Why cant I pay with a Visa Debit Card?

The only payment option that is available is credit card or paypal, i have a debit card set up with my paypal account, but microsoft will only allow me to enter credit card details. If I had a credit card I would be paying direct through the xbox, so why is there a paypal option too? The only reason I can think of is to prove I am over 18 but surely there are other ways of doing this. Can anybody help me because this is really annoying me?

You can use a debit card as long as it has a major label attached to it (Mastercard, Visa, etc). Just add it under the Credit Card prompts.
