Changing Region - Accepting Credit Card

Hi!


I am travelling a bit - so I was in the US (from Austria) and thus changed the region.

After changing the region - it was nice to find out that it was impossible to add an austrian credit card (no US ZIP code)...

And no chance to change back to Austria (only after three month). So now I am back in A and cant use the account, cant change the region and still cant add another cc.

Great...

HOW DO YOU EXPECT TO MAKE SOME BUSINESS???

Using Amazon I can buy wherever, whenever.

Please make things LESS complicated!

Cheers M

Sorry but the personal info for the the payment method must match the personal info for the account.  In this case I would recommend contacting xbox support to see if they can do anything for you in this matter.  If not, then you'll have to wait the full three months before you can migrate back.

.it is too costly for that you shouldve waited out the 3 months

Thank you for the answers!

However - even if you "migrate" for some longer time and keep your credit card - you can not use it (different region)...- and...

if travelling - why isnt there a solution for it? Why is the migration tool "costly"??

I still have the impression that things are "just a little bit" complicated ;) and by no means user-friendly!

It is user friendly you have to take into consideration that xbox is the only console that allows region migration

b region locked content is locked to the region it was purchased in and only can be downloaded from the original region

also if you want to redownload in the new region it has to be new region locked content not from the previous version

You do relieze you have to comply with billing terms of use

if you do migrate to the us but not physically in the us and using an austrian billing method that wont work

yoi need a us billing method

Alot of triple A titles are region locked and the migration tool is not a toy to be used to gain access to content you arent supposed to have access to like region locked content
