    Paying for a subscription with Microsoft account money


    I'm trying to buy a gamepass ultimate membership with my xbox live money. I have $15. I want to use that as my payment option, but it keeps asking me for a credit card. Why?

    :)

    Because games pass is subscription, you need one for future payment.

    Paying for a subscription with Microsoft account money

    Placing data on a payment method, such as a credit card, is a common practice in digital service subscriptions, see Spotify for example. It is a way to protect both the company that offers the service and the one who is interested in the service. Live
    Gold is no different.

    Paying for a subscription with Microsoft account money

    Hello UnDead Maia,

    We thank you for bringing this inquiry to our forums community, and understand that this concerns an inability to purchase an Xbox Ultimate subscription using your Microsoft account currency.

    The reason for this is that the service is requiring that you provide the amount for this purchase and then next one. The service is trying to confirm that you have enough to cover the automatic renewal that is placed when purchasing on the console or through
    the Microsoft store in general. This would also occur with a pre-paid code, but redeeming a code allows you to check or uncheck the option for an automatic renewal.

    We hope that this information was helpful, and we wish you the best!

    Hi UnDead Maia,

    sorry to hear. It is needed for further payment it is a subscription with an automatic renewal.

    Hope this helps

    Hiya!!

    Any subscription service through Microsoft does require a credit card because it is a renewing service. Sometimes Microsoft does offer a free month through their Microsoft Rewards program.

    Happy Gaming!!
