Sony adds PayPal as payment option for PlayStation Store

Sony has added PayPal as a payment option on the PlayStation Store, or at least it will when the store goes live tomorrow.

This option was discovered by a twitter user when trying to add funds to his wallet via the Sony Entertainment Network website, we've also tried it and took a screengrab.

Currently the only way to pay on the PlayStation Store is by using a credit card, so obviously by adding in another option, PSN products may appeal to more people.

Are you happy with the addition of PayPal as a payment option?

Thanks, Manuel.

even though I use paypal for various other sites, I'm sticking to buying my retail PSN points. I like having spare game cases

Brilliant addition. I just wish you could buy items for their actual price and not have to top up say £10 if something is £5.99.

It is a minimum payment of £5, but anything above can be paid in that installment. I don't know why it has to be above £5 and not the price the item costs mind. Love this really mind. When I lose my card atleast I'll have other options.

PayPal will be very happy with that! Massive revenue increase for them £££! Guaranteed increase in fraud on PSN. I bet there isn't much at the moment with card or PSN points only. By being able to transfer money in from PayPal and blitz it on digital content, that will be attractive to some. Unless Sony make it that you have to link a PayPal account (1 per PSN user) that way fraud won't be as easy. Interesting decision by Sony. I don't see that it was needed and it will cost them a large % because PayPal are greedy buggers.

I think this isnt a bad idea. I can now sell on Ebay and buy on the PSN :)
