adding funds to psn
« on: January 02, 2013, 03:28:12 PM »
I've been trying all day to use my pre-paid visa I got as a gift on the psn but no luck. I've tried all obvious routes, making sure there is money on the card, matching info with billing, etc etc. It keeps saying ' cannot add funds' or card is invalid. Even some error 56 b.s. I have been all over google and havent found a solution. Anyone have this happen or know of a solution??
If not, please don't troll me about just getting a pre-paid psn card as I've been hearing that all day:/ thx:)

Honestly, that may be what's easier.  Both Amazon and GameStop offer tax-free online downloads of PSN codes, though if your card isn't of those values ($20 or $50), that could present an issue.  I do know that some pre-paid credit cards require a specific zip code be used as the billing zip code (this would be in the credit card's information packet, if any).

I've never used a pre paid credit card on psn, but I assume information on it that you would use to register the card as useable on psn is probably lacking. Honestly, the psn card is a better option anyways, just because of the security hack bullshistorm a couple years back. You can get a digital code for the psn card via gamestop instead of a plastic card, and right off the website (does take a few hours though...).

Hope it helps.
