Starting with the upcoming v20.40 update, V-Bucks purchased on PlayStation may be used across platforms that support Fortnite Shared Wallet (PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Android, and cloud gaming services).
 

 

Nintendo Switch

PlayStation / Xbox / PC / Android / Cloud Gaming Services

Purchased V-Bucks (as well as

Bonus V-Bucks in Paid Fortnite Packs)

Wallet-Locked

Shared

V-Bucks Earned through the Battle Pass, Quest Packs, or Save the World

Shared on All Platforms


Fortnite Shared Wallet

To take full advantage of this benefit, players should make sure they’ve linked any existing PlayStation and/or Xbox accounts to their Epic Games account. Fortnite Shared Wallet is not currently supported by the Nintendo Switch platform, meaning V-Bucks purchased on other Shared Wallet platforms will not be usable on your Nintendo Switch and vice versa. 

As always, V-Bucks earned on any platform through the Battle Pass, Quest Packs, or Save the World are shared across all other platforms.

  

FORTNITE SHARED WALLET FAQ


I purchased V-Bucks on a platform that supports Fortnite Shared Wallet, but I don’t see them on another platform that supports it. What should I do?

 Make sure that the account you’re logging into Fortnite with is the same Epic Games account, or connected to the same Epic Games account (if you’re logging in on console), that you use across other platforms. For help linking your console account(s) to your Epic account, see the following help articles:


If you purchased V-Bucks through the Microsoft or PlayStation Store, you must log into Fortnite on the corresponding platform to receive them before accessing them across all other Shared Wallet platforms.
 




Why don’t my purchased V-Bucks transfer across all platforms?

Currently, only PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Android, and cloud gaming services support Fortnite Shared Wallet. This means your V-Bucks balance may change depending on what platform you’re on. Examples below:

  • Example 1: 1,000 V-Bucks purchased on PC

    • PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Android, and cloud gaming services will display 1,000 V-Bucks available.

    • Nintendo Switch will display 0 V-Bucks available.

  • Example 2: 1,000 V-Bucks purchased on the Nintendo Switch

    • PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Android, and cloud gaming services will display 0 V-Bucks available.

    • Nintendo Switch will display 1,000 V-Bucks available.

  • Example 3: 1,000 V-Bucks purchased on PlayStation. 500 V-Bucks earned from unlocking Battle Pass tiers on any platform.

    • PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Android, and cloud gaming services will display 1,500 V-Bucks available.

    • Nintendo Switch will display 500 V-Bucks available.


The restrictions outlined above apply to purchased V-Bucks only. Any in-game content purchased with your V-Bucks, such as Outfits, will be available across all platforms.
