    Purchase minecoins with parent microsoft account for child


    I have $10 of microsoft rewards that would like to use to purchase mine coins for my child's Minecraft account. It does not seem like I can use Microsoft rewards to transfer to my child's account. If I use them to buy the coins on my Microsoft account,
    can I somehow transfer the coins to my child's?

    :)

    Hi Troy,

    Welcome to the Xbox forums. I'd be happy to try and help here.

    So if I understand correctly, you are trying to add 10$ to your child's Microsoft Account to purchase Minecoins, is that correct? When exactly does that error occur?

    I want to clarify that Minecoins are purchased in-game through the Minecraft Marketplace and are not purchasable through the Microsoft Store. You can only redeem codes for Minecoins in the Microsoft Store. What device does your child use to play Minecraft?
    I'm not entirely sure what payment options they give you in-game when trying to purchase Minecoins but if you log in to a Microsoft Account when playing Minecraft, the purchases you make in-game are saved to the account.

    I suggest following the steps on the following page for an alternative to add money to your child's account:

    I hope this helps!

    No, the Minecraft Store redirects the user to the Microsoft Store.

    The parent gets the email request for permission from the Microsoft Store not the Minecraft Store.

    Following the above steps I get this also error PUR-PrerequisiteProfileMissing regardless of whether I try and add money via a desktop browser or mobile phone browser.

    This is for Minecraft on the PC & there is no avoiding the Microsoft Store which cannot cope with online payments.

    Your xbox account is not secure!!!!!!!!! Beware if u have kids!!!!!!!

    Microsoft is obligated to do no such thing. If you have a child and you don't want them making purchases then give them a child account with parental controls enabled and use a passcode on your account.

    Can't purchase free gold game. Your account is unable to make this type of purchase

    Adult account can buy anything

    Child accounts cannot make 360 purchases regardless of parental permissions from the web

    You must use a 360 console if a child account or a parental account has to make the purchase

    Minecraft not recognizing Microsoft balance

    I have $10.87 in my Microsoft account. I try to buy $5.99 Minecoins through Minecraft on Xbox One and it sends it to my parent for permission. When my parent approves, it tells them they have to add money to my account.
