How to use your PlayStation 4 to top up your wallet with your mobile phone

This article explains how to use PlayStation 4 and your mobile phone to top up your SEN wallet for PlayStation Store purchases.


To use this payment method your mobile account must be with one of the following network providers:


  • Your mobile SIM card and your Sony Entertainment Network account must both be registered in the UK to add funds to your wallet via SMS.
  • The payment will be deducted either from your pay as you go account or your next phone bill.
  • Although the amount you can top up each day is limited to £30.00, your network provider may also impose spending limits. These limits cannot be changed for individual customers.

How do I top up with mobile payment?

  1. Choose your purchases and select ‘Add Funds’ on the Purchase Confirmation screen.
  2. Select ‘Pay By Mobile’.
  3. Choose the amount you would like to top-up and select ‘Continue’. Please note that this screen opens in your PS4 system’s internet browser rather than in PlayStation®Store.
  4. Carefully enter your mobile phone number and select ‘Continue'.
  5. You should see a message confirming that we have sent you a text.
  6. Once you have received the text and you have replied, you will see another message confirming that we have received your text and asking for final purchase confirmation. Messages are charged at your standard rate.

If your payment was successful, the funds will be visible in your wallet and you will see a confirmation message. You will also receive an email from Sony Entertainment Network and a text message confirming that your wallet has been topped up. The text message may be shown as being sent from PayForit.
