How to fund PSN account in Nigeria and Unsupported Countries

PS5 DualSense - get psn card in nigeria and unsupported countries

It’s hard but not impossible to fund PSN account in Nigeria and other unsupported countries directly not listed on PlayStation Network. There are two ways to play games on your PS4 console; you either buy a CD or get a digital download. For unsupported countries and Nigerians, most gamers buy CDs, while the few that get digital games have to drop off their console and get charged exorbitant prices for this service.

Since I got my PS4, I bought an Uncharted 4 CD and every other game I’ve played since then has been bought online from PSN Store and downloaded digitally. This is better for me because I can easily switch between games and play on my PS4 console, those buying CDs have to go through the stress of ejecting CDs and inserting another when they want to try out different games on their console.

There are advantages and disadvantages to getting games digitally/CDs as some would argue. CD buyers will say they can sell game CDs or trade for another game when a game has been completed; while others will argue they wouldn’t have to worry about Hard Disk crashes. Buying games digitally require you have a huge volume of data and fast internet to download; if these conditions are meant I still think it’s better to download PlayStation games digitally than to buy CDs.

Opening a Verified PSN Account in Nigeria

It’s impossible to open a Nigeria PSN account. The only way to have a working PSN account in Nigeria is if you open an account with US information. You can sign up for a PSN account directly on your PlayStation 4 console if you have your WIFI connected, this step is easy and straightforward as your console gets activated immediately for the PSN account you have created.

When signing up for a PlayStation Network account on your console, select United States as Origin. Now you can select any US state but some US states get charged tax money when buying games online so you have to avoid this. States like Florida, Northern California, Alabama and Oregon do not get charged extra for buying games on PSN; use one of these and Google the state ZIP code as it would be required in the process of signing up for a US PSN account. When you are done registering you will be asked if you want to add your credit card as payment method, do not enter. Getting a US account will let you fund PSN account in Nigeria.

Buying a PSN Gift Card – Fund PSN Account in Nigeria

Now that you have a US PSN account, you will need a US PSN card to fund your Wallet in order to buy games or anything you wish on the PSN account. I’ve made purchases on Amazon and Offgamers, I would recommend Offgamers as they have more US PSN card options and you will need to register as a US resident for you to purchase the gift card on Amazon.

  • Sign up for an account on Offgamers, make sure to enter correct information and phone number as a code will be sent to your phone for verification.
  • Make US PSN gift card purchase here.
  • Pay with your credit card or with your Nigerian PayPal account, I normally pay with my PayPal since I have a Dollar card connected to the account.
  • Offgamers will send you emails when you sign up and your order details when it has been completed.
  • The US PSN gift card code is also completed immediately.

How to Finally Fund PSN Account in Nigeria

Since you have created a US PSN account on your console the rest would be easy. There are two ways to apply the code, you can do it directly from your PS4 console or on the web by signing-in to your PSN account. To do it on the console, put on the PS4 and make sure it’s connected to the internet. Open the store and select “Wallet” from the menu shown at the left side of your screen, select Redeem Codes and enter your 12 digit PIN. See the other way below:

  • Sign-in to PlayStation Store.
  • Hover the mouse on top of your user ID at the top-right corner to bring out account options. Select Account Settings.

You can buy as many US PSN Card many times as possible, just follow the above steps to fund Wallet. You can also buy PlayStation Plus membership card to get exclusive access to top games free and exclusive discount on games on PlayStation Store. Now that your wallet has been funded, you can start buying games directly on your console from PlayStation Store. I normally download my games with Spectranet’s unlimited night browsing. See all available unlimited data plans in Nigeria.

If you really love your console you ought to have a UPS connected with it, this way you can shut it down yourself when PHCN takes power. Downloading a game while power is taken away suddenly on the console will corrupt your games.

  16. Hey biodun they did not accept my paypal I tried inputting the code from off gamers to my ps4 direct it worked but I am not still logged into my ps plus

  17. Hello Biodun,

    I need your help. My eleven year old son is driving me up the wall!

    I used your hacks and bought a $10 card for him. He inhaled it and now I want to give him a present that I have been promising him since 1412.

    Only to get to OffGamers and no PayPal. Just Yandex and ChinaWallet. And the OffGamers chatbot does not seem to like.

    Please help a desperate parent!

    I am about to go crazy

    • Hello Ma’am, sorry about that. I just tried now on OffGamers and I saw PayPal as a payment option. Maybe you should try again.

      There are also other options like Card payment.

    • PayPal is still an option ma’am. I still purchased using OffGamers/PayPal yesterday(all thanks to Biodun’s post)
      I would advise you are already login to your PayPal account (on same system), so OffGamers can automatically redirect you to your logged-on Portal.
      Hope this helps.

  18. Thanks, Biodun. I appreciate it. I eventually bought it from Amazon which had been behaving funny. Peace Restored.

    PS The chatbot eventually told me that I was not allowed to use online payment channels because of some verification issue.

  19. Thanks, Biodun. I didn’t know some states in the USA are not paying tariff on this, saves me a useful slim wad going this route to get cool PNS.

  20. Thank you so much for the breakdown. You are so helpful and now I can play Modern Warfare and Borderlands 3 online with PlayStation plus. Thank you!!

  21. Thanks again biodun, i successfully created the account using a New York postal code and city name but going back to the playstation web page, the ps plus pages shows an error about “too many redirects”

  22. Lol, i find this funny because I purchase Ps Plus subscription cards frequently. My last subscription expired in October. In reality it is quite easy to purchase playstation redeem codes. But unfortunately not directly from the ps store directly. What I recommend is that you look around for online gaming stores that do digital delivery and accept Nigerian cards. for example, the first time I subscribed for PS Plus i purchased the Gift Card from . At first I was skeptical about buying from a retailer I had not used before but did some search about them. They offer quick delivery within seconds. Another what I personally use right now is the Its an SA store which I registered my account under and is actually cheaper in terms of foreign exchange, so Ive been using it ever since. Ive been using them for a while now and got my pals to do the same. They recognise Nigerian Cards and have a direct connection with GT-Bank for transactions. Its all quite easy and fast, the delivery is done the instant you pay, takes me 2 mins to make a purchase. Hope this was helpful.

  23. My cousin kept going on about the Komani PES 2020 he downloaded, and would often talk about how this post was useful to him (too techy I don’t understand what he says sometimes) . He has this fad for games and you just plused it with your post and he is so excited now. Thanks a lot, Biodun!

  24. Hello Biodun. Your article has been helpful, but I can’t get through payment with off gamers, they keep telling me that my payment couldnt be processed. What do you think could be the problem? Thanks
