For those still struggling every time the new PS5 restock hits the shelves, there might be something that they are doing wrong when trying to purchase online leading to them missing out on the big purchase.
PS5 online retailers are usually being flocked by masses, gamers and scalpers alike, all trying to get their hands on the next generation console.
The Importance of PS5 Notification Providers
Scalpers have reportedly caused a huge problem for gamers since purchasing the PlayStation 5 online has proven really difficult to do. Sadly, these scalpers go ahead of players, purchase a number of PS5 restocks, then resell them for really marked up prices. This has made it really difficult for those wanting to purchase the console without having cash equivalent to twice the original price (which is what the console usually sells for.)
One thing buyers have to do in order to buy the PlayStation 5 console online whenever new stock hits the shelves is to first know about them. While there are premium services that buyers can subscribe to that update them whenever a new PS5 restock goes online, paying extra for notifications alone might not be too appealing.
PS5 Twitter Notification
This is why there are certain Twitter accounts dedicated to updating players whenever a new PS5 restock comes online. Usually, these notifier accounts also give details about the Xbox Series X restock since they are also reportedly hard to purchase. The good news about these Twitter accounts is that buyers can simply turn on notifications whenever new tweets regarding PS5 stocks come. This would then allow the buyers to move quickly and purchase the console.
Despite getting the notification and moving quickly, there could be something that buyers are doing wrong which has caused them the opportunity to buy the new PlayStation 5.
A PS5 notifier on Twitter, PLAYSTATION 5 RESTOCK and Rumors, indicated that when buying the PS5 restock on Best Buy, it is important to keep waiting when the PlayStation 5 has been "add to cart" and not refresh the page! Refreshing the page could mean losing the opportunity to buy the PlayStation 5.
Buy the PS5 Online
A certain Twitter user named Nicky Bufalino noted that he has used his laptop to be able to add the item to their cart. Once they were able to do that, they then switched over to the mobile app in order to check the cart. It is important not to panic when the Home Screen looks empty. When checking the cart once again, buyers will be able to find the PS5 to added.
While chances of getting the new PS5 restock have increased, they are still very thin. This is why it is important to act quick as soon as the PS5 twitter notifications reach the interested buyers' phones. Aside from moving fast, it is important to have everything ready at every given time in order to simply purchase and check out.
I used my laptop to add item to the cart. If/once I was able to do that. Switch to the mobile app and check your cart. at the Home Screen it would look empty but I went into the cart and the PS5 was there I was able to check out. Worked for me and helped someone get one same way— Nicky Bufalino (@_nicotre) March 12, 2021
