How To Fix ‘Playstation An Error Occurred While Adding Your Paypal Account’?
Fix 1: Are The Country Of Your PSN Account And PayPal Account the Same?
The main reason for the error is not matching the country of the PSN account and the Paypal account. If your PayPal account is from another country and your PSN account is from another country then this error is very obvious.
In this case, the only workaround you have is to match the country of the PSN account and PayPal account.
For example: If you are using a USA PayPal account then make sure you are also using a USA Playstation account. Otherwise, you can make a PSN account as per your country.
In case your PayPal account and PSN account belong to the same country but the error is still coming then try the other below-given workarounds.
Fix 2: Check If You Already Have A PSN Account Linked To Your Paypal
Check if you already have a PSN account linked to your Paypal. To check that log in to your Paypal account and then visit the Paypal settings. If you find an existing PSN account linked to the PayPal account then consider removing it and then try re-linking the accounts.
Note: In case you get any error while removing the PSN account under PayPal then go to your PSN account and turn off the two-factor authentication. Then go to your PayPal account settings and then try removing the PSN account.
Fix 3: Use The Gift Cards
If the issue continues and you are done with the above-given workarounds then we will suggest you to use a Gift Card. Simply buy a Gift card and then top up your PSN account by redeeming the Gift card.
Note: Meanwhile you can get in touch with the PayPal and PSN support to report this issue. Maybe there is something that needs to be done from their end in order to resolve this issue.
