PS3 PS Store, meaning users can top-up their accounts straight from their consoles.

“Adding funds to your Sony Entertainment Network wallet through PayPal is easy on PS3,” explains Sony. “When checking out from the cart on PlayStation Store, click ‘Add Funds’, then click ‘PayPal’ and transfer any amount from $5 to $150 (the maximum wallet balance amount). If you’re new to PayPal, you’ll have to set up a PayPal account first to use this option.”

There’s still a $5 – $150 cap on the amount you can add to your wallet, so users can’t exactly go on a shopping spree, but at least they now have even more flexibility to drain that checking account. Sony Entertainment Network wallet can be used to purchase games, add-ons, movies, TV episodes, and more from PlayStation Store.

You can find the official statement on Sony’s official blog. Sony is also ready to launch the new PlayStation 4 console on November 15 in US and November 29 in Europe and Latin America.
