For players that use a US account for their PS3, the option to add money into your PSN account through PayPal is now available.
After the long PSN maintenance that took around 2 days, the service went back online and PSN Trophies tweeted that PayPal is now an option to add funds to your virtual wallet through Sony Entertainment Online's website.
There is no option yet to top up via your PS3 console. To add funds with PayPal, just head over SOE's website, login using your PSN details, and you will see the PayPal option when you go to your wallet tab. You can choose from either $5, $10, $20, and $50.
This has been a long-awaited option for most players. The only way to add funds for years was via credit card or PSN prepaid cards.
