Cannot use Paypal bank account to purchase

I bought two games on the 1st using my Paypal bank account.. which went through fine, although Paypal had to take money out of another bank account (Backup Funding) to make up for what was not already in Paypal. I decide to buy two more games today, but am given error message 80167611. I checked the error status code page, but none of the options I found were attractive. 1) Check billing address---check, never anything wrong with this. 2) Contact your bank or financial institution---why, I have the funds in the account, account is fine. 3) Try your purchase again later---it's been a week since my last transaction. 4) Use an Xbox Giftcard if available---don't need one. 5) Use Paypal to purchase Xbox Live Gold Memberships and games---Paypal is what I'm trying to use. 6) Confirm that you are using an approved payment method---can't get anymore "approved" than using a Paypal bank account 7) Check card number, exp. date, security code, and name on the card---i am not trying to pay with a card.

Atleast Xbox is recognising that you have payment options :\

For me, Neither my Visa card, or my Paypal are showing up, and they are registered to.

I actually tried adding my Paypal Mastercard to force the purchase of one game, but then MS gave the same error message (80167611) on the 2nd game I tried to purchase. I bought the 2nd game by adding a Visa linked to my actual bank account. So far I've used my Paypal bank account, Paypal Mastercard, and a different banks' Visa to purchase. Ridiculous. If I can't use the Visa the next time I wanna purchase, I am going to flip a major flip!

Hi All!

Make sure that your billing information on your Xbox Live Account matches with the payment option.

Try this:

1. go to support.xbox.com/.../error-code-lookup

2. enter the error code

If none of the steps work, you may need to contact Xbox support to check for any pending balance, locks, risk blocks, violations, etc.

-----------------

Yes, you need to link a credit/debit card to your paypal account.
