Sony Network Entertainment has announced a new feature that enables users in Canada to top up their account wallet to purchase content from the PlayStation Store and across Sony Entertainment Network.
Working with mobile payments company, Boku, the process makes it easier for users to obtain PlayStation Store and Sony Entertainment Network content, including downloadable games, add-ons, themes, movies and TV shows, as well as subscriptions to the Music Unlimited service. However, mobile billing only works in conjunction with select mobile network operators in Canada.
Wallet top-ups with mobile billing can be made through the PlayStation Store or Account Management via the Sony Entertainment Network website. Customers can choose ‘mobile’ as the payment option, enter their mobile phone number, and respond via SMS to confirm the wallet top-up.
“Offering customers the best entertainment content across the PlayStation Store and Sony Entertainment Network is our top priority,” said Eric Lempel, Vice President, Sony Network Entertainment International. “Mobile billing is another secure and convenient way for users to fund their wallet for immediate access to the content they want.”
