[UPDATED] Buy from any PlayStation PSN region inc. Turkey at face value with CryptoPay.me OR Crypto.com Virtual Visa Card - NO VPN Required

Posted 7th May 2020
UPDATE 19/10/22 - Transaction fees to apply with Crypto.com purchases from 19/12/2022. please see notes below. How-to guide tidied up for ease of use following feedback.

METHOD 1: CRYPTO.COM VIRTUAL VISA

1) Sign up for an account via the CRYPTO.COM iOS / Android app, you will need to provide a photograph of your ID e.g. a driving licence along with a selfie in line with their customer onboarding, KYC and anti-money laundering procedures.

2) Once your account is open, proceed to order one of their Visa debit cards. NOTE - It is recommended you opt for the 'Midnight Blue' Card as this does not require a CRO stake balance to apply for the card. NOTE - Initially, this is a physical card application and you will be required to complete additional address verification via the app. Once your card request is approved, you will be able to view a Virtual Visa version of the card via the app. NOTE - Once you have your virtual visa card, please click 'Enable International Usage' in the app.

3) Top-Up the virtual visa card via the CRYPTO.COM app. NOTE - The only option is to load the card via a debit or credit card payment e.g. from your regular bank. The minimum top up is £20. Please note that Crypto.com Virtual Visa cards are now subject to a 1% loading fee. NOTE - Unlike CryptoPay.me cards you CANNOT unload the card / withdraw a remaining balance after a PSN purchase, therefore it is recommended that you carefully calculate the total cost of your PSN purchase and then Top-Up the card accordingly. From my own testing CRYPTO.COM appear to be using a very similar currency conversion rate to that used on the Google Currency Converter.
google.com/sea…ter

Please note that from 19/12/22 the following transaction fees will apply when using Crypto.com cards:

Within EU and UK - 0.2%
Outside EU and UK 2.0%

4) Add the CRYPTO.COM virtual visa card as a payment method on your PSN account. NOTE - From my own testing I have found this needs to be done directly via account management on the PS4 or PS5 Console for the card to be added successfully without errors. NOTE - When adding the card as a payment method you MUST use the Turkish address you used when setting up your PSN account or the process may fail.

5) VOILA! Complete your PS+ or game purchase on PSN. NOTE - From my own testing I have found that any purchases need to be made via the PS4 or PS5 console directly for the transaction to complete 100% at the first time of asking.


METHOD 2: CRYPTOPAY.ME VIRTUAL VISA

This method may well also work for the EU residents browsing this site, see notes below.

1) Apply for an an account at CryptoPay.me, you will need a Tier 3 account to get the free Virtual Visa Card.

2) Once account is approved you can get free Virtual Visa Cards in both GBP and Euro currencies if a UK resident, EU residents can also apply for an account and obtain an EU currency card.

NOTE - Loading funds to the card is a two step process, you first need to load funds to your CrypoPay GBP / Euro account from a personal bank account in your name, after which funds can then be moved to your card. To keep the card there is a £1 monthly service fee for the GBP card and 1 Euro for the Euro currency card (if you choose to have one). The loading fee for moving funds from the CryptoPay GBP account to the GBP card is 1% and the foreign transaction fee is 3%. Having run a few test transactions this broadly equates to the rates you find on the Google Currency converter give or take a few pence and so are quite reasonable.

3) Add the Virtual Visa Card as a payment method on PSN (adding card on browser, iOS app and console all appear to work), ensuring you use your valid / legitimate UK billing address. The only thing you wont' be able to change on PSN is the default country.

NOTE - The opening of the account and initial loading of funds is not an instant process, verification checks will be made at their end including the first bank transfer you make to the card, have some patience.

IMPORTANT! DO NOT UNLINK A WORKING CRYPTOPAY CARD FROM PSN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.

NOTE - Where your CryptoPay.me virtual visa card has a year end expiry date of 2025, please change this to 2024 on adding the card as a payment method to PSN if you experience errors on checking out.

Q&A

COMMON QUESTION 1 - Can I pay with Revolut, Starling or Monzo?

ANSWER - The short answer is NO. These cards are Geo-Blocked at Sony's end, all payment card BINS (first 6 digits of any payment card issued by these providers) of UK origin e.g. where the customer is a resident of the UK are blocked on all non-UK PSN stores. This has been the case for well over 12 months, if not 2 years plus in some cases.

COMMON QUESTION 2 - Can I buy games off the Turkish, Argentinian or Brazilian Xbox stores using a CryptoPay or Crypto.com card?

ANSWER - The short answer is NO. Microsoft have long since Geo-Blocked Crypto-Pay virtual visa BIN numbers.

COMMON QUESTION 3 - Do I really have to pay the monthly £1 fee to CryptoPay?

ANSWER - The short answer is NO. If you simply unload any remaining balance from the CryptoPay card after your PSN purchase, you will NOT be charged the £1 monthly fee.

    Here's some valuable information for EU visitors: €5 cost for the card

    READ CAREFULLY -- Read everything before you do something!

    First off: I've read that UK residents have been able to add both CryptoPay.me and Crypto.com cards to their accounts. This post is aimed more at non-UK members of this website.

    This thread has became the default for anyone looking to get cheaper games. I've read several posts from EU users that haven't been able to add any new cards to their Turkish accounts. I personally made a new account and hadn't been able to purchase anything -- until today!

    TL;DR: Swedish (EU) user added new card to Turkish account. Costs €5 for the card. Purchased games and topped up the card.

    Story:
    I live in Sweden (EU) and only had my personal PSN account. I didn't like that Sony charged me almost €90 for a new game, while retail outlets sell the same games on a disc for less than €50 - and I can even sell that if I would want to.

    So this is how I finally managed to add a card to my new Turkish account and how I topped upp my account with money in case my card would stop working.

    I made a new Turkish account in a web browser (specifically Safari on macOS) and filled in the following for addresses when asked:

    Information:

    Street: Tevkifhane Sk no 12
    State: Fatih
    City: Istanbul
    Postal code: 34122
    Country: Turkey

    Use a real email address. I didn't have to add the Street when I created the account, but I did add it afterwards in a web browser. Login > Account Settings > Residential address.

    Cards:
    CryptoPay.me: I haven't tried it. As of writing, it seems like it does not work to add a new card. If you have an old card, it might still work.
    Crypto.com: I got their Midnight Blue (free) card. I haven't been able to add it to my Turkish account, no matter the combination -- see below**. It seems to work for some UK users, but not for any EU users!
    Coinbase.com: It worked! Details below.

    ** = Have tried Turkish address, real address, Full name, removed middle name, web browser, PS5. Tried so many times I was blocked three days in a row = a lot of tries.


    What finally worked was the Coinbase virtual Visa card. I personally got it yesterday and today I could add it to my Turkish account (when my daily block was over).

    The Coinbase card is a physical card and costs €5. They will mail that card to your home address. This amount has to be paid for using crypto, meaning BTC, ETH or LTC.

    After you've added €5 of crypto to your Coinbase account and paid for the card, you will get access to a virtual card. This is the card that you add to your Turkish PSN account.

    I added my Coinbase virtual Visa card to my Turkish PSN account from my Safari browser. When filling out this information, use your real information that is from your Coinbase account.

    When the card was added to my PSN account, I could top up my account with 10-200 TL at a time. I was able to do about 4x200TL before I was forced to input a number from an SMS.

    After inputting this SMS code, I was greeted with another page that wanted another code -- just go back and start over and it will work again. That second code was never needed for me (and I never had one to start with).

    At the time of writing, I added enough TL to purchase Assassin's Creed Valhalla Ragnarok Edition + Diablo 2 Resurrected. After that, I added enough to be close to 1200 TL that I've read is the limit.

    Please note that I've added all funds through the Playstation 5 Settings > Users > Account. I was NOT able to add funds via a web browser. I could add all funds in a row (200 TL at a time). When asked for SMS code, I entered the one I got. When asked for another code I just went back and started over - it would work next time.

    A medal for me for this write-up, thank you very much.


    Edit: I personally use Revolut to fund my Revolut card for free. I then send EUR from Revolut to Coinbase for free. It is instantly received on Coinbase as EUR. I then go to pro.coinbase.com, add funds from Coinbase, exchange for LTC, withdraw to Coinbase.

    That way I get much lower fees compared to buying LTC directly from Coinbase GUI. Coinbase Pro is a part of Coinbase and transfers between them are instant. (edited)

    Does this method still works?

    Just managed to stack 5 years of extra for approx £79.53
    This is how I did it:

    - Joined cryptopay, verified ID. I topped up cryptopay virtual debit card by £80 by first making a bank transfer to top up the GBP wallet in the app and then transferring this to the virtual visa
    - set up new turkey Ps account with different email address from console. Used a Turkish address of a hotel that I've visited before.
    - used console to try signing up which didn't work but at least I added the card that way with no issues.
    - purchased first year of Ps plus essential for 240TL via Ps app on android.
    - purchased 4 more years of essential by going to manage subscriptions > buy more in the app.
    - I then tried to change tier and was then offered either Extra for 405TL or Deluxe for 545TL. I didn't have enough funds in my Cryptopay card for the Deluxe and couldn't be bothered waiting another 2 hours for another bank transfer to go through so went for extra. Thought I could upgrade to Deluxe for the difference (140) later but now that I have Extra it's wanting 300TL to upgrade. About £10 extra to do it that way. Not that bothered about ps1 games and game demos so will keep extra for now.

    All in all 5 years of Ps plus extra for £80 is absolutely amazing!

    I don't think there's a limit to 5 years either I could keep buying if I wanted. Thought 5 years was enough though

    I'm having a hard time using cryptopay card to pay, I managed to add it once a few days ago and when I tried to use it, it said an error occured. I removed it in the meantime to add a crypto.com card which I see is now unusable as well, now I can't add the cryptopay card back. When I registered the account I used 34025 Istanbul postal code, can you help with an address I can use when I add the card back? My discord : CYBER GANGSTAR#4200

    There is no transaction fee with Crypto.com, their conversion rates are broadly in line with Google currency rates.

    Just a heads up on a simple mistake that many people may make including myself, once you’ve transferred money to Cryptopay you then have to remember to load your virtual card with that money you’ve transferred. I spent ages last night wondering why my card was being declined when paying for Vanguard from the Turkish store, it was because I hadn’t transferred the money, and I’m an experienced Cryptopay user!
    Regarding buying from the Turkey store my Turkish address for credit card on the PlayStation store, I have my UK street name and house number in Street Address 1, my uk City in the City option, my UK County in State or Province, my UK Postcode in the Postcode option, then in Country or region I have Turkey.
    Regarding paying through the Turkey store I use Cryptopay app on my mobile phone, the icon looks like a horizontal S.
    Hope this helps people

    CryptoPay.me still works for me. I had to go via my phone app though. I got the EA monthly subscription to play Fallen Order, wouldn't work through console but worked fine via the app.


    When I do it via the app, it sends a text verification to my phone but when I try via the console it just failed. Told me to use a different payment method.

I bought crypto directly from them and there is a 1 EUR fee every 10 euros.Also -reading previous comments and the numerously edited original post- this credit card method will get patched by Sony. But since I have already added my card I should be safe (until it expires), right? Should I stock up TL credits on my account over the years? Thank you everyone in the forum you've been much help!


    This is how I add money to my Coinbase card:

    1. Add money to Revolut (free)
    2. Send money from Revolut to Coinbase (free)
    3. Transfer money from Coinbase to Coinbase Pro
    4. Buy LTC (or ETH, BTC)
    5. Withdraw crypto back to Coinbase
    6. Use card on console

    I can only speak for me as a Swede, but Revolut has no fee for adding money from my card to Revolut. Maybe on weekends, they add a fee for conversion, but on week days it is free.

    I just tried to stack another year on my PS+ using app & paying with PSN wallet funds & had same error (unexpected error occurred). Then tried turning on Turkish VPN (using the Windscribe VPN offer that was on here yesterday) & it worked. Not sure how useful that is for anyone else but if you've got funds in your wallet then you should at least be able to use them to buy/stack PS+. (edited)

    Thanks mate. After trying over a hundred times yesterday this has finally allowed me to stack an extra year of ps plus. @joeydeacon worth mentioning this as a workaround for ps plus purchase errors?

    UPDATE 14/04/22

    CryptoPay.me Virtual Visa Cards can no longer be added as a payment method to new PSN accounts, irrespective of non-UK region, or re-added to existing non UK PSN accounts.

    Note that CryptoPay.me cards do continue to function OK in situations where the card is ALREADY TIED to a PSN account, but for how long nobody knows. Under no circumstances should you now unlink a CryptoPay card unnecessarily from a Turkey PSN account as you will lose the ability to buy games on the cheap using it. Note that with Turkey PSN there is no gift card fallback option to rely on.

    Workaround - as things stand, it remains possible to add Crypto.com Virtual Visa Cards to new PSN accounts or to re-add an existing Crypto.com card to an existing PSN account, it is advisable to look at this option as an alternative. Please note however that (unlike CryptoPay) removing excess funds off the card once loaded is not particularly straightforward.

    (If someone here could please add this to the OP as a community update it would be appreciated, as I no longer have the option to update the OP)

    Just a heads up, not sure if been mentioned. If you use crypto.com method, there is a minimum £20 top up but if you add it to the fiat wallet via bank transfer, you can top up anything. I had £8 on my card and needed £11 so I topped up £5 via this and was there within 10 minutes. Transferred it from fiat wallet to card and it works fine. Saves the whole £20 minimum

    Personally I do a currency conversion using the Google currency converter tool, then add 3% based on the total GBP cost once converted, then add £1 to ensure the payment goes through on the card. Never had an issue doing this.

Luckily I'd platinumed MM so won't be going back to it, probably.

Luckily I'm fairly new to PlayStation - as have a Series X too - so didn't have a ton of games anyhow so it doesn't make much difference.



    Yep,I just got rid of about 30 PS4 games myself, all platinumed and got rid of the ones where I had a PS Plus version, or found for a cheap price on the Turkey store. I think i've just worked out how we can tell by looking at the URL links,

    Whilst advisable to buy your games via the console it seems if you're buying an older game (maybe through going digital or rebuying a game you regret selling), check the PSN site first to ensure compatibility?

    There is a real issue that if you start to repeatedly send through a purchase attempt and there are not enough funds then your card will be blocked either by sony or by crypto.com so just add a few extra pounds to the wallet - any left over balance wont go anywhere and will be waiting for you the next time you want to buy something else!

    I got 5 years of PS Plus Deluxe using CryptoPay for around £86.56.

    - PS Turkish account
    - Registered CryptoPay virtual VISA GBP account as payment method, address I just used my UK home address
    - Used the PS App on Android (no VPN needed in my case) and bought 1 year PS Plus Essential 5 times, every purchase needed a OTP from CryptoPay received to your phone number
    - After buying PS Plus Essential for 5 years total, I was unable to upgrade to Extra or Deluxe, I would always get "Something went wrong" regardless of device I used, computer browser, phone or console, with and without VPN
    - Bought cheapest thing I could find in the store with the CryptoPay card, after that I was also able to upgrade to Deluxe with no problem. The thing I bought from the store and the upgrade were done directly on the console, although I don't know how much that matters.

    once you have transferred the money over to your crypto.com account you then need to move the money from the account over onto the virtual visa blue card within the app to be able to add it on the ps5. the money may well be in your account but you then need to move the money from the fiat wallet over onto the virtual visa debit card.

    lastly make sure you have turned on "enable international usage" on your virtual visa card. to do so go to CARD > TOP RIGHT CLICK CARD > UNDER CARD SETTINGS - ENABLE INTERNATIONAL USAGE

    when you wish to purchase games from the turkish psn store YOU MUST do it from the console itself. not on an iphone, laptop or browser. all purchases are made from the physical console.

    also when adding the virtual visa card on your console you need make sure your BILLING information and ADDRESS on the ps5 console need to be the turkish address you added onto your psn turkish account so they match.

    ERRORS AT CHECKOUT EXPLAINED:

    ERROR ONE:
    if you are getting the error on playstation at checkout:
    "an unidentified error occurred. Try again in a few moments"
    this means you virtual visa debit card from crypto.com isnt active as of yet and need to wait 24 hours before you can purchase.

    ERROR TWO:
    "Please check your credit/debit card information and try again."
    You may not have enough funds on your account to make the purchase - try and purchase something cheap for example 2/3 pound if you have £20 on your account and see if that goes through ok.

What address do you use as the home address for your PSN Turkey account? I assume I can put anything down?I know the billing address when I put in the VCC should be my actual UK address other than country.ps3ud0


    Wrong if using crypto.com the PSN and billing address need to be the same Turkish address, can be any Turkish address as long as matching, make sure you read instructions carefully

    Your address on your crypto.com account needs to be your genuine UK address

    This worked for me with cryptopay.

    On the PS5 go into “Settings” > “User and Accounts” > “Payment and Subscription” > “Add Funds” Add 200,00tl x3 to get 600,00tl.

    Then on phone/browser buy the PS4 version Then on your PS5 go to the game redeem the PS5 version and enjoy

I have a Crypto.com virtual visa, added it to my Turkish PSN account without issue but when I try to buy something from the PSN store I get "The credit/debit card is no longer valid. please use a different card". The card has a 2027 expiry date, is enabled for international use and is loaded with £32. Trying to buy Elden Ring (currently 599 Lira or £31.49).


    Pal the exchange rate isn’t the same as the one on XE or Google etc. Appreciate it will be cheaper but you will have to have put in a little bit more than £32. I would have gone for 35/40 to be safe!

    Hi use your own. You only use turkey address when creating the Turkish psn and when entering the card details on the console.

    Please remember to use the exact same Turkish address for both turkey psn account creation and when entering the billing address for the card on the console.

From the OP it states I would be required to unload the card and that would stop the monthly £1 charge. How do I unload the card? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you


    Fee is only with cryptopay and you press unload button in the app to unload the card, if you have less than £1 on card you won't get charged (edited)

Or we can totally shoot ourselves in the foot and pay for several years get moved over to the Essential tier with no upgrade path to Extra/Deluxe even if Crypto.com still works lol!


    If you gonna spend the cash on stacking and worried why not add funds to wallet to spend later

    FYI I have an Asian PS+ account now migrated over and can see the Ubisoft Classics are actually included in Deluxe, so this will likely apply to Turkey also.

    I am having an issue with my CryptoPay virtual debit card. I used it before to purchase a game so the card is still linked to that account with an expiry of 2024 as well but now when I try and purchase something it says the credit/debit card is no longer valid. Please use a different card.
    Avatar
    The “no longer valid” message usually comes up when you don’t have enough funds on the card for the transaction. You get a lower conversion through Cryptopay/PSN than you’d see on xe.com for example so you need a small buffer

    Quick FYI for clarity, new Cryptopay cards can be added to new PSN accounts once again. My advice however is DO NOT unlink the card if you manage to purchase a game successfully using it.

    I've stacked several years with my crypto.com card. After seeing comments from others I tried to stack 1 more year and get 'unidentied error'. This still works OK for purchasing games.

    I've also signed up for a cryptopay card. I was able to add it to my Turkey account (using UK address but country set to Turkey), and also get 'unidentified error' for purchasing PSN. Not tried it for game purchases yet. (edited)

    Just retried cryptopay (to stack 1 more year of PSN) by brute force and it worked on ~50th attempt. I was asked for 2FA which wasn't shown on the other 49 attempts. (edited)

    "There is a way you can get PS Deluxe Subscription from PSN Turkey but it's less than ideal and is slightly more expensive than what PSN Turkey charges. I found this website oyunone.com/ where you basically pay them for the subscription period, provide them your login credentials (hence not ideal for many people) and they sign in to your account subscribe. For 1 year PS Deluxe, they charge TL 525 (AUD 43.67 as per current fx rates) which is higher than what PSN Turkey charges (TL 460) but this is still way cheaper than a PS AU Deluxe subscription.

    To see if they're a legit and not a scam, I took the risk and purchased a 1 month PS Deluxe subscription. I can confirm that it works. Here is what I did:
    1. I created a new PSN Turkey account and enabled 2FA.
    2. I then created an account at oyunone.com/ It would not let me make a purchase until I created an account. I created an account using a temp email address: temp-mail.org/en/
    3. I then navigated to the Playstation Plus (TR) product page: oyunone.com/pla…s-2
    4. I purchased a 1 month PS Deluxe (TL 79.90). While adding to cart, it asks for your PSN User ID, password and 2FA backup code (each backup code is single use only). I provided these details.
    5. I added the required TL to my Wise account and made the payment using my physical Wise card details (I tried paying through my digital Wise card but it did not work sadly). Pretty sure you can use any debit/credit card and it will work, but I used my Wise card cause I didn't have any money loaded on to it and did not want to risk giving away my bank debit card details.
    6. Once payment is successful, they create an order and put you in a queue (Go into My Account > My Orders). I had to wait for about 20 mins till my turn arrived and they signed into my account and subscribed, and then updated my order status to 'Delivered'.
    7. After that I immediately signed into my PSN Turkey account, verified my subscription status, signed out off all devices and then changed my password."

    I'm assuming you can use your crypto.com or cryptocard instead of Wise. Haven't tested this myself.

    ERRORS AT CHECKOUT EXPLAINED:

    ERROR ONE:

    if you are getting the error on playstation at checkout:

    "an unidentified error occurred. Try again in a few moments"

    this means you virtual visa debit card from crypto.comisnt active as of yet and need to wait 24 hours before you can purchase.

    ERROR TWO:

    "Please check your credit/debit card information and try again."

    You may not have enough funds on your account to make the purchase - try and purchase something cheap for example 2/3 pound if you have £20 on your account and see if that goes through ok.

    20 minimum deposit on crypto.com

    10 on cryptopay

    Just sharing my experience with those who are interested.

    I first set up an account with crypto.com by downloading their app and following the steps. After the verification process I applied for the midnight card, which took about 2 days to be issued, then I was able to see its details on the app. For this part I put my UK address whenever I was asked and chose GBP (£) as my currency. After that I topped up the card with £20 which is the minimum top up amount.

    After that I created a new PS account, this time choosing Turkey as the country. I googled a random address (I opened google maps and chose a random café in Istanbul and used its zip code) I then added this account to my console.

    After that, using my console, I chose the game I wanted to buy, used google currency converter to get an estimate of how much it’s gonna cost, added the game to my cart and then added my crypto card details for payment. For the billing address, I put my UK address but the country was filled automatically as Turkey, and then I proceeded with the purchase which was successful. The difference in price was +0.03p which is great imo.

    I will also try cryptopay.me some time this week.

    As a student who doesn’t have a lot of disposable cash this is brilliant and I’m really grateful to OP and all those who shared their tips on how to get this to work. (edited)

    How do I avoid the £1 a month cryptocard charge? Thanks


    Load the card when you are going to buy, buy games then unload any remaining pence, so the balance is 0.00.
