    Billing confirmation email - wrong name


    After recently buying a new game, I received my confirmation of purchase email but it was addressed to my old name. Even though I've changed my details on my microsoft account, the emails I receive are addressed to my former name - what can I do to change
    this?

    Thanks in advance

    :)

    Billing confirmation email - wrong name

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'd changed my name on my account some time ago, probably pushing onto two years now, that's what so confusing about this issue. Any idea why the info wouldn't have updated in that time?

    Hi Arthur,

    Thanks for reaching out to us in the forums for this issue. If you'd like to ensure that the account information is completely updated to your satisfaction concerning your name, you may wish to double check that these changes took effect already by doing
    the following:

    1. Sign in to
      your Microsoft account
      .
    2. Select Your info.
    3. Select Edit name to change the name on your account.
    Please bear in mind that after any change that is made to your account (security, personal info, etc), it will take 30 days to fully register with the account or get fully updated. If you made the change to your name within the past 30 days, then that may
    be why your old name was listed there on the confirmation email.

    I hope that this information helps out!
