What Does Valorant PMID Temporarily Disabled Mean?

Basically, this means that the PMID (Payment ID) has been disabled (turned off) in Valorant. This can happen either for specific regions of the world, or the entirety of the game. What this means is that, if you see this notification, you most likely won’t have the option of buying VALORANT Points (VP) or Radianite Points (RP) on your account. As there are several payment options available, this may only refer to one of them, or – it may mean that all of them are currently turned off. Note, however, that this won’t affect any VP or RP that you have already bought and have in your account.

Can You Fix Valorant PMID Temporarily Disabled Issue?

As this is a internal issue (or decision) by Riot Games, only they can take care of this. Sometimes this is a conscious decision on their part, and sometimes it is most likely down to a bug or server issues due to maintenance or a game update. If a payment method isn’t working, try another one. And if none of them are working, there’s nothing left to do but to be patient and wait until Rio Games have sorted this and re-enabled PMID. Hopefully, it won’t take too long.
