Is it dodgy to do this? Paypal share your address with Sony, so surely when Sony see you're using a UK paypal address to fund a US account, they could close it down?

never used PayPal myself to fund. I've always used credit card. I buy my games on amazon us as they are cheaper and my address is a Wal-Mart over there

I ended up buying $10 credit from the amazon store instead.

You need to use a US address to open a US Paypal account,

Entropay can help you get a virtual US credit card too.

This is how I get access to HULU.

Did do in the end. Only needed $5 which is why I wanted to go down the Paypal route, but $10 was only £6 at amazon so just did that instead.

I had do something similar when i really wanted to play Xenogears.

Is this a totally separate US Amazon account? Or you just added a US address as an extra shipping address on your UK account?
