Buying in-game items through Fortnite store

V-Bucks are used to buy items in the Fortnite store. The purchasing flow for a child account buying in-game items using the family manager wallet (within a monthly spending limit) is outlined in the images below.

Buying V-Bucks through PlayStation Store

V-Bucks can also be purchased through PlayStation Store. The purchasing flow for a child account buying in-game consumables using the family manager wallet (within a monthly spending limit) is outlined in the images below.

Please note, this type of purchase can only be refunded if the in-game consumable is faulty, as stated in the PlayStation Store refund policy.

How to control child spending on Fortnite

It is important that every player using PlayStation Network has an age-appropriate account. Child accounts (under-18s) require a family manager to be assigned during set up. This adult account can then set parental settings, Play Time controls and monthly spending limits

A child account doesn't have a PlayStation Wallet, and can only make purchases using funds from the family manager wallet within a monthly spending limit. This limit is automatically set to 0 when the account is created.
