Do you need help with the PlayStation code that you have purchased? In this article we will explain everything so that you will know exactly how to use/activate this product on your PlayStation console, or via the PlayStation website.
IMPORTANT: since June 2022, PlayStation no longer sells PlayStation Plus subscriptions through partners such as Startselect. Instead, you buy credit that allows you to top up your PlayStation Store wallet. You can use this credit to purchase the PlayStation Plus subscription.
Does the image of the gift card show PlayStation Plus? This is just to indicate which subscription you can purchase with the gift card credit.
The code must be for the same region as your account Please note that when you purchase a code, it must be for exactly the same region as the region you have registered your PlayStation account in. Did you buy a code for the wrong region and you can't redeem it? Please contact us stating your order number and/or email address.

The following applies for both redemption options: when you activate a PlayStation Plus subscription or PlayStation Network Card, it will be automatically added to your account. When you activate a game, you will find it in your Library (on the far right of the PlayStation home screen).
Error messages / error codes For all your questions regarding error messages / error codes, we kindly request you to view this PlayStation page. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that we can under no circumstances offer you help in finding out the meaning of certain error messages / error codes.
Do you get an error message that your code has already been used? As soon as we have received the payment, your code will be activated and delivered immediately. This makes it technically impossible that your code has already been used. Probably something technically went wrong when redeeming the code, this error message can appear at the first use. Sometimes the steps below will help to solve this problem.
Make sure that you have redeemed the code on the correct account (for example, you redeemed the code on account A while logged in with account B).
Check the transaction history of the account where you redeemed the code.
Restart the device and log in again. This ensures that your credit is updated.
Is the problem not solved after this? Then please contact the publisher.
