The platforms that support Shared Wallet in Fortnite are the following:

  • PlayStation
  • Xbox
  • PC

How to Link Your Epic Games Account to Consoles to Use Shared Wallet in Fortnite

First things first, you need to link your PlayStation or Xbox console to your Epic Games account. You can either do this online or via the console itself.

To link your Epic Games account using the web, the steps are as follows:

  1. Head over to the Epic Games site
  2. Sign in with your account
  3. Hover over your display name and select Account
  4. Select Connections — Accounts
  5. Select Connect for the account you want to link to your Epic account
  6. Select Link Account
  7. In the pop-up window, sign in with your console account details and confirm the process
  8. Click continue to finish

To link your Epic Games account via your console, the steps are as follows:

  1. Launch Fortnite on your console of choice
  2. Select Link an Account (if this is your first time doing so)
  3. Enter the code on this site using either your phone or computer
  4. Click continue and sign in with your Epic Games account
  5. After you get the confirmation message, you’ll be all set

Keep in mind that if you purchased V-Bucks through the Microsoft or PlayStation store, you have to log into Fortnite on the corresponding platform to receive them before accessing them across all other Shared Wallet platforms.

I Can’t Access All my V-Bucks Across All Platforms in Fortnite

As a reminder, you won’t be able to see purchased V-Bucks on Switch, as the console does not support the Shared Wallet feature. That being said, all V-Bucks you’ve earned through in-game challenges or the Battle Pass are eligible, as well as all your Outfits and other cosmetic items. They will always appear regardless of the platform — the only thing affected are purchased V-Bucks.

As an example, if you purchase 1,000 V-Bucks on PC, you can access them on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Android, and cloud gaming services as long as your Epic Games account is linked properly. Have fun and spend responsibly!
