As per requested, Im taking over Muchi job to update the list of credit card that usable/not usable in PSN. In other word, i already kick Muchi's butt real hard laugh.gif ..j/k ph34r.gif

So to retain the originality, i'll copy & paste Muchipost to here and will be using his referral method for future update.
For those are intrested with the original post, click here

QUOTE(Muchi @ Dec 8 2007, 10:52 PM)
Usability of AmBank NextG card varies from user to user. Some could use it for the US PSN, some could not. we still dont know the excat reason why this happen

US PSN

Accepted cards:
Gift/Debit/Prepaid card:
AmBank NextG - squiggles (v4, 121, 2405)
EON Bank MOL Freedom MasterCard - needs confirmation.

Credit Card:
Maybank Amex - auto-populate billing address usable. Confirmed by aiman04 (v4, 116, 2320) - No longer usable

NON-Accepted cards:
Gift/Debit/Prepaid card:
AmBank NextG - snipersnake (v4, 117, 2322)

Credit Card:
CIMB MasterCard - not usable. Confirmed by whtan2000 (v4, 120, 2398)
Maybank MasterCard - not usable. Confirmed by whtan2000, VashTheStampede and Muchi
Maybank VISA - not usable. Confirmed by VashTheStampede and myself
Standard Chartered Mastercard - not usable. Confirmed by logic_life (v4, 118, 2343)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ASIA PSN (Hong Kong, Singapore)

Accepted cards:
Gift/Debit/Prepaid card:
AmBank NextG - usable for SG PSN. Random SG address used. Ryo (2, 29)
Public Bank VISA Electron - altered billing address. Country is under Singapore but with a Malaysian address. Confirmed by skincladalien (v4, 118, 2355)

Credit Card:
Maybank Amex - Confirmed by aiman04 (v4, 118, 2348)
Maybank Mastercard - auto-populate billing address usable. My own experience.
MBF MasterCard - Confirmed by lorddevil (v4, 118, 2341)
Standard Chartered Mastercard - Confirmed by logic_life (v4, 118, 2343)

NON-Accepted cards:
Gift/Debit/Prepaid card:

Credit Card:
Notes from the community:
- In billing address, make sure the postal code matches the city & state, US PSN server checks that! Other lines like street, I think should be OK. - aiman04 (v4, 120, 2388)
- Check whether your credit card permits online transactions. - in reference to the post by whtan2000 (v4, 121, 2407)
Note:
1. Bracket beside names are for (thread version, page, post#)
2. Please state whether the billing address that you used with your purchase is the one from your PSN account, which is auto-populated when you check out
-OR-
the billing address was altered abit before you check out. Example: Malaysia address but US postcode.
Lol thank God I saved everything on MWord..  laugh.gif

If any of you guys are using other Credit/Debit card on ANY PS Store(be it UK, Aussie, Japan, HK or other), kindly stated in here using this following format:

USABLE / NOT USABLE (select which one that is applicable)
PSN Region : (HK, JAPAN, US, UK. etc etc)
Debit/Credit Card Name : (for example, Citibank Business credit card)
Debit/Credit Card Type : (VISA, AMEX, MASTERCARD or others)
Card Issuer Name : (usually name of the Bank)
Billing Address : refer to the #Note area on the above quote


This list will be updated from time to time if there's a new addition to the list. icon_rolleyes.gif

ISSUES


American Axpress Card No Longer Usable.

Based on the source from Official Sony Playsation Forum, it seem SCEA has impose AVS(Address Verification System) for all credit card used in US PSN. All card that was not issued from USA wont be accepted into the system which means Maybank Amex user are screwed


Entropay


Sony finally has blocked Entropay from being used for US PSN. any futher attempt is FUTILE unless Sony backed down & let others use Entropay into US PSN. But the issue wont settle since Sony has issue an AVS for all the card keyed into the system. Now we're double screwed








Hope & Alternatives


Since the only method that Sony permitted us to use is tru US PSN Card, there are 3 options now;

OPTION 1: Buy from your favorite seller/online store in LY.N Garage Sales

Some seller like pbbseller(Impulse Megastore) & others sell US PSN card at a decent price and some reported that you'll get the code sms'd to you in 1 minute(source Mgsrulz).
Even Gamershideout carry this card albeit a bit expensive compare to the rest but nonetheless it still consider convenient compare to the rest of the 2 option


OPTION 2: Buy from Play-Asia or Amazon


If you fancy to get the physical card with you then you can look for this 2 alternative site. There's others online shopping site offer the card but bear in mind that you need to pay the posting expenses for the item (except for PA)


OPTION 3: Buy from maximuscards.com or Ebay seller


Maximuscards.com provide convenience for those who have paypal account and based on my experience, the codes will be send to you via email around 1-2 minutes. But keep in you mind that the price are bit expensive.

if you buying from ebay, MAKE SURE you read the TRANSACTION DETAILS first. If there's something like "i'll email you the new username & password...blabla BS BS.." i can say is it's 90% scam and your PS3 are in the risk to be banned by Sony. sure, you still get the USD150 for the price of USD50, but if the seller use a stolen Credit Card to fund money to the account then your PS3 MAC address will be banned and you're force to play PS3 game offline. Keep in mind that there's only USD10, USD20 & USD50 card are OFFICIALLY from Sony. There's no USD150 card or winning from lucky draw or whatever BS they may say . i know there's some legitimate seller using this method but my advise is, better safe than sorry

back to the point, there's some seller in Ebay selling the code just like maximuscards with the price range difference around 1-3 dollar cheaper and transaction usually take around 5 minutes depending who the seller is and what his dealing method(verification email and such). the only issue in this method is TRUST. if you want to try out, start with USD10 first to experiment the seller's responsiveness


OPTION 4: Buy from Amazon.com


Amazon now offer 10,20 & 50 USD PSN code. it work just like maximus card without the extra charges(the code will be prompt on the screen after payment is complete). You can buy directly using credit card but make sure the seller is "Amazon Digital Services, Inc." as you can see the word Sold by Amazon Digital Services, Inc. below the product. Why this is matter coz others than Amazon Digital Services, Inc. PSN cards are actually selling the physical card that will be posted to your address with a shipping fee.

The catch? it need US address as the item restriction is set for US resident only. but fear not, you can register vPost account (http://www.vpost.com/malaysia/) and create a US address for you. I dunno whether you can just use random US address from google search or not.

-all credits goes to Synco for this one

This how I get goodies from all 3 regions!
UK PSN - Ask mum to credit my account (can't find another way)
US PSN - using Tunemoney visa card linked to Entropay.
SG PSN - using Tunemoney visa directly!

I suggest pals refrain from buying R2 titles especially if they plan to be getting DLC unless they have a way to purchase from one of the European PSN stores, in which case they should share the knowledge!

during registration SG account, I gave them [email protected] address/postcode in SG.. After finished my shopping with PSN SG, just fill up all your CC details. When the billing address pop up, just skip it. Done.. rclxms.gif I do believe that for SG PSN, Malaysian CC is widely acceptable. Not like PSN EU, I tried so many CC (visa and mastercard). All failed.. not sure about Amex shakehead.gif

www.entropay.com use this virtual visa card , link it to ur real credit card , transfer fund from ur real credit card to the virtual entropay visa card, input the details of the virtual entropay visa card into psn US billing details.

in psn us billing address use fake US address preferably from alaska cause that state no sale tax.
