  1. Can I use store credit without adding a payment option?


    I recently accumulated enough points to get a microsoft gift card, which I redeemed, but when I try to make an online purchase, it requires me to add a payment method. The card I redeemed has enough to cover the purchase and taxes, but does not come with a gift card code. Is there any way to access the gift card code so that I can register it as a payment method, or do I need to add a debit or credit card to my account before I can make use of the store credit I received in the form of the gift card?

    :)

    Hi Ortizgab,



    I suggest you to follow the steps given below and check:


    • Open the Store and tap the user icon on top. Tap or click
      payment options. This opens the web browser where you can add or remove payment options.

    • To get started, tap or click
      Add payment option. Enter your credit card or PayPal information, and then click or tap
      next.


    Hope this information helps!

  3. not able to add payment option

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing currently.

    I would appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.

    • Is this the first time your facing this issue?
    • Did you contact your bank, like the message suggests?
    I suggest you to retype your debit card number without spaces, commas, or other characters that aren't numbers and also verify that the billing address, expiration date, and name listed for your payment option are correct. If you are using a new payment
    option, verify that it has been activated.

    APO Option for Microsoft Account Payment Options

    • Where are you trying to add the APO address?

    Under "Account">""Payment Options">"Add Payment Option">"Choose Payment Option to Add">"Add a credit card or debit card", the drop down menu for "State" does not include AE or AP.

    • Are you getting any error message while updating the address?
    When I put "APO" in the "City" field, the error is: "Check the city in your address. There appears to be an error in it."
