I purchased a song from the Windows 8.1 preview Xbox Music app on September 11th, and today I have recieved the following email (translated from Spanish):
"IMPORTANT: it is necessary to update the Microsoft account for your recent purchase

I have used this Paypal account on my Microsoft purchases for years, and this is the first time this has happened. This is my first purchase after the transition from Microsoft Points to local currency, maybe it's related to that.
I tried adding my credit card details directly as a payment method, but I can't edit or remove the Paypal account because it has a pending payment and it looks like it's still trying charge my Paypal account.
I checked my Paypal account on their site and it looks like everything is in order, but the transaction doesn't show up in my billing history.
