    gift purchase


    I bought a game for my friend and hit "buy as a gift" but it got sent to my account not to my friends account. I already have the physical copy of the game and don't need 2. How do I get it sent to the correct account?

    :)

    unable to use any form of credit card

    Normally the Visa gift cards that are purchased at stores like that do not work for purchases on Xbox and this is through the Bank that handles the gift card because they are thinking that you are trying to purchase a renewing subscription and these types
    of purchases can not be made with the gift cards like that.

    Hi

    The option to gift is only available in the store at the time of purchase. You have to buy it as a gift, you can't gift a game you have already purchased.

    please note I put the gift card in pay pal who accepted it as
    cash. it now should be money to spend and Microsoft still does not allow purchase.

    How do you gift a digital game you have already purchased?

    As far as i know, if you've already done the purchase, its linked to your account. Not all games are gift-able, but the ones that are, you'll have an option under the purchase section to gift. im not sure you can gift after you've already purchased.
