Can debit cards work on PSN?

12 replies 52019 views Edited Sep 19, 2013

I have a debit card and want to purchase stuff on the PS store. When you got to add your Debit/Credit it says in that area add Debit / Credit card. All of my information is correct and I have been able to use it elsewhere without any problems so I'm not sure what to do, please help...

In the above link (click on "Puchasing FAQ") you will find that debit cards that have a MasterCard or Visa logo on them should work. Otherwise, if it's a straight debit card from your local bank it will not work.

Even if the card has a MasterCard or Visa logo, it still might not work for a number of reasons, including...

 

The card issuer does not implement the Address Verification protocol

The card issuer reports your address as unverified, meaning that it has never sent you mail there successfully

The billing address does not exactly match the mailing address registered in PSN

 

Sony insists on knowing your real mailing address when you use a credit card on PSN; so that Sony can collect the correct sales tax, prevent fraud, and observe the local laws were you live. If Sony can't verify your address based on the transaction data, or the address doesn't match what is in your PSN profile, then it will not accept the card.

You can link your debit card to a paypal account. Once you do that you can just add in your paypal information when purchasing items off the store.

This does not explain why a debit card that has been used to spend money previously on the playstation network on ps3 suddenly did not work after upgrading to ps4. It is exactly the same card with same number, expiry and security code with no change of address and the ps network just refuses to accept it.

I got a new debit card with a chip. And when I tried to enter it, it was rejected. I gave the information correctly, but nothing.

I just posted what I did to get my chip reader card to work. You'd need 2 different cards for my trick, the first gets rejected, and the support forums does not provide the correct answer to the chip reading problem
