    This seems to be a recurring problem wherein a parent tried to buy Fortnite V-bucks for their child but accidentally bought them under the parent's account and now cannot transfer the V-bucks. The process is certainly confusing, and the system itself
    can be glitchy at times. I accidentally over-bought twice in the same day because the website was glitchy, but Microsoft's policy is only to refund once per year or something like that. Now I am stuck with a ton of V-bucks but don't play Fortnite.

    Why doesn't fix the problem of parents not being able to tranfer fornite v-bucks to their children's accounts?

    The only option I think would be to ask Support if they can issue a refund and then repurchase them as a gift to the other account. If they are not able to issue the refund, you may be stuck with the v-bucks unless you can maybe contact the Developer of
    the game and see if there is anything they can do. In the future, make sure you choose to purchase them as a Gift option, not a regular purchase, or they will just be added to your own account.

    Sorry but in game items that you purchase on your account cannot be transferred to a different account. If you are looking to buy vbucks for your son please be sure to purchase them as a Gift and then select his gamertag to send them to.

    Another option would be to send currency to his account from yours and allow him to buy the vbucks on his account. You can add money to his account via this link https://account.microsoft.com/family

    Hello, I read your question, and I hope I understand your situation. The Xbox Ambassadors are here to help

    I myself have had the same situation and scenario with my son's account. It took me a few times to learn that you cannot actually gift V bucks by buying them and then attempting to give him away. May I suggest you go to the item shop and buy what your children
    want and gift it to the account by pressing y instead of x. The only way to gift actual v-bucks is to purchase a v bucks digital code from an online retailer, or an actual physical scratch off v-bucks code from an authorized retailer.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi,

    As in most games, in game content is usually locked to the account that is buying it.

    You could always try and contact the Fortnite team and see if they can implement your idea. Or just transfer them for you.

    Hi UncausedSoap837,

    I believe the Fortnite in-game store allows you to gift skins, emotes and dances, so you could use your V-bucks that way.

    You could submit your feedback/suggestions for improvements via the Xbox Insiders - reddit page. This is the 0lace to go when you want to put forward ideas, suggestions
    and report bugs to help improve the Xbox experience.

    Hope this helps :)
