Notes:

  • Verify with your bank whether your credit or debit card is compatible with Address Verification System (AVS). Cards that do not support AVS will not work on the PSN.
  • All credit/debit cards for use with the North American PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, must have a billing address within North America.
  • If you are located outside of the North American region, you may still be able to create a Sony Entertainment Network account using a US or US territory address and purchase content from the North American PlayStation Store, however, you must have a North American credit card or debit card (with a Visa or MasterCard logo).
  • If you have issues entering billing information onto your Sony Entertainment Network account, please see our guidelines for entering billing information.
