Just bought Gold membership online and it says my account is not gold subscribed on xbox.

So I bought a 12 month GOLD account for £39.99 online about 10 minutes ago. I turned my xbox off and back on, hoping the settings would update, but as soon as I try to connect to a match online, it says I am not a gold member..

Why is this? And will this update very soon?

Many thanks,

When you buy gold on the website vs. the console, there is a delay before the console will recognize it. It can take hours to update, but to speed up the process you can try either testing your connection or recovering your account.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
