Cannot buy xbox live gold with card

I have a prepaid visa gift card and I was trying to buy an xbox live gold membership (3 months at 24.99$) I've put in the correct billing info, there's over 60$ worth of money on the card itself. I've used it once before. I cannot see why it does not work. I keep getting an error message saying "This action cannot be performed at this time. Please try again later. For more information, go to" Is there a problem with my account or have I done something wrong? It's not the first time I buy a membership with a prepaid card before.

well not all prepaid cards work with online services

1st it must be from the same country as the account and have the same registered billing info registered on the cards site

2nd it must allow reoccuring charges and online transactions

3rd not all prepaid cards will work with xbox live this is why most people use mainstream cards or their own banks

remeber not all visa gift cards are issued by visa check with the branded vendor for more info
