Paypal Doesn't Work On The Aussie Xbox Site

I've been trying to find an answer to this but no one replies. I want to buy some MS Points so I followed the instructions and set Paypal up. My Paypal account linked up fine with my gamertag but when you click on "Confirm Payment", this happens:

This action cannot be performed at this time. Please try again later. For more information, go to http://www.xbox.com/support.

The Xbox Support link says there's problems with linking paypal...that part went fine for me. All I want to do is buy 500 MS Points so I can get the Fantastic 4 Pinball FX 2 table, been trying since last night.

Will this be fixed anytime soon? Really would like to buy these points otherwise I'll probably have to give my money to another online site for points.

Same problem here :( I wish I would hear something at all about what's happening with this. I hope they get it fixed soon. Even an acknowledgment of the problem would be nice.

Yeah, same problem here (Netherlands). At least I'm glad to see I'm not the only one and it isn't some crap with my PayPal account.

here in portugal i had the same problem while using paypal, so i got a credit card to use, but also had some purchase problems with it, so i found that one can have only one payment method per service.

for instance, i have paypal for gold membership purchase, but cannot use it to buy games (either points or money) only using credit card.

if I change it, and start using credit card for membership i cannot use it to buy games (either points or money) but can use paypal for the games.

its stupid but its what been happening to me.

NOTE: paypal points to that specific credit card that i'm also using.

hope this helps someone.

Starting to regret not having bought a playstation, at least sone as most games translated to my native language, microsoft as NONE, i guess Portugal, Brasil, Angola, Moçambique and many other Portuguese speaking countries are not important.

I also got the "This items can't be purchased with a credit card. You must buy it with Microsoft Points or try again later." message after trying to purchase points via my linked PayPal account (Germany). The message could not be more stupid: why should I purchase points with points if I want to purchase points because I haven't any left? xD

The paypal thingy on the website is related to the new update, I think. If you don't have the update you can not use paypal at all. Neither on the web as on the xbox.

I'm in Ireland and i thought, nice! i can buy points with my paypal which i successfully linked to my xbox live gold account and it gives me the same error, "cannot purchase this item with a creditcard, buy microsoft points" I would think this issue would have been quashed by now considering it directly involves revenue, doesn't microsoft want my money? And yes i have the latest update.

Same problem here, they really need to fix this soon, or allow iDeal or Maestro debit cards to be used!
