Does PSN accept Laser Cards?

I currently have my credit card tied to my account but the card is overlimit so I can't add funds. I have a laser card though so I just need to know does PSN accept laser?

OK thats a little misleading Bobby.
Lets put it this way, PSN would accept my laser card without any problems. It might accept Devils demons too.

A lot of Laser cards are also Maestro cards which means you can use it in any country that accepts maestro and even get cash back if its store policy (i did in the US).

PSN accepts maestro so if your laser has the maestro logo then it will work.

Suggestion: if your visa is maxed, you probably shouldn't be buying more stuff on PSN... :-p

It's not misleading, Irish Laser and Maestro cards are a little different than the rest of the worlds and can't be used as a credit card for some stupid reason. Even overseas websites that say they accept maestro the irish laser/maestro cards won't won't work with them. There's only very few european and irish sites that will accept the irish laser card.

More than likely your lase card is not going to work.

Yep it's just online it's fine to use in shops. It's a pain that you can't use it online even when it says maestro is accepted, they should just change the name over here. There's only a few websites like cdwow.ie that will take it.

I think its to do with the Irish Maestro cards not having a CVV2 number on the back of the card. Its a pain alright but I think the Halifax Visa Debit Card is accepted exactly like a credit card when buying on the net

My card (ulster bank) has a CVV2 number on the back just like my visa. Now i have never tried to use it to purchase online as i think Visa is more secure and you can get your money back easier than a laser/maestro where it comes right out of your accunt.

I logged into the PSN store and went to edit my billing details and the only card options were american express, visa and mastercard. I didnt see maestro anywhere.

Can you tell me how you have used a maestro laser card in the PSN store because using laser would be a lot handier?

Actually i never said i had used it on PSN. I said it "would" as in i assumed if it had a maestro option then it would work.

Clearly im wrong. Sorry about that. I assumed there was a maestro option but it seems that it probably would not work anyway as our numbers are different and do not work online but do in actual shops... strange that.

Maby the NUMBER CODE CARD that A.I.B give with the laser card will work.
It says that you can use like a credit card were laser is not accepted online.

I'd be interested in that code card, I'll check it out. Plus my AIB laser does have a CVV2 number but it's still not accepted in most online outlets.

Edit: Actually, where does it say that?
