Cant use gold membership bought on paypal


i recently payed for 12 months of xbox live gold membership using paypal, but when i try to play online, it says " this account is not allowed to play on xbox live", does it get automatically added to my account when i pay for it with paypal, or should i recieve an email with a redeemable code or something??

I am so confused

It may have been sorted out by now, but when you purchase straight from Xbox (whether it's online or through the console) it gets added to your account right away. If you purchase on the website, there is a delay before your console will recognize it though. To speed up the process you can test your connection or recover your gamertag.

Did this solve your problem?
