    Cannot redeem a game gifted from another region


    A friend from another country gifted me wwe 2k20. When I try to redeem the code from the email, an error message shows up :

    "Contact the seller to receive a working code in your geographic area. This code was purchased in a different geographical area and cannot be redeemed."

    What Should I do?

    :)

    Cannot redeem a game gifted from another region

    Ask your friend to get a refund. Then ask him to send you money so you can buy the game in your own region. That, I believe, is what was meant.

    I am sorry but I don't understand this part: "Once he receives the refund, have him send you the actual funds / currency so you can purchase the game in your region. "

    Can you explain me?

    Thanks

    Hello SimOkANE!

    Thanks for reaching out to Xbox forums support.

    Have your friend request a refund for the game he gifted you.

    Once he receives the refund, have him send you the actual funds / currency so you can purchase the game in your region.

    This is where / how your friend will need to request a refund for the game he bought for you:

    In order to submit the refund request, visit this link here :
    Request an Xbox digital product refund


    You can always
    contact us here
    for further assistance, but all refund requests must go through that form.

    Hope this helps! Let us know!

    Felix

    There's nothing much that you can do. Your friend will have to ask for a refund on
    xbox.com/refund. It's not possible to gift games between different regions.

    WHy did you not give a valid code ?

    Sorry your friend is having issuues redeeming your code. Do you live in Brazil? If not, you cannot gift a code/game to another region. The code will only work in the region you brought it in.
