Does Paypal work for anyone right now?

Over a week ago, my Paypal was able to purchase points through XBL.  Now it can't and it's been like that for a long while now.  I get this message:

"This action cannot be performed at this time. Please try again later. For more information, go to"

Before, I tried adding my credit card before but it kept saying invalid credit card number so Paypal was a great alternative when it was working.  Now that Paypal stopped working for me, I still get invalid credit card number.  I tried multiple cards.  I tried other family members cards.  Nothing.  I matched all the billing info correctly and all the cards are in good standing.

It wouldn't be so bad if everything on XBL can be bought with points because I can purchase points online somewhere else for now.  But some Games on Demand seems like it cannot be bought with points which leaves me stuck where I am now.  Can Microsoft think about making Games on Demand buyable by points someday as well?

In the meantime, can anyone else purchase points/games by Paypal right now or is it just me?




Question Info

Last updated July 4, 2018 Views 0 Applies to:

If you're trying to buy an On Demand game from your console, when the confirmation screen first opens, press X to change the payment type to Microsoft Points. That's one problem solved (hopefully), but I know nothing specific about the PayPal issue. Possibly try making sure there is enough money already available in your PayPal account to cover the cost of the points and that might help.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
