i believe the 3 month ps plus voucher (£20) is the lowest amount which does not need a credit card on file. your get access to the 3 free games per month but also the 20 free ps4 games. PS Plus Users on PS5 Can Claim 24 Games for Free Right Now

imo the 3 best online games which are free to download and play online ( no ps plus needed) are - call of duty warzone, fortnite and apex legends. each game has Micro transactions but there is no need to buy anything. check out youtube to get an idea of what the games are like.

yes, it's all done on the ps5.

once you claim / download them, they will be on your account but your need ps plus to play them. just like the monthly free ps plus games.

Shopto is £41 for a years subscription, you buy a digital code and redeem it on the play station store on the ps5.

12 month ps plus is currently £24.99 on the ps store for new users.

pick up psn credit online to make it even cheaper. (Eg shopto, cdkeys)

You already have PayPal associated with your account.

Not familiar with accessing PSN account details on PC but I would've thought that you'd be able to view payment methods associated with your PSN account. If your paypal then is associated when buying the subscription then just select 'pay with paypal' rather than 'add paypal'

I've just signed into my PSN account using a browser.
  1. Click your profile pic on the top right
  2. Payment management
Check the paypal account listed here is the one you want to use.
If it isn't:
  1. click it & select 'remove'
  2. add the correct paypal payment method
If it is:
  1. Click it & select 'change default payment method'
You should then be able to make the purchase with your paypal account being charged.

Ah okay. Good luck in getting it sorted. Personally I'd go with the option then of using your bank card. You can always remove it from your account after making the purchase.

Or, buy a PSN topup card to add funds to your account
This is always my preferred option.
Top up cards are cheaper or face value at the very least, & there’s no danger of someone having a spending spree on your linked bank card if you were unfortunate enough to get hacked.

Not really, there was a big hack a few years ago. Main one is that people use the same password for everything or weak passwords. Also if you have a phone add 2FA to your psn account, makes it more secure.
