PlayStation 5 owners may encounter a problem when adding their credit or debit card as their account’s Payment Method. Oftentimes, it is an issue with the bank rather than with PlayStation itself. The solution will require the user to call the bank to unblock their card from PlayStation services.

Why Can I not add my Credit/Debit Card to add to my PlayStation Funds?

To keep it short, your debit/credit card is experiencing a cooldown set by your bank, and you will need to stop all activity on your card for a recommended 24 hours. In the meantime, you will have to find an alternative method to add funds to your PlayStation account. Consider purchasing PlayStation Wallet here:

The main issue arises from the said debit/credit card undergoing a lot of activity in a short period of time, often during payday. It is likely the issuing bank decides to not allow your card to be used for an undetermined set period of time. PlayStation recommends not using your card 24 hours prior, per their official blog:fix playstation debit credit card issueSource: PlayStation
