PSN (in Malawi?)

[ Edited ]

I have done everything to verify my account. Called Sony, my bank, every variation possible for my Billing address after speaking to my bank and STILL funds cannot be added. What do I do? This is ridiculous. If the store doesn't want my money they should just send me an e-mail. I live in Malawi, does that make it not work? I am so confused.

Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

You live in Malawi, where is your PSN Account registered to?

 

And yes, that is probably the reason.

They want your money, but they don't want fraud.  Unfortunately, there is so much credit card fraud out there that SONY has chosen to be very, very strict with their credit card verification process.

 

The almost sure-fire way to fund your account is with a pre-paid PSN card.

Are PlayStation Cards available in your country?

 

As far as I'm aware, when you enter the billing information, the address has to match excactly what is on your statement.

 

Good luck!

And is that the same as your billing address?
