  1. Child Purchases on Xbox Family


    I have Family accounts setup for myself and 2 kids, and purchases made from my account are shared and working fine, can the same be done from a child account?

    my son has a £20 xbox gift card and wants to add it to his account and buy a game. If this is done from his account will the game be playable from mine and the other child account? Or can this only be done from the parent account?

    Thanks

    :)

    Buying V-Bucks for Child Account

    Ok reading all of these questions. First VBucks is not DLC. They are just ingame money to purchase items. As far as child account do you have the child under a family account. If child request a purchase an email is sent to parent account asking for purchase
    permission. Thats how I have it for my son under family account. He cant purchase anything without me giving the ok through the family account.

    Glitch while adding points to an account

    Are you currently subscribed for an Xbox Live Gold Family pack? If so I believe the ability to add points via purchase is restricted on a child's account. You will have to go through your (main account holder) account and then purchase the points. After
    you can then set an allowance to either child account.

    More info here if your using XBLG Family pack:

    I'm sure it's done off the parent's account, you'll be able to share the purchases anyways so nothing to worry about, if he just wants the credit then it needs to be redeemed on the child's account

    For it to be added to his account, he would need to redeem it on his signed in account.
