Where's Paypal?

Hey so today I decided that I wanted to buy the 1 month xbox live using paypal. I try to add a paypal account through my xbox directly. I keep pressing on the button, but nothing happens, so I decide to go on my computer. I go to xbox.com and log in. I got to manage payment options, and all that it shows is credit cards. Whats wrong? I dont have a credit card and i really want to buy live.

You are doing nothing wrong. I had the same problem. The issue is that the button is not there. Last night it was up for about 2 minutes. I managed to add it to my account, and when I went to do my brothers it was gone. I think PayPal and Microsoft have not full integrated properly yet. This is very slack on Microsoft's part as most people on the support team can't even answer the question or make it seem that the issue is resolved and there is no problem. This is all the information I can give you. Sorry.

You must register a PayPal payment plan via My Xbox -> Accounts -> Manage Billing Options.

The other threads help sort of. We are doing nothing wrong, its just the button to select PayPal as a payment method does not stay permanently available on the page. My brother still can't see the button to add his PayPal account.

Ok so I figured it out! The paypal option only works with adult accounts it seems. This account is my main one ( I'm 17 so I had to make a fake email and account or otherwise I couldnt get on live). When I went on the parent account it gave me the option to add with paypal. Now this is the really sucky part. The parent account is completely unused and everything is on this account. It seems like I have to use an adult gamer tag inorder to get live. This leads me to a problem because I am a huge FIFA ultimate team fan. If I were to use another gamer tag would it be possible to transfer my account?

Can I confirm: are users having issues purchasing or adding a Paypal account, or is the button not visible at all? If having issues purchasing/adding, what is the error message/code you are getting?
