My guess would be that the retailers merely pay some sort of fee or proportion of money to carry the cards in the stores. Sony makes money here because people will use those cards to purchase things on the PSN store and they don't need to build any physical Sony stores to carry their cards. The retailer keeps your cash and they make a profit because that cash is probably more in the aggregate in what they pay Sony to have their cards in their stores.

Just a guess.

I actually asked my manager about this and from what he could tell me, retailers make money from Sony and such because they pay the retailers a fixed amount of money to have a dedicated place in their store for their stands, accessories and cards.

I believe the store gets paid to have them, or they use the cards to draw people in as to their shop and look around - possible buying other things too.

Simple answer is that you have to sell it at a premium price, people that do this usually say it's the fee for you not going to the store.
